Ama Dablam Expedition
Ama Dablam is a truly remarkable experience! Trekking through the beautiful Khumbu Valley and interacting with the local Sherpa culture combine with this challenging climb to create a truly unique experience. Ama Dablam, a 6812 meters (22,349ft) mountain, is one of the most impressive mountains and the third most popular Himalayan peak from the permitted expedition. Ama Dablam, “Mother’s Necklace”, means the long ridges on each side like the arms of a mother (ama) protecting her child, and the hanging glacier thought of as the Dablam, the traditional double-pendant containing pictures of god, worn by SHERPA women. It is believed that a person who sees Ama Dablam will have their wishes fulfilled.
The regular route of Ama Dablam
Ama Dablam Expedition route is from the Southwestern ridge, the same way followed by the climbers who reached the top for the first time to the top in 1961. Commonly, climbers set up three camps just below and on the right of the hanging glacier, “Dablam”. The hike is modest up to Camp-I, but the challenge starts from Camp-I to Camp-II as it gets more technical in the narrow edges of ridges made from granite. These challenges increase even more from camp-II to camp-III due to the risk of glacier fall, but adventure without risk is Disneyland!
Is Ama Dablam suitable for climbing?
Ama Dablam is suitable for climbing as you can climb moraine walking, rock climbing, snow climbing and ice climbing. Comprising a technical challenge but still suitable for climbing, it is perfect for enthusiasts looking for stunning views of tall Himalayan peaks like Everest, Lhotse and Makalu.
