Trip Overview

Ama Dablam, 6856 meters above sea level, popularly known as ‘the Matterhorn of the Himalaya’ is located in the eastern Himalayan range of Nepal, which is also one of the most impressive, beautiful, and stunning mountains in the World.

The Mountain is in the heart of the Khumbu region, a well-worn path to the Everest Base Camp trek. The stunning Mountain is admired by thousands of trekkers and climbers who pass through the Everest trail. However, the Mountain derives its name from the glacier position on its southwest face at 6500 meters. besides, the suspended glacier looks like a jewel box hanging on the neck of the Mountain, although the name Ama Dablam, literally meaning ‘the mother’s jewel box.’


The trip will offer the very best of Khumbu valley (Everest region).  The region is popular for good reasons: Besides climbing, we confront some of the most spectacular mountain scenery in the World and combine with the famous friendliness and hospitality of the Sherpa people. Besides several trekking days, the acclimatization climb of Lobuche Peak 6119 meters rewards with a fantastic panoramic view of some Himalayan massifs: likewise Everest, Lhotse, Cho-Oyu, Nuptse, Makalu, Pumori and more.

Meanwhile, our ascent of Ama Dablam will be from the southwest ridge. This route gives an excellent and varied climb, sustains at a reasonable level of difficulty, and has a unique platform for settling the camp at a strategic point. Apart from one short section, the Ama Dablam climb is objectively safe.


For the safety, good ambiance, and flexibility, we focus on a team of 4 to 6 climbers and:

  • Supplementary 4-liter Oxygen bottle with mask and regulator and oximeter is part of the emergency kit
  • Means of communication
  • Good connections with rescue airlines in high altitude emergency
  • Weather updates, in particular for the summit of Lobuche peak, the climbing of Ama Dablam

  • Warm-down sleeping bags and down jackets are also available for each participant for the duration of the Expedition (renting by WYE)


Wild Yak Expeditions believe an adventure in the outdoors provides various health benefits, ranging from physical to mental to spiritual. However, Himalaya is the best place to have enough time to discover one and rejuvenate our life with positive well-being. It is scientifically proven that creating some gap, particularly from a hectic life, is essential for successful and a happy life. Besides personal benefits, it also contributes to helping the local economy by visiting the areas.
