This expedition requires good climbing experience and if you think you have the knowledge and wish to be part of an exciting expedition led by experts towards one of the most challenging peaks, then this your chance of fulfilling that wish.
The journey to the peak is unforgiving, yet satisfying, filled with every obstacle imaginable.

As this is a challenging expedition, climbers need to have good knowledge rock and ice climbing. It is a must to have good knowledge and practice of the skills of climbing on steep rock and hard compact ice.

Our Amadablam Expedition Route in Autumn
We start our Amadablam climb by taking an invigorating flight to Lukla and set off on the well-trodden course to Everest Base Camp for proper acclimatization before the climb to the Amadablam Base Camp. Our crew totally stock our AmaDablam Base Camp with nourishment, different arrangements and all the essential climbing apparatus and medical supplies while the climbers are on their acclimatization climb.
There are three camps above the base camp before reaching the summit. The ascent from Base Camp to Camp 1 is technically challenging. From Camp 1, we follow existing fixed lines and then establish new ropes wherever necessary both for ascent and descent. The climb from Camp 2 to Camp 3 is comprised of mixed rock, snow and ice, which is loose in certain places. The climb from Camp 3 to the summit is relatively less technical. After summiting the peak, we return back to the base camp.
The Amadablam Base Camp is used as the base station for the span of our Amadablam campaign in Nepal.
To reach the first camp from base camp, the climbers must pass the hardest and the toughest part of the journey, passing through the difficult saddle ridges; and then should turn to the north climbing up through the rocky ground and through the boulders until we finally reach Camp 1. From Camp 1, one must cross the rocky bowl and should climb the ridge with the help of fixed lines to reach Camp 2.
The climbing route from Camp 2 is mostly covered with steep alleyways mixed with rock, ice and snow. From Camp 2, we continue climbing the ridge moving eastwards leading to the gully between the Grey Tower and other rocky structures until we reach Camp 3.
We start our push for the summit from Camp III following the southwest ridge to the crossing many dangerous and deep crevasses. It’s a steep climb over ice and snow until we reach the top.
The delight and pride you will feel in conquering the fantastic Ama Dablam is unimaginable. The challenging attempt to the summit will reward you with an exceptional, amazing, all-encompassing mountain view and everlasting recollections that you will treasure all your life.
