Ama Dablam Expedition Overviews:

The Mt. Ama Dablam Expedition is one of the most spectacular and exciting adventures that one can experience. Climb Mt. Ama Dablam while also visiting Everest base camp and climbing the high Kalapathar rocky hill. This allows climbers time for exercises to support acclimatization before the Ama Dablam summit bid and an understanding of the country's landscapes.
Mt. Ama Dablam Peak stands majestically above the Khumbu Valley, close to Pangboche, the last permanent village on the route to various destinations.
Mt. Ama Dablam is a beautiful-looking peak, as its name means "Mother with a Jewel Box." Due to its shape, a massive block of ice and snow is attached to the neck of Ama Dablam.
Mt. Ama Dablam, which stands at 6, 812 m (22, 349 feet), was once less climbed. But in the past few decades, the mountain has drawn more mountaineers, not because of its charm. The mountain, despite being a smaller peak than the other giant peaks that surround it, provides an exciting and interesting challenge.
The present history shows that Mt. Ama Dablam was first climbed by people of mixed nationality, Mike Gill and Wally Romans (New Zealand). On March 13, 1961, they used the most accessible route via the main Southwest Ridge, which included Barry Bishop (USA) and Mike Ward (UK). But most mountaineers believe the first summiteers were from the British Expedition on their way to Mt. Everest in 1953.
Mt. Ama Dablam is regarded as one of the most beautiful Himalayan mountains in the world. As well, it is the most sought-after mountain to climb due to its scenic location. The peak itself is full of charm and beauty, which attracts many climbers every season of the year.
The climb to the summit of Mt. Ama Dablam, which expert and professional climbers can attempt Beginners in mountaineering can try their best, depending on their climbing experiences, endurance, and physical ability to reach the summit safely.
To enjoy the climb of Mt. Ama Dablam, the climbers need full preparation and guidance from the experts. One of the most technical mountains to reach the summit involves a sheer vertical climb. All members require the full support of guides and fixed ropes to achieve the dream of reaching the top of Mt. Ama Dablam.
Team Himalaya has set the itinerary to be flexible, allowing time for acclimatization as well as practice climbing before the summit bid.
A great adventure with a blend of immense local Sherpa culture in the harmony of serene natural wilderness surroundings. The adventure starts by following the main route to Everest base camp on a moderate path of ups and downs. we walked uphill through a lovely green forest to the famous Namche Bazaar, passing through lovely villages adorned with traditional age-old culture.
After spending time in the hub of Khumbu at Namche Bazaar, the journey continues on a scenic trail to the beautiful Tengboche Monastery. From this grand location, enjoy the first close look at Ama Dablam, Mt. Everest, and a series of peaks.
After Tengboche, on the main trail to Everest base camp, through Pangboche and Dingboche, you reach the mountainous terrain at Lobuche. The walk then leads to our first destination, Everest base camp. Enjoy the scenery of the dramatic landscape.
Stand beneath the world's highest mountain, Mt. Everest, within remorseless fields of ice, snow, and glaciers, close to the massif of Khumbu Ice-Fall. From the base camp, the adventure takes you to the top of Kalapathar's rocky hill for the best, closest views of Mt. Everest.
The adventure continues downhill to Pangboche village, where the route diverts with a climb to Mt. Ama Dablam base camp. where our real mountaineering adventure begins, with much preparation and heading towards further higher camps.
The climb is done after ferrying food and tents toward higher camps, up to Camps I, II, and III. as well as setting up the advanced high camp before the actual ascent to the summit of Mt. Ama Dablam.
From the High Camp, move higher towards Camps I and II, which are the most technical sections to negotiate. The climbing grade goes from TD to AD (Technical and Ascent Difficulty). That leads to a mushroom ridge at 6,250 m from Camps II and III in-between, with nearly 90° of vertical ascent. where climbers require assistance with fixed ropes to the summit.
When you reach the main goal and highlight, take in the breathtaking views of the surrounding towering giant peaks. Overlooking the mind-blowing panorama of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, and as far as Mt. Makalu and Baruntse Himal in the east

