Ama Dablam also known as "Matterhorn of the Himalayas" is located in the eastern Himalayan range. The lower western peak is 6,170 meters(20,243 ft) high, while the main peak is 6,812 meters (22,349 feet) tall. Ama Dablam, which translates to "Mother's necklace," is named for the hanging glacier and long ridges that resemble the arms of a mother (ama) shielding her child. Ama Dablam is also the name of the traditional double pendant that Sherpa women wear to honor the gods.

The Ama Dablam expedition is a physically and technically difficult climb due to the sheer faces and steep portions of ice and rock to traverse. Typically, three camps have been set up along the southwest ridge, with camp III being located below the hanging glacier (the Dablam). The trek is mild till camp 1, but from camp 1 to camp 2, it becomes more difficult because of the technical terrain along the narrow granite ridge edges. As you move from camp 2 to camp 3, this difficulty increases even more. Sometimes, Glacier falls certainly carry some risk, but as the saying goes, "If you get the chance to embark on an adventure, take the risk."

Altitude sickness is one of the most frequent issues encountered when climbing these peaks, which is why it is important to take your time on the way to Base Camp and from there, to continuously ascend to avoid any problems. Also, climbers need to be habituated to climbing at high altitudes. There are taller mountains to climb, but Ama Dablam is more difficult and puts your technical abilities to the test. Also, there is nowhere to hide on the exposed steep cliffs, so the weather must be ideal before climbing to the summit.

In Nepal's Khumbu region, Mt. Ama Dablam is located south of Mt. Everest and Mt. Lhotse. You can count on seeing some absolutely breathtaking vistas of these enormous mountains on your trek, and of course, from the summit, even more, fantastic views. Ama Dablam towers over the well-known Tyangboche Monastery, a must-see before the challenge ahead. It's a nice opportunity to pray when you visit the monastery which you will see as guides always carry out this action prior to a climb.

Ama Dablam Route

Your journey starts in Kathmandu, followed by a flight to Lukla (2840 meters), then by a trek to the villages of Phakding (2610 meters) and Namche Bazaar (3440 meters), where we will spend the day acclimatizing before moving to higher elevations. We take the trail to Tyangboche (3860 m), then to Ama Dablam Base Camp, where our climbing journey begins (4600 m). While building up our stamina and reducing the risk of altitude sickness, we will spend time here getting ready for our ascent, practicing, and climbing to several higher camps. We have given climbers a 15-day timeframe for them to reach Ama Dablam's peak (6,812m). Sometimes, due to inappropriate circumstances or weather, it could be essential to postpone the climb. This has been thought about before the expedition. The remaining days will be spent refining and improving your climbing techniques so that you can complete the climb safely.

Once we have reached the summit, we will return to Namche Bazaar (3441 meters) and then to Lukla, where we will take a picturesque flight down to Kathmandu where we can celebrate our accomplishment.

Alternative Ama Dablam Climbing Route

There are a total of eight alternative climbing routes to Ama Dablam's summit. However, guides who are leading climbers to the top mainly take the Southwest Ridge Route. The remaining routes are typically only used by experienced mountaineers.

However, there are several ways to reach Ama Dablam's top, including:

  • After the Southwest Ridge Route, the Lower Route was the second route to be successfully climbed in April 1979.
  • Since its first ascent in October 1979, the North Ridge Route has grown to be one of the primary alternatives to the Southwest Ridge Route.
  • The East Ridge route, which is more difficult, was only recently successfully ascended after 1983.
  • The 1985 first winter climb of Ama Dablam took place on the Northeast Route, which was the steepest.
  • On the west face, the Ariake-Sakashita Route
  • In 1996, Vanja Furlan and Toma Humar were the first to climb the Stane Belakrauf Memorial Route on the northwest face.
  • Northwestern Ridge Route. It has only ascended to the top once, in 2001.

