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.

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.

See what people are saying about us!


I am a professor at George Mason University. Namaste Nomad arranged our study abroad trip to Nepal (Conservation Storytelling). We had used another company the year before and have spent many years in Nepal. This company out performs anyone else in Nepal and anywhere globally. Mohan (the CEO) is extraordinarily knowledgable and works very hard to make sure everything is exactly as you need. The people that work for him are the absolute best available in country. Our guide had led multiple tours up Everest and I 100% trusted him with our lives. Our drivers were the same. In addition, Mohan cares very much about the world, the environment and the ability to share cultures and beliefs. And this is how his company is run. With responsibility and heart.


Great for Student Learning Trip!


What can I say about Namaste Nomads, just Excellent. From start to finish, everyone that we dealt with were helpful, professional, caring and accommodating in what we wanted for our adventure. Itinerary changes were no problems. The advice we were given before we flew out to Kathmandu and all through the trek were invaluble in making the trek a success. We were picked up at the airport and taken to our hotel and met by Ashim who checked us in and explained about the rest of the trip. We met our guide Dawa (5 times Everest summitier). So much experience from all the Namaste Nomad staff. The trek was fantastic and Dawa (guide) and Sudip (sherpa) looked after us throughout. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Their advise from what to eat and how to cope with the altitude was invaluble. The porters who carried our bags were efficient and our bags were always at the lodge well before we arrived. When we got to EBC a change to the itinerary was discussed with us. Dawa suggested we climb Kala Patthar that afternoon and see the sunset over Everest rather than seeing the sunrise early in the morning. What a brilliant suggestion as we saw Everest on fire. If you want to do trek in Nepal then check these people out. I would not hesitate to go with them again. Already planning a trip in 2020 with them.


Everest Base Camp Trek


The trip with namaste nomad to Everest Base Camp was truly amazing. The group I was with were also a great bunch of people and it made the trip a lot more enjoyable. The professionalism that mohan and his team of Sherpas provide is exceptional. We did see some other groups on the trip and unfortunately we could clearly see that a lot of things were not provided for them. Travelling with mohan, everything is taken care of from food to the bed you sleep in. It’s almost like you have a group of babysitters because the only thing you have to worry about is the walking !. Mohan and his team provide a safe friendly and thoroughly enjoyable journey even when you hit some hard points. I would highly recommend Namaste nomad for any trip you might want to do. From start to finish the trip was amazing !

Life changing !


I had the pleasure of recently being part of another wonderful trip to the Himalayas - Annapurna Base Camp - with Namaste Nomad - a wonderful small business. There are so many reasons I would always choose Namaste Nomad over any other company. Most importantly it is a true Eco friendly organisation, everything is accounted for along the treks - food, water and waste. They are also Animal friendly and only use porters for transport. This is better as it is providing more jobs for locals, and removes any animal cruelty that can occur only the trek due to pushing yaks or donkeys too hard, too far and without adequate food or water. The food during my trips was phenomenal! If you listen to Mohan and the rest of the guides you are guaranteed success at altitude. Vegetarian, local and fresh food are on the menu. Everyone can live without meat for a couple of most definitely don't want to be eating meat in a country that doesn't do health and safety and the food has to be transported on some ones back and could be 4 or 5 days before reaching its end destination - your plate. I have never felt safer on a trip in a foreign country than with Namaste Nomad. The sherpas, porters and guides are all local and have been with the company for a long time. They are all courteous, respectful, friendly and extremely knowledgeable - many of them having submitted Everest and other Himalayan peaks many times over. Everything is taken care of from your first interaction with Mohan. Flights, hotels, transport food, etc. The cost is the best value I have seen - even better value than most as the experience you are getting is unbelievable. As if that wasnt enough, Namaste Nomad also helps out small, local people and communities around Nepal with fundraising and charity works. If you want to raise money to give back to some of the communities you know that it is going directly to where it is needed and not into the pockets of charity CEOs. Don't listen to me any more, just book a trip with Mohan and see for yourself!

Another incredible trip with an amazing company


I couldn't recommend this trip enough, I highly recommend Mohan as a guide. Trip was so enjoyable. I can't wait to go on another . From scenery to accommodation , everything was top class.


