Trip Introduction

Ama Dablam, popularly known as the “Matterhorn of the Himalaya” is one of the most gorgeous mountains in the world located in the Himalayan range of Eastern Nepal. Ama Dablam characterizes itself with its unique pyramid shape. The hanging glacier seen on the southwest face of Ama Dablam bear a resemblance to the sacred ornament box used by Sherpa Women, which is known as Dablam, therefore giving it a name as “Ama Dablam” This peak is 6,812 meters in elevation from the sea level. This mountain is not impressive for its height but for its aesthetics it holds. Mt. Ama Dablam is located in the Khumbu region of Nepal, south of Mt. Everest. One should see some splendid views during the ascent to the pinnacle.

The usual ascension to Ama Dablam is done from the South-western ridge. This was the same route followed by the climbers who reached to the top for the first time to the top in 1961. Commonly, climbers set up three camps just below and the right of the hanging glacier, “Dablam”. The hike is modest up to camp 1, but the challenge starts from camp 1 to camp 2 as it gets more technical in the narrow edges of ridges made from granite. This challenges increases even more from camp 2 to camp 3. Some risk of glacier falls cannot be escaped but it is said that, adventure without risk is Disneyland. One should train himself the skills of rock and ice climbing and get used to high altitude before thinking of Ama Dablam. If you have former experience as a climber and wish to join in a team of an expedition to a world’s most extraordinary mountain, then Ama Dablam Expedition is for you.

Every year Seven Summit Treks organize large number of successive expedition of Mt. Ama Dablam.