Strategy for the Ama Dablam Expedition:

Strategy 1: Advanced Base Camp at 4750 meters to Camp I at 5700 meters

Amazing scenery can be seen from base camp, with a stream meandering through lush meadows, the Ama Dablam massif towering above, and Mount Taweche's valley opening up below. From this point, the path winds eastward through the gravel that is frequently frozen and grassy moraine ridges until it reaches a large plateau at 5150m, from where the Mingbo La pass may be seen. The trail heads north from the plateau and ascends rapidly to a sizable boulder field. Our Advanced Base Camp is located at 5300 meters, directly below the bolder field.

Slabs traverse deep cracks towards the end of the boulder field, and an ascent using fixed ropes is required to reach the appropriate ridge. Camp I, which has four or five tent platforms, may be reached at 5700m through an easy climb along the east side of the ridge.

Strategy 2: Camp I(5700 meters ) to Camp II( 5900 meters)

Following an exposed rocky slope dotted with soaring rock fingers, the route leaves Camp I. The ridge can be quite narrow at times, and there are many crevices to traverse on slabs.

Easy terrain is followed to the beginning of an east-face traverse that leads to Yellow Tower's base. Fixed ropes are needed to ascend a steep 15-meter pitch to Camp II, which is located at 5900 meters. The climb's hardest pitch is this one. There is a severe lack of tent space, and Camp II is rather exposed.

Strategy 3: Camp II (5900 meters) to Camp III (6300 meters)

The route is more "mixed" from Camp II onwards, with snow and iced-up rock. Between the Grey Tower and the lower rock wall, the trail crosses a gorge as it skirts a bulge of red rocks before descending to follow a snowy ridge. Before the trail reaches the well-known Mushroom Mountain 6300m, a sheltered area on the east side of the ridge, it must pass through a few steep snowy sections of this bottomless snowy valley.

Strategy 4: Ama Dablam on Summit Day

The altitude and snowy weather present the largest difficulties on Summit Day. To reach Ama Dablam's eastern side, the trail ascends above on snow and ice. The ascent heads straight up snow slopes to the visible ice top after crossing the hanging glacier, or Dablam, to a tiny snowfield. Ice fields ascend to a dangerously exposed spot where they meet a snow rib that slopes between 40 and 60 degrees, then the spectacular summit. From the summit, you may get spectacular views of Everest, Nuptse, Baruntse, Pumori, Lhotse Shar, Makalu, and Cho Oyu.

    When you arrive at Kathmandu Tribhuvan International Airport, the staff of Neal Trek Adventure will greet you warmly. He will transfer you to your chosen hotels and keep you updated about the Ama Dablam Expedition. After the briefing, you are free to enjoy the evening however you like and spend the night at the hotel.

      Today we will be doing some pre-briefing, and paperwork before sightseeing. So, after breakfast,  we have a pre-trip meeting at your hotel in Kathmandu and introduce your trek guide. During this meeting, you can clear all your doubts related to the trek. We will also give you a cap and our journey luggage bag. Please bring your passport, three copies of passport-size pictures, and a legible copy of your travel insurance policy to the meeting. Please pay any outstanding balance at this meeting and sign the legally binding trip form and the non-liability declaration.

      We start our day of sightseeing right after the meeting. A private vehicle and a professional tour guide are provided. During our visit to Boudhanath Stupa, one of Asia's largest Buddhist shrines, we get to see Buddhist monks praying in the monasteries which surround the stupa. Following Boudhnath Stupa, we go on to Pashupatinath, the most well-known Hindu temple in the nation, which is situated along the banks of the famous Bagmati River. Here, we witness sadhus meditating, pilgrims bathing, and periodic cremation pyres burning on the ghats.

