Ama Dablam Expedition is one of the most sought after expeditions in Nepal for this has the entire trait that makes venture exhilarating. Technically it has ice, rock, fixed ropeways, killer views, fascinating highlands, and great base camp in a meadow with a stream which makes this venture worthwhile. The stunning pyramid of Ama Dablam; Situated in the heart of Everest’s Khumbu region along with the Matterhorn and Khan Tengri, is regarded as one of the world’s most beautiful peaks. High on her Southwest face hangs a glacier resembling a ‘Dablam’ - the sacred ornament box worn by ladies in the Sherpa community. It was this spectacular feature that got her the name “Ama Dablam”.

Mountaineers usually have to pitch 3 high camps on the mountain of mount Ama Dablam 6812m. To reach the first camp from base camp, the climbers have to pass the toughest and the difficult passing through the difficult saddle ridges; and then should turn to the north climbing up through the rocky ground and through the boulder.
