Join Jyamchang, IFMGA-certified mountain guide, for a unforgettable adventure in eastern Nepal. Complete this Alpine Mountaineering Course and climb five peaks including Ama Dablam!
Ama Dablam (6,812 m) is a mountain of the Himalaya range, in Nepal. This mountaineering course is your chance to prepare yourself for an unforgettable adventure and reach its summit!
First climbed in 1961, Ama Dablam is popular for its soaring ridges and steep faces. Its name, meaning “Mother’s necklace”, describes its particular shape. Its hanging glacier resembles the sacred ornament box used by Sherpa Women, known as Dablam.
This 33-day adventure starts with some stunning trekking days. Then we will complete the Himalayan Alpine Mountaineering Course (HAMC). On the course, we will work on glacier climbing, anchorage, rescue systems, rope and knots, among other special abilities. Additionally, we will also learn and practice in amazing spots such as the Gokyo valley and the high mountain passes of Cho La and Khongma La.
Furthermore, we will have the opportunity to climb five peaks, including Lobuche and Chukung. After finishing the Mountaineering Course, you will have all the technical, physical and mental preparation you need to reach the summit of Ama Dablam!
During the trekking days, we will stay in “tea houses”(lodges) with great service. We will enjoy fresh cooked meals there. Then, once on the training and climbing days, we will spend the nights in tents at base camps or high camps where we will eat alpine style food.
For more information, you can check the itinerary below.
Please keep in mind that for this expedition you will need a good fitness level. You must also have some basic hiking, climbing and mountaineering experience.
So, if you are up for a once-in-a-lifetime mountaineering experience, please contact me. Let’s train and reach the top of Ama Dablam together!
I can also guide you to other summits, such as Mount Lhakpa and Cho Oyu!

Hi! I'm Jyamchang, IFMGA/NNMGA certified mountain guide. I work together with a team of certified and professional mountain and trekking guides. If I'm not available to guide you, one of my colleagues will take great care of you.
I come from the East part of Nepal, between Makalu (8,470m) and Kangchenjunga (8,586m). I am IFMGA/UIAGM fully certified since 2009.
I have 20+ experience of climbing in the Himalaya. I’ve climbed Mt Everest (7 times), Mt Cho Oyu in Tibet (2 times), Mt Ama Dablam (8 times), Baruntse (2 times), Island peak (15 times), Lobuche (10 times), Pokhalde (10 times), Mera peak (10 times), Mehera peak (5 times), Chulu far east (3 times), Mt Shishapangma until camp 3, Manaslu until 7200m, and Chulu West, Lhakpa ri and other another few more times.
I also have extensive experience of climbing in Europe: France, Italy, UK and Norway (where I work for three months during the summer as a glacier guide).
I'm also a technical mountain rescue coordinator for the 8000's.
It will be my pleasure to guide you through your journey whether for trekking, peak climbing or any mountaineering expedition. Get in touch and let's discuss about the purpose of your trip.