      Then we proceed to Bhaktapur Durbar Square, a collection of the pagoda- and shikhara-style temples centered around a brick and wood palace with fifty-five windows. The main attractions of Bhaktapur Durbar Square are The Lion Gate, the Golden Gate, the Palace with Fifty-Five Windows, the Art Galleries, and the Statue of King Bhupatindra Malla. Our remaining time in Kathmandu is free for additional exploration and last-minute shopping in the Thamel district close to your hotel. Stay overnight at Hotel.

        Our guide will pick you up from the hotel in the early morning hours and drive you to the domestic terminal of Kathmandu airport. Then you catch the plane for Lukla from Kathmandu. You get to take in breathtaking Himalayan views for the entire 40 minutes. When you arrive at Tenzing-Hilary Airport, your porter is waiting for you. He will transport your bags. You then begin your trek. You're on a three-hour hike today which is easy and simple The trail begins with passing by a Kani (ceremonial gatehouse). It runs level above the Kyangma settlement, which includes a large gompa (monastery) and school, before descending steeply. 

        Then you arrive in Cheplung village. As it descends, the trail passes through a community forest and offers views of the Dudh Koshi River. After crossing the suspension bridge, there is a short ascent around the ridge to reach Ghat. A school and complex of mani walls, Chortens, and prayer wheels are seen on the trail as it leaves Ghat. The route then ascends to reach Chhuthawa, a small settlement. You will reach Phakding after a short hike from Chhuthawa. And stay overnight at lodges or teahouses.

          After a lovely morning, the walk continues across bridges over the Dudh Kosi River, passing through a variety of fascinating villages, including Toc-Toc, Bhenkar, and Monjo, until arriving at the Sagarmatha National Park entrance gate. Today you will be trekking for around 6 hours. From here, walk along the riverbed for a few hours before climbing steeply uphill to Namche Bazaar, where there are good restaurants, bars, cybercafés, post offices, and banks. On the remaining days, you can enjoy the surroundings and rest for the day at lodges.
           

            Today is the 1st day of a rest day from the two days scheduled for "acclimatization". During your rest day either we trek to Thame for the day, go to Khunde, or just rest and stroll through Namche Bazaar. It's advised to stay active and stroll around than spend the day doing nothing. Namche Bazaar, which houses government buildings, ATMs, Internet cafés, shops, restaurants, a bakery, and a lively market every Friday and Saturday, serves as the hub of the Everest (Khumbu) region. So to utilize our rest day you can explore the Namche bazaar or hike a few hundred vertical feet during the day. 

            Your guides will also take you to the Sagarmatha National Park's Tourist Visitor Center, where we may see a variety of items. Our guides lead us to the Tourist Visitor Center, which is close to the Sagarmatha National Park's headquarters, where we can see a variety of artifacts related to the first Everest climbers, learn about Sherpa culture, and explore the various plant and animal species that can be found in the Everest region. In the evening have dinner and stay overnight at the lodges.

              Today the trek continues alongside the Dudh Kosi's raging glacier rivers while offering breathtaking alpine views. By the time we get to Tengboche, we will have hiked up to an elevation of 3,860 m. After reaching here, we will visit Tengboche monastery where you will witness a 20-foot-tall sculpture of Buddha, absolutely stunning wall hangings, as well as the Lamas' musical instruments and robes. Depending the today’s trekking, the group will be brought to observe a prayer ceremony either in the morning or the evening. You are free for the rest of the day to spend the day however you like. Overnight stay at lodges or teahouses.

                After morning routines and breakfast we start our day which is around two hours trek. Today's hike to Upper Pangboche at 4000 meters is straightforward and requires only a 140-meter ascent from Tengboche. Sometimes, the quick ascent is used instead of staying an additional night in Tengboche for acclimatization. The hike begins by descending to Deboche and then ascends through dense forest with few sights. After crossing the bridge, the trail follows a cliff face with numerous views, including those of Ama Dablam to the south. From this point on, the trail continues with a few short, steep parts. After passing through Lower Pangboche, we ascended to Upper Pangboche, where we were treated to stunning views of the surrounding peaks. Stay overnight at lodges or teahouses.

