Ama Dablam Expedition 6,812m

30 Days

Ama Dablam Expedition 6,812m

  • 30-day Ama Dablam Expedition, along with the Everest Base Camp

Ama Dablam, also known as Mountaineer Mountain, is one of the technical mountains in the Khumbu region of the Himalayas, which is 6812 meters high. A hidden glacier from the southwestern face gives the impression of a jewel hanging in the mountain’s neck that gave it the name Ama Dablam (meaning mother’s jewel), a steep ice pyramid with steep walls and sharp, exposed rocks. Experience technical climbing on this sharply pointed mountain. Ama Dablam peak allows panoramic views of the eight thousand including Everest, Cho Oyu, Makalu and Lhotse.

Trek to Everest Base Camp and Kalapathar are included to reduce the circuit of high camps in Ama Dablam. ie’ instead of doing a lot of wandering around the upper camps of Ama Dablam, we will trek to Kalapathar, the Everest base camp, before heading down to Ama Dablam. And we will plan to follow it in our upcoming Ama Dablam campaigns. Doing this allows the Ama Dablam climber to acclimatize well, and be fully prepared upon arrival at the Ama Dablam base camp.

Ama Dablam Base Camp is a well-appointed camp for every mountaineer to have a comfortable stay. Then we will spend a few days at Ama Dablam base camp for rest, preparation, training and puja ceremony. Similarly, above the base camp, there are three more camps before reaching the summit. Camp 1 will be at (5,600m), Camp 2 will be at (5,900m) and Camp 3 will be at (6,300m).

During the summit push, we leave from base camp to camp 1, camp 1 to camp 2 and from camp 2 we leave for the summit at early dawn.

  • Respectively:
    Day 1 – Climb to Camp 1 (5,600m/18,368ft) and stay
    Day 2 – Climb to Camp 2 (5,900m/19,352ft) and stay
    Day 3 – Summit push (6,812m/20,283ft) and return to Camp 2
    Day 4 – Return to base camp

Note: Please note that the above summit plan may differ during the expedition period as each climber adapts differently to an altitude.
