This mountain is considered to be the most technical & difficult climbing. The mountaineers have to cross-difficult ice rocks and steep snow climbing on their climbing route.
Ama Dablam Expedition Mountaineers usually have to pitch 3 high camps on the way to Mt. Ama Dablam 6812m. To reach the first camp from base camp, the climbers have to pass the toughest and the difficult passing through the difficult saddle ridges; and then should turn to the north climbing up through the rocky ground and the boulder. We are in Camp one now. From Camp I – one has to cross the rocky bowl and should climb the ridge via to the fixed lines to Camp II. From Camp II after crossing over severe rocks and ridge which lead you to a camp 2.
The climbing route from Camp II is mostly with the steeply mixed alleyways of rock, ice and snow. The route leads to the slope climbing to snow ground and then passes through steep snow and ice tunnel then finally along the snow ridge goes to Camp III, From here to the summit, it is steep climb on snow and ice to the right of a huge hanging glacier. From the Top of mount Ama Dablam, a very charming scenery of Mount Everest, Lhotse, Island peak, Makalu, Khumbu region and rest of the snowcapped surrounded mountains can be envisioned.