                  Today after breakfast we will get ready for the Ama Dablam base cam which will take around 5 to 6 hours. We hike back down the trail to the Dudh Kosi Bridge at Pangboche and cross it before climbing up the opposite bank and continuing up the trail and ridgeline to the base camp. The majority of the route can be seen from the base camp, which is situated in a beautiful area. It offers a peaceful break from the ascent's difficulties at a height of about 4600m. Only our guides and kitchen workers are left when our porters drop off their loads and depart for the next three weeks. Spend the night in a tent camp.

                    Today is another day for acclimatization. On this day, you will start by climbing to the Yak Camp to adjust to the altitude. You must do a little ascent in order for your body to get used to the increasing altitude. The first stage will follow a ridge of a moraine with breathtaking views of the Himalayas.

                    After that, you merge with the ridge in the southwest. Some of the necessary heavy equipment will be left behind by the guides. After that, return to base camp where you can warm up with a meal. Tented camp accommodation for the night in Base Camp.

                      A daily schedule for the climbing period is not provided because the expedition leader and participants will decide what to accomplish each day. Based on climbers' needs and their own experience, guides will use a flexible approach.

                      Before ascending above base camp, the team usually spends a few days there organizing food, improving their rope abilities, and acclimatizing. As part of any acclimatization plan, it is typical to "tag," or spend at least one night in Camp 1 (5700m), before going back to base camp, resting, and getting ready for a summit attempt.

                      Following an ancient grassy moraine ridge roughly eastward from the base camp, we can view the Mingbo La from a vast saddle at 5150 meters. We comfortably climb northward from the saddle until the ground slopes down at the beginning of a massive boulder field. At a height of 5400 meters below the boulder field, we might set up an advanced base camp. 

                      The path continues north, following the boulder field's base, before ascending via cairns to the southwest ridge's toe. Slabs are crossed towards the end of the boulder field, and then a short gully is ascended, providing access to the ridge itself in a rather exposed location. Quick access to Camp 1 is accessible by simple scrambling on the ridge's eastern side.

                      There are four to five platforms for tents. We contour around the snowy basin from Camp 1 (or a potential alternate location for Camp 1) until we are beneath two rock fingers. Following the east side of the ridge, one climbs up simply mixed terrain until reaching a short pitch of "difficult" standard that leads to the ridge directly.

                      The ridge is narrow in spots and has challenging bends on the east side until the second pressure traverse leads to two pitches that meet the "extremely severe" standard. The path continues along the ridge's crest for a little way before forcing us to go on the west side of the ridge with an uncomfortable step.

                      One of the hardest pitches on the climb at the HVS (5.8) level is this 15-meter pitch that is just below Camp 2. Now, Camp 2 is reached by a small ridge (5900m). Camp 2 is highly exposed and has a very small amount of tent space (three or four tent platforms).

                      When expeditions decide to travel from Camp 1 to Camp 3 all at once, it is occasionally just utilized as a place to dump equipment. Following the snow ridge directly to a challenging east traverse, the climb leaves Camp 2 by circling a red rock bluff on the east. This leads to a gully between the lower rock buttress and the Grey Tower.

                      We ascend the gully until we get to an extremely exposed traverse path on the west side of the ridge. We climb a short snow slope to get to the beginning of Mushroom Ridge. The next step usually entails navigating some challenging snow portions until Camp 3 (6300m) is reached. In order to reach Dablam's right flank, the route ascends the snow and ice slope just above Camp 3.

                      We proceed to skirt Dablam on the right as we move west to obtain access to a small snowfield that is located beneath the Bergschrund. After crossing the Bergschrund, the ascent continues straight up to the ice summit above. An impressive ascent to the peak follows this. night at a tent (Each camp will provide high-quality camping tents).

