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.
