Description

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.
