Overview of the Ama Dablam Expedition
Ama Dablam was first climbed in 1961 by a New Zealand and American team. We will follow the same route, South West ridge. A trek via the Khumbu valley provides great views of Ama Dablam.
Once established in BC we will move to Camp 1 (5300m), via a long slope to the beginning of the South West ridge. This is where the technical climbing begins and the route follows the spine of the rock ridge leading directly to camp 3. The very exposed nature of the route makes for an exciting climbing. On summit day, the route winds alongside the ice cliffs, then follows the snow directly onto the 6856m summit.
What can you do before or after your Ama Dablam Expedition
We at Himalayan Treks allow full customisation for our customers, which is why we also have add-ons and trip extensions which can be perused by interested trekkers. Some popular trip extensions availed by our clients include a day or more exploring the historic sites of Kathmandu, Bhaktapur or why not pay a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage Chitwan National Park. Likewise, it’s also possible to extend your trek to link it with other treks in the same Everest area, for instance the Gokyo Valley trek. However, if you are looking for a different experience altogether, we can recommend the Annapurna Circuit trek or the Manaslu Circuit trek.
