Overview

Mt Ama Dablam 6,812m has a structure of a granite pyramid covered in ice and climbed via the Southwest Ridge. Ama Dablam Expedition is the third most popular Himalayan peak for permitted expeditions.

Mount Ama Dablam Expedition Route

Ama Dablam climbs performed from the South-west ridge whereas three camps are set below and right of hanging glacier, “Dablam”. Despite of expedition being up to 32 days, the sightseeing, climbing shall keep you entertained and interested in the trip.

The dominating Ama Dablam peak is the third most popular Himalayan peak for an expedition, and Ward, Bishop and Gill made the first ascent of the mountain in 1961. The Everest trail on the route is breathtakingly beautiful and the vegetation around the local villages, on the other hand, the spectacular landscapes and the famous Namche Bazaar provides an unforgettable memory of the Himalayan ranges of Nepal.

The Ama Dablam summit 32 days tour begins in Lukla and gradually becomes difficult as you get closer to the mighty summit. The challenge begins after Camp 1 whereas a total of three camps are set up during the climb of Ama Dablam. Ama Dablam Expedition requires technical knowledge and patience as there are narrow edges of granites all over the paths

There are steep ice slopes and technical difficulties that require expert climbing skills to reach the second camp. Around Camp 3 climbers admire the views of the hanging glacier of Dablam, the snow ridge and the amazing crevasse. The Ama Dablam Expedition 31 Night / 32 Days tour is among the toughest expeditions in Nepal, however, once you’re at the summit, the ecstatic feeling of victory would be worth the strong efforts.
