Amadablam Expedition – the world’s most technical peak climbing in the Himalayas.
Our Amadablam expedition offers the most superb, technical climbing experience in the Himalayas. There is no doubt that spectacular Ama Dablam is one of the world’s most impressive mountain peaks standing at the center of the Khumbu valley in Nepal. Due to its unique, sharply pointed soaring shape, ascending this sheer peak is the ultimate dream of many climbers worldwide. They aspire to conquer it and stand on the incredible summit with its close panoramic views of magnificent Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu and many more Himalayan peaks. If you have good previous climbing experience and wish to participate fully as a team member of an expertly led expedition to one of the world’s most technical peak climbs, then our Ama Dablam expeditions will ideally provide your ultimate challenge.
The expedition to the summit of Amadablam peak is technically demanding and presents every supreme challenge imaginable: ice, rock, scrambling, breathtaking views, great approaches and a wonderfully situated base camp in a meadow with a stream. All climbers need to have really good skills of rock and ice climbing and be technically competent to join this Amadablam expedition. On most parts of the climbing routes, there will be fixed ropes, however, all climbers should have a good knowledge and practice of the skills of climbing on steep rock and hard compact ice. We follow the standard South West ridge route to the summit as it is considered the safest route, free from most dangers such as avalanches. During our challenging Amadablam climbing expedition, we always make every effort to keep you completely safe and happy.
Our Amadablam Expedition Route in Autumn 2018
We begin our Amadablam expedition by taking an exciting flight to Lukla and set off on the well-trodden route to Everest Base Camp for proper acclimatization before the ascent to the Amadablam Base Camp. Our expedition crews completely stock our Ama Dablam Base Camp with food, other provisions and all the necessary climbing gear and medical supplies while the climbing team members are on their acclimatization hike.
We use our Amadablam Base Camp as the base station for the duration of our Amadablam expedition in Nepal from there we start our bid to scale the summit. Challenging climbing begins to the southwest ridge from base camp – over boulder fields, slabs, cairns and gullies to reach to our expedition Camp 1 at 5700 meter. From Camp I we follow the east side of the ridge and continue our climb on narrow crests and traverses until we are able climb onto the west side of the ridge. The short section of the hardest pitch leads to Camp II that is in a very narrow space for camping. We continue climbing the ridge to the awesome challenging traverse eastwards leading to the gully between the Grey Tower and other rocky structures to reach our Ama Dablam expedition Camp III.
We start our Ama Dablam summit day push from Camp III following the southwest ridge to the summit crossing many obvious and deep crevasses. The joy and pride you will feel in conquering the fabulous Ama Dablam peak is beyond imagination. Your successful historical ascent to the summit will reward you with an outstanding, breathtaking, panoramic mountain view and give you everlasting memories that you will treasure all your life.
