Ama Dablam is one of the most stunning, technically challenging and a dream mountain for any climbers. Ama Dablam lies 6812 m high in Khumbu Himalayan range. Ama means mother and Dablam means pearl necklace. The hanging glacier (Dablam) is considered as part of the main peak, which makes the name Ama Dablam (mother and the pearl necklace).
Ama Dablam was first climbed in 1961 by Mike Gill, Barry Bishop, Mike Ward, and Wally Romanes. It is our great pleasure that we have organized Ama Dablam and Everest expeditions for Brent Bishop (son of Barry Bishop).
We organize Ama Dablam expedition on the normal South West Ridge. We usually set up 2 to 3 camps above base camp. Ama Dablam climb gives one a very good technical and cultural experience in the Khumbu Valley. The expedition team starts trek from Lukla all the way to Kalapathar (5435m) and climb Lobuche Peak (6119m) for acclimatization. This acclimation trek and climb will help the climbers do the summit attempt on Ama Dablam in a short time.
