Ama Dablam Overview

Ama Dablam means ‘Mother’s Necklace’ in Sherpa language. When we see from a distance, the mountain looks like a mother protecting her child. The view from Thyanboche is worth a million dollars.

Popularly known as the ‘Matterhorn of the Himalaya’ the overwhelming, ice-coated granite pyramid of Ama Dablam (6,856m/22,494ft) dominates the sky above the trekker’s trail to the Everest Base Camp. This 30-day Expedition begins in Kathmandu with sightseeing of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Next, we fly to Lukla and begin trekking. We trek in the beautiful Everest trail before beginning our summit of Ama Dablam.

ama dablam expedition mapThe standard ascent to Ama Dablam Expedition is made via the South-Western Ridge, the same route followed by Ward (UK), Bishop (USA) and Gill (NZ) in the first ascent of the mountain in 1961. The route offers a varied and sustained climb with a reasonable level of difficulty. Three high camps are set up at strategic points.

The climb is moderate up to Camp 1, then it gets challenging up along the narrow granite ridge. Negotiating pitches of steep ice and snow slopes, the route gets more technical from Camp 2. From Camp 3, skirt around the hanging glacier or the Dablam, cross snow arête (a sharp ridge) and bergschrund (a gap or crevasse at the edge) between ice cliffs and scale the summit. After scaling the summit, we return back to base camp. Island Peak Climbing is the best climbing destination in the Everest Region being sold by Everest Thrill.

If you’re comfortable with experiencing the once in a lifetime moment when you could conquer the world by conquering the world’s tallest peak Mount Everest. Best of luck!

It is very easy to book the trip with us. At first, we need your Passport photocopy to book everything here for you. And once we got 20% of the total cost in advance through bank or Money transfer then we will confirm your trip with us.

You can get all kind of food. You have different choices but personally, I would like to say to eat that local food or our designated food because it prevents you from high altitude sickness.

Category: All Trek

It is hard to say that you will have altitude sickness or not because everyone’s body reacts to the altitude differently. In general, most of the trekkers have suffered from normal altitude problem during trek but if anyone highly suppers from altitude problem we manage Helicopter rescue. So be sure before starts trek that your insurance cover Helicopter rescue as well. Otherwise, you have to pay extra for a Helicopter rescue.

Yes! The Lukla airport is one of the dangerous airports in the world. The runway is tiny and built on a slope with a mountain at one end and a huge drop into a valley at the other..,

Category: All Trek

Yes! You can buy a SIM card (Ncell) in Kathmandu before starts trek but the 3G only really works the first and last couples of days of the trek. But you know you could buy wi-fi cards at tea houses which cost 3-6$ for 200mb and the signal is medium.

Category: All Trek

Normally we operate this trek around a year but Sept-Nov and Feb-May is a suggested time for trek.

Category: All Trek

Right from the pickup to the trek end, each and every day was catered in a very professional way. 24/7 support was provided and I have only one word for them…. Phenomenal. I being a professional traveler can vouch for them.

Let the stars talk!
If I could rate 10 stars, I would rate eleven!
The expedition to Ama Dablam was an amazing experience of my lifetime! Amir and Sumir are the two most patient and friendly guides we have met during our whole trip to Nepal! When we felt weak, they always supported us with word or a song. They truly represent Nepalese hospitality and friendliness and of course they provide professional service as well.
Words are not enough to say how much I will remember this trip to Nepal! Thank you Mount Face Nepal and Everest Thrill, thank you Amir Adhykary, thank you Sumir Gyawali, thank you Kisan Adhykary.

I had a wonderful trip to Ama Dablam with Pemba (my guide). I was travelling alone, in a group with three other British. We all really enjoyed Pemba’s Professionalism throughout the adventurous expedition. Everest Thrill is highly recommend!
