Mt. Ama Dablam (6812) is one of the most beautiful mountains in the world with pyramid style in shape. Mostly the climbers use its South- West ridge to ascend.  For ascending this spectacular mountain, there will be typically established 3 camps along the ridge namely Camp I, Camp II and Camp III. From the Camp I – starts   crossing the rocky cliffs for fixing the line to move ahead to the Camp II. After crossing many dangerous rocks and ridge we will able to be in Camp II. From Camp-II, the climbing route is mostly mixed with rock, ice as well snow up to Camp III and from the Camp III we attempt to summit over Mt. Ama Dablam. From the Top of it, we you can have a majestic view of Mount Everest, Lhotse, Island peak, Makalu as well rest of the snowcapped surrounded mountains.  All climbers need to have good skills about rock and ice climbing as this mountain is quite technical. Along the snow will be fixed rope, however, the climbers should have enough skills of climbing. We ascend via the standard South West ridge route as it is consider the safest route to conquer its top.

The small town is the main trading center of the Everest region. Overnight in Namche Bazaar.

Day 05:  Namche Bazaar (3,440 m/11,283 ft): acclimatization

This is the day set aside for acclimatization. Health experts recommend that we stay active and move around even during the rest day instead of being idle. There are a few options set aside for this day. We can either stroll around Namche’s quaint villages or come in contact with the Sherpa people and their rich culture, or we can hike up to the Everest View Hotel and enjoy an up-close view of the mighty Everest. While in the Namche village or upon returning from the hike to the Everest View Hotel, trekkers may also visit the local museum containing exhibits displaying the area’s native flora and fauna as well as the history of the Mount Everest region.For trekkers who want to hike for a little longer, a hike to Khumjung village (5-6 hours) may also be an option. While in the village we can visit the Edmund Hillary School and Khumjung Monastery (a monastery famous for housing the head of the Yeti!).

Day 06 :  Namche Bazaar to Debuche

We trek further along the Everest route and pass through beautiful villages and cross the Dudh Koshi River while also enjoying magnificent views of the Himalayan peaks like Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and Ama Dablam along the way. After ascending on a steep trail, we reach the Tengboche Monastery and spend some time there. Later, we descend to Debuche to spend the night.

Day 07 :  Debuche to Pheriche (4,300m/14,107ft): 5-6 hours

We hike to another village called Pangboche on our way to Pheriche. Pangboche is a scenic village surrounded by Everest to its north, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, and Kangtaiga to the east, the Kongde range to the south and the Imja Tse River flowing through the wide fertile valley. From here, we continue further up towards Pheriche, another beautiful village for an overnight stay.

Day 08:  Day of acclimatization

This day is set aside just for acclimatization. This will help minimize the chances of anyone being affected by AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). Today we climb a terrain above the Pheriche village as it is well suited to give us a good hiking experience in a cold condition. After an uphill climb to the top of the hill, we are rewarded with great views of the Himalayas.

Day 09:  Pheriche to Ama Dablam Base Camp (4570m/15000ft): 5-6 hours

We begin today’s trek by walking back to Pangboche and crossing the Dudh Koshi River. Next, we ascend on a trail which will take us to the Ama Dablam Base Camp. The Base Camp is large and open grassland at the foot of Mt. Ama Dablam.

Day 10-24:  Climbing Period

From the base camp we move up through old grassy moraine ridges passing through a saddle and then turning to north climbing up rocky ground and through boulders to the ridge where camp I is set up at an altitude of 19,070 feet. From camp I, we cross a rocky bowl and climb the ridge frequently alternating the sides along the fixed lines to the camp II.Climbing the ridge involves severe rock climbing which leads to the top of a yellow tower. The climbing route here from camp II changes significantly with the steep mixed gully’s of rock, ice and snow. The route leads to the ramp and climbs to an amphitheatre and then passes through steep snow and ice runnel and finally, along the snow ridge to reach camp III at 20,750 feet. The summit from camp III requires steep climb on snow and ice to the right of a huge hanging glacier. The final pitches of the route are on the perfect 50 degree snow and ice face above Camp III. The summit offers the spectacular views of the giant mountains including, Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Pumori, Makalu, Baruntse. We return to camp II and then to base camp.
