Ama Dablam Base Camp Trek one of the popular trekking as being less crowded compared to other routes to reach the Everest Base Camp and other destination in the Everest region. Mount Ama Dablam (6812 m) derives her name from the traditional language where Ama means mother and Dablam means necklace worn by Sherpa women on her neck. Hence, this peak is named as mother necklace in traditional language but usually, people called it Ama Dablam.
Trek Overview: If you are looking to experience the wilderness for a time that suits your executive timelines, then this trek takes you to the base of a highly technical iconic mountain peak named ‘Amadablam’’ that goes over 6000m, and from there on its all bliss. ‘Ama Dablam’ stands for or means ‘mother & the necklace’ – because the perpetual glacier which hangs like a ‘Dablam’ is similar in shape to a piece of conventional jewelry worn by Sherpa women. Our trail swerves into the bustling Khumbu capital village town of Namche Bazaar and Tengboche Monastery, which is the largest in the region and from both these areas we get fantastic views of the King Peak of Mt. Everest…
Nevertheless, whilst bunking out in the Sherpa capital of Namche Bazaar, getting awesome views of Everest and visiting the eminent monastery at Tengboche, we also wade out into far-flung areas that are so wonderful to discover on lesser-known trails that are so quiet and desirable in comparison to the more crowded trekking circuits in the Everest region. A further element to our journey is a stroll into the Sherpa villages of Khunde and Khumjung where we get to see the late Sir Edmund Hillary's projects of generosity through the Himalayan Trust for the development of Sherpa communities in the Khumbu. And we also have the opportunity to interact with the local folks which give us thought-provoking insights into their lifestyles & culture.
After our journey in the wilderness of nature, we return to Kathmandu & spend two nights in the comforts of a star hotel, with time to both chill-out and take a walking tour to experience some of ancient Kathmandu’s hectic energy and color.
