    Mount Amadablam Expedition (6812m) - 31 days

    After leading several Himalayan expeditions myself, including the first American ascent of Annapurna I, I can attest to Chandra’s outstanding qualities as leader and organizer. He is an especially good guide for student groups. I first met Chandra when my daughter attended 8th grade at the Lincoln School in Kathmandu, Nepal, and he was the guide selected by the expat community to lead the 8th  grade students on a week-long “Explore Nepal” trek.  The students and parents really appreciated Chandran’s thoughtful planning and leadership.
    In the last twenty years, I've enjoyed a dozen diverse adventures in Nepal with Chandra.  He always provides great food, gear, and guides as well as personalized itineraries and attention for individual travelers and small and large groups. His company is a good choice for any individual, school, group or family that wants to enjoy their own trek with a personal itinerary at a relatively low cost.
    If you might like a Nepal adventure customized to your interests, abilities, and schedule,  you can learn more at at  Himalayan Icefall Trekking or contact Chandra at himtrekzone@gmail.com.

    Mount Ama Dablam (6812) is a beautiful mountain, which lies in the eastern part of himalayan range in Nepal. The secret behind the Name Ama Dablam is, it refers to "Mother's necklace" in Sherpa Language and the mountain itself looks like a Mother protecting her child when observed from a distance. Looking back in to the History of Mount Amadablam expedition, it was first climbed on 13th March 1961 by Mike Gil (NZ), Barry Bishop (USA), Mike Ward (UK), and Wally Romanes (NZ) from the south west ridge and till now most of the climbers, ascends through the south west.
    Mount Amadablam expedition is one of the most beautiful and renowned, top three peak climbing in Nepal. While on the Expedition, from the Amadablam base camp to the peak, climbers usually set three camps, camp 1, camp 2 and camp 3. Generally up to camp one is normal trail, whereas from camp 2 to 3 and to the peak of Amadablam it is comparatively challenging ascends due to its narrow ridge. Since it is a challenging expedition, one wishing to conquer the Mount Amadablam must have the previous climbing experience with the necessary mountaineering trainings. Once you get in to the top of the Mount Amadablam you can enjoy the stunning views of Mount Everest (8848m), Mount Makalu (8463m), Lhotse (8516m) and many other several peaks and mountains. The best season for Amadablam adventure is during spring and autumn.
