Ama Dablam has one of the most recognizable profiles in the Himalaya. It’s unique, faceted peak is home to a glacier resembling a ‘dablam’ – the sacred ornament box worn by ladies in the Sherpa community. This feature gives the mountain its name “Ama Dablam”. Near the towering Mt Everest, in the heart of the Khumbu Valley, Ama Dablam offers a superb climb up a fantastic ridge. The route we follow begins at Lukla (2,850m) for acclimation through the legendary high villages of Sherpa country, and into the impressive high valley of the Khumbu.
