  • Best Season : Spring / Autumn

    Spring (March – May)
    During Spring you will experience warm temperatures at lower altitudes and moderate temperatures higher up. The chances of clear, unobstructed mountain views are good, and it is also a good time to see Nepal’s flowers blossom.

    Autumn (September – November)
    This is the preferred trekking season in Nepal. You will be almost guaranteed excellent mountain views, but be wary – this is the peak trekking season in Nepal, so be sure to book your flights in advance and be prepared for more crowded trekking routes. During this time, you’ll also be able to see and participate in the biggest festivals in Nepal – Dasain and Tihar.

Mount Ama Dablam, at 6,812 metre, is the most beautiful mountain of the Himalayan range of eastern Nepal. The name of the mountain comes from the Sherpa dialect, and means "Mother's Necklace"; the long ridges on each side are like the arms of a mother (ama) protecting her child, and the hanging glacier can be thought of as a dablam, the traditional double-pendant containing pictures of the gods, worn by Sherpa women.

The world knows the region as that of Mount Everest, but actually Mount Ama Dablam is its dominant mountain, due to its exposure above the valley to the east of Khumbu.

This mountain is the third most popular Himalayan peak for permitted expeditions. Given its mix of steep rock and ice along the climbing route, high above the wide valley of Tengboche, many climbers love to test their technical climbing skill on it. There have been a number of accidents but the most serious one may have been due to global warming, when on 13 November 2006 part of the dablam of Mount Ama Dablam broke loose and killed three climbers from Europe and three Sherpa climbing guides in their sleep in Camp III.

The standard route up this mountain is along its South-west Ridge, requiring three standard camps above Base Camp.

This beautiful mountain was first climbed on 13 March 1961 by Mike Gill (NZ), Barry Bishop (USA), Mike Ward (UK) and Wally Romanes (NZ) via the Southwest Ridge. They were well-acclimated to altitude, having wintered at over 5,800 metres near the base of the peak as part of the Silver Hut Scientific Expedition of 1960-61, led by Sir Edmund Hillary.

The expedition team will meet in Kathmandu, the capital City of Nepal, a bustling, energetic and exciting city with many amazing sights to see and things to do. It is suggested to come with at least 3 free days at Kthmandu before the expedition is started for to provide enough time for to gear-shop! The city has a good selection of local and international mountaineering equipment and clothing in its stores. After ensuring every possible requirement is properly packed, we start our journey to basecamp.

The Basecamp of Amadablam is reached over a 6-day leisurely trek through villages of the Sherpas. We’ll begin by taking a 40 minute flight to Lukla and then another 5-day trek visiting its several villages on the way.

Before reaching to Base Camp we will stop at Pangboche Village ad visit the monastery, which also houses the Yeti’s Skull, and request a special blessing from the highly regarded local lama (monk), Lama Geshi. We accept good wishes in the form of a khata (a scarf with the eight lucky signs displayed by Buddhist during all religious and farewell ceremonies) from the lama and continue our walk up to Basecamp where our Sherpa staff will be waiting us.

There a final ceremony will be celebrated for all expedition members and equipment that we will take with us on mountain. Once the puja is performed the Sherpas and members will begin their work of setting camps above the base camp, fixing rope in technical parts and transporting of high altitude food etc.