                        We begin the six-hour descent to Namche Bazaar (3441m). If we're lucky, we'll get to Namche just in time for the market. Whatever the case, there is always great food to be had, such as rich cappuccino, tender yak steaks, and chocolate cake with frosting! The highland Sherpa and Tibetan people, who have traveled over high passes from a great distance away, meet the lowland porters carrying supplies at this market to trade food and goods for their homes and villages. Enjoy and honor your journey. Sleep at the guesthouse. 

                          We trek for six hours before arriving back at Lukla (3404m), where the journey started. We'll take some time to appreciate the journey as a whole, as well as the individual accomplishments of everyone who participated. There will be plenty of time for you to stroll around the city. Sleep at the guesthouse. 

                            After a lengthy mountain climb, we board an early morning flight to Kathmandu. When we get to Kathmandu, we can rest or explore for souvenirs. Today is our opportunity to tour any further parts of Kathmandu. Our tour guides can assist you with sightseeing as well as shopping for mementos. In the evening, a farewell supper will be held to honor the guests. Stay overnight at Hotel.

                              It's the last day of your Nepalese adventure today! There is nothing to do but organize your images and exchange emails with your traveling mates. Three hours prior to your flight, an NTA representative will transport you to the airport. You'll have plenty of time on the trip home to plan your next adventure in the beautiful country of Nepal.

                              Ama Dablam Expedition Best Season

                              The two best climbing seasons to climb Ama Dablam are Spring and Autumn.

                              Spring (Mid-April to May) - Because the Everest expedition is the main priority for the major expedition companies, there are very few climbers during the spring climbing season. Spring is the best time to climb if you want to see fewer teams and climbers on the route.

                              Autumn (September to November) – Autumn is a popular climbing season. Between the middle of October and the end of November, many teams will be climbing.

                              Note: Ama Dablam is the third-most-popular technical climbing mountain in the Khumbu area, with the majority of permits being issued in the autumn.

                              Experience for Ama Dablam Expedition

                              All climbers must be technically skilled and have good rock and ice climbing abilities. Although there will be fixed rope on the majority of the routes, climbers should be capable of ascending steep rock and hard, compact ice. We ascend using the standard South West ridge route (normal route), which is considered to be the safest approach and free from real dangers like avalanches and other hazards. The journey starts at Lukla (2850 meters), and the first few days take you through the legendary Sherpa region as you ascend the breathtaking high valley of the Khumbu. The majority of the route for the actual ascending is fixed and concentrated on the crest of a ridge; there are no icefalls or glaciers to traverse. Although exposed, the ascent is generally safe, but it is not a mountain for beginners.

                              Preparation for Ama Dablam Expedition

                              It is very difficult to replicate vertical climbing in training like the famous "Yellow Tower," which you must conquer before ascending camp 2. We strongly advise concentrating on strength, core, and endurance exercises. Any aerobic exercise is advised, including long-distance jogging (10–20 km) three to four times per week, cycling for an hour to two hours, and trekking uphill while wearing 15-20 kg of weight. You can do the above-mentioned exercise or according to your desire but should have proper physical fitness for the expedition. You should plan your training at least 5–6 months before your climbing trip.

                              Food and water during Ama Dablam Expedition

                              We advise all of our clients to drink 4-6 liters of water each day. Keeping yourself hydrated will aid in appropriate acclimatization. It is best to bring filtration bottles or hydration tablets with you.

                              The majority of the meals are made in the tea houses, and on your climbing days, our Sherpa teams will set up kitchen tents. You don't have to be worried about eating, but just make sure to eat enough. Despite the bitter cold, your body will naturally attempt to reject food or avoid wasting energy on anything, including eating, when you're at a high altitude. The initial few bites can need some willpower on your part, but soon your body will start to accept the meal. In case a client decides they do not want to eat what is being cooked in the tents, we also offer packed dried meals.

                              Remember to resist drinking and smoking. You might notice that our tour guides are smoking or drinking, but keep in mind that they are experts who have adapted to these settings much better than climbers who visit the area only for adventure breaks.

