Ama Dablam Expedition (6812m) - 26 Days

Mt. Ama Dablam (6812m) is a beautiful mountain, located almost due south of Mt. Everest and Mt. Lhotse in the Khumbu region. It is a steep pyramid of ice with vertical walls and sharp, exposed ridges. Mount 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. Our ascent will be made via the SW ridge route, a technical route with three camps above base camp.
