Expedition feedback from previous Ama Dablam clients
“I’ve just returned from a successful raid on Ama Dablam with Tim Mosedale. I cannot recommend him highly enough – he blends together comprehensive technical knowledge with awesome organisational skills and a sense of humour.
The trip was brilliant from beginning to end. We acclimatised properly, the resources provided by Tim were excellent (right down to stashes of olives and cashew nuts in the mess tent), the team of sherpas were incredibly supportive to individual climbers and everyone else that Tim had involved – sirdar, cook, porters, liaison in Kathmadu – was skilled and motivated.
Above all, the climbing felt under control and, as far as it can be on that terrain, very safe. Under Tim’s leadership, the strangers who met each other for the first time at the beginning of the trip gelled together into an effective and supportive unit, the majority of whom got to the summit. Moreover, we all had fun! What more could you want?”
Thank you for the excellent preparation and execution of your 2013 Ama Dablam expedition – covering everything from the quality mountain menu and supplies to the minutiae of the daily logistics which allowed me to summit and get back safely.
From arriving at Kathmandu airport until my departure, I was able to relax in the confidence that the necessary arrangements were in place. I had been concerned to join the expedition without knowing any of the others beforehand, but had a great time, which I believe would not have been possible to the same extent without your attention to detail and meticulous efforts throughout to ensure that we all came together as a cohesive team, and the expedition went like clock-work.
Your personalised service and flexibility for individual itineraries and requirements without compromising others was much more than I expected from dealing with other Operators, and it is clear that you have teamed up with quality in-country resources to ensure the ground-support to match and facilitate our needs, including friendly and highly experienced Sherpa guides and base-camp staff.
Will recommend you to anyone that asks!

Tim is a very well organised and meticulous expedition leader. He builds a real spirit of teamwork amongst his clients and Sherpas. During our trip to Ama Dablam he demonstrated his ability to thoroughly plan our ascent and think through every contingency needed in terms of safety. He runs a very tight ship and leaves nothing to chance. I would recommend him without hesitation.
Tim, I’d like to thank you for an awesome holiday / experience in Nepal. All the organisation was much appreciated and the good humour with which you ran the trip. The mountain was of course amazing too and it will be a month to remember for along time to come. Again thanks
I summitted Ama Dablam with Tim in 2003. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him or an expedition of his. He works with rigour, vigour and extremely good humour. Trip felt in control at all times in terms of both climbing and general organisation.
Have a good time on the trip!
Thanks for a really great trip. It was everything I was hoping it was going to be and more.
Thanks for a well organised fun trip!
Cheers – Rob

Thanks for everthing
It’s a priviledge to have been part of such a great trip,
Thanks for a brilliant trip.
Thanks Tim for the 2nd chance.
See you on Astral Highway
So there you have it. No matter what other brochures may say you don’t necessarily know who the leader is going to be for your trip. All the great comments could be about a previous leader and you find that you are on a trip with a complete novice to the mountain. That’s not to say that they won’t run a great trip – but at least with me what you see is what you get.
The choice is yours but all these people (and others) can’t be wrong can they?
