Lying at the heart of Mount Everest Khumbu region, Mount Ama Dablam (6856m) is one of the most beautiful peaks in the Himalaya Mountains. It is situated right above Tengboche Monastery, on the wall-worn path to Mount Everest Base Camp. This 30-day expediton takes you to the summit of this beautiful peak, climbing also Island Peak (6189m) on our way.

We will follow the South West Ridge of Ama Dablam, a long alpine Difficile, but it is a beautiful route, on mainly good rock, with mixed climbing passages and snowy finale.It is the most popular way to the summit. This expedition takes place in late autumn. At this time of the year, the weather is cold but stable and typically there are fewer climbers on the mountain. 

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. You can check the day-by-day itinerary below.

We will meet in Kathmandu and next day we will fly early to Lukla, where our trek begins. Before climbing Ama Dablam we will be well acclimatized from the Gokyo Ri (5,320m) ascent, via Chola Pass (5,420m), Mt. Everest Base Camp (5,364m), Kalapathar (5,550m) viewpoint and Island Peak summit (6,189m).  This strategy allows you to be well acclimatized, without being tired of being at the same place for long time.

This is a guided expedition, led by by a professional and experienced mountain guide, so you will have a high level of support, including a Sherpa team and also a well-stocked base camp. Participants are competent mountaineers, with enough experience as to climb Ama Dablam, one of the most sought after peaks in the world.

Tshering Pande Bhote Guiding Team



Mountain Guide

Hi! I'm Tshering, 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 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!

What people are saying about Tshering Pande Bhote Guiding Team



Very helpful of explore share to reroute my trip to other guide. Very happy with Tshering Bhote guides! Only thing is we pushed to fast to summit. I think that was the reason we did not make it.



I had an amazing experience with Tshering’s experienced and highly qualified team including guide Sonam Shalaka and Sherpa Thomas Vechayba. I really enjoyed the concept of acclimating for Ama Dablam by doing the Everest Base Camp trek via Gokyo Lakes and climbing a number of peaks along the way, including Lobuche, rather than the typical repetitive climbs from base camp. It is always my preference to climb with local guides who intimately know the mountain and local customs and this was a perfect example of the benefits of that rather than going with a large group of westerners. Explore-Share always does a great job of facilitating those connections. This was an outstanding experience all around and I would gladly recommend Tshering and his team for any mountaineering experience in the Himalayas.


Very good acclimatisation program and safe 1:1 climbing as I always was well looked after. Communication regarding weather and conditions were meticulous so we could adapt as we went along, increasing safety.


Tshering prepared and organized the tour very professionally. All about logistic, difficult transport condition due to bad weather, skilled guide and assistant, and overall security was under his control. A good communication and a team spirit made the sucess of the Mera Peak ascent.


It was an absolutely AMAZING experience and Sonam is very professional, friendly and helpful. I will recommend him and Tshering 100%