Our guide Phurpur was amazing and the climb was surreal. However, we finished the trip early due to a fast pace while walking and this meant we had to pay for our own food and accommodation from day 17 to 20. Which we felt was unjust as we were penalised for going faster than normal, had we known this was the case we wouldn’t have done it. Also be warned, although our guide was amazing, we didn’t get the IFMGA guide as advertised, we got a trekking guide. Finally, we did not receive a 3-day glacier course as promised on the itinerary. We raised these points to Jyamchang, but no compromise was made on their behalf. Overall, happy with the guide but very disappointed with the company and how they dealt with our situation. If the listing was properly advertised and you received what was listed with no catches and clauses we would have been happy, but this is not the case.
We had the pleasure of climbing Island Peak with High Himalayan; our trip included Everest Base Camp, Kala Patthar and Island Peak. Jyamchang and his entire team did an extraordinary job of taking care of us, always doing the extra to take care of us and make sure we had the best possible opportunity to succeed with our climb. The team is both skilled and strong, and helped us in every possible way, such as carrying extra from our personal equipment to relieve our loads etc. We would not have succeeded on Island Peak without the care, support, help and patience from a strong team of climbing guides. One area for improvement; we would have appreciated more information about practicalities, equipment, itinerary etc before the trip. I hope to return to Nepal again in the not-too-distant future and would be happy to make a new trip with High Himalayan.
1. First of all, the trip is ill-advertised, referring to Jyamchang as the accompanying guide but in reality he is not the same guide who accompanied me. 2. I asked a number of questions on the explore-share platform, most of which remained unanswered until the day I met the actual guide in Kathmandu. 3. Most worrying, is the fact that I clearly asked if 14 days were enough to summit Mera (for which I have been told they are indeed enough). However, the first thing I was told upon arriving in Kathmandu was that I have little mountain time and that I should postpone my return flights. I was also later informed, that most people who successfully summit Mera usually take a day or two more acclimatisation days in Khare. 4. The agreed plan was to return from Lukla directly to Kathmandu. One day prior returning, I was informed that due to the high season, flights are redirected to another airport and an extra 6 hour drive is required to reach Kathmandu. Otherwise, to fly directly to Kathmandu one needs to catch a helicopter flight and add another 50USD. After researching, I found out that this is true and happens in the beginning of October, however the company failed to inform me and plan in advance. 5. Hotel in Kathmandu was basic but nice, however air conditioning and TV did not work and on my last day I even had ants on my bed, fridge and sink. 6. The guide and porter to whom I was allocated, Pekma and Ganesh, were really nice and helpful people. Pekma (guide) was knowledgeable about the surrounding environment, Nepalese lifestyle, had significant mountain experience and was very supportive throughout the trip. Pekma managed all lodges and tea houses which were adequate. Food in the mountains was good and Pekma always assisted what foods are best to eat according to the location and availability. I did not experience any gastrointestinal issues. In conclusion, I would not recommend this trip if you aim for a successful summit.
Beautiful trip and climb to Merapeak. Excellent guide!
I had Jyamchang as a guide for two expeditions, Himlung Himal in 2020 and Everest in 2021. Both were successful and it was great going on the mountain with him. I really appreciated his dedication and continuous care for the clients, together with his pride in maintaining a good level of service and the eagerness to succeed that got us to the summits.
Mr. Jyamchang Bhote was amazing. Very skilled and very patient. Had all the equipment we needed. Great spot for training. Definitely worth the money.
Jyamchang is an excellent guide with western leadership experience but local Sherpa values. He always prioritizes safety and I trust his decision making during critical moments. He’s become a friend over the course of our many climbs together and I highly recommend him and his local company High Himalayan!
I would like to add that the outfit high Himalayan was very professional in handling logistics and also integrating its porters and guide into the trip and making it a group experience.There team went out off there way to make sure everyone made it to there destination in the evening and was save. Great job and will be looking forward to do another trip with them.
Really nice company very good logistic and well organized with a really professional and friendly UIAGM mountain guide. Super thankful to high Himalayan climbing expedition pvt.ltda. for the first successfully alpine climb expedition to Ama Dablam in this autumn 2018, cheers mate!
After a year and a half of planning, a new attempt was made on Ama Dablam. This time a third person joined the climbing party. Acclimatisation on Lobuche gave us a foretaste of what the numerous pitches on Ama Dablam's steep terminal slopes would feel like. Good weather conditions and a swift Alpine style climb to C1, C2 and finally the summit concluded this project. Thank you so much Jyamchang for guiding us up there! The timing of the climb (before Autumn's commercial expeditions), choice of porters and additional logistics were once again very professional.
This company made my trip to Nepal and Himalaya to a great and memorable journey! The guide is professional, friendly and everything was well organized. I went to Himalayan Alpine Mountaineering course who is a great way to experience both trekking and climbing in Himalaya.

I give High Himalayan and Jyamchang my highest recommendation. Jyamchang is everything you want out of a guide -- knowledgable, thoughtful, driven, and careful. He has a genuine love for climbing and works hard to keep costs low for his expeditions and his clients. You cannot go wrong with Jyamchang and his team.
These guides are professional and really friendly. They do their best to make you trip special and memorable. I would trust them to take care of me if something happened. At our hike in the Everest region they managed to solve every small and larger problems that showed up. If I ever go back these are the people I would have with me again.

Professional, competent and friendly guide who always takes great care of the clients. We were a group trekking and climbing during 21 days in the Everest region with the company. We were a group of friends who all knew the guide on beforehand, and knew how good he is at his work. We were very pleased with the experience we had. I can recommend the company for everyone who wants a great experience in the Himalayas.
