Though Mt. Ama Dablam (6812 m) features the lowest altitude among the Expedition Mountains in Nepal, Ama Dablam Expedition is possibly one of the most alluring peaks to endeavor for utterly adventurous and gratifying mountain experience. The mountain with chest lumped out dominates the eastern sky of Nepal extending along the Mahalangur Himalayan Range in the most celebrated region of Nepal, Khumbu. Precisely, Ama Dablam towers above the Tyangboche monastery glorifying the Himalayan majesty of Everest region.
The physical appearance of the mountain depicts; long ridges on each side that vividly resembles the arms of mother (Ama in Nepali language) shielding her child and hanging glacier akin to Dablam, a traditional ornament worn by Sherpa ladies. This very attribute is believed to have contributed the name “Ama Dablam”. The official record mirrors that the first ascent to the summit was made on March 13, 1961 by Mike Gill, Barry Bishop, Mike Ward and Wally Romanes through the southwest ridge.
Today, southwest ridge is discovered as the standard and habitual route to approach this endeavor. This route offers luxuriant opportunity to reconnoiter the acute adventure as we ascent up and over the unique cliffs, elevated ridges, icefalls, and steep snow rocks. During the ascent, we camp at four camping sites each at varying altitude.
The ascent between the camps significantly involves traversing along the grassy moraine ridges, snow rocks, steep ice, and sparking glaciers that undoubtedly upshots in extremely thrilling and adventurous journey. Above and beyond, this trip is also notable for immense prospect of unfolding the eye pleasing photographic view of majestic Himalayan peaks such as Everest, Cho Oyu, Lhotse, Makalu and others. The spectacular outlook of Khumbu valley will appear dazzlingly placed in front of our eyes. To sum up this venture is an immaculate blend of enthralling as well as flattering high land experience.
