Ama Dablam

Technical climbing on the world’s most beautiful peak

Ama Dablam is one of the most spec­tac­u­lar moun­tains in the world and a true alpinist’s dream. This unfor­get­table climb in the Khum­bu region of Nepal involves a cul­tur­al trek into base camp, tech­ni­cal rock, snow and ice climb­ing and stun­ning panoram­ic sum­mit views of Ever­est, Lhotse, and Makalu. We climb Lobuche Peak to accli­ma­tize before going to Ama Dablam. We place two to three camps along the beau­ti­ful South­west Ridge where we have dra­mat­ic and exposed views of the Himalayas.

For this trip you will need to arrive in Kath­man­du, Nepal on Day 3 of the itin­er­ary. You will cross the date line in mid-flight to Asia, thus los­ing a day. If you are trav­el­ing from out­side the US. your itin­er­ary may require less time to reach Kath­man­du, so all that is required is that you arrive on Day 3 of the itin­er­ary, where Moun­tain Mad­ness ser­vices begin. If you arrive ear­ly, we can assist with extra hotel arrange­ments and activ­i­ties. Oth­er­wise, you can arrive at any time on Day 3.

Climbers should be comfortable climbing on exposed ridges, 45 to 60 degree snow/ice slopes and/or 5.6+ rock and have a well-rounded past history of climbing experience. Depending on the objective, climbers may need only snow/ice skills or only rock skills; and vice-versa. Some climbs may require both skill sets.
