Mt. Ama Dablam Expedition
Seemingly looking like a mother holding a baby with a necklace like a glacier, Ama Dablam has been named for the same. Meaning mother’s necklace in local language, this peak is considered to be one of the most beautiful mountains in the Himalayas. Ama Dablam Peak climbing takes you 6,812 meters high. Ama Dablam dominates the eastern sky for anyone trekking to Mount Everest base camp. Almost every attempt is done from the SW ridge to the summit like the first one which was done in 1961 by 4 climbers two from New Zealand and 1 each from USA and UK. Although this is a small peak compared to its towering neighbors, sometimes even the veterans of Everest expedition cannot seem to wrap their heads around the technicality behind scaling this beauty.
The trip starts after a flight to Lukla from where you trek about 5 days to the base camp of Ama Dablam. The most popular route by far is the Southwest Ridge. Climbers typically set up three camps along the ridge with camp 3 just below and to the right of the hanging glacier, the Dablam. A special permit for climbing and a government appointed liaison officer are the prerequisites for Ama Dablam expedition. Similar to Everest, season of spring is found to be the best time for an expedition to Ama Dablam but October also provides ideal conditions to scale this peak. Besides the climbing experience, the trek that leads to Ama Dablam is one of the best in the world as it takes you very close to Everest and other giants while from top you can see the 3 of the highest mountains in the world including Mount Everest.
