Ama Dablam expedition is the most famous peak. Ama Dablam means reliquary of the mother. Its references are the star-shaped necklace worn by Sherpanis (women of the Sherpa ethnic group). During, the Ama Dablum expedition We follow a normal route from the southwest. The route opens by Mike Gill, Barry Bishop, Mike Ward, and Wally Romanes in 1961. Ama Dablam expedition is in the Khumbu massif, at the foot of two 8000, Everest and Lhotse.
Along with the Matterhorn, Alpamayo, and K2, the Ama Dablam expedition is one of the four most beautiful mountains on the earth. additionally, this pyramid of rock and ice is a very nice objective for experienced climbers with, as a reward at the top, a fantastic view of the giants over 8000m that surround it, including Everest. Its aesthetics and its difficulty are real but superable for an experienced mountaineer, making it particularly attractive. Despite, everything it is accessible to about twenty climbers every day when the weather is good.
Ama dablum expedition considers the most beautiful and technical climbing peak in the world. many mountaineers and trekkers have passed during expeditions or treks to Everest base camp. Ama Dablam everyone has dreamed of it because its summit pyramid has impressed more than one. At 6,856 meters above sea level Mt. Ama Dablam represents a holy grail for seasoned mountaineers. . To achieve this dream, we will climb in a small group of participants. therefore, we provide an experienced Nepalese mountain guide per participant for their security.
We now have 15 days dedicated to your further acclimatization, rest, fix of the various high-altitude camps, and the final ascent to the summit. The route between the base camp and the advanced base camp (5400m): the path follows the ridgeline (gentle slope) which dominates the base camp. The route between the advanced base camp (5400m) and Camp 1 (5800m): crosses an area of large blocks of rocks. The camp is located above a large slab of rock a hundred meters that can be slippery.
Itinerary between Camp 1 and Camp 2 (6000m): the route follows a horizontal ridge with many crossings and passes several projections. At the end of this ridge is the “yellow tower”: a vertical projection of 6 meters. The camp is slightly above. Itinerary between camp 2 and camp 3 (6300m): departure from the camp by a steep section in snow/ice then crossing the gray tower: mixed delicately about 80m. After a crossing and a steep corridor, the ridge becomes easier to camp.
At last, the Itinerary between camp 3 and the summit (6856m) is climbing by steep snow slopes (+ 40 °) with the passage of a glacier snowfield before approaching the summit slope. From the summit, an exceptional view of a multitude of peaks including 5 to more than 8000m, Everest (8850m), the highest point on the planet, the Kangchenjunga (8586m), the third summit of the planet, the Lhotse (8516m), fourth, Makalu (8463m), fifth and Cho Oyu (8201m), sixth.

Kathmandu and trekking
In a 3/4* category hotel in Kathmandu.
During the trek, we will be either in an individual tent or in a lodge. The lodges in Nepal are of very random comfort. The lodges can look like a refuge or sometimes a cottage from home. It is mostly a family house with double, triple, or dormitory rooms. Toilets and showers are always separate.
At the base camp, we are in individual tents.
Staying in the base for several weeks must be as comfortable as possible, in order to allow a good recovery on the return from the altitude camps. It must allow us to face a period of bad weather in the best possible conditions. Each participant has their own individual tent with a comfortable mattress. A heated mess tent is the main living area. Tables and chairs are permanently installed there. We also have a shower tent and a WC tent (the solid waste in evacuated drums)
During the ascent, at the high camps, we have an altitude tent for 2 people or even 3 people on the last camps.
Hygiene & Laundry
Toilets: The base camp is equipped with toilets (cans removed and emptied in a suitable place far from the glacier) and toilet paper. Take care to wash your hands with a hydro-alcoholic gel (to be taken from your personal pharmacy) after each visit to the toilet. For the higher camps, we recommend that you bring a bottle that you will use to urinate at night to avoid having to go out.
Daily hygiene: a basin with soap and water is available at the entrance to the mess tent. Water is intended for washing the face and hands, do not drink it.
Shower: hot water available (request to be made in the kitchen). Only take showers in sunny weather to avoid catching a cold!
Laundry: water (cold) and basin to be requested from the kitchen, bring biodegradable products only.
Kathmandu and trekking
Upon your arrival in Kathmandu, a welcome dinner is offered to you on the first evening. Likewise, upon returning from the expedition, a farewell meal is provided.
In the cities, many small (or large) restaurants allow us to discover the typical local cuisine. With the exception of Kathmandu, breakfasts and evening meals are prepared by the lodge’s kitchen staff or cooks and taken in the lodge’s dining room or in the mess tent. Depending on the profile of the stages (length of the day’s walk and/or presence of water), midday snacks will be served hot or cold in the form of picnics.
All meals are prepared by the kitchen team using local ingredients including rice, pasta, lentils, potatoes, vegetables, eggs, a little meat, etc. They are served to you in a private tent. Non-alcoholic hot drinks such as tea or coffee are offered to you at will. We recommend that you stay hydrated at all times.
At altitude, you often have to force yourself to eat. The use of freeze-dried food is almost unavoidable. But such and such a dish, appetizing in the valley, quickly becomes subject to disgust in the altitude camps. During the preparation weekend, we bring a sample of freeze-dried dishes for you to taste to indicate your preferences which we strive to respect (depending on the stocks available during the final purchases). You can also bring along some of your favorite meals on the expedition (if you have any). For your comfort and the pleasure of taste, we provide some “delicacies” from France (salty and sweet).
Each tent has a stove to melt snow (MSR Reactor type) and make water for your freeze-dried meals and hot drinks. The necessary gas cartridges are supplied.
WATER: provide tablets (Hyclonazone, Micropur, or others) to disinfect the water you put in your water bottle, depending on the source and on the advice of your guide. It is sometimes possible to buy purified water and refill your water bottle without having to buy bottled water. You can also buy “mineral” water in the cities (not included in the price), but its ecological balance is poor, as you know. Also, we do not recommend it.
