Ama Dablam Base Camp/ 14 days, 4600m

Ama Dablam is one of the beautiful mountains in Everest region with the altitude of 6812m. For the westerners it is known by the name “Matterhorn” to westerners. Ama Dablam means “Mother’s necklace”. The long ridges on each side like the arms of a mother (ama) protecting her child, and the hanging glacier thought of as the “dablam”, the traditional double-pendant containing pictures of the gods, worn by Sherpa women.

Ama Dablam was first climbed on 13 March 1961 by Mike Gill (NZ), Barry Bishop (USA), Mike Ward (UK) and Wally Romanes (NZ) via the Southwest Ridge. They were well-acclimatized to altitude, having wintered over at 5800m near the base of the peak as part of the Silver Hut Scientific Expedition of 1960-61, led by Sir Edmund Hillary. Ama Dablam is the third most popular Himalayan peak for permitted expeditions. The most popular route by far is the Southwest Ridge. Climbers typically set up three camps along the ridge with camp 3 just below and to the right of the hanging glacier.

Climbing this mountain is very technical. During this trek we want to give you an opportunity to observe it up close. This trip offers you unforgettable view of the Himalayan range of Khumbu region including Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Lhotse Shar and other peaks.