                              Permits for Ama Dablam Expedition

                              To climb Ama Dablam, you need a climbing permit. To enter the Sagarmatha National Park, you must additionally get an area permit or a permit. Getting them is not difficult. No need to worry; your trekking company will get them for you. There will be checkpoints, and you'll need to show identification to get through them. Some of the permits are:

                              • Trekking Permit (Sagarmatha National Park entry fee)
                              • TIMS card (Trekking Information Management System).
                              • Charges for Icefall by SPCC (Sagarmatha Pollution Control Committee)

                              Ama Dablam Climbing Difficulty

                              Ama Dablam's expedition is one of the more challenging climbs at 6812 meters above sea level in Nepal's Everest region. In addition, without prior training and planning, the climb may be a little more difficult for beginners and intermediate hikers. The steep and slick paths, the significant amounts of snow and rain, altitude sickness, and mostly the weather conditions all make the climb more difficult. Additionally, many climbers find the travel to the Himalayan region of Nepal at a height of more than 5000m to be unusual and difficult.

                              Ama Dablam's expedition requires a significant amount of effort and dedication. The mountaineers must put in extra effort and maintain a high level of physical fitness, endurance, and spirit. The Ama Dablam expedition is faced with a number of difficulties. Altitude sickness is a serious issue that can result from elevation. In addition, the long walking hours tire you out. The path is rocky and uneven, making it challenging to walk, and you have to ascend and descend it. You must therefore overcome significant obstacles, yet the voyage will be worthwhile despite the difficulties.

                              Factors that make the Ama Dablam expedition difficult.

                              Following are some factors that significantly increase the difficulty of the Ama Dablam expedition.

                              High Altitude

                              When climbing Ama Dablam, altitude and elevation might become a significant challenge. Even if it may be an altitude-friendly trek in comparison to another climb above 8000m, the difficulties one must overcome are the same. The Ama Dablam expedition may be seen from its 6812m elevation. Contrarily, you need to utilize specialized tools such as an ice ax, ropes, crampons, ice screws, and Jumars. Here, the height becomes one of the biggest obstacles.

                              Climate and Temperature

                              The extreme cold and wind of Ama Dablam Difficulty are additional major challenges. Ama Dablam's weather is constantly changing and never stays the same. Trekkers may experience a more serious problem with adaptation than in any other mountains of comparable height. Trekking late can be difficult due to the unpredictability of the weather. Additionally, the temperature dropped below freezing during the winter nights, which is extremely cold for a night's stay.

                              Mountain sickness or Altitude Sickness

                              Experiencing extreme altitude sickness can be fatal. When climbing to Ama Dablam, altitude sickness becomes a major issue due to the low oxygen levels in the high Himalayas. Since altitude sickness can begin anywhere at a height of 2500 meters. Headaches, respiratory issues, nausea, vomiting, fainting, etc. are possible symptoms. Therefore, if any of these issues arise, the traveler should address them right away and take a break. This could endanger your life if it is not treated. For more details, click link.

                              Falls and avalanches

                              The Ama Dablam frequently experiences avalanches and falls. Avalanches are falling slabs of snow, rock, or ice. The climbers must put an end to their expedition and descend once an avalanche occurs. With so much snow falling, falls are often quite regular in the Ama Dablam. Falls are responsible for the majority of the expedition's fatalities. Climbing the upper ridges in higher camps is extremely risky.

                                  Ama Dablam Expedition

                                  I am very happy to recommend NTA - their guide knows pretty much every stone on Amadablam and looks after their clients and crew really well. I particularly liked the way that the NTA team gives the group a lot of autonomy to go at their own pace and has a deep connection with the local people of Khumbu. I am happy to get to know about their lifestyle, customs, and traditions. All thanks go to the Nepal Trek Adventures and their teams for a successful Amadablam Expedition.
