Aamadablam Expedition ( 6812 m) in Nepal
Ama DablAamadablam expedition, Peak climbing in Nepal, Climbing & expedition in Nepal Himalayaam is known as one of the most impressive mountains in the world, not for it’s altitude, but for it’s beauty, aesthetics and the pure exposure encountered high on it’s flanks. Most parties attempt the SW ridge, climbing expedition style, fixing ropes, ferrying loads, and acclimatizing slowly. The mountain has gained in popularity over the past 8 years. It’s common to encounter high altitude Everest veterans having problems with the technical difficulties encountered on the crux pitches of this climb. The climb feels like a 5.8 – 5.9 depending on conditions. However, I would like to recommend allowing 5 weeks for this expedition, taking into consideration bad weather, sickness, and multiple summit attempts.
Information about how the peak gets its name: Mother and her Necklace , Mother’s Charm Box , Mother’s Jewel Box “”Ama” means mother, grandmother or even world. “Dablam” means charm box, and is a special pendant worn by elder Sherpa women that holds precious items.
