Mt. Ama Dablam Expedition peak is located in the eastern part of Nepal of the Khumbu region. Ama Dablam means “mother’s necklace” because the long ridges on each side are like the arms of a mother (ama) protecting her child. Plus, the hanging glacier is thought of as the Dablam, the traditional double-pendant containing pictures of the gods, worn by Sherpa women. This was first climbed on March 13, 1961, by Mike Gill (NZ), Barry Bishop (USA), Mike Ward (UK) and Wally Romanes (NZ) via the Southwest Ridge.
Ama Dablam Expedition is the third most popular peak for permitted expeditions. The most trafficked route by far is the Southwest Ridge. Climbers typically set up three camps along the ridge with camp 3 just below and to the right of the hanging glacier, the Dablam. Ama Dastands among many 22,000 to 24,000-foot peaks. It surrounds the high valleys of this region and also stands out by way of its classic beauty. It is a steep pyramid of ice with vertical walls and sharp exposed ridges and from the summit. 360 mountain views of the Khumbu region with beautiful valleys on both sides add beauty. Like Mt. Everest, the best climbing months are April-May (before the monsoon) and September-October.
