Ama Dablam Expedition

About Trip

Ama Dablam Expedition is exhilarating that it has got pointed summit. This is one of the most beautiful peaks of the Everest region, which is visible from the Everest base camp trekking route. The height of Ama Dablam peak is 6812 meters, but it is a technical mountain for climbing. Mountaineers climb through the south west ridge, crossing challenging crevasses and rocky slope. Proper physical fitness and acclimatization are essentials before setting out to climb Mt. Ama Dablam.

Truly said, no other mountain in the world captures alpine climbers' imaginations like Amdablam (6,866 meter) does. Standing high and aloof alone in the Everest region towering over the famous Sherpa villages of Thyangboche and Pangboche, it allows successful attempt on its summit only to the dedicated climbers, who have built skills and experience in much more than simply high altitude walking and who are comfortable climbing technical terrain with a pack on, taking care of themselves in very high alpine camps, and spending days at a time in exposed terrain.

Landing at the Lukla airport, you begin the trek through the Dudh Koshi valley. Walking through the Sagarmatha National park, you reach to Namche Bazaar, Khumjung and walk to Tengbuche. Exploring the world renowned monastery, you walk to Dingbuche and approach Ama Dablam base camp via Chhukung. For the climbing practice and acclimatization, you may climb the Island peak. Three high camps are set for the successful Ama Dablam climbing. The route from base camp to  Camp I is rocky and tough.  But the fixed lines make it quite easy. The further climbing of Ama Dablam offers a great challenge with steep rocky trail. The route is now filled with snow and reach to camp III. It is a direct climb to the summit from Camp III. From the top, the views of Mt. Everest (8848m), Lhotse, Lhotse Shar, Makalu, Island peak and the surrounding peaks of the Khumbu region. Climbing down to the base camp, you trek down all the way to Lukla and fly back to Kathmandu.

Adventure Club Trek offers Ama Dablam expedition with the experienced mountaineering guides, excellent camping team and using branded climbing equipments. Spring and Autumn are the best climbing seasons in Everest region. Please, contact us for more details.

Trip Note

Flight Delays …A possibility to keep In Mind When Planning

For treks that start in Lukla, we normally book flights between Kathmandu (KTM) and Lukla (LUK) on Twin Otter planes. While flight service between the two airports is fairly reliable, at times the flight schedule can be disturbed and flights cancelled because of weather or mechanical problems.  If this happens after your trek and you would miss your international flight out of Kathmandu, Adventure Club Trek can charter a helicopter on your behalf and at your expense, so that you do not miss your international flight. 

We accept US cash, travelers' checks, and credit cards (Visa and Master Card only). Upon payment to our Kathmandu office we will provide you with a receipt, which you can use to receive reimbursement if you have a travel insurance policy.  Depending upon the number of passengers, a helicopter flight will cost at least US$500, and up to US$3,500.

NOTE: Your safety is of the utmost concern whilst you are travelling with Adventure Club Trek. We will make every effort possible to follow the original itinerary but we reserve the right to change that itinerary if a segment of it becomes a safety issue. Certain mountain regions are remote, natural disasters can happen, weather conditions can decline and there can be illness or an injury. To avoid dangerous situations we may occasionally have to make changes to the itinerary to ensure everyone’s safety. That having been said, Adventure Club Trek will strive to provide you with the best possible trekking experience and to keep your safety our number one priority. In case, the flight delay/cancellation happens at the start of trip and it goes so long that it disturbs your onward travel schedule, you are free to choose an alternative trip

Pre-Trip Meeting 

Prior to all the treks and expeditions, Adventure Club Trek hosts a pre-trip meeting in Kathmandu. The primary purpose of meeting is to provide an opportunity for individuals to ask questions about the forthcoming trek and to introduce other team members. The meeting covers topics as diverse as personal equipment and acclimatization and usually involves a hike and some skills training. Pre-trip meeting is very important in order to have a better preparation of the trekking.
