Package Itinerary

On this expedition we will trek in the Khumbu area, climb one or two acclimatization summits before moving up to the Ama Dablam Base Camp. From Base Camp we establish two or three camps above (depending on how we feel), before summiting. There are many different strategies for climbing high mountains. All of them require some time spent acclimating. Ama Dablam is quick to access, too quickly for climbers to simply to head to Base Camp and continue directly on up. Some days are needed for adequate acclimatization. Over the years, we have come to believe that it is more fun to spend time acclimating on lesser summits than it is to try an acclimate on the final objective. Ama Dablam is a beautiful mountain, located almost due south of Everest and Lhotse in the Khumbu region.

Actually Ama Dablam means "The mother mountain" so it's also regarded as mother mountain and female. It stands among many 22,000 to 24,000 foot peaks that surround the high valleys of this region, yet stands out by way of its classic beauty: It is a steep pyramid of ice with vertical walls and sharp, exposed ridges. And from the summit of Amadablam Mountain all round mountains of Khumbu region and both way valley's can be viewed, which is a very interesting and exciting moment. On the summit there is space for about one tent so there will be no problems to stay on the summit from 1/2 to 1 hour to enjoy the views and sunshine from the summit of Ama Dablam.

Actually 15 to 25 days climbing period would be very nice for this mountain because we will have to wait the weather conditions also sometimes for the climbing and enjoy the view from the summit. This mountain located at Solu-Khumbu District Nepal. The best climbing seasons for Mt. Ama Dablam are in April, May (pre-monsoon) and late September, October (post-monsoon). Location: Latitude: 27.51.42 - Longitude: 86.51.50
