Ama Dablam Base Camp Trek
Trip Code: EAD
Ama Dablam Base Camp Trekking is one of the highly acclaimed short treks in the Everest region which offers a chance to get closer the world’s highest mountains including Mt. Everest, Ama Dablam , Lhotse and Nuptse. Literally, Ama Dablam means Mother’s Necklace. When we view Mt. Ama Dablam from Tengboche it seems to be an arm of mother protecting her child on each side. And, a hanging glacier symbolizes the shape of a pendant worn by a Sherpa woman.
After arrival at Lukla, our trekking journey begins passing through the beautiful forest of rhododendron and Sherpa village up to Namche Bazaar with striking views of the area. We follow a good trail from lodge to lodge through beautiful Sherpa villages. You will enjoy spectacular views of Mount Everest and many other Khumbu peaks from Tengboche.
From the base camp of Mt. Ama Dablam (4,420 m) we can enjoy spectacular 360 degree mountain panoramic views of distinctive peaks soaring high above Mt. Nuptse-Lhotse massif. On the cultural aspect this trek to Ama Dablam Base Camp gives us a chance to explore the traditional lifestyle of the highlanders, their religious practices, customs and festivities.
We will visit through traditional Sherpas’ settlements, Buddhist Gumpas( monasteries) on the way and also if we are lucky we can see the golden eagle, snow pigeon, yellow- billed and red- billed choughs flying over in the blue sky. Plants and flowers like rhododendron, magnolias, blue pine, chir pine, juniper and hemlock are also seen in the high altitude that makes the nature lovers more delightful. This trek is recommended for those who want to do something extraordinary in terms of adventure and cultural exploration. We have graded this trek as moderate and can be arranged for a group of friends , families and adventure seekers. It is possible to combine this trek with a most popular Everest base camp trek adding extra 2 days on the itinerary. For more detail about Ama Dablam Base Camp trekking, please contact us.
