Day 1-7: Arrival in Kathmandu, onward journey and trek to basecamp
Day 1: Arrival and get-together at the hotel in Kathmandu. Everyone will be met at the airport and taken to the hotel, regardless of whether the journey was booked individually or not. And then we will get off to a comfortable start… check in and get to know the others while enjoying a beer on the terrace and the emerging excitement of belonging to the distinguished expedition team.
Day 2: Flight to Lukla and trek to Pakding (2650m).
Day 3: Trek to Namche Bazar 3440m. The ones who are there the first time, will be impressed by this route. Even though there’s quite something going on nowadays.
Day 4: Trek to Machhermo (4410m)
Day 5: An easy trekking day takes us to Dragnag (4690m).
Day 6: Trek passing the Cho La Pass (5420m) for further acclimatization, followed by a descend to Periche (4240m).
Day 7: Our last trekking day follows the way to Ama Dablam Basecamp 4600m passing Dingboche. When we arrive in the basecamp our Sherpas have already prepared the high camps and the route.
Day 8 - 14: Ama Dablam summit ascent
Day 8-14: Climbing period Ama Dablam. We are well acclimatized and start the climb directly with two camps at 5700m and 6400m. No up and downs for acclimatizing on this rocky ridge. Spare days for bad weather or 2nd attempt.
Day 15 - 17: Return to Kathmandu
Day 15: After a – hopefully – successful climb we start our journey back. Trek to Namche via Tengpoche
Day 16: Trek to Lukla
