Ama Dablam Expedition
Mount Ama Dablam is a beautiful mountain which is located to the south of Mount Everest and Mount Lohtse in the khumbu region. Ama Dablam is a pyramid of ice with vertical walls and sharp edges. It is most popularly known as the Matterhorn of the Himalaya. Its southwest face has glacier which looks like a jewel box hanging on the neck of the mountain. The mountain was first scaled by Edmund Hillary. This mountain is considered to be the most technical and difficult to climb.
To reach the first camp, the climbers need to pass through the toughest and the difficult passing through the ridges. After passing through the ridge, they should then turn to the north climbing up through the rocky ground and through the boulder.
