Duration: 30 Days

About Ama Dablam Expedition

Considerably popular as the ‘Matterhorn of the Himalaya’ a massively snow-fed, Ama Dablam dominates the skyline on the trail to Everest Base Camp. There is a splendid glacier on its Southwest face from which its name has been derived. The glacier looks as if it is a jewel box; hence the mountain Ama Dablam connotes ‘The Mother’s Jewel Box’. It was first scaled by the legendary climber Edmund Hillary. After his successful attempt to get victory over Ama Dablam he was soon nearly imprisoned as he scaled it without the permission of government of Nepal. The peak is granite-pyramid shaped and technically challenging after camp 1.                                   
The climbers find the south-western ridge relatively easier ascent to scale Ama Dablam successfully. The same route was followed by different climbers like Ward (UK), Bishop (USA), and Gill (NZ) in the historical ascent made in 1961. The route offers a great deal of challenges to the climbers during their ascent and descent. Basically, there major high camps are set strategically for a successful attempt. The ascent up to camp 1 is mild. But a number challenges are to be confronted ahead along the narrow granite ridge. The route gets more demanding and technical from camp 2 as the climbers are to face pitches of steep ice and snow slopes. Nevertheless, the real adventure enthusiast and the skilled one can do it. From the camp 3 , the real technicality demands for the further ascent as the climbers have to skirt around the hanging glacier or they have to cross snow arête ( a sharp ridge) and Brgschrund(A gap or crevasse at the edge) between ice cliffs, and ultimately the climbers  scale the summit. And the summit is a vantage to witness the other popular skyline- dominating giants including the top of the world, Mt. Everest. For the descent, the climbers follow the same route.
