Mt. Ama Dablam has been considered the prettiest mountain in the world. High on her Southwest face hangs a glacier resembling a 'Dablam' - the sacred ornament box worn by ladies in the Sherpa community. It was this spectacular feature that got her the name "Ama Dablam". She lies alongside Everest in the heart of the Khumbu valley offering a superb diversions close-up view of Mt Lhotse, Mt. Makalu, Mt. Cho Oyu, and Mt. Everest. If you have previous climbing experience and wish to participate fully as a team member of an expertly led expedition to one of the world's most impressive mountains then a climbing expedition to Ama Dablam is the best suited. This Mountain is a technically demanding mountain for climbing in Nepal. It is considered an ornament of the Himalayas in Nepal. Although the height is only 6812m, the Ama Dablam expedition requires steep ice, rock, and snow climbing. Normally, three camps are set in Ama Dablam climbing above the base camp (4,570m), however, only two camps are used to spend the nights. The normal route for climbing is South-West Ridge. The ascent from Base Camp to camp 1st is considered one of the difficult days of the expedition

Mt. Ama Dablam Expedition Difficulty and Challenges?

Climbing Ama Dablam is not an easy jobas this mountain stands as a legend of a steep and indomitable peak and is among one of the most technical and challenging climbs. Mt. Ama Dablam is a daunting peak rising at an altitude of 6,856 meters (22,493 feet). Even though climbing this mountain needs technical experience and preparation, this mountain lies on the bucket list of most climbers, expedition mountaineers, and submitters. There are some other highest peaks too if you would like to ascend like Everest Expedition from North RidgeMakalu ExpeditionAnnapurna IV ExpeditionManaslu ExpeditionLhotse South Face Expedition, etc. These peaks are challenging, daunting, and yet adventurous summits in the world. Climbing is not an easy job and you need guides and Sherpas to accomplish these mountains. Choosing Makalu Adventure has proven to be the most promising adventure and expedition organizing company here in Nepal to many climbers as we take care of you and your dream of reaching the summit of the world's highest mountains. We also offer custom/tailor-made trekking, Expedition and peak climbing packages based on your budget, itinerary, and requirements.

Experience Required for Ama Dablam Expedition

All climbers need to have good skills in rock and ice climbing and technically competent. On most parts of the routes, there will be fixed rope, however, the climbers should possess skills of climbing through steep rock and hard compact ice. We follow the standard South West ridge route (normal route) to the top, as it is considered the safest route, free from objective danger such as avalanche and so on. The route we follow begins at Lukla (2850m) and the initial days of the trek pass through the legendary Sherpa country up the spectacular high valley of the Khumbu. Most of the route on the actual climbing is fixed with no icefall or glacier to negotiate, and most of it is concentrated on the crest of a ridge. The climb is relatively safe though exposed and sheep and not really a mountain for debutantes.