Picos De Europa


I travelled with a group from Ireland to Nepal where we started our joureny to Everest Basecamp. This trek was very special to me as I was doing it for charity in memory of my late brother who was a keen hillwalker. Our group was made up of 9 people from Ireland, Scotland and USA. Such a fantastic group it turned out to be. We all supported each other and made new friends, having alot of fun along the way. Oh From start to finish Mohan our leader, did everything in his power to ensure that our trek was 100% successful. The trip was very challenging but very rewarding. He supported us all even when we were struggling and was there at our beck and call at all times. I would like to give a special mention to the 3 sherpas who accompanied us during our trek, Tshering, Pimba and Paldene. Such fantastic support to all of us and true gentlemen. I would highly recommend this group for anybody contemplating a similar experience.

Trek to Everest Basecamp 20th September 2019


I first heard of Mohan and Namaste Nomad 2 years ago and since then I have been on 3 amazing trips with them. The first one was in March 2018 when I went to Langtang in Nepal. My first time there I was excited but more than a little apprehensive. I needn’t have worried. Mohan and his team of sherpas were absolutely wonderful. Everything was taken care of, tickets, transfers, all accommodation, most meals, money exchange and advice on where and what to eat and drink. We had been told that it would be completely vegetarian and dairy free on the trek. I had no problem at all with the vegetarian part of it but thought the dairy free might be tough. It wasn’t at all. We ate the most delicious food all prepared by our sherpas using fresh mostly locally sourced ingredients. The dal boat was to die for. We were constantly reminded to drink water, use sunscreen, wear a hat etc. The scenery in langtang was spectacular, towering snow capped mountains and deep valleys with raging rivers. It was an area which had been badly hit by the recent earthquake and there were sad reminders of the damage which had been done. Overall a very good and memorable experience. June 2018 I headed off to the Picos in Spain with Mohan again. For anyone who might be reluctant to travel too far , but wants amazing scenery I would totally recommend the Picos. Somewhat similar to the Himalayas I thought, one area known as the gorge stood out for me anyway. It was breathtaking. We stayed in the most beautiful little villages, ate delicious food and drank lovely local wine. Just a little as we had to remember we were walking in the morning! In April of this year I went back again to Nepal this time to do Annapurna base camp ( usually just known as ABC). A totally different area but no less lovely. It had a lot of forest and was very fertile. As well as being our guide Mohan was a great source of information about the local people and their way of life. I never stopped asking questions!. Again great walking , lots of steps this time but we kept going and finally on Easter Sunday morning at around 8 local time we arrived into ABC. We were told that the morning was the time to see it at its best . The rising sun in such a blue sky , the snow capped Annapurna range all combined to made it such a highlight. It was so well worth it. I think the fact that I did 3 trips with mohan and his team in such a short space of time says it all and I’m certainly not finished yet. For anyone who wants a trek with a difference but at a good price I don’t think you could do much better.

My treks with Namaste Nomad


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


Everest Basecamp


My husband and I found out about Namaste Nomad while on a hike in Ireland the year before. We stayed in connect with Mohan and planned going on the Island Peak trek. Being in the USA, all our communication was by email and Mohan answered all of our questions so we felt ready when we flew to Nepal. The trek was incredible. No stress. Mohan dealt with accommodations in Kathmandu and in the Everest Circuit, food the entire trek, flights to and from Lukla, and taxis from the airport. He gave great advice on the hike up, like avoiding dairy and meat and keeping a constant steady pace, so we didn't get sick or hurt before summit day. He was concerned about our well being and wanted us to make it to the summit and be happy as much as we wanted to. His sherpas were incredible men. Humble, sweet, and considerate. You can trust your guides and you will make a great friend at the same time.

Island Peak April 2018 Nepal Trekking


I went to India and Ladakh with Namaste Nomad two years ago. I absolutely loved it, particularly the Himalayas. I therefore challenged myself to trek to Everest Base Camp with them. I did this last year and I can truthfully say that it was one of the most wonderful things I have ever done in my life. I am in my sixties, but the care and attention given me made everything not only manageable but immensely enjoyable. I've now signed up to climb Island Peak with Mohan and the team - my first serious Himalayan mountain. It's a prospect that fills me with a mixture of great excitement and a healthy dose of fear - but I know that I am in the safest of hands. Mohan and the team are watching you every step of the way. Safety is their number one priority, but they manage to make every trek great fun too. Bring it on!
