- One of the shortest treks in the Everest area
- Visit ancient gompas and monasteries
- Learn about ancient cultures and practices
- Head towards the base of Ama Dablam
The Ama Dablam Base Camp Trek takes you to the base camp (4,420m/14,502ft) of a highly technical iconic mountain peak named ‘Ama Dablam’ that goes above 6000m, and all its delights from there. If you are looking to experience the Himalayas for a time that fits your executive timeline, then this Ama Dablam Base Camp Trek is perfect for you. ‘Ama Dablam’ means ‘mother and necklace’ – because the permanent glacier hanging like a ‘Dablam’ resembles a traditional piece of jewelery worn by Sherpa women. The Ama Dablam Base Camp Trek serves as a short Everest trek that does not exceed an altitude of (4,500m/14,760ft) and still gives you a feel of the mighty Everest and nearby mountains.
Our trail to Ama Dablam base camp leads to the bustling Khumbu capital village town of Namche Bazaar and Tengboche Monastery, the largest in the region and from both of these areas we get great views of the King Peak of Everest. However, bunking out in the Sherpa capital of Namche Bazaar, getting amazing views of Mt. and visiting the famous monastery of Tengboche, we also wander into remote areas that are too quiet to explore the lesser-known trails. And desirable compared to the more crowded trekking circuits in the Everest region. Another element of our trip will be a visit to the Sherpa villages of Khunde, Phortse and Khumjung where we will witness the generous projects undertaken by the late Sir Edmund Hillary through the Himalayan Trust for the development of the Sherpa community in Khumbu. And we also have the opportunity to interact with the local people which gives us a thought-provoking insight into their lifestyle and culture. Finally, after our journey through the beautiful natural wilderness of the Everest region, we return to Lukla. And on a daily basis, you can expect to be walking for about 4 – 6 hours. Involves occasional difficult days. Expect ups and downs as well for there will be hills to climb as well…
