Ama Dablam is a mountain in the Himalaya range of eastern Nepal. The main peak is 6,856 meters (22,493 ft.), the lower western peak is 6,170 meters (20,243 ft.). Ama Dablam means “Mother’s necklace”; the long ridges on each side like the arms of a mother (Ama) protecting her child, and the hanging glacier thought of as the dablam, the traditional double-pendant containing pictures of the gods, worn by Sherpa women. Ama dablam is also popularly known as the ‘Matterhorn of the Himalaya”.

The interesting Facts about the Ama Dablam is that when the team of Sir Edmund Hillary summited the mountain for the first time, the then king of Nepal nearly imprisoned him for climbing the scared mountain without any permission.

The first summit to Ama Dablam was made on 13 March 1961 by Mike Gill (NZ), Barry Bishop (USA), Mike Ward (UK) and Wally Romanes (NZ) via the Southwest Ridge. Ama dablam offers a varied climb through the Himalayan rock, ice and snow. The climb is moderately technical but accomplishable. The mountain is perfect for the beginners, novice and expert climbers as well. The mountain can make a base for your future climb to Cho Oyu, Lhotse and Mount Everest. Three camps will be set along the ridge with the camp 3 just below the hanging glacier, the Dablam. The climb up to the camp 1 is moderate, the ascent from there is challenging along the crystalline ridge. It gets more technical as we go up from camp 2. From camp 3 we go around the hanging glacier, then cross sharp mountain ridge and a crevasse between the ice cliffs and make to the summit.
