Ama Dablam Expedition:
The Himalayan giants encountered in Nepal can be added to the legendary climbs. Firstly the climb has taken place on the eight of the highest summits in the world that are in Nepal. There are three seasons for mountaineering in Nepal. The permission season from April to early June was once the only season during which expeditions climbed major peaks. In the 1950s, all expeditions were in the lull before the storm period. The period occurs between the end of the winter winds and the beginning of the monsoon snow.
Climbing to Ama Dablam is technically demanding. And the mountain has it all ice, rock, scrambling, killer views, a great approach, and the great base camp in a meadow with a stream. The expedition offers a superb, technical climbing experience in the heart of the Khumbu region just above the Thayanboche monastery on the way to Everest Base Camp. From the summit, out of the six highest peaks in the world are clearly visible of the five highest peaks are.
Our ascent will be made via the conventional SW ridge route, which involves pure rock climbing. The last section to the summit involves ice climbing followed by a long steep snow slope. Due to the technical nature of the route, that requires 3500 meters of fixed rope and three camps above the base camp to Ama Dablam. Normally the climbing is completed in less than four weeks. However, we do build in an extra few days in case of unexpected bad weather.
