Description

Experience one of the world’s peak climbing expeditions on the Himalayan mountain of Ama Dablam.

Standing in the east of Nepal, in the Everest area, the Ama Dablam stretches to 6,856 meters culminating in its pyramid peak.

Standing among such world-class names like the Matterhorn and the Alpamayo, the Ama Dablam is one of the most striking and stunning mountains in the world.

And despite its “small” size compared with the giants of the world, is it one of the most popular summit to climb.

The inspiring mountainous landscape blends with the rich and mystical culture of the Sherpas who call the Khumbu region home. In the language of the Sherpas, Ama Dablam roughly translates as Mother Medallion, or Mother Treasure Box.

The mountain is steeped in mysticism and religion. One of the most influential Nepalese Buddhist monasteries sites on the neighbouring mountain of Tengboche (3,870m). From here, incredible views of its brother peak of Ama Dablam strengthens the spiritual sanctity of the region.

First conquered in 1961 by an expedition lead by Edmund Hillary, who was also the first person to conquer Everest, Ama Dablam was thought to be unconquerable.

The route will retrace the original steps of Edmund and his team along the south ridge. After easy terrain to reach the first camp, we take a difficult slope, reach a steep ridge, and tackle a steep slab.

To reach the second camp we’ll climb past difficult slabs and ridges before mastering a snow-covered slope that ends in a snowy ridge. All difficult sections of the climb will be safely secured with fixed ropes.

Finally, standing in the way of us and the spectacular summit is a steep ice wall and a 500-metre slope at 50 degrees.

Get in touch now to reserve your place on an incredible 27-day expedition in Nepal to conquer the dramatic mountain peak of Ama Dablam.

Itinerary

Day 1: Flight to Kathmandu

Day 2: Arrival in Kathmandu

After our arrival and our first meeting, we will have the opportunity to explore the centre of Kathmandu (the so-called “Thamel”). Overnight stay at a hotel.

Day 3: Flight from Kathmadu to Lukla then descend to Ghat

A beautiful flight over the Solukhumbu will take us to Lukla (2,834m). Good visibility is needed for the flight, but since the weather is fairly stable in autumn, chances for delay are fairly small. We’ll descend to Ghat (2,500m) on foot. Overnight stay in tents or in a lodge.

Day 4 to 7: Ghat to the base camp

After leaving Ghat we will follow the gently ascending path along the Dudh Koshi (Milk River) in the lower Khumbu valley. After a steep climb we will arrive in Namche Bazaar (3,440m), the administrative centre for the Khumbu region. Depending on our capabilities, we may take a rest day here. Leaving the lively Namche, we’ll hike to Tengboche and then via Deboche to the Ama Dablam lodge. We’ll follow the hiking trail to Pangboche, the last village before our base camp. After a steep ascent we’ll reach the base camp, which lies at 4,900m by a small lake. Overnight stay in tents or at a lodge.

Day 8 to 20: Ascent of Ama Dablam

After one or two days, which we need for our acclimatization, we will spent the following two weeks climbing Ama Dablam. We will establish two high camps. Difficult passages will be secured with fixed ropes.

Day 21 to 22: Base camp to Lukla

We’ll hike back via Pangboche and Namche Bazaar to Lukla. Overnight stay in tents or at a lodge.

Day 23: Flight from Lukla to Kathmandu

Starting or landing in Lukla is an experience of its own. Overnight stay at a hotel.

Day 24: Kathmandu

During our last day in Kathmandu we’ll have time to explore the markets, admire the temples of Bakhtapur and Swayambunath, or even visit the hairdresser’s.

Day 25: Flight back from Kathmandu


About the guide

guide profile img

I spent my youth exploring the Tyrolean Alps and climbing some of the most famous peaks in the Dolomites and the Wilder Kaiser area. After graduating as a teacher, I decided to turn my passion into my job and became certified as a mountain guide.

My love for the mountains has taken me to climb some of the world's most famous peaks: first in the Andes (Aconcagua, Ojos del Salado and Marmolejo) and then all over Asia (Muztagh Ata, Lenin Peak and Nanga Parbat, among others).

What fascinates me the most about my job is the possibility to combine the discovery of new cultures and countries with climbing in some of these remote corners of the Earth.

Having the chance to help you make some of your wildest dreams come true is a real honor to me. And although I'm aware that the summit is the ultimate goal, I will strive to ensure that your journey is just as interesting.
