Description

Ama Dablam (6856m) is one of the most beautiful and sought-after peaks of the world, alongside the Khan Tengri and Matterhorn. That’s why I offer this 28-day challenge through its southeast ridge, which is perfect for expert mountaineers.

The ascent to Camp 1 (5800 m) is quite straight forward. However, from there the climb gradually gets steeper as we enter the rocky southwestern ridge of the mountain. In order to finally approach the Ama Dablam’s summit we must then walk on some 45-degree snow slopes.

Regarding the itinerary, this expedition takes 28 days and also includes an ascent to the Lobuche Peak. We’ll meet up in Kathmandu where we’ll prepare our equipment and fly to Lukla. Here starts the acclimatization process with some treks to Lobuche across Namche Bazar and also to Pangboche, Kalapattar and Dingboche. By day 12 we’ll be at a high camp near the Lobuche Peak so we can reach its summit on day 13.

After that, we must return to Pangboche in order to head to Ama Dablam. The ascent to our big goal starts on day 16. Once we did it we will trek back down to Lukla and then fly to Kathmandu, where we’ll arrive by day 28. Of course this is a sample itinerary and can change according to weather and group conditions.

As for the physical and technical requirements, keep in mind that Ama Dablam is a serious climb. You must have an extensive knowledge of the use of ropes and technical equipment.

And if you don’t have much climbing experience I strongly recommend to join me beforehand for this Everest Base Camp guided hiking tour. It’s a good option to pre-acclimate your body and review some skills needed for the ascent.

Please feel free to get in touch with me if you have any question. I will be very happy to guide you to the Ama Dablam’s summit. As a local IFMGA mountain guide I can guarantee the safest experience!

About the guide

guide profile img

I have been climbing since 1996, starting on the 8000m mountains in the Himalaya. I'm one of the few IFMGA/NNMGA certified mountain guides (Instructor) from south Asia, gaining my qualification from the New Zealand Mountain Guides Association (NZMGA) & Nepal National Mountain Guide Association (NNMGA).
I have successfully guided on Mt Everest on multiple occasions, and other 8000m peaks such as Mt Cho-oyu (8,201m) (3 times), Sisha Pangma (8,013m), Mt. Manaslu (8,163m), Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167m), Mt. Makalu (8,463m), Mt. Lhotse (8,515m) and many more.
I have have also a strong international climbing experience and extensive knowledge of the logistics, planning and group dynamic that are also very crucial to successfully lead adventures in the Himalaya and around the world. I guided in New Zealand, Norway, France, Scotland, Thailand, Bhutan, Pakistan, India and Tibet.
I'm also a rescue expert and a technical trainer for the mountain guides training.
I very much like guiding my clients in remote places, where no tourist goes. I like also discovering new routes and peaks. Please have a look to the different trekking and mountaineering expeditions I propose and contact me if you want to discuss about them. I can of course also guide you in more 'classic' routes, just get in touch with me and let's talk about your wishes!
