Trip Overview

Are you in a hunt for pristine trekking route in the formidable Everest Region? Then, the search is over!! We’re pleased to present our Ama Dablam Base Camp Trek. Considered as an alternative to now overcrowded Everest Base Trek, Ama Dablam Base Camp Trek is greatly admired by travel enthusiasts as it renders an opportunity to contemplate planet’s highest peak together with the awe-inspiring outlooks of elegant mountaintops such as Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Nuptse, and Pumori in close proximity. Besides that, this 11 days the long trek will get trekkers acquainted with hospitable Sherpa communities, scenic snowscapes and snow-clad mountaintops. Connect with the picturesque Khumbu Valley in a tranquil setting and experience its grandeur first-hand.


The trek initially follows the traditional trail to Everest Base Camp which leads to Namche Bazaar via Phakding. You’ll progress beyond lush woodland, vivid boulderstone and Mani walls, monasteries fluttering prayer flags, quaint settlements, and high suspension bridges during the walk through this stretch of the Himalayan Path. Assuming that you are lucky enough, gaze at the first glimpse of Mt. Everest positioned in-between Lhotse-Nuptse Ridge amid the steep ascent from Hillary Bridge to Namche. Thereafter, explore the Sherpa capital of Namche and have an insight into the Sherpa culture and traditions before branching off into a less-explored valley. You’ll be now constantly accompanied by lovely mountain Ama Dablam throughout the journey ahead. Subsequently, you’ll make your way to Phortse then continue to Pangboche. Pay a visit to Pangboche Monastery, well-renowned for famed for its purported yeti scalp and hand. After the daybreak, proceed further to your long-awaited destination, the outlandish land also known as Ama Dablam Base Camp. The scenic surroundings here will certainly warm your soul. At long last, passing by Namche Bazaar, you’ll retrace your steps to Lukla and fly back to Kathmandu.


Though Ama Dablam Base Camp Trek does not seem to be exciting at the first look, you’ll feel the bliss when you start this ecstatic escapade. Carry your backpack and set off to the journey of the lifetime!!!
