When you think about the Himalayas, it is hard to single out a peak. Even though Everest is the most famous mountain in this range, there are many other ones that are equally majestic. And Mount Ama Dablam (6812m) is one of them. Join this 26 day expedition to reach the summit of one of the most stunning peaks in this region.

Ama Dablam stands at 6,812 meters of height. And it lies in the heart of the Khumbu Valley of Nepal. Also it overlooks the Sherpa villages of Pangboche and Thyangboche, two charming and rich in cultural heritage towns on the trail to Everest Base camp. Thus, giving us the opportunity to unveil a wonderful place, and learn about the local culture.

Also known as mother’s necklace for its unique form, Ama Dablam was first climbed in 1961 via the South-Western Ridge. This path has become the standard route. And it will be the one we take to reach the top of this magical mountain.

Although this is the most used route, it still poses a significant climbing challenge. It has technical sections of snow, as well as exposed route on ice. We’ll also encounter rock at relatively high altitude. However the sceneries we’ll get as we get closer to the top of Ama Dablam will be totally rewarding. We’ll get to see Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu, and Sishapangma, amongst other peaks.

Please note that due to the difficulty of expedition, in order to join it you must have previous experience  with fixed ropes. You should also be comfortable climbing along exposed ridgelines. So if you do and wish to join it, send me a request. It will be an amazing experience in the Himalayas!

If you are looking for a longer expedition I also guide other trips.  For example, you can check out this 45-day expedition to reach the summit of Mount Manaslu in Nepal too.

About the guide

guide profile img

I'm a certified NNMGA / UIAGM / IFMGA mountain guide from Nepal. I found my passion for the outdoors and climbing early in life when I was first contracted as a trekking guide for a Japanese team to Yala peak (5520m). Since then I have worked with many adventure tourism agencies and successfully summited Mt. Everest, Mt. Cho-Oyu, Mt. Ama Dablam , Mt. Baruntse and many other peaks in Nepal. I'm fluent in German and English which allowed me to guide in the Alps several times. I have a right temperament, I'm dedicated and I have a friendly approach to lead and help the climbing teams accomplish their goals.
