Ama Dablam Climbing with Everest Base Camp Trek

Our Ama Dablam most beautiful mountain on the planet people says, but for us it is goddess mountain of Khumbu, very beautiful mother mountain. Ama Dablam demands a high level of skill and the whole team need to highly experience climbers. The route has a little bit of everything – granite rock, steep snow, and ice with multiple camps on the mountain. This 30-day expedition is a true classic and a must do for any technical alpine climber. And also for people those who wish to get training before aiming higher peaks in future. This peak will definitely give you much more lesson and knowledge about fear of unknown.

More the 60 years now best mountaineers from around the world have walk under this mother mountain as they climbed and approached Everest, Lhotse and the other great peaks of the Everest Region of Nepal. Its graceful lines of rock, ice, and steep snow has pulled at each of them. Four of the six highest mountains in the world ring. This photo describe it well.

Our route on Ama Dablam will be the Southwest Ridge, as it was climbed by the first ascent team led by Barry Bishop in 1961. This classic route is technically challenging. Namaste Nomad sherpas and guides will lead the route and fix lines where they are useful. We will approach Base Camp from Dingbuche and the climb slowly, enjoying the Khumbu region and allowing our bodies to acclimatise. Our Ama Dablam expeditions always ascend one of the region’s 6000 “ Trekking Peaks ” in preparation for the Ama Dablam climb. This demanding climbing requires commitment and skill, and offers the thrills of airy exposure.

Day 1

Arrive in Kathmandu. We will meet you at the airport and take you to your hotel. Briefing in the afternoon, meeting our Nepali team.

Day 2

Our first day in this famous city will be spent touring major temples and sites. Kathmandu is a rich cultural destination. Last chance to buy some gears before leaving to Lukla next day. In addition we will be completing any last minute Expedition Permit for our climb. And evening we will go for Nepali dinner.

Day 3

The flight to Lukla. This spectacular mountain landing strip is the gateway for expeditions, trekkers and Sherpa people to the Everest Region. Today we will do some kilometre hike up to Phakding village, nice straight village path, passing trekker and ponies.

Day 4

Today we hike along the Koshi river, entering Sagarmartha National Park just after lunch. By mid afternoon we enter Namche Bazaar. Namche is small, scenic beyond belief, and surprisingly cosmopolitan. A mixture of Tibetan traders, tourists from around the world, expedition climbers, proud Sherpas, monks, Nepalese civil servants, dust, mud, colorful costumes and yaks.

Day 5

Rest day, Namche Bazaar.  In Namche we are acclimatizing while we prepare the logistical details of our Expedition. We stay indoors in a classic Sherpa style lodge, one that is operated by an old friend of ours. We can take a 10-minute walk to the National Park overlook just above our lodge. Our view of our objective, Ama Dablam, from this vantage is world famous.

Day 6

Khunde via Thame.  This is a day to get some exercise and visit Sherpa friends.  We will cover some distance and move briskly for conditioning. We might visit the Monastery at Thame or the memorial for Hillary’s wife above Khunde.  We will spend the night in Khunde, sleeping at 12,800 feet.

Day 7

We arrive at Tengboche. This sacred and inspiring spot is the home of the same Rinpoche, or reincarnate lama, who blessed Hillary and Tensing when they approached Everest in 1953, and Barry Bishop and the team who would make first ascent of Ama Dablam 8 years later. We will receive our blessings as well, and reflect quietly from the most famous mountain monestary in the world.

Day 8

The classic hiking day of the Khumbu. Ama Dablam towers above us as we walk up the Imja Khola valley. We pass through Pangboche, where the trail crosses the river leading to Ama Dablam Base Camp, and continue on to Pheriche village.

Day 9 – 11

Before moving to our Base Camp we take advantage of another day of acclimatisation at Pheriche. There is excellent terrain in this area for climbing higher for conditioning and two nights at this elevation will aid our acclimatisation.

Exploration day and hiking up to dance base camp and return to base camp to new home above 15,700 feet at the base of the West Face of Ama Dablam will be a place to relax and prepare for the climb. The view above us of the “Dablam”, the hanging glacier adjacent our route and high above us will be exciting.

Day 19 – 20

Day 21

Move to Advanced Base Camp, (17,700′)

Day 22

Move to Camp I ( 18,700′) The climb involves moving carefully on 4th class terrain and through boulders. We return to Advanced Base Camp for a 4th night.

Day 23

Move to Camp I.

