Ama Dablam Base Camp

This is a trek in the Everest region staying in comfortable lodges with visits to Sherpa villages and Buddhist monasteries. We have included two nights in Pangboche village from where you can walk to Ama Dablam Base Camp.

The trek starts with an exciting flight in a Twin Otter plane to the mountain airstrip at Lukla, from here we follow in the footsteps of famous mountaineers along the trail to Namche Bazaar. We are now in Buddhist Sherpa country where you will see colourful prayer flags, mani walls and monasteries along the way.

Our Ama Dablam Base Camp trek takes you to some of the prettiest Sherpa villages and to Namche Bazaar, the colourful and vibrant heart of Sherpa country. You have the opportunity to visit the main monasteries of the Khumbu region at Tengboche and Thame.

The trail between lodges takes you through beautiful Nepalese villages with spectacular views of the Khumbu and Everest region. This trek is a moderate walk designed for the first time trekker which follows a section of the classic Everest Base Camp trail and then heads into the quieter Thame valley. The mountain scenery is stunning with a range of the famous peaks visible including Everest, Ama Dablam and Thamserku.
