Around the great Himalayas in Everest Region, Ama Dablam dominates the eastern part of the sky with its attractive summit and charming pyramid shape. It is located in the Barun Mahalangur section of the Himalayas. It has a long ridge on each side like a mother’s arm protecting her child and the glacier at the southwest resembling a “Dablam”. In Nepali, “Ama” means mother and “Dablam” means sacred ornament worn by women of Sherpa community. Therefore, Ama Dablam means Mother’s Necklace. The name was given by its physical shape. It is also known as “Matterhorn of the Himalayas”.

It is one of the most attractive and appealing peak with its unique pyramid shape and third most popular peak permitted for peak climbing. Anyone who has been to Khumbu Region either by Helicopter or by trekking, the peak is noticeable and striking. The peak is at an elevation of 6,812 m. and the expedition is mostly done from the southwest ridge of the peak, the popular route. The base camp is very wide and comfortable. Climbers mostly set up three camps after from the base camp as camp 1, 2 and 3 along the ridge. Ascent from the base camp to camp 1 is considered as the hardest part of the climb.

This is a standard itinerary for the expedition of AMA DABLAM summit and the total period of the expedition is 30 days. The climbing period may vary depending on the weather and climate. If the weather is good, the period can be shorten because it will be easier to climb during a good weather than on a bad one. The amount of snow on the peak can also effect the expedition period as it will be a bit hard to ascend and descend on snow. Other aspects like group size, climber’s physical condition may also effect the expedition period.

While booking for the expedition of AMA DABLAM, we recommend you to manage 1 whole month holiday and prepare accordingly. Be physically and psychologically prepared for the expedition. Feel free to ask your queries and questions.