Ama Dablam Expedition Overviews:

The Mt. Ama Dablam Expedition is one of the most spectacular and exciting adventures that one can experience. Climb Mt. Ama Dablam while also visiting Everest base camp and climbing the high Kalapathar rocky hill. This allows climbers time for exercises to support acclimatization before the Ama Dablam summit bid and an understanding of the country's landscapes.
Mt. Ama Dablam Peak stands majestically above the Khumbu Valley, close to Pangboche, the last permanent village on the route to various destinations.
Mt. Ama Dablam is a beautiful-looking peak, as its name means "Mother with a Jewel Box." Due to its shape, a massive block of ice and snow is attached to the neck of Ama Dablam.
Mt. Ama Dablam, which stands at 6, 812 m (22, 349 feet), was once less climbed. But in the past few decades, the mountain has drawn more mountaineers, not because of its charm. The mountain, despite being a smaller peak than the other giant peaks that surround it, provides an exciting and interesting challenge.
The present history shows that Mt. Ama Dablam was first climbed by people of mixed nationality, Mike Gill and Wally Romans (New Zealand). On March 13, 1961, they used the most accessible route via the main Southwest Ridge, which included Barry Bishop (USA) and Mike Ward (UK). But most mountaineers believe the first summiteers were from the British Expedition on their way to Mt. Everest in 1953.
Mt. Ama Dablam is regarded as one of the most beautiful Himalayan mountains in the world. As well, it is the most sought-after mountain to climb due to its scenic location. The peak itself is full of charm and beauty, which attracts many climbers every season of the year.
The climb to the summit of Mt. Ama Dablam, which expert and professional climbers can attempt Beginners in mountaineering can try their best, depending on their climbing experiences, endurance, and physical ability to reach the summit safely.
To enjoy the climb of Mt. Ama Dablam, the climbers need full preparation and guidance from the experts. One of the most technical mountains to reach the summit involves a sheer vertical climb. All members require the full support of guides and fixed ropes to achieve the dream of reaching the top of Mt. Ama Dablam.
Team Himalaya has set the itinerary to be flexible, allowing time for acclimatization as well as practice climbing before the summit bid.
A great adventure with a blend of immense local Sherpa culture in the harmony of serene natural wilderness surroundings. The adventure starts by following the main route to Everest base camp on a moderate path of ups and downs. we walked uphill through a lovely green forest to the famous Namche Bazaar, passing through lovely villages adorned with traditional age-old culture.
After spending time in the hub of Khumbu at Namche Bazaar, the journey continues on a scenic trail to the beautiful Tengboche Monastery. From this grand location, enjoy the first close look at Ama Dablam, Mt. Everest, and a series of peaks.
After Tengboche, on the main trail to Everest base camp, through Pangboche and Dingboche, you reach the mountainous terrain at Lobuche. The walk then leads to our first destination, Everest base camp. Enjoy the scenery of the dramatic landscape.
Stand beneath the world's highest mountain, Mt. Everest, within remorseless fields of ice, snow, and glaciers, close to the massif of Khumbu Ice-Fall. From the base camp, the adventure takes you to the top of Kalapathar's rocky hill for the best, closest views of Mt. Everest.
The adventure continues downhill to Pangboche village, where the route diverts with a climb to Mt. Ama Dablam base camp. where our real mountaineering adventure begins, with much preparation and heading towards further higher camps.
The climb is done after ferrying food and tents toward higher camps, up to Camps I, II, and III. as well as setting up the advanced high camp before the actual ascent to the summit of Mt. Ama Dablam.
From the High Camp, move higher towards Camps I and II, which are the most technical sections to negotiate. The climbing grade goes from TD to AD (Technical and Ascent Difficulty). That leads to a mushroom ridge at 6,250 m from Camps II and III in-between, with nearly 90° of vertical ascent. where climbers require assistance with fixed ropes to the summit.
When you reach the main goal and highlight, take in the breathtaking views of the surrounding towering giant peaks. Overlooking the mind-blowing panorama of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, and as far as Mt. Makalu and Baruntse Himal in the east
