Ama Dablam Peak Expedition is a bit challenging climbing than other peaks. Ama Dablam is a mountain in the Himalaya range of eastern part of Khumbu reion in Nepal. The main peak which height is 6,812 meters (22,349 ft), the lower western part of peak is 6,170 meters (20,243 ft). Ama Dablam means "Mother's necklace"; the long ridges on each side like the arms of a mother (ama) protecting her child, and the hanging glacier thought of as the Dablam, the traditional double-pendant containing pictures of the gods, worn by Sherpa women. For several days, Ama Dablam dominates the eastern sky for anyone trekking to Mount Everest Base Camp.

Ama Dablam is the third most popular Himalayan peak for permitted expeditions. The most popular route by far is the Southwest Ridge (right skyline in the photo). Climbers typically set up three camps along the ridge
