In the heart of the Sherpa Land the local community is considered the most sacred ornament box is worn by ladies, which is symbolic representation of the Mt. Ama Dablam. It is a steep pyramid of ice with vertical walls and sharp, exposed ridges. Ama Dablam forms a lasting impression on many trekkers in Nepal, as it is perhaps the most stunning mountain along the popular trekking route to Everest Base Camp. The trekking route start from Lukla (2840m) and pass through the legendary Sherpa land up the spectacular high valley of the Khumbu. Ama Dablam is lying alongside Everest in the heart of the Khumbu valley offering a superb climb up a spectacular ridge.

 

Experience Required: All climbers who intend to climb Ama Dablam need to have good skills on rock and ice climbing also technically competent. On most parts of the routes there will be fixed rope, however, the climbers should posses skills of climbing through steep rock and hard compact ice. We follow the standard South West ridge route (normal route) to the top, as it is consider the safe route, free from the objective danger such as avalanche and so on. The route we follow begins at Lukla (2850m.) and the initial days of the trekking pass through the legendary Sherpa country up the spectacular high valley of the Khumbu. Most of the route on the actual climbing is fixed with no icefall or glacier to negotiate, and most of it is concentrated on the crest of a ridge.

 

Base Camp to Camp 1. To reach the first camp from base camp, The climbers have to pass the toughest and the difficult passing through the difficult saddle ridges; and then should turn to the north climbing up through the rocky ground and through the boulder.

 

Camp 1 to Camp 2. From Camp I - one has to cross the rocky bowl and should climb the ridge via to the fixed lines to Camp II.  From Camp II after crossing over severe rocks and ridge which lead you to a camp 2.

 

Camp 2 to Camp 3. The climbing route from Camp II is mostly with the steep mixed alley ways of rock & ice and snow. The route leads to the slope climb to snow ground and then passes through steep snow and ice tunnel then finally along the snow ridge go to Camp III.

 

Ama Dablam Summit.  From here to the summit is steep climb on snow and ice to the right of a huge hanging glacier. From the Top of Mt. Ama Dablam a very charming sceneries of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Island peak, Makalu Khumbu Himal and rest of the snowcapped surrounded mountains can be envisioned.

 

Climbing History of Mt. Cho Oyo: Ama Dablam epitomizes all that is grand about the mountains. Such impressive beauty has made Ama Dablam a highly coveted prize for climbers. Since its first ascent in 1961 by an Anglo-American-New Zealand team, it has been climbed frequently and by many different routes.
