Trip Introduction

Mt. Amadablam, located at the heart of world’s highest mountain range in Khumbu region stands at 6812m. It is one of the most beautiful mountains on earth known for technical climbing and challenge for mountaineers. The most famous route to climb this mountain is Southwest Ridge, as it was climbed by the first ascent team led by Barry Bishop in 1961.

Firstly, we will reach at the Base Camp and will take couple of rest days to allow our bodies to acclimatize by climbing slowly. Three camps are set after Base Camp to approach to the top of Amadablam to spend the night. You will enjoy every single day when we move through camps I, II and III with spectacular panorama views of Khumbu Himalaya including world’s highest Mountain Everest that stands at 8848m.

Utmost Adventure will provide qualified and experienced climbing guide for your expedition with skillful altitude Sherpa climbers. They will guide you at every step on your way to top of mountain. We assure your safety and help you to realize your dreams of ascending Mt. Amadablam. The mountain is steep rock and hard compact ice so that we suggest you at least to have good skills on rock and ice climbing with technical competency.
