Amadablam Expedition

Amadablam Expedition

Trip Overview

Mt. Ama Dablam is located in the eastern parts of Nepal of Khumbu region.  Ama Dablam means “Mother’s necklace”; the long ridges on each side like the arms of a mother (Ama) protecting her child and the hanging glacier thought of as the Dablam the traditional double-pendant containing pictures of the gods, worn by Sherpa women. Ama Dablam was first climbed on March 13, 1961 by Mike Gill (NZ), Barry Bishop (USA), Mike Ward (UK) and Wally Romanes (NZ) via the Southwest Ridge. Mt. Ama Dablam is the third most popular Himalayan peak for permitted expeditions. The most popular route by far is the Southwest Ridge. Climbers typically set up three camps along the ridge with camp 3 just below and to the right of the hanging glacier, the Dablam. Ama Dablam means “The mother mountain” is 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. As with Mt. Everest, the best climbing months are April-May (before the monsoon) and September-October.
