Ama Dablam Nepal’s Exquisite Mountain trek
Last month, I planned out with my friends on our first trek in the Ama Dablam Nepal’s exquisite mountain trek with Nepal’s well-known travel agency. It was my best trekking experience of my life where I got to witnessed the panoramic view of Ama Dablam(6,812m) and world tallest mount Everest(8.848 m).
Where Ama Dablam is actually lies?
Ama Dablam is known as one of the most attractive mountains in the world and tucked in the eastern part of Nepal with an outstanding height of about 6,812 meters above sea level. Ama Dablam is the only peak lies in the Khumbu (Everest) Valley and rising from the Dudh Kosi river valley. To climb this peak is a very difficult one so that the climber use the SW direction for climbing, from there it will be a little easier to hike.
The meaning of Ama Dablam is the ‘mother necklace’ that long ridges on both sides look like the arm of the mother and “Dablam “is the hanging glaciers indicates the necklace worn by the Sherpa women containing pictures of the gods.
Then you left our home and fly to Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal. On the airport, we got welcomed by our booked travel agency and then we all move to the hotel. It was a comfortable hotel with well flourished and maintained bathrooms. After so long traveled we got tired and take some rest.
Next morning, we were taken for the sightseeing of Kathmandu city including Boudhanath, Pashupatinath temple and Kathmandu Durbar square. Boudhanath is the largest Buddhist stupa in Nepal surrounded by several shops selling handicrafts and cultural items and I also bought handicraft. Pashupatinath temple is the holy place for Hindu dedicated to Lord Shiva and Kathmandu Durbar square is the cultural center where you explored the museum, temples and complex and then we returned to our respective hotels. I found Kathmandu really beautiful and the city is cultural drown and overwhelming.
Next morning we flew to Lukla(2,850m) which took approximately 30 minutes to reach and from the fight we have got amazing views of the Himalayas. After some time we started our trek from Lukla to Phakding(2,652m) and we hardly walked 2 to 3 hours where the trekking trail is mostly downhill and easier for the beginners like us. Heading over the Dudh Kosi River we reached the beautiful town Phakding. The village is surrounded by the pristine nature and rushling Dudh River that really gave a peaceful ambiance. One night at Phakding lodge
Phakding lies in the Dudh Kosi river valley and is a small alluring village in the Khumbu region of Nepal. The village is a northern part from the Lukla with an elevation of about 2,610m and it is one of the world heritage site declared by the UNESCO in 1979.
Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3,445m)
Trek began at morning along the Dudh Kosi River and the trekking not so steep than the previous one and we were smoothly heading uphill to Namche Bazaar (3,445m) and the trail offered a scenic view and immaculate nature. Then you finally reached

The village is tucked in between the two ridges of the huge peaks of Khumbu. The village is dotted with the shops, several lodges and offers magnificent views of the neighboring mountain ranges.
We had spent 2 nights in the Namche Bazaar for acclimatization to climb upwards. We were taken to Khunde hospital established by Edmund Hillary for acclimatization and the one-hour steep walk up to Syangboche (3,800m) then finally we explored the Sagarmatha National Park’s Headquarter in the hillock of the town and also accompanied by the museum and we got much information from there

Now, we were trekking to a small town, Deboche and trekking trail is sometimes up and downhill like a rollercoaster and we crossed the Dudh River. The trail opens with stunning views of mountains peaks including Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Nuptse, and Everest. After 2 hours of hiking, we reached one of the famous monasteries of Tengboche monastery and take a look at the monastery and surrounding places. Then we moved towards our destination Deboche where a trail is a downhill and after 20 minutes of walking we reached the town and stay overnight at the town with warming hospitality.

The people of Pheriche primarily depends upon farming, keeping yaks and during summer season people got employed because during summer trekkers and climber visit the place for acclimatization and village got many lodges.
Pangboche to Ama Dablam Base Camp (4,570m)
Next day we trek back to Pangboche and crossed Dudh Kosi River and climbed up to the Ama Dablam Base camp and we were very much energized when we get the glance of the base camp. Then you finally reached after trudging uphill and we stay that night at base camp.
As we reached Ama Dablam base camp after so many days of trekking we can see the field filled with multi-colored tents of other trekkers and we also build our tents in the base of the Ama Dablam. I can see the giant Ama Dablam facing right in front of me and the chilled wind was blowing that gave a feeling of being in the arms of the Ama Dablam.
Overnight at Ama Dablam base camp and we enjoyed our night where our guide managed for burn fire where we also interacted with other trekkers who were going to descend Ama Dablam next morning and I was also wanted to climb and witness the height of the Ama Dablam but cannot because of lesser time but I made myself promised next time I will also going to climb it.
So, next morning we trek back to the previous route including Tengboche, Namche Bazaar and finally reached Lukla and stay overnight at Lukla hotel.

We had a morning flight from Lukla to Kathmandu and after reaching Kathmandu we were transferred to the Kathmandu hotel. The evening we went for shopping in Kathmandu city and bought lots of things, handicrafts etc and enjoyed ‘Thakali cuisine’ which was the famous cuisine in Nepal.
