The ascent of Ama Dablam offers us to contemplate Everest and the Khumbu region at an altitude of about 6800 meters. Located not far from the highest peak in the world, this mountain is known as one of the greatest Himalayan technical alpine objective. Less crowded then his neighbors such as the Island Peak, this will give you the opportunity to apply your alpine techniques in a really aesthetic and aerial environment.
From the summit, or all the way up through the summit ridge, your eyes will admire the East of Nepal and the beautiful Honku valley. You will walk on a really aerial crest that will gives you the impression of flying above the Himalaya. This ascent is the outcome of a magnificent trek towards Everest basecamp and the Gokyo lake region.
Take up this challenge with certified mountain guides and a devoted local team!
HIGH ALTITUDE MOUNTAIN CLEANERS
In 2020, Attitude Montagne will be the official sponsor of the cleaning expedition that will take place on this mountain. A project that count more than 44 days, whose 18 days will be spend around 6000m to take down all the trash, take off the old ropes and installing new anchors. A real technical challenge that, hopefully, will change the way the industry and every alpinist climb mountains. For details visit our website.
The nights in Katmandu will be in 3 or 4 stars hotel depending on availability. We are going to be in lodges for the approach trek. From basecamp we are going to be sleeping in tents for the rest of the expedition.
We organize every aspect of the basecamp, tents, kitchen equipment, tables, chairs, communication and everything else! You only have to install your personal equipment. The only equipment you have to provide for yourself is a sleeping bag and sleeping pad (for altitude camps) because our local agency provides it for the basecamp along all you need to sleep well.
At basecamp, we have a system to recharge electronic device. We also have lights and a heater to warm up the kitchen tent!
From Katmandu, we gonna take a flight to Lukla which is the start of many Himalayan expeditions. For the trek to basecamp, we will have the service of local carrier and yaks for our equipment. We only carry a daypack to keep our strength for the ascent. You are responsible of your transport to Katmandu. Since we have a lot of equipment to carry from Quebec, we are going to separate it amongst the participants and guides before leaving.
During our stay in Katmandu, we are going to eat in restaurants (not included). On the mountains, we will eat the very good meals that our cook makes for us. On the ascent, we will start to eat lyophilized food from ‘Col Camp’. You only have have to think about your own personnel favorite food : chocolate, candy, energy bar, powergel, etc.
We organize every group equipment; ropes, rock and snow protections, first aid kit, communications and other. You only have to provide personnel climbing equipment. A list will be provided.
