Overview and Highlights

Mt Amadablam is one of most beautiful mountain in the Everest region of Nepal with a height of 6,823m/22,385ft standing high over the famous Sherpa villages of Pangboche and Tyangboche. Trekking as well as mountaineering here has been one of the favourite activities for explorers. Amadablam contains a variety of altitudes that makes this peak an adventurous one. Besides, for nature lovers, this place has got large frozen glaciers, hot springs and snow-capped peaks. Mountains of this kind are among the most valuable assets of the country. 

With no easy route to its summit, explorers try their best to find one. Among them the most active route to the access of Mount Amadablam is through the South-west ridge of the mountain. Most trekkers and mountaineers prefer to climb this peak from here. This mountain is listed among the top sites for trekking and mountaineering by the Nepal Tourism Board of Nepal. The rough rugged rocks and steep altitudes make this trip a challenging one which providers mountaineers an inspiration to complete their expedition. 

Mountaineers usually need to build 3 camps altogether during the expedition to climb the peak. The route from the base camp to the first camp is the most difficult and strenuous one. And the route above camp 1 is always technical and exposed. 

Expedition to Mount Amadablam will examine your trekking and climbing skills. And moreover conquering the summit will reward you with an enthusiasm of completing the expedition. If you are among the adventure lovers and challenge accepters, be ready to experience one of the heart-rending adventures you have ever faced.

What kind of insurance do I need?

We invest in insurance coverage for commercial liability and medical and disability insurance for our guides and Sherpas while participating on our programs. We cannot insure you for your personal needs, but we do expect you to be as fiscally responsible as we are. We strongly recommend that you insure yourself against potentially expensive difficulties that may arise. First, trip cancellation insurance may provide financial relief should you be forced to withdraw from the climb before it even happens. Next, make sure you have adequate traveler's medical and evacuation insurance for coverage should you have a problem during the trip. Medical care and evacuation from Everest can be expensive.

What else do I need to pay for?

You may spend some additional money on the trek buying drinks and snacks (food is provided for you). If you go down to Pheriche for rest and relaxation, you will need some additional money for this (estimate $35 per day).

What if I want to leave early?

No problem, we will organize you a porter and you can hike back to Lukla. The porter will carry your duffel bags. We will provide you a stipend to cover your lodges and meals on the hike out. Our staff at Lukla will meet you, arrange tickets, and assist you to make the flight to Kathmandu.

How do my duffel bags get back to Kathmandu?

We will hire porters to carry your duffels back to Lukla, where they will be flown to Kathmandu.

How much personal gear of mine will the Sherpas carry to C1, C2, C3, C4?

The Sherpas will carry a reasonable amount of your personal gear for you up to the camps. For example — your sleeping bag, down suit, extra high altitude gear, some food and snacks, etc. You should not have to carry a big load at any time on the trip — we want you to be able to move at a reasonable speed. You will need to carry with you the things you require during the day-clothes, snacks, water, camera, etc.

Why do I need a second sleeping bag?

We have a limited number of "extra" shared bags available for upper camps, but most climbers will appreciate having a dedicated bag at Base Camp and then another bag that is used above the Icefall. We don't want to carry bags up and down the Icefall.

What if I want to order more oxygen?

Additional oxygen is available delivered to the South Col at $1500 per cylinder (1800 liters). Most climbers do not require extra oxygen, we provide a generous supply (climb at 3 liters/minute above C3, sleep at 1 liter/min at Col).

How does a helicopter rescue work from Base Camp?

We can call for rescue with the B3 helicopter from Fishtail Helicopter. The cost is $10,000. This is the only helicopter that is able to safely land at Base Camp.

What do I do with my passport and plane ticket while I am climbing?

We suggest that you leave these items with our staff in Kathmandu, so it is easy for them to change your tickets or extend your visa for you while you are climbing.
