Ama Dablam means "Mother's necklace"; is a small snowcapped and great challenged peak of 6812 meters (22349 feet), considered the most beautiful mountain in Everest region Himalaya range of eastern Nepal. It was first climbed on 13th of March, 1961 by Mike Gill (NZ), Barry Bishop (USA), Michael Gill, Mike Ward (UK) and Wally Romanes (NZ) via the Southwest Ridge. Climbing Team was led by Sir Edmund Hillary. They were well-acclimated to altitude, having wintered over at 5800 meters near the base of the peak as part of the Silver Hut Scientific Expedition.
Ama Dablam is the third most popular Himalayan peak for permitted expeditions. Most of the mountaineering beginners start their climbing through this Mountain. A climbing permit and a liaison officer are required when attempting Ama Dablam. As with Mt. Everest, the best climbing months are April-May-June (before the monsoon) and September-October-November.
The most popular route is the Southwest Ridge as normal. Climbers typically set up three camps. Along the ridge with camp 3 just below and to the right of the hanging glacier, the Dablam. Any ice that calves off the glacier typically goes left, away from the camp. However, a 2006 avalanche proved otherwise. Our previous expedition to this peak made base camp at 4770 meters, camp 1 at 5800 meters, camp 2 at 6075 meters, camp 3 at 6400 meters and then summit with great success. The trek to base camp is one of the most stunning, with acclimatization days.
Before your Ama Dablam mountain Expedition, you would have acclimatization trip to the magnificent Gokyo valley, a land of high altitude lakes and icy glaciers. Except going to Gokyo valley, you should proceed towards Everest base camp as well, go towards the Khumbu glacier en route to Everest base camp 17,575 ft and you can enjoy spectacular panorama from Kala Patthar at 18,192ft (5545m.). Your route descends to Dignboche and goes to Chhukung valley and Island (Imja Tse) Base Camp for climbing training . It offers a worthwhile challenge and competent in using ice axe and crampons, being technically straight forward to submit Island Peak or Imja Tse 6160 meters (20210 feet).

We fly from Kathmandu to Lukla and then trek through Namche Bazaar, Tyangboche Monastery and Pangboche - before setting up base camp or if there is adjusted package with Island peak or other peaks or high passed before.
