Duration: 29 days
Climb to Ama Dablam (6812m) - Mt. Everest region, Himalayas, Nepal
Meeting date: 28th October 2018, Kathmandu
Ama Dablam is one of the most stunning peaks in the Himalayas and one of the most impressive mountains in the world. Situated in the heart of Everest’s Khumbu region, it lies directly above the Thyangboche Monastery on the well-worn path to Everest Base Camp and is admired by thousands of trekkers and climbers every year. This expedition offers a superb, technical climbing experience in a magnificent setting, with numerous cultural and scenic diversions. Our route will take us along the original line of ascent, the South West Ridge.
It provides a fine and varied climb, sustaining a reasonable level of difficulty, with good camp platforms at strategic points. The climb provides interesting rock, snow and ice sections, and although it is of a fairly technical nature, in normal conditions it is never very difficult. Apart from one short section, the climb is very safe, overall. The route description is included in the detailed itinerary.
The expedition will be professionally led by a team of competent mountaineers who have enough experience to climb one of the world’s most sought-after mountains, without undue risk. This approach ensures that team members are suitably experienced, reasonably self-sufficient and capable and willing to move between camps, unsupervised. You will still have a high level of support, starting with strong, confident leadership; this will maximize your chances of success without undermining the quality of your accomplishments. If you have the necessary experience and wish to fully participate as a team member in an expertly led expedition to one of the world’s most impressive mountains, this could be the trip for you!

I enjoyed EST expeditions and made very good friends, who I have been in regular contact with ever since. I experienced and learned a lot during the two expeditions I went to with Extreme Summit Team. I appreciate the way in which Dragan does his job. His knowledge of the secrets of the Himalayas inspires confidence in each member of the expedition and my opinion is that he is capable to lead to the top of the mountain even people with modest mountaineering skills. I am always pleased to recommend EST team to all my colleagues who would like to experience the challenges of high mountain climbing
“I came to know Dragan and his extremist team somewhat too late. I had climbed and walked across the mountains for over thirty years (it is not just the air but the spirit of mountains), but never much farther than Mt. Durmitor and Mt. Prokletije and never higher than Mt. Olympus. For a long time I thought I could not go farther or higher until I met Dragan who is familiar with paths that lead far and beyond and high up in the air and joined him when I was sixty something, for the time being just to the Himalayas, the Andes, Mt. Atlas. Sounds incomplete, doesn’t it?
I was fortunate enough to be a member of three expeditions organized by EST: Island peak, Aconcagua and Cho Oyu. They are true professionals, good and likeable people who not only provide technical assistance but also offer spiritual development. It was an honor to meet Dragan, Miloš and Nina who made gravity have less of an effect on me.
