Ama Dablam Expedition

Ama Dablam Expedition includes one of the world’s most impressive peaks to climb. Reaching the summit rewards the mountaineer with majestic views of mountain ranges including some of the highest peaks in the world. This is a spectacular retreat that combines the amazing beauty of nature with a taste of the unique local culture that makes your journey so fulfilling. Peak climbing is a challenging climb involving tiptoeing on a knife-edge ridge. The landscapes are equally enthralling and include rice fields, waterfalls, and alpine glacial ranges. The route includes climbing through the beauty of oak, pine, and rhododendron and you will enjoy abundant cultural and charming diversions along the way. We pass through villages with wonderful cultural traditions with the unparalleled views of the mountains of the well-known the Everest region in the background. Most mountains can be climbed by first-timers in good health and with basic climbing skills, while other peaks require more technical climbing skills and only professional climbers should climb them.

Ama Dablam Expedition is one of the most challenging peaks climbing in the Everest region which is located in the eastern part of Nepal. The trek and expedition’s crew is highly qualified and trained with a decade long experience of climbing and trekking in the Himalayas of Nepal. Trekkers will have an opportunity to know about the lifestyle, culture, and traditions of the Sherpa people who are the local inhabitants of this wonderful land. During the time of the trekking, we will have wonderful views of the mountain which includes Mt Everest, Mt Ama Dablam, and Lhotse, among others. We will have a chance to explore or to enter Sagarmatha National Park which is the home of many rare birds, animals, and flora. The scenery is simply breathtaking with the paradise of glistening peaks, stunning glaciers, and ornate ancient monasteries. This is the most renowned of all the trekking routes around the globe.  The best time for trekking is from March to May and from September to December.
