Ama Dablam SW Ridge (Normal Route)
6,812m / 22,402 ft
Ama Dablam, the "Jewel of the Khumbu", is nestled in the clouds above the Thyangboche monastery, in the heart of the Sherpa homeland.
We ascend the coveted SW ridge which is truly one of the most aesthetic climbing routes in the Himalaya. An exposed rock ridge dotted with towers and interesting climbing leads from the Camp I to the summit ice fields and top camp site. On the final day of the climb, the route follows steep snow and ice slopes, accentuated by outrageous exposure, directly to the summit where the Everest group is unveiled and stunning views abound.
A clear stream meanders the grassy meadows at the base camp; the striking massif of Ama Dablam looms overhead and across the valley Mt Taweche leers an oblique profile.
At night, one can see from the camps on the mountain the lights from the villages in the Khumbu that illustrate the progress from butter lamps to hydroelectricity in recent times. Our acclimatization programme is initiated in these lower villages giving us the opportunity of spending time in the homes of our Sherpa friends and an insight into the culture of these great people.
This expedition is ideal for technically orientated climbers but is never extreme and definitely qualifies as a "must do" for any committed alpinist.

• One of the most aesthetic climbing routes on the planet!
