Trip Overview

Ama Dablam Base Camp is one of the most fascinating short trek in Everest region of Nepal. If you have about 12 days in total in Nepal and like to explore the Buddhist monasteries, Sherpa culture with unparalleled views of some of the world’s highest peaks including awesome flanks of Ama Dablam this is the trek for you.

This is a fine excursion from Pangboche, offering those with time a little visited option. The added height allows many more peaks to be seen. The trail departs from lower Pangboche and descends to cross the Imja Khola. The steep path has suffered badly from erosion as far as the yak meadows on the plateau of Cholungche. Further on the trail zigzags up to a prayer flag cluster – the chorten col. Dingboche can be seen below the massive Lhotse, Nuptse wall, with Pumori further northwards, The trail turns briefly northeast before climbing past the disused Mingbo airstrip, It continues steadily up to the base of the east ridge of Ama Dablam to Ama Dablam Base Camp (4600 m)

High Altitude Sickness:

Often times treks that ascends beyond 3500 m would require more days for acclimatization to ensure that trekkers do not suffer from high altitude sickness. The thinner air affects you in many ways and if you go high too fast there is a high chance to get effect.

Insurances of Guide and Porters

We do our Trekking insurance for the duration of 10 or 15 years from reputed insurance company in Kathmandu, Nepal which covers our insurance for the duration of our trek as well. On the other hand we (Hike Nepal) are member of TAAN (Trekking Agent Association of Nepal) TAAN takes fully responsible for the staffs of its members while we are on the trek. You are highly recommended to be insured for this trek from your country.

We, Nepalese eat a meal of Dhal Bhaat (rice with lentil soup, curry and  pickles) twice daily. The ingredients vary according to local and seasonal availability, but vegetarian options are the norm. Another cheap popular local dish is the ubiquitous instant noodle soup, enhanced by local vegetables, or meat or egg, depending on availability.. Eating Nepali-style will provide you with a truly local experience, guarantees fresh ingredients everywhere, and rules out disappointments.

Also, in all lodges tourists will be served their meals in the lodge dining room before the Nepali staff gets their meals in the kitchen or another place where guides and porters relax. And staff members’ quarters are separate from the tourist rooms. This seemingly two-class system may be a difficult concept for some tourists, but it can also be seen as “time off” for the staff members. Nepalese eat mostly with their hands, a custom that is considered offensive by some tourists another reason why the staff members may actually prefer to eat separately.
