Ama Dablam Expedition (6,812m) Dfficult Route

Ama Dablam
Ama Dablam (6,812 m) is a beautiful mountain located in the Himalayan range in the far east of the Khumbu region, Nepal. Ama Dablam means "Mother's necklace." The long ridges on each side are like the arms of a mother (ama) protecting her child, and the hanging glacier is thought of as the Dablam, the traditional double-pendant containing pictures of the gods and worn by Sherpa women. The first ascenders were Mike Gill, Wally Romanes, Mike Ward, and Barry Bishop in the year 1961. Many mountaineers love the mountains not for the altitude but for the mesmerizing beauty of the mountains along the popular trekking route to Everest Base Camp.
The prime route to climb Mt. Ama Dablam is from its south-western ridge, which was followed by the first ascenters. The aesthetic route requires climbers to be technically sound to cross the difficult, steep snow and ice rock.
Ama Dablam is the third most popular Himalayan peak for permitted expeditions.
