Everest Region in Nepal
Mt. Ama Dablam is considered by some as the most beautiful mountain in the world. It is popularly known as the ‘Matterhorn of the Himalaya’, the overwhelming, ice-coated granite pyramid of Ama Dablam with the height 6,856m located in the Khumbu region to the south of Everest and Lhotse. The hanging glacier on the southwest face of Ama Dablam resembles a ‘Dablam’- the sacred ornament box worn by Sherpa women –giving rise to the name “Ama Dablam” or “Mother’s necklace”. The mountain stands above the famous Tengboche Monastery which is traditionally visited by climbers in the region.
The mission to summit the Ama Dablam peak is technically demanding and presents every supreme challenge imaginable: ice, rock, scrambling, breathtaking views, great approaches and a wonderfully situated base camp in a meadow with a stream. 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 be technically competent for this expedition.
We follow the standard South West ridge route to the summit as it is considered the safest route, free from most dangers such as avalanches. We begin the approach as usual in the region from Lukla (2850m) and then slowly trek through the Sherpa villages along the trail. We take our time to properly acclimatize before we reach base camp and begin the climbing period. During our challenging Ama Dablam climbing expedition, we always make every effort to keep you completely safe and happy.
If you can walk 5 miles a day and are in good aerobic shape (with a doctor’s approval), you can do fine and make it. The actual trekking is on mostly level ground with a few sections of steep hillsides – up and down. You should not carry more than a light day pack with a jacket, water and snacks. However, it is the altitude that creates the main issues. That said, the better shape you are in, the more you will enjoy the overall experience.
There’s no specific training needed if you are reasonably fit. If you are completely sedentary, then yes some cardiovascular training would be recommended. Stair climbing or hill walking will get most people ready. Remember you’ll be walking up and down rough paths for 8-12 days. You’ll be at altitude too which will make things much harder. Having a good level of fitness will help you enjoy your trek more and always remember, it’s not a race!
October, November and December is Nepal’s peak season and it is the best time to go trekking.
February, March and April is the end of the dry season and it is the second best time of the year to go trekking.
November, December, January and February, the sky is clear, but it can be very cold in the mountain. May to June is Nepal’s hot season and it can get very warm indeed. June to September is the monsoon season and the least popular time to go trekking in Nepal.

It depends on your route, but EBC trek usually takes about 15 days. We suggest you not to go on a rush trek primarily due to the altitude. You will be landed in Lukla at (9,250 feet) and go to EBC at (17,500 f.). If you go too fast or rush your itinerary, you might get altitude sickness which is harmful.
