Ama Dablam 6,856m (22,494ft) is one of the most stunning peaks in the Khumbu region and one of the most beautiful mountains in the world. Popularly known as the ‘Matterhorn of the Himalaya’, the overwhelming ice-coated granite pyramid of Ama Dablam dominates the sky above the trekker’s trail to the Everest Base Camp. The mountain derives its name from the glacier lying on its Southwest face. The glacier looks like a jewel box hanging on the neck of the mountain, hence the name Ama Dablam, literally meaning ‘The Mother’s Jewel Box’. Interestingly, when a team led by Edmund Hillary scaled the mountain for the first time, Nepal’s King nearly imprisoned Hillary for climbing the sacred Ama Dablam without permission.
The Tibetan name for Mount Everest is “Chomolangma” which means “Saint Mother”. It has been in common use by Tibetans for centuries (BEFORE 1733 A.D). The height of Everest is 8848m. It was after the years and years of calculation and was announced by GREAT TRIGONOMETRIC SURVEY OF INDIA in 1856.
This peak was previously know as Peak XV to the western world. Then In 1865, Everest was given its official English name by Andrew wough. He was the British surveyor General of India. He recommended this name after his ancestor former chief, Sir George Everest. Andrew was send to Nepal by Sir George Everest for study of the peak.Only in the early 1960s, the Nepalese government gave Mount Everest the official name “sagarmatha”. There are 15 recognized route for climbing Mt. Everest.
Every Year in spring and autumn the Mt. Everest Expedition could be scheduled from its South Face that is from Nepal.
In autumn, expedition usually stars since last week of August and complete at around end of October. In this period the temperature toward the expedition area is changing from hot to cold. So, the climber has to face the critical situation for acclimatization for approaching to summit.
However in spring, the temperature to the Everest climbing area is getting from cold to hot which is more convenient for approaching to summit after sufficient acclimatization and practice in various camps. Start at the beginning of April and end at the beginning of June is the best recommended period for Everest Expedition in spring.
Thus, our recommendation for Everest summit dreamer is to choose Spring than Autumn. However, we are ready to organize this expedition in Spring, Autumn. Nepali Government authorities also allows climber to climb Everest in summer and winter too.
The seventh highest mountain in the world “Mt. Dhaulagiri” is 8167m in height. In Sanskrit Dhaula means white, beautiful and giri meaning mountain. t was discovered by the westerns in 1808. Unknowingly, it was counted as the highest mountain before the discovery of Mt. Kanchenjunga. It was first climbed on May 13, 1960 by a Swiss/Austrian/Nepali expedition.
The Dhaulagiri massif extends 120 km (70 mi) from the Kaligandaki River west to the Bheri. There are more than six different routes to climb Dhaulagiri. The normal climbing route is considered a reasonable climb with only short technical climbing sections and moderate avalanche danger. The South and West faces of Dhaulagiri both feature massive drops; each rises over 4000 meters from its base, and each has been the site of epic climbs. The tangled topography of twisting ridges, glaciers, and ice falls is crested by a stretch of thirty miles. Several pyramid-shaped peaks rise along the main crest. Four of the summits, numbered form east to west, rise above 25,000 feet.
