    About - Mt Ama Dablam Expedition (6,812 m)

    Ama Dalam, one of the most beautiful peaks of the Great Himalayan range stands at an astounding elevation of 6812m. There aren’t many peaks that are as beautiful and have an immense profile as Amadablam has. This mountain is extremely popular among mountaineers and demands high respect because the literal Nepali translation of Ama Dablam reflects as “Mother’s jewel”. The glacier of Southside represents “Dablam” which is a sacred necklace worn by Sherpa women. Amadablam resides at the heart of Khumbu valley which makes it an even more adventurous peak. 

    Ama Dablam even though it's not as high as considered other peaks in the Khumbu region but is a very technical peak and that is why climbers with previous experience of climbing a trekking peak or any kind of other peak are recommended for the Ama Dablam expedition. The way up is difficult and leads through steep ice and rock South-West Ridge. No matter how beautiful it is, it demands strength and endurance. Due to its unique, sharply pointed soaring shape, ascending this sheer peak is the ultimate dream of climbers. They aspire to conquer it and stand on the incredible summit.

    It's one of the world’s most attractive mountains. The awe-inspiring ice-coated granite pyramid-like mountain soars above the Dudh Kosi River valley south of Everest and Lhotse in the Khumbu region. The base camp of Ama Dablam involves a cultural trek up to  Everest base camp. The panoramic views of Mt. Everest, Cho Oyu, Lhotse, and Makalu can be observed from the peak of Ama Dablam. The ascent from Ama Dablam Camp I to Camp III is considered the most difficult part of the climb.  

    Ama Dablam's first expedition

    Ama Dablam was first successfully climbed by Mike Gil, Wally Romanesl from New Zealand, and Mike Ward from the United Kingdom via the South Ridge of the peak. 

    Route to Ama Dablam

    The route to Ama Dablam peak is completed using a set of four camps.

    Base Camp: The base camp of Ama Dablam is situated at an elevation of 4500m 
    Camp I: Camp one is set up at an elevation of 5600m. The climbers have to pass the toughest and the difficult passing through the difficult saddle ridges; and then should turn to the north climbing up through the rocky ground and through the boulder and you’ll reach Camp I.
    Camp II:  The rocky bowl climbs the ridge via the fixed lines and reaches Camp two. It's set up at an elevation of 5900m.
    Camp III: Camp three the final camp before the summit is at an astounding elevation of 6200m where you will prepare to push for the summit if the weather favors, if not you’ll be descending down the base camp to try for another summit.

    Essential Information

    Tourist Visa
    Immigration Office, TIA (Tribhuvan International Airport) under the Department of Immigration has been facilitating tourists flying to Nepal by providing visas on Arrival. To obtain a visa upon arrival by air in Nepal you must fill in an application form and provide a passport copy. Visa application forms are available at the arrival hall, though some airlines provide this form on the flight. There are now visa registration machines in the immigration hall for people with electronic passports, which will automatically fill out the visa form for you after inserting your passport. Or, you can get a visa from Nepalese Diplomatic Missions stationed in your own country before your arrival.

    On Arrival Visa Fee at Entry Points
    15 Days – 30 USD
    30 Days – 50 USD
    90 Days – 125 USD

    Getting in Nepal
    There are many entry points in Nepal but most of you will take a flight to Kathmandu which is the only entry point for travelers who are entering by air. Your expedition will officially begin after flying to Kathmandu where you will be picked up by a Luxury Holidays Nepal representative at the airport, so you need to provide your arrival details in advance. And also lets us know if your flight gets delayed right away so we can manage everything accordingly.

    Domestic Flights
    Domestic flights in Nepal are the main intercommunication to reach the region where you are going for your expedition as most of these regions are disconnected by road transport. Your flights into the Khumbu and any other region that are mentioned in your trip program will be reserved by us on your behalf. Due to the terrain and landscapes of Nepal domestic flights might get caught in weather delays which is why we recommend your return flight back home be changeable at any time.

    Altitude Sickness
    Altitude Sickness is an effect of high-altitude atmospheric pressure that results in a quick change in oxygen level and air pressure of the human body. The symptoms will arise while walking at a high altitude without properly acclimatizing the body. It can happen to anyone even if they have great physical fitness if they climb faster at a higher altitude. It is better to ascend gradually to prevent altitude sickness.

    Money
    There is good access to ATMs anywhere in most city areas, however, you will find it hard in rural areas. Different banks have their maximum withdrawal amount limit. Most hotels, restaurants, airlines, and travel agents accept cards as well. It is more important to have enough cash as there will be very limited or no ATM access in trekking areas and also some reserve cash for emergencies. USD is selectively acceptable in Nepal but still, you need to make sure you have Nepalese currency on hand during the expedition.

    Tipping
    There is no significant rule about tipping your guide or porter but it has been more common in Nepal. It is on you to decide whether to thank the guide and porter with tips or not. But in most cases, guides and porters expect tips from you though they don’t ask for tips verbally.

    Drinking-Water
    The water quality in Nepal isn’t the greatest so it is better to use a water filtration or purification tablet. You can also drink boiled water if you like. Make sure to drink a lot of water during the expedition as your body requires more at a higher altitude.

    Safety
    Nepal is a heaven for adventures and is comparatively a safe destination for those adventures. There is a low rate of serious crime however you should still take sensible safety measures. Keep an eye on pick-pocketers and snatchers in buses and tourist areas. You can avoid walking with a large amount of cash on your own. Always let your guide know if you’re going out during the trip.

    Internet and SIM Card
    Most cities have extensive access to the internet, also hotels, restaurants, and cafes that offer free WIFI. But outside the cities, in the remote trekking areas, it’s fair to non-existent. During the expedition, the internet is available at the base camp for a certain amount of cost. You can easily purchase a SIM card at an affordable cost. You can use the data package using the SIM card as well.

    Vaccinations & Immunization
    Before traveling to Nepal, please consult your travel clinic for updated information on vaccinations and immunizations. The commonly recommended vaccinations are Chickenpox, Diphtheria-Tetanus, Polio, Shingles, Covid-19, Hepatitis A & B, Encephalitis, Malaria, Measles, Rabies, Typhoid, and Yellow Fever.
