Ama Dablam was first climbed in 1961 by a New Zealand and American team, and we follow their same route, the SW Ridge. A six-day trek into base camp (4,529 metres) via the Khumbu Valley provides great views of Ama Dablam and we experience some of the culture and hospitality of the Sherpa people.
The well-trained Sherpa cooks prepare high quality ‘western’ food as well as popular Sherpa dishes in the Base Camp Lodge. On the mountain your guides will cook and a team environment means all efforts to assist with collecting snow for melting water and other meal preparation tasks will be much appreciated. Please indicate any specific dietary requirements you may have on your application form.
Expedition members will be sent a list detailing all necessary individual clothing and equipment to be provided.
