Ama Dablam is one of the most beautiful mountains in the world. Ama Dablam is situated just above the Tengboche monastery on the way to Everest base camp. Only 12km from the summit of Mount Everest Ama Dablam expedition was first attempted by an Anglo American and New Zealand team in 1961. Ama Dablam Expedition offers fabulous and technical climbing experience in the Everest region. Ama Dablam is the "Jewel of the Khumbu", is nestled in the clouds above the Thyangboche monastery, in the heart of the Sherpa people. The Ama Dablam expedition is technically demanding as it requires ice, rock, scrambling, clear views, great advance and the great base camp in the grazing land with a river. Four highest mountains in the world are clearly visible from the summit Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse Shar, Mt. Makalu and Mt. Cho – Oyu and also the close view of Pumori, Nuptse, Baruntse, and Thamserku.
When ascent from Base Camp to Camp first is considered one the difficult days of the Ama Dablam expedition. The following old grassy moraine ridges, crossing a saddle and then turning north to climb up rocky ground to the ridge where Camp first (5200m) is set up. After camp first we cross a rocky bowl and climb the ridge, frequently alternating sides as we follow fixed ropes to reach Camp 2 at 6,000m. The ridge involves severe rock climbing followed by steep gullies with a mix of rock, ice, and snow. The route to Camp 3 climbs to an amphitheater and then goes through a steep snow and ice runnel to reach the snow ridge to the camp at 6,400m. To reach the summit (6812m) from Camp 3 involves steep climbing on snow and ice to the right of a huge hanging glacier.

I have been to Nepal twice for mountain adventures. The first was for Kala Pattar and Everest base camp. They second was for Mera Peak. Both times I used Tilak, the owner of Glacier Adventure. Both trips were excellent because of his help and caring. I might return for one more trip (Island Peak or Annapurna) and if I do I will use him again
