If you’re like most mountain lovers, you’ve probably already found yourself drooling over pictures of Ama Dablam and you’d be able to point her out in a line-up, no questions asked. The iconic pyramid-style peak is one of the most stunning in the whole of the Himalayas, sitting at 6,812m above sea level with the lower western peak at 6,170m. On this unforgettable climb, you’ll start on the same path as the classic Everest Base Camp trek, weaving through the Khumbu region of Nepal above the monastery village of Tengboche and having a heck of a lot of fun as you go.
Ama Dablam is considered by most the hardest trekking summit on earth, which means you’ll need plenty of climbing experience behind you before you can hope to tackle this peak safely. While the fixed ropes at the summit makes it a “more accessible” mountain, we really wouldn’t be comfortable taking any adventurers up there unless they had a decent understanding of mountaineering techniques and a few challenging peaks under their belt. But don’t let that put you off. If you’re not quite ready to tackle Ama Dablam yet, click here to take a look at some of our other climbs.
And if you think you’re up to the challenge? Keep reading. Because this expedition will test your limits and force you to prove just how strong your mountain stamina really is. It’ll push the boundaries of your fitness and your body’s ability to acclimatise to rapidly increasing altitudes too. But those views from the pyramid peak? And the sense of achievement? They’re second to none.
If you want to feel exhilarated and exposed to the elements in the most sublime of the Himalayan ranges, it’s high time you joined us on Ama Dablam.
