Nepal is the home of the highest mountains on earth including the hundreds of stunning snowy peaks. The Himalayan range from the east to the west offers the mind-blowing vistas of beautiful snow-capped mountains. Among these peaks, Mt. Ama Dablam is one of the most spectacular and iconic mountains in Nepal as well as in the world. Ama Dablam lies in the heart of Khumbu valley and is a major attraction of the Everest Region. It has an altitude of 6,812m / 22,349ft. At the popular Everest Base Camp trekking trail, Ama Dablam is one of the most visible and dominating mountains as you can see more than dozens of different angles of this mountain.
Ama Dablam is often considered the dream mountain of all the alpinists from the world. The different shapes and structures of this mountain are unbelievable. Besides this, Ama Dabla is considered the most technical mountain to climb, since the mountain has steep faces of snow and the rock that one must negotiate during the ascent of the south face. The unique and stylish contours dominate all the high mountains in the Everest region.
Ama Dablam means “ Mother’s necklace” Ama means mother in Nepali and long ridges on both sides represent her arms. The popular hanging glacier below the summit represents the pendant of traditional Tibetan jewelry, the so-called Dablam. This all started when Tibetians migrated into Nepal 400 years ago. The necklaces are usually worn by Sherpa women. These Buddhist people decided Ama Dablam as one of their major holiest mountains in the Khumbu region. After that, the Sherpa people also get the privilege of being the most powerful and strongest from the mountains.
The unique silhouette dominates the entire Khumbu region, notwithstanding the presence of the highest mountain on earth, Mt. Everest, and their contribution to culture and mountaineering is the most popular mountaineering community in the world.
