Ama Dablam Expedition 2021
(& ’22, ’23 etc)

Ama Dablam Expedition 2020
The summit of Ama Dablam as seen from our Expedition Base Camp.

Ama Dablam is, without a doubt, one of the most stunning mountains in the world. The maps report Ama Dablam as being anything from 6,812m to 6,856m – but one thing for sure is that it is over 22,000 feet.

Ama Dablam commands the Everest region and is by far and away the most impressive peak along the Khumbu trail. People who trek in the region will always come away with a few mountain names added to their vocabulary, and Ama Dablam will undoubtedly be one of them.

This trip not only takes in the sights and sounds of Kathmandu, but also the historic trading post of Namche Bazaar and the world famous monastery at Tengboche. What better way to acclimatise and get ourselves ready for the mountain of a lifetime?

I am very fortunate to be intrinsically associated with Ama Dablam. This is a position and accolade that has been developed from the many expeditions that I have run there along with the attention to detail that I and my staff constantly strive to perfect. The most variable factor from season to season aren’t the conditions on the mountain, the weather or the logistics – it is the clientele, their differing requirements and the range of time that people take to acclimatise. This is why we run one of the most versatile and flexible itineraries that there is to make sure that you are given the maximum opportunity to develop your own climbing schedule whilst being closely monitored, advised and mentored along the way.

Rest assured – we have a strong and reliable reputation for a very good reason.


But please don’t just take my word for it that it’s going to be a great trip – check out the excellent feedback from previous expedition members.
