ama dablam expedition

Submit Review
To the south of Mount Everest lies the pyramid-like Mount Ama Dablam. As erect and unmoved as it is, its snowcapped apex passes as one of the most elegant peaks of Nepal. The name “Ama Dablam” emerges from its resemblance to “Dablam,” a sacred ornament box used by local Sherpa women. Mt Ama Dablam is hardly known for its height, which measures roughly at 6,856m (22,494ft). But Ama Dablam’s height doesn’t entirely define the mountain’s glory. The abundance of glaciers, narrow ridges, and rocky mean that the Ama Dablam expedition is not one for the faint-hearted. The Ama Dablam trek offers every astonishing delight in the book. Moreover, its soaring shape and sharp approaches make it an ultimate trekking experience for mountaineers. In 1961, a team of four mountaineers Barry Bishop, Mike Gill, Wally Romanes, and Mike Ward became the first group to climb the Mt. Ama Dablam peak. The mountain has since then entertained hundreds of expeditions over five decades. Mt Ama Dablam has more to offer than any voyage of varying difficulties and itineraries. The challenge this Ama Dablam trek provides is one of a kind, and enough to leave you mesmerized.
