Ama Dablam, popularly known as the “Matterhorn of the Himalaya”, is one of the gorgeous mountains in the world located in the Himalayan range of Eastern Nepal. Ama Dablam characterizes itself with its unique pyramid shape. The hanging glacier seen on the southwest face of Ama Dablam resembles the sacred ornament box used by Sherpa Women. This box is known as Dablam, therefore giving it the name “Ama Dablam” This peak is 6,812 meters in elevation from sea level. This mountain is not impressive for its height but for its aesthetics, it holds. Mt. Ama Dablam is located in the Khumbu region of Nepal, south of Mt. Everest. Therefore, one should see splendid views during the ascent to the pinnacle.
The usual ascension to Ama Dablam is done from the Southwestern ridge. This ascension was the same route followed by the climbers who reached the top for the first time to the top in 1961. Commonly, climbers set up three camps just below and on the right of the hanging glacier, “Dablam”. The hike is modest up to camp 1, but the challenge starts from camp 1 to camp two as it gets more technical on the narrow edges of ridges made from granite. This challenge increases even more from camp 2 to camp 3. Some risks of glacier falls cannot be escaped, but it is said that adventure without risk is Disneyland. One should train the rock and ice climbing skills and get used to high altitudes before thinking of Ama Dablam. Suppose you have former experience as a climber and wish to join a team on an expedition to the world’s most extraordinary mountain. In that case, Ama Dablam Expedition is for you.
