“Explore, experience, and enjoy the expedition of the most beautiful, and Pyramid shaped mountain on earth Mt. Ama Dablam with team Asiana Nepal Treks & Expedition on both spring and autumn seasons of the year.” Mt. Ama Dablam is considered one of the most beautiful mountains in the world. Whether you agree with such superlatives or not it is certainly a remarkable peak that has a particular attraction to any keen mountaineer. Asiana Nepal Treks & Expedition has plenty of experience in organizing this expedition a key to success with full of safety on the mountain. The characteristic pyramid shape leads someone to call Ama Dablam the ‘Matterhorn’ of the Himalayas and, at least as seen from Namche, there is a certain similarity. The hanging glacier on the southwest face of Ama Dablam resembles a ‘Dablam’- the sacred ornament box worn by Sherpa women –giving rise to the name “Ama Dablam” or “Mother’s necklace”. Mt. Ama Dablam is located in the Khumbu region to the south of Everest and Lhotse. As you would expect, that allows for some stunning views during the climb as well as on the summit. The mountain stands above the famous Tyangboche Monastery, which is traditionally visited by climbers in the region. It should be stressed that, despite all the pleasant parts, this is, in general, a demanding climb, and participation in an Ama Dablam Expedition demands solid skills of rock climbing, ice climbing, sufficient experience of high altitude, and general technical competency. There are steep ice sections to be overcome at high altitudes and there are sections of serious exposure, which can be particularly challenging. If you have previous climbing experience and wish to participate fully as a team member of an expertly led expedition to one of the world's most impressive mountains then this Ama Dablam Expedition is well suited for you. The most popular route for climbing Ama Dablam is the Southwest Ridge. The climb is typically done with three camps along the ridge. Camp 3 is usually established just below and to the right of the hanging glacier- the Dablam, so that any ice that calves off the glacier typically move away from the camp. Nevertheless, a certain risk of Serac falls cannot be avoided. As with other mountains in the region, the best climbing months for Ama Dablam Expeditions are April-May before the monsoon season and October-November, after the monsoon. Experience Required: For the Ama Dablam Expedition, all climbers need to have good skills in rock and ice climbing and be technically competent. We will fix ropes and make use of the existing infrastructure (if any), however, the climbers should possess the necessary skills of climbing through steep rock and hard compact ice without them. We follow the standard Southwest ridge route (normal route) to the top, as it is considered the safer route with lower objective dangers of avalanches. We begin the approach as usual in the region from Lukla (2860m) and then slowly trek through the Sherpa villages along the trail. We take our time to properly acclimate before we reach base camp and begin the climbing period. We at Snowy Horizon pride ourselves in executing this expedition with a focus on quality as well as safety. As always, the package can be flexibly adjusted to your requirements (in case you want some additional acclimatization time beforehand, etc.) you can feel free to contact us any time for suggestions and advice. We’d be happy to take you on this adventure of the Mt. Ama Dablam Expedition with our great team.
