Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Nepal is the homeland of the highest mountain on earth including the thousands of incredible peaks. Inside this huge number, Ama Dablam Mountain is the most beautiful and iconic mountain in Nepal as well as in the world. It lies in the heart of the Khumbu valley, which is the capital of Mt. Everest. It has 6,812m / 22349ft altitude.

Ama Dablam is the most spectacular and iconic mountain in the world and it’s a dream mountain of all alpinists around the globe. The shape and structure of this mountain are astonishing and majestic. You can experience diverse views of this mountain from different places inside the Khumbu valley. Ama Dablam mountain is considered as the most technical mountain to climb, because of the steep faces of snow, and rock that one must negotiate during the ascent of the South face. The unique contours dominate all the highest mountains in easter region of Nepal.

Ama Dablam means “Mother’s necklace”. “Ama” means mother in Nepali and long ridges represent her arms. The famous hanging glacier which is just below the summit resembles the traditional Tibetan jewelry, which is called Dablam. These necklaces are usually worn by Sherpa women and it all started when Tibetan migrated Nepal in 400 years ago. Now, they are recognized as the most powerful and strongest people called Sherpa.

First Ama Dablam was successfully climbed in 1961 by Mike Gill, Wally Romanes (NZ), Barry Bishop (USA), and Mike Ward (UK) from southern ridge.
