AmaDablam Peak Climbing includes the climb to the technically challenging peak in Nepal. Situated in the eastern region, this trekking includes exploring around three various major areas which includes Everest Base Camp, Island peak and AmaDablam. The main peak is at an altitude of 6,856 meters (22,493 ft) whereas the lower western peak is at an altitude of 6,170 meters (20,243 ft). In the native language, AmaDablam represents “Mother’s necklace”. Also, Nick Harper has composed a track named “AmaDablam” on his 2010 album “The Last Guitar”.
Southwest Ridge is a highly popular trekking route. On 13 March 1961, from the same route the first successful ascent was made in AmaDablam by Mike Gill (NZ), Barry Bishop (USA), Mike Ward (UK) and Wally Romanes (NZ) via the Southwest. Although considered highly technical, the peak ranks third popular among climbing peaks in Nepal. Climbing is through the steep rocks and ice, though technical skills like fixing the rope as well as physical fitness are highly emphasized.
The mountain climb begins with trekking to Phakding after the flight to Lukla. Surpassing the Khumbu valley, the journey heads to the Island Peak climbing for acclimatization. Three camps over the base camp are set up along the journey. April–May (before the monsoon) and September–October is the best time to ascend the peak of AmaDablam.
