Amadablam Expedition 31 Days

Trip Information

The one you see can’t be true and the one you feel can’t be false. The same statement goes absolutely suitable in case of expedition in Ama Dablam Mountain. The altitude of the mountain is just below 7000m yet it can’t be considered as the peak for peak climbing because of the strenuous route to its summit. The mountain standing tall with 6856m height is considered as the holy mountain to the Sherpa of the Khumbu region that is the region why they have named it as Mother’s Necklace in Sherpa dialect.

The mountain peak was first summated by the four climbers from New Zealand, Uk and America in 1961. The expedition period is about a month and during the expedition period the trekking and expedition encompasses the scenic beauty, panoramic mountain views and all the attractions of the Everest Base Camp Trekking. Though the height is below the expedition mountain range the daunting and challenges lying in the path to the mountain summit make it very difficult to climb. Our expert Sherpa and expedition crew would do utmost best to secure the safe passage of the team as well as help you succeed in summating the Ama Dablam. As recently in 2006 some mountaineers were killed in Avalanche and from then on extra care is being implemented while climbing the mountain.

Come and join the expert Sherpa mountaineering team of Backpacker Treks & Expedition for this glorious and challenging expedition campaign in Ama Dablam Mountain.
