If you are a keen mountaineer, you will recognise Ama Dablam the moment you see it. Ama Dablam in Nepal is one of the most stunning Himalayan peaks. The main peak of this iconic mountain sits at 6,812 metres, with the lower western peak at 6,170 metres. The Ama Dablam climb weaves through the Khumbu region of Nepal above Tengboche, from the same path as those heading to Everest Base Camp.
Although fixed ropes are used on Ama Dablam, and this makes the summit accessible to many more people, you still need to have a good understand of climbing and mountaineering techniques. Ama Dablam’s difficulty means that it is not one for the inexperienced mountaineer – this is a serious expedition that will challenge everything from your stamina and endurance to your fitness and acclimatisation.
Only in Nepal can you trek up such an iconic and challenging peak. However, as the world’s hardest trekking peak, the sense of achievement when reaching the Ama Dablam summit is totally unrivalled.
