Overview

Mount Ama Dablam popularly known as the ‘Matterhorn of the Himalaya’ is a beautiful mountain, located almost due south of Mt. Everest and Mt. Lhotse in the Khumbu region. It is an ice-coated steep pyramid of ice with vertical walls and sharp, exposed ridges.

Mount Ama Dablam forms a lasting impression on many trekkers in Nepal, as it is perhaps the most stunning mountain along the popular trekking route to Everest Base Camp. The first ascent of Mount Ama Dablam was made in 1961 by the New Zealand and American expeditions team via South-West Ridge.

Our expedition can also be from the south-west route, a technical climb with three camps above base camp. The ascent usually is completed in less than four weeks. The climbing on this route involves pure rock climbing on exquisite granite followed by mixed snow and rock climbing. The last section to the summit involves ice climbing followed by a long steep snow slope. After a strenuous climb, you reach the top at the elevation of 6812 meters, mesmerizing panoramic views of Mt. Everest, Makalu, Cho-Oyu and many other peaks. 

You will have the full assistance of our highly professional climbing guides who has previous experience of climbing the mountain plus they have skills and techniques to tackle every hurdle during the climb. With their support, you are one step closer to the summit.
