Ama Dablam (6,812m) is undoubtedly one of the most striking mountains on our planet. Located in the Khumbu, Everest region of Nepal, she is recognised as one of the most beautiful peaks in the Himalaya and has special significance to the Sherpas in the Khumbu Valley.
The South West Ridge of Ama Dablam is incredibly picturesque and a fine alpine route of world class standard due to its ease of access, sound rock and a truly spectacular summit day on steep and exposed snow slopes. Summiters are rewarded with panoramic views of the Everest group, Makalu, Cho Oyu and a multitude of lesser peaks.
Ama Dablam was first climbed in 1961 by a New Zealand and American team, and we follow their same route, the SW Ridge. A seven day trek into base camp (4,529 metres) via the Khumbu Valley provides great views of Ama Dablam and we experience some of the culture and hospitality of the Sherpa people.
If you’d like to join us on one of the most beautiful summits in the world, then you’ve come to the right place. We believe that the ascent should be made in the best style possible, a philosophy that has helped our expedition members achieve one of the highest rates of success in the Himalaya and secured our reputation, year after year.
