Ama Dablam Expedition

Great pyramid shaped Mount Amadablam (6812m.), located to the south of Everest and Lhotse, characterized by vertical walls and sharp exposed ridges is renowned for its incredible beauty. This peak stands above Thayangboche monastery on the way to Everest Base Camp. Mt.  Ama Dablam leaves a lasting impression on many as it is perhaps the most stunning mountain along the popular trekking route to Everest Base Camp. However, the expedition demands good skills on rock climbing, ice climbing, sufficient experience of high altitude and technically competent.

The trip starts from Lukla (2840m) and passes through the legendary Sherpa village of Khumbu region. It is required to set-up at least four camps from the Base Camp to accomplish the expedition. We follow the standard South West ridge route to the top, as it is considered the safe route which is free from the objective danger such as avalanches, glaciers and icefalls. Amadablam is not a new name for the climbers. It offers a superb climbing experience to the new comers with numerous cultural and scenic diversions close up view of Mt Lhotse, Makalu, Cho- Oyu and Mt. Everest.

Acclimatization

Mission Eco Trek is professionals at operating at high-altitude. Each trip we run has a realistic acclimatization programme. Our entire adventure trips are designed to allow gradual height gain, spread over a number of days. High altitude is not predictable sickness, so there is no way of predicting who will suffer from altitude but, for the vast majority of people, a slow ascent to height will produce minimal effects. We can provide 'Gamow Bag' as a precautionary measure as per your request on renting basis. Acclimatizing takes time and there are no safe shortcuts. All trips to altitudes in excess of 3,000 meters carry medicines essential to the treatment of altitude sickness, and our leaders, guides and staffs are well trained to administer them and to know the symptoms.
