ItineraryThe expedition takes 28 days, including a climb of Lobuche Peak.
Day 1 is your arrival in Kathmandu, and after our expedition preparations we fly to Lukla. We trek to Lobuche via Namche Bazar, Pangboche, Dingboche and Kalapattar. We make a high camp on Lobuche Peak on day 12, and summit the following day. We trek back to Pangboche and onto Ama Dablam. The climbing period on Ama Dablam starts on day 16. We then trek back to Lukla and fly to Kathmandu, returning by day 28.PLEASE NOTE: Please note that it will be necessary to have a flexible plan in order to take the best advantage of situations as they present themselves. Any changes to the itinerary will be made with a view to maximizing the benefit to the team members and of ensuring their eventual success on the trip.
Ama Dablam (6,856m) is regarded as one of the world’s most beautiful and sought-after peaks, along side the Matterhorn and Khan Tengri. The experienced mountaineer will find the South East Ridge, which is the easiest route on the mountain, a good challenge.
The ascent to Camp One at 5800m is quite straight forward, from which point the climb gradually steepens as we move onto the rocky Southwest Ridge. The final approach to the summit is on snow slopes up to 45 degrees. We have had good summit success on all our previous expeditions.
Is this trip suitable for you?
Ama Dablam is a serious climb requiring extensive use of ropes and equipment. If your climbing experience is limited or your skills are in need of a tune-up, we prefer you to join us beforehand for our Himalayan Three Peaks trip. This would allow you to pre-acclimatise and ensure a thorough brush-up on skills for your ascent.
Himalaya Guides Trekking & Mountain Adventures is a professionally led “non-guided” expedition for experienced mountaineers who want to work as part of a team to tackle the mountain. We say “non-guided” because, compared to guiding operations on alpine-scale peaks such as the European Alps, our leader and climbing Sherpa team working with you will not be able to protect your every move. You must therefore have broad mountaineering experience so that you are capable and willing to move between camps unassisted. You will have good support on the mountain from our climbing leader and the team.
