Ama Dablam Expedition

Ama Dablam (6814m) 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.

The itinerary

The 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.

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, 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.
