Amadablam also known as 'Matterhorn of the Himalaya' has the height of 6,812m above the sea level. This beautiful mountain is located almost due south of Mt. Everest and Mt. Lhotse in the Khumbu region. This mountain is in pyramid shaped and one of the most stunning as well as impressive mountain. AmaDablam means "Mother's necklace", the long ridges on each side like the arms of a mother protecting her child, and the hanging glacier thought of as the Dablam,the traditional double-pendant containing pictures of the gods, worn by Sherpa women. For several days, AmaDablam dominates the eastern sky for anyone trekking to Mt.Everest basecamp. The summit of this mountain was first scaled by Mike Gill (NZ), Barry Bishop (USA), Mike Ward (UK) and Wally Romanes (NZ) via the Southwest Ridge on 13 March 1961 from its base situated on 4200m. The South-West Ridge is the standard and most popular route taken by the climbers to ascend Mt. Amadablam is considered as a technically difficult peak to conquered. Basically, Our Ski Guides Nepal Outdoor team set 3 camps during the expedition. The amazing and breath taking panoramic views of huge mountains like Everest, Cho-Oyu, Makalu and Lhotse on the way to the top of AmaDablam increases the excitement of climbing.
