Ama Dablam Expedition
Ama Dablam means Mother’s necklace in the local language. The name comes from the unique shape where it seems a mother is holding her baby with a necklace like glacier. This Ama Dablam Expedition is considered to be one of the most beautiful mountains in the Himalayas. Amadablam 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 Newzealand and 1 each from USA and UK. Although this is a small peak compared to its towering neighbors sometimes even the Everest veterans have problems with the technical difficulties encountered while scaling Amadablam.
The most popular route for climbing Ama Dablam is the Southwest Ridge. The climb is typically done with three camps along the ridge.Camp 3 is usually established just below and to the right of the hanging glacier, the Dablam, so that any ice that calves off the glacier typically moves away from the camp. Nevertheless, a certain risk of serac falls cannot be avoided. As with other mountains in the region, the best climbing months are April-May before the monsoon season and September-October, after the monsoon.
