The Matterhorn of the Himalayas
Ama Dablam is one of those peaks which, like the Matterhorn, K2 or Alpamayo, can be described as “the” most beautiful mountain in the world. Defying the laws of gravity, this pyramid of rock and ice was closed to expeditions until 1978. Edmund Hillary, a conqueror of Everest, had touched the summit in 1961 from the southwest ridge. But this emblematic summit of Nepal will still be banned for almost twenty years.
Going up the Khumbu valley, it suddenly appears in the background, standing majestically in the sky. This makes it clear why the Sherpa Gods chose this mountain. You will not be able to escape from its charm so easily until the day you set foot on its summit.
We will follow the original route of Hillary, placing three altitude camps: at 5700 m, 6000 m and 6300 m. The route will be equipped with fixed ropes for the most difficult passages, and this will allow you to contemplate Everest and its 8000m crown from the top and in total safety.
This climb is an exceptional challenge for every climber, an exciting way to access the kingdom of the Sherpa Gods …
