Mount Ama Dablam is a beautiful mountain, located almost due south of Mt. Everest and Mt. Lhotse in the Khumbu region. It is a steep pyramid of ice with vertical walls and sharp, exposed ridges. Mount Ama Dablam forms a lasting impression on many trekkers in Nepal, as it is perhaps the most stunning mountain along the popular trekking route to Everest Base Camp.
Join us on our expedition to climb Asia’s most famous rock and ice climb, Ama Dablam in the Everest region. This climb is also ideal preparation for other high altitude expeditions like Cho Oyu, one of the easier 8,000m mountains. Ama Dablam is a challenging and technical mountain involving difficult rock climbing at extreme altitude, so it is not suitable for beginners and you’ll need to have had some rock climbing experience beforehand as well as altitude mountain experience.
Our ascent will be made via the SW ridge route, a technical route with three camps above base camp. The climb usually completed in less than four weeks. The climbing on the route involves pure rock climbing on exquisite granite followed by mixed snow and rock climbing. The last section to the summit involves ice climbing followed by a long steep snow slope up to the summit.
All climbers need to have really good skills of rock and ice climbing and be technically competent to join this Ama Dablam expedition. On most parts of the climbing routes, there will be fixed ropes, however, all climbers should have a good knowledge and practice of the skills of climbing on steep rock and hard compact ice.

We can organise this trek on a private basis for groups of friends, families, clubs, charities or any other group. Depending on your previous trekking experience, you may want a Climb High leader or have no ‘leader’ but sill use the help of one of our guides and/or porters. Costs for this option are available on demand but are often not a huge amount greater than joining one of our ‘fixed departures’. Please contact us with your referred dates and itinerary and we’ll give you a quote.
If you wish to discuss any aspect of the trek or your suitability for it, please contact us by telephone:

Alternatively, you can contact us by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
To book a place on this trek, please complete the booking enquiry on our ‘Reservations’ page.
As we are a Nepali company, you will need to send your deposit by bank transfer to our bank account in Kathmandu. This is a completely safe process and may be done at any UK, European, Aus/NZ or US bank in a few minutes. Some banking websites even allow this to be done online.
Details will be sent to you once you have decided to proceed with your booking.
Trekkers need to provide their own personal clothing and equipment. It is recommended that you use tried and tested kit on the trip rather than relying on brand new kit you’re not sure of.
A complete kit list is to be found on this website.
Climb High is a local Nepali company and as such we treat our own people with the respect and good conditions you would expect. Many team members are from our own families and you can be assured that the treatment they receive is second to none. All insurances and porter conditions are met, and more.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Every effort will be made to keep to the above itinerary, but as this is adventure travel in a remote mountain region, please take the itinerary as a statement of intent rather than an absolute. Travel in Nepal can be dangerous, delayed and highly changeable. Weather conditions, availability of porters and the health of team members can all contribute to changes. The guides and their Sherpa assistants will try to ensure that the trip runs according to plan, but please be prepared to be flexible if necessary.
