Mount Amadabalam 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 Amadabalam 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 Amadabalam was made in 1961 by the New Zealand and American Team via South-West Ridge.
