Ama Dablam is one of the most technical mountains on the Himalayas list in mountaineering. The route to climb mount Ama Dablam is from its southwest ridge. Most mountaineering beginners start their climbing through this Mount. Ama Dablam is 6,812m, a small snowcapped peak of 6,812m lying in the Everest region. This South - West ridge is the easy and most popular route to ascend Mt. Ama Dablam. This mountain is considered the most technical & difficult to climb. The mountaineers cross through challenging ice rocks and steep snow climbing, one of their climbing routes.
To reach the first camp from base camp, the climbers pass the toughest passing through the saddle ridges and turn to the north to ascend the rocky ground and the boulder. We reach Camp one. From Camp I - we have to cross the rocky bowl and should climb the ridge via the fixed lines to Camp II. After crossing over severe rocks, you reach camp II. The climbing route from Camp II is mostly with steep mixed alleyways of rock, ice, and snow. We climb to the snow ground and pass through steep snow and ice tunnel. Finally, along the snow ridges, we reach camping III. From here to the summit, the path is a steep climb on snow and ice to the right of the hanging glacier. From the Top of mount Ama Dablam, we can envision very charming sceneries of Mount Everest 8848m, Lhotse 8516m, Island peak, Makalu 8463m, Khumbu Himalayan, and the rest of the snowcapped surrounded mountains.
