Ama Dablam: Climb the Mother’s Necklace with Alpenglow Expeditions

Climbers on the summit of Ama Dablam.

Revered as one of the most beautiful mountains in the world, Ama Dablam (‘mother’s necklace’ in Nepali) stands as a testament to nature’s grandeur. Its massive relief and extreme vertical scale has made it one of the Himalayas’ most iconic peaks, and our Ama Dablam Rapid Ascent program has made this elusive summit possible in a blistering 14-day roundtrip, half the time of a normal expedition.

Our expeditions offer an authentic and immersive experience, led by expert guides who prioritize risk mitigation, expertise, and respect for the mountain environment. Whether you’re an 8,000-meter climber looking to try a more demanding peak, or an intermediate-advanced climber looking to break into high-altitude technical climbing, Ama Dablam is the pinnacle of Alpenglow’s mission and vision, where every piece of the puzzle comes together for a multi-disciplinary ascent.

Led by our expert guides, the Ama Dablam Rapid Ascent expedition is a chance to tap into their wealth of knowledge on the biggest mountain stage in the world. With Everest, Lhotse, and Makalu as your backdrop, this expedition offers the opportunity to yourself in the raw beauty and tranquility of the Himalayas. From the vibrant culture of the Sherpa villages to the panoramic vistas that stretch as far as the eye can see, every moment is an opportunity for discovery, reflection, and growth. While this is a beautiful mountain, it is also no easy feat: Ama is incredibly steep, and will require precise and intentional climbing to reach the summit.
