Renowned as the ‘Matterhorn of the Himalaya’, the amazing, ice-coated granite pyramid, Amadablam, dominates the sky above the trail to the Everest Base Camp at a staggering height of 6856 meters.

You then trek towards the Khumbu glacier and descend to Dingboche and move towards Chukung valley and Imja Tse base camp. You attempt to summit the giant after a night at the camp and enjoy the mesmerizing beauty of the mountains. Amadablam consists of 3 campsites before reaching the summit. You move further up to Camp 1 (5700m) along fixed trails and acclimatize and then return to base camp again. The camps above Camp 1 is difficult and rigid trails are followed. Camp 2 and Camp 3 are mostly ice that makes it difficult and slippery. The climb from Camp 3 to the summit is less technical and after two weeks you summit the peak and move back to the base camp.
