Ama Dablam comming up
This expedition will give you the opportunity to gain a fascinating insight into the lives of the Sherpa people, as well as the sights, sounds and smells of Kathmandu.
The South West ridge of Ama Dablam is a Himalayan classic and involves some steep, exciting climbing on one of the world’s most beautiful mountains. “A near perfect climb on a near perfect mountain”. The mountain is well named. 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 dominates the eastern sky for anyone trekking to Mount Everest basecamp. Our route is essentially the ‘mothers’ left arm, the SW Ridge
