Ama Dablam, regarded as the ‘third most popular Himalayan peak for permitted expeditions’, could also be labeled as one of the most beautiful Himalayan peaks, located in the eastern Nepal.

Ama Dablam literally means ‘mother’s necklace’ in Sherpa language. Ama Dablam is 6856m in height and was first climbed in 1961 by an expedition led by Sir Edmund Hillary. The most popular route for reaching the top is via southwest ridge although north ridge is also used. The base of the peak is at 5800 meters a perfect spot for acclimatization. Ama Dablam is considered to be a technically difficult and challenging peak for all mountaineers as it involves ice and snow climbing and glacier walking.

Ama Dablam is combined with the climb of Island Peak or Imja Tse. Island Peak looks like an island on a sea of ice and was first climbed in the same year as Everest and by the same team of Hillary and Sherpa as part of warm-up and acclimatization. Since then Island Peak has been a favorite of those who attempt to climb Everest or for anyone willing to climb a mountain.

Island Peak has an impressive, highly glaciated West Face which rises from the Lhotse Glacier. In fact, the mountain extends from the South Ridge of Lhotse Shar and is separated only by a small col. Steep slopes, rocky climb and ice walking are essential features of climbing an Island peak but once on the top you will be rewarded with stunning views of the surrounding mountains including Nuptse, Lhotse, Cho Polu, Makalu, Ama Dablam and Baruntse.
