  • Nepal
  • 28 days

Overview


One of the most extraordinary climbs you can imagine. First, the mountain itself. Ama Dablam is undoubtedly an incredibly beautiful mountain with the purity of its lines. The climb itself is really amazing with a true mix of rock and ice climbing quite rare in Nepal. A large part of the ascent is on the ridge with incredible scenery. Look at the gallery for incredible images of climbing Ama Dablam, especially the view of Camp 2, hanging on the crest with vertiginous drops on each side. The summit grants you a view over four 8,000 meters peaks: Everest, Lhotse, Makalu and Cho Oyu. You will not regret choosing Ama Dablam.

We like

  • A spectacular and comfortable base camp located on the grassy field
  • The most aerial climb you can imagine with an incredible Camp 2 sitting on the top of a rock spire
  • A mixed climb with rock and snow/ice sections
  • The acclimatization on another beautiful 6,000 m peak (Island Peak) just at the bottom of Everest
