The magnetism of Ama Dablam draws many a mountaineer, but climbing this peak puts even the seasoned mountaineer to the test as it is a technically challenging peak which requires tremendous mountaineering skills. The normal climbing route for climbers to ascend on is the south-west ridgeline. Apart from the base camp, climbers are required to set up three other camps in order to summit this peak. If the weather is favorable one can ascend and descend this mountain and make it back to base camp within four to five days.
Those aspire to ultimate challenges and thrills of peak climbing, one must be prepared to negotiate steep snow-covered slopes and ice covered rocks. The first section of the ascent from the base camp to the first high camp is probably the toughest that entails climbing up past ridges formed by glacier debris. You then turn north and after passing through rock walls and huge boulders, you will reach your destination.
The next section from the first high camp to the second is relatively similar to the first. You have to pull your way up through rocks and a ridge following the fixed lines. Climbing from this point takes an even more challenging turn. You now pass through vertical gulleys- tunnel-like formations- which are formed by continuous erosion and filled with rock, ice, and snow. A snow-covered ridge then takes you to the third high camp. You continue on steep ice and snow, proceeding up a hanging glacier. Standing on top you will exceedingly be rewarded for your rigors. The summit of Ama Dablam gives you spectacular views of Mount Everest, Lhotse, Island Peak, Makalu and numerous other peaks sticking out to the sky. It is simply a stunning panorama of the highly varied and highest mountain region – namely the Everest region – in the whole world.