Day 24 – 27

Once we have occupied Camp I we can decide based on weather, coordination with other teams, and our “gut feelings” when to begin our summit push.  The route from Camp I to Camp II is a beautiful rock route around gendarmes and towers, exposed, with fantastic views and good quality rock. The terrain is 4th class and 5th class rock climbing with the crux a 5.7 section at the ” Yellow Tower” leading to Camp II, a thrilling spot, large enough for our tents and our dreams as we settle down for a climber’s night of rest.

The route to Camp III is mixed climbing including an ascent of a 50 degree snow couloir and a traverse along the “mushroom ridge.” Camp III itself is at 21,000′ beside the famous hanging glacier that is the Ama Dablam, or “Mother’s Jewel Box” for which the mountain is named

We might have already have reached the summit by day 28, otherwise we will have 3 more alternative days to summit.

Return to Base Camp and Sherpa Party to celebrate.

Just come back from Bhutan and India, had the most amazing time. Mohan looked after us well and always made our travels easy, taking care of everyones needs. I experienced some amazing sights which I do not think I would have on any average tour, we really did see the real India. I am now planning my next trip. Can not recommend them enough.

I took part in a trek to Annapurna Basecamp with Namaste Nomad in April 2019. I had trekked with Mohan and his team twice before- to Langtang Valley in Nepal in March 2018 and The Picos, in Northern Spain in June 2018. This was my third trip- so I wasn’t as anxious about what awaited me in Nepal! The route to Annapurna is very accessible, the walking was tough enough, I thought- a lot of steps, which are sore on the knees! We were well looked after my our guide, Mohan, and his Sherpa team, Dowa and Mingma, as well as the rest of the team. The food, as on all the trips I’ve been on, was really superb. I loved the rice, lentils, local vegetables and of course the ginger tea! The accommodation was basic but always clean and adequate. Reaching Annapurna Basecamp was the high point of the trip for me- I will never forget it! We were part of a small group, just four hikers. I was traveling with a friend. We had both been part of larger groups on our previous two trips.I think I would prefer to travel in a bigger group if/when I go on a trip like this again. It was a great experience and I recommend Namaste Nomad.

Once in a Life Time Experience

"

I have just returned from the most remarkable trip of a lifetime to Everest Basecamp. I don’t usually write reviews however on this occasion I feel the need to share my experiences which I hope will inspire others to travel and to book a trip with Namaste Nomad. I booked this trip in Jan 18 after meeting with Mohan. After my initial meeting I had no doubts in travelling with Mohan and his team. Mohan is an exceptional person who is so passionate about his business and works so hard to ensure everyone meets their goal and has an amazing trip. Everest Basecamp was everything I imagined and much more. The views are breathtaking and the sense of achievement on arriving at Basecamp is so hard to put into words. The trip is a life changing experience as you learn so much about yourself and indeed about others. It really was a journey from the time of booking until we returned home from the Himalayas. I found it very challenging physically, mentally and emotionally but that’s what made it so very special. Throughout the trek Mohan was so attentive to our every need, every decision he made was the right one and his motivation and encouragement ensured we all made it successfully to Basecamp. Mohan’s knowledge of Nepal and the Himalayas is exceptional. Everything from planning the food to gauging the weather to recognising signs when some of us weren’t too well was spot on If you are considering a trek then I can honestly say that you will not get anyone better to travel with than Namaste Nomad. The team of Sherpas and Porters are incredible and the bond made with the Sherpas is one I will never forget, it really was incredible. As for value for money you will not get a more competitive price as I priced several others which were significantly more costly than Namaste Nomad Overall if you want a challenging and life changing experience then I encourage you to make that adventure with Namaste Nomad and I guarantee you will not regret it Thanks to Mohan and his team for everything, I will never forget it. Xx

