Amadablam Expedition


Trip Highlights;

  • Amadablam Expedition is one of the toughest mountains to climb. Hence previous climbing experience and high level of technical skills are strongly recommended.
  • Magnificent views of Mt. Everest, Mt. Cho Oyu, Mt. Makalu, Mt. Lhotse, Lhotse Middle Peak, Lhotse Shar, Mt Nuptse, Mt Baruntse and other numerous peaks within Everest and Khumbu region.
  • Opportunity to explore the high mountain valleys and several species of endangered wild animals.
  • Experience the culture and tradition of warm and friendly Sherpa ethnic tribe community.

Trip Introduction;
The majestic Mt Amadablam is an attractive mountain that is located almost due south of Mt Everest and Mt Lhotse in the Khumbu region. The mount rises high above the Dudh Koshi river valley and wins every trekkers’ heart when trekking along the main trekking trail towards Everest Base Camp. The climb of Amadablam is made over a steep pyramid of ice with vertical walls, sharp and exposed ridges. It is a thrilling climb over rock and mixed snow. The final climb to the summit of Mount Amadablam includes hard ice climbing over a steep snow slope to reach the summit of Amadablam. Though the climb is a bit tedious and tiresome, we are rewarded with stunning views of the towering mountains of the world and hidden beauty of Gokyo Valley. 

Amadablam Expedition with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition starts with a scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. Lukla is the gateway to Khumbu and entire Everest region of Nepal. After landing at Lukla we gather our gears and begin our trek. Our trek is over a gradual ascending trail that goes along dense rhododendron forests to reach Namche Bazaar – The Sherpa Capital. Acclimatization is very crucial at higher altitudes, so after spending a full day rest at Namche Bazaar we continue our trek through Deboche and Pheriche to reach Amadablam Base Camp. At the base camp, we will spend additional day for acclimatization and for pre-climbing training.

Fully equipped with all the climbing gears we will follow the instructions and directions given by our experienced Sherpa climbing expert as we head for the summit climb of Mount Amadablam. After several days of challenging and tiring climb, we head towards the summit of Mt. Amadablam. Once at the top we are rewarded with magnificent views of world’s towering chains of high mountains. Having achieved the summit of the majestic Mount Amadablam for a lifetime experience, we retrace our steps back to reach the base camp. From the base camp, our return journey passes through Tyangboche, Namche Bazaar and back to Lukla. Our adventurous climb of Mt Amadablam Expedition and Island Peak Climbing with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition ends with a sweeping flight from Lukla back to Kathmandu.

Mt Amadablam climbed successfullly :)))

Thanks Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition for arranging incredible climb of Mount Amadablam. We enjoyed every single moment of both trekking and climbing. All the members in the team were very polite and humble. Many thanks to our guide – Ang Dendi Sherpa whose commitment to reach the summit was much stronger than ours. Following his footsteps, we slowly made our climb over to the summit of the Mt. Amadablam  and enjoyed the views of world’s towering mountains including Everest – the top of the world. Everyone stood at a pin drop silence and just relax with magnificent views of other surrounding high peaks.

We recommend Nepal Guide Treks and Expeditions to anyone interested in doing treks, peak climbing  and other adventurous activities.
