Famously known as Mountaineer’s mountain, Ama Dablam is one of the technical mountains in the Khumbu region of Himalaya, that stands tall at 6812m. The glacier lurking from the southwestern face gives an impression of jewel dangling from the neck of a mountain which gave it the name of Ama Dablam (meaning Mother’s Jewel), this is a steep pyramid of ice with vertical walls and sharp, exposed ridges. Get the technical climbing experience of conquering this mountain sharply pointed. Ama Dablam summit allows panoramic views of eight-thousanders including Everest, Cho Oyu, Makalu and Lhotse.

Careful strategy is important for a successful climb. Our itinerary and climbing strategy are developed by our expert team of Sherpas who have been in this field for a decade. After our final preparation in Kathmandu, we board a flight to Lukla and start our first leg of the expedition, trek to the Ama Dablam Base Camp. We will follow the standard Everest Base Camp trekking route until Pangboche, from where we detour and climb to the base camp. We will spend a few days at Amadablam Base Camp for proper acclimatization. Rotation of High Camps is effective before making the final attempt to the summit. Hence, we will practice climbing to higher camps and descending to Lower Camps for making our body well acclimatized to the high altitude. On first rotation, we will carry a small load to Camp 1 (5,600m/18,368ft) and then return to our Base Camp. On our next rotation, we will sleep at Camp 1 and early in the morning of next day, we will climb to Camp 2 (5,900m/19,352ft). In a final rotation, those feeling comfortable will sleep at Camp 2 while other climbers will descend to lower camps for rejuvenation before making the final attempt for the summit.
After Base Camp, we will set up 3 High Camps before making it to the summit. Camp 1 will be at (5,600m/18,368ft), similarly, Camp 2 will be at (5,900m/19,352ft) and final Camp 3 will be at (6,300m/20,664ft).