I love traveling with Nameste Nomad! This is my fourth trip with Mohan and Nameste Nomad, the reasons I keep coming back are; 1. Affordable- they are half price of most guide companies! 2. Ecologically friendly- when trekking in Nepal we take boiled water over plastic bottles, He asks that people think of their impact as travelers, leaving only footsteps not trash. 3. Quality- from transport to hotels we stayed in high quality hotels and comfortable transportation. 4. Personal touch- the guides where fantastic in looking after all sorts of details and needs. Each trip I have learned new words to use in the countries I’ve been in. 5. Humane travel- Nameste Nomad asks you to participate in the local culture by trying and eating the locally. As in Nepal you will be asked eat Vegetarian since that is the local norm. 6. As a small organization I have had the privilege to travel with the owner, Mohan on multiple trips. 7. Local impact- since I have traveled multiple times with Nameste Nomad, I have had the privilege to see Mohan do charity work while trekking. We have fed small children as we hiked and have stayed at off the beaten path locations to provide a more equitable impact in the mountains of Nepal. One group raised money to aid a village women’s group. Two years later I visited to see the final work that the money did. 8.safety- All guides with Nameste Nomad have had training in first-aid. In Nepal most of his guides have mountain rescue skills from working on Mt. Everest. 9.Multi-National groups. As an American, it is refreshing to travel with persons from all over Europe and Australia. Each time I’ve been on a trip I have met new friends. 10. Experience-each trip has been filled with wonder and delights; from my co-travelers to the knowledge of the guides. I have nothing but great memories and new friends!

Annapurna basecamp trek

Himalayas, they are beautiful, intimidating and challenging. You might think they are perhaps to hard for you? Well, they are hard, but in our everyday life we are often very comfortable. We need to be challenged from time to time to remind ourselves that we are more than our houses, jobs and what others think of us. I needed that break and challenge two years ago. I joined Mohan and his team on the journey to Everest Basecamp. And lets get the boring (but important) stuff out the way. The team is as professional as it gets. We had the nicest food, best accommodation and best guides. Mohan created atmosphere of community and support. I often looked at other groups (that probably payed 2 or 3 times as we did), and they did not had the service and the fun that we did. But apart from all of the pragmatic stuff, they are the Himalayas themselves. My choice was to abandon the internet altogether (its there if you need it) and enjoy being there. For two weeks, the world forgot about me as i forgot about it. All i cared about was walking. It was like a meditation, an it was simple. Just one foot after another until we reached the destination. Mohan does expeditions the way they should be done. He cares about your spirit, what you eat, what you drink, how you sleep. He knows that those things will get you there and help you with the altitude. His team is supportive, and very experienced. I will be a repeat customer one day, and not once.

October 2016 Everest Base Camp... I went with Namaste Nomad having looked at other companies based in Ireland doing the same trek. Mohan was always available to answer questions. He himself has trekked to EBC lots of times which is reflected in his knowledge and experience. He employs Sherpa's (and pays them a fair wage !) whom are also very experienced trekkers and some have summited Everest !! they are very in-tuned into the needs (inc health needs, signs & symptoms of altitude sickness), informing us of the different peaks and opening to talking about their experiences summiting mount Everest. The weather was not in our favour for part of the trek. One morning...at 4am the cloud finally lifted; Mohan came and woke us all to share our first glance of mount Everest it was amazing. It is a well worn track to EBC and the key is to take it slowly and enjoy...live in the moment! Mohan always ensured we ate well, drank plenty of clean water & paid attention to everyone on the trek to ensure we remained healthy & safe in order to reach EBC. Mohan had arrange some touristy stuff in Kathmandu before our departure to Lukla...which was great and an opportunity to meet and get to know the group. I would recommend Mohan and his company Namaste Nomad !! I have subsequently booked a trip to Bhutan with Namaste Nomad :)

Thank you, Namaste Nomad and Mohan, for an epic trekking experience of a lifetime to the Everest Base Camp (EBC). The planning process was straightforward with timely and accurate communication from Mohan. He was quick to answer our questions which inspired great confidence in the company. We knew that we were in good hands. Mohan and his team made every effort to ensure that we were all safe and that everyone achieved their goals of reaching EBC. He documented the trip along the way and posted photos and stories on social media, which was comforting, enjoyable, and informative for family and friends at home. The food is clean, healthy and delicious, and was carefully prepared to provide perfect fuel for our bodies throughout the trek. The company is also very eco-friendly as they bring all plastics and rubbish down the mountain for recycling. While we were enjoying the amazing Himalayas of Nepal, Mohan and his team expertly handled the daily logistics of travel and lodging. Mohan’s familiarity with the region and its ever-changing weather patterns paid off as he was able to adjust our daily treks to maximize the experience and breath-taking views of the Himalayas. He always had a Plan B! And, a big shout-out to the Sherpas who are all skillful climbers and very friendly. The company provides duffle bags for the trekkers which helps ensure that the Sherpas only carry up to 48.5 lbs. each! Namaste Nomad truly cares about their clients and ensures that they get the most out of world-class trek. Highly recommended!
