Mt. Ama Dablam Expedition

  • Overview
  • Itinerary

Ama Dablam is a beautiful mountain, located almost due south of Mt. Everest and Mt. Lhotse in the Khumbu region. It stands high among many 22,000 to 24,000 ft peaks that surround the high valleys of this region, yet stands out by way of its classic beauty. It is a steep pyramid of ice with vertical walls and sharp, exposed ridges. Ama Dablam forms a lasting impression, as it is perhaps the most stunning mountain, together with Pumori along the popular trekking route of Everest Base Camp. Normally, we require three camps to set up above the base camp (4,570m), however, only two camps are used to spend the night. The normal route for climbing is South-West Ridge. The ascent from Base Camp to camp 1 is considered one of the most difficult days of the expedition. We cross a rocky bowl and climb the ridge frequently alternating the sides along the fixed lines to the camp II. Climbing the ridge involves severe rock climbing which leads to the top of a yellow tower. The climbing route from camp II changes significantly with the steep climb mixed with gully's rock, ice and snow. The route leads to the ramp and climbs to an amphitheatre and then passes through steep snow and ice tunnel and finally, along the snow ridge to reach camp III. The summit from camp III requires steep climb on snow and ice to the right of a huge hanging glacier.
