Ama Dablam Expedition

Ama Dablam Expedition

Located south of Mt. Lhotse and Mt. Everest, Ama Dablam’s angular peak is a perennial lure to mountaineers in the Khumbu region. The 6812 meter peak is known for its knife-edged ridges and steep walls. Beginning with a flight to Lukla, we will trek through Namche Bazaar and Tengboche to Ama Dablam base camp at 4500 meters. We will traverse the southwest ridge, erecting three camps along our climb. The final leg will take us across snow covered slopes and a steep, exposed ridge to the summit.
