Ama Dablam Base Camp Trek

Ama Dablam Base Camp Trek

Ama Dablam Base Camp trek sets off with a scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, from where your actual trekking begins... 
In Sherpa language, ‘Dablam’ means a piece of traditional necklace worn by Sherpa women around their neck. Hence ‘Ama Dablam’ stands for ‘mother’s necklace’.  Ama Dablam is perhaps the most beautiful mountain to look at. Standing at 6812m, Ama Dablam is one of the most popular peaks to climb and is regarded as the Matterhorn of the Himalayas. 
During Ama Dablam Base Camp trek, You will walk along the Bhote Koshi river up to Namche, the capital of Sherpa community. Here you will be able to experience the Sherpa culture and try local cuisine. Further you will visit Tyangboche Monastery, one of the biggest and oldest monasteries in the Himalayas. The Monastery will offer you the first and the best views of the Ama Dablam peak. Along the way you will have ample opportunity to explore Himalayan wildlife and pristine biodiversity. 
Your final stop will be Dingboche and Mingbo from whence it is just a day hiking trip to Ama Dablam base camp. The base camp offers spectacular up-close views of  Ama Dablam peak and other world’s highest peaks including Mount Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Kangtega. The highest point of the trek is Ama Dablam Base Camp 4600m. 
Since the trek falls within Everest National Park, the area has been well preserved for its unique biodiversity. Your trekking path occasionally crosses the trails used by wild animals such as Yaks, Himalayan Thar, Snow Leopard and Red panda. Enjoy your walk through the forests of oak, juniper and rhododendrons. 
The Ama Dablam Base Camp trek is less crowded in terms of trekkers than Everest Base Camp trek. This is a complete tea-house trekking led by our very capable guides. Autumn (Sep-Nov) and Spring (Mar-May) are the two best seasons for Aba Dablam Base Camp trek. 
Besides trekking, Nepal Environmental Treks & Expedition also organizes expedition on Mt. Ama Dablam. In fact we organized the first Indonesian expedition on Mt. Ama Dablam in 2012.
