Ama Dablam Peak Climbing
Ama Dablam (6856m) is regarded as one of the world’s most beautiful and sought-after peaks, along side the Matterhorn and Khan Tengri. The experienced mountaineer will find the South East Rigde, which is the easiest route on the mountain, a good challenge.
The ascent to Camp One at 5800m is quite straight forward, from which point the climb gradually steepens as we move onto the rocky South West Ridge. The final approach to the summit is on snow slopes up to 45 degrees. We have had good summit success on all our previous expeditions.

Please note that the above trekking times and distances are approximate.
Cloud and turbulent weather are regular phenomena along the Himalayan range. It is therefore possible that domestic flights from Kathmandu to/from Lukla may have to be delayed for a few hours or even cancelled for a day or more.
Fortunately this does not happen very often during the high seasons of March to May or September to November, but you need to plan for this possibility.
As a safeguard, we recommend that you add on a couple of extra days after your trek, before you fly from Kathmandu to your onward destination.
