Ama Dablam is one of the most beautiful mountain in the world, situated in the Himalaya range of eastern Nepal. The main peak is 6,812 meters high. Ama Dablam dominates the eastern sky for anyone trekking to Mount Everest Base Camp. Ama Dablam is known as one of the most impressive mountain in the world, not for it's altitude, but for it's beauty, aesthetics and the pure exposure encountered high on it's flanks. Most climbers follow the South West ridge as normal route, climbing expedition style, fixing ropes, ferrying loads and acclimatizing slowly. The mountain has gained in popularity over the past 8 years. It's common to encounter high altitude Everest veterans having problems with the technical difficulties encountered on the crux pitches of this climb.
Ama Dablam was first climbed on March 13, 1961 by Mike Gill (NZ), Barry Bishop (USA), Mike Ward (UK) and Wally Romanes (NZ) via the South West Ridge. Ama Dablam is the third most popular Himalayan peak for permitted expeditions. The most popular route by far is the South West Ridge. The climbers typically set up three camps along the ridge with camp 3 just below and to the right of the hanging glacier, the Dablam. A climbing permit and a liaison officer are required when attempting Ama Dablam. As with Mt. Everest, the best climbing months are April-May (before the monsoon) and September-October-November.
