Trip Introduction: Ama Dablam Base Camp and Everest Base Camp Trek

Ama Dablam and Everest are two popular trekking destinations located in the Everest Region of Nepal. Both of these base camps offer stunning views of the Himalayas and provide an opportunity for adventure seekers to experience the unique culture of the Sherpa people.

Ama Dablam is located in the Sagarmatha National Park, about 12 kilometers from the famous town of Namche Bazaar. It takes about 10 days to reach the base camp, and the trek involves crossing high mountain passes, crossing suspension bridges, and passing through small Sherpa villages. The trek to the base camp of Ama Dablam is considered challenging due to the altitude, steep inclines, and the rugged terrain. However, the views of the towering Ama Dablam peak, which rises to an elevation of 6,812 meters, make the effort worthwhile.

Everest Base Camp is the starting point for climbers attempting to summit the world's highest peak, Mount Everest. The base camp is located at an altitude of 5,364 meters, and it takes about 12 days to reach the base camp from Lukla. The trekking trail of Everest is considered one of the most popular and challenging high-altitude treks in the world, and it takes you through scenic landscapes, Sherpa villages, and ancient monasteries. The route to Everest Base Camp is well-trodden, and you will have the opportunity to meet other trekkers from around the world who are also on this epic adventure.

This package of Ama Dablam and Everest offer incredible views of the Himalayas and an opportunity to learn about the culture and kindness of the Sherpas. If you are an adventure seeker and are looking for an unforgettable trekking experience, then this trekking package combined of Ama Dablam and Everest should be at the top of your list.

Where does the Ama Dablam and Everest Base Camp trip start at? What to expect in this trip?

The trekking trails of Ama Dablam and Everest are two separate treks in Nepal that start and end at different locations.

Ama Dablam and Everest Camp Trek starts from the small town of Lukla, which is accessible by a short domestic flight from Kathmandu. From Lukla, trekkers will make their way through the beautiful Sherpa villages of Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Pangboche, and Dingboche, before finally reaching the base camp of Ama Dablam and Everest. The trek offers stunning views of the Himalayas and a chance to experience the unique culture and traditions of the Sherpa people. This trek offers breathtaking views of some of the world's highest peaks, including Lhotse, Nuptse, and of course, Everest.

In this package, trekkers should expect to walk for 4-7 hours a day, with some steep and challenging sections. The altitude can also be a factor, with both treks reaching heights above 4,500 meters. Therefore, it is important to be in good physical condition and to allow time for acclimatization along the way.

Trekkers can expect to stay in tea houses or lodges along the route, which provide basic accommodation and meals. The lodges usually have communal dining areas and offer a chance to socialize with other trekkers. The best time to do these treks is during the spring (March to May) or the autumn (September to November), when the weather is dry and clear, and the views are at their best.

NOTE: We can provide electric blankets and attached bathrooms for an additional cost.

Is Ama Dablam Base Camp and Everest base camp Trek trip right for you?

Whether this trek is right for you or not depends on several factors, such as your fitness level, experience with high-altitude trekking, and personal preferences.

Firstly, this trek involves walking for several hours a day, with some steep and challenging sections, often at high altitudes. Therefore, it is important to be in the good physical condition and to have some prior trekking experience.

Secondly, the altitude can be a factor, as both base camps are located above 5,000 meters. Altitude sickness can affect anyone, regardless of fitness level, so it is important to take the necessary precautions to acclimatize properly along the way. Adequate acclimatization is crucial to ensure a safe and enjoyable trek.

Lastly, it's important to consider your personal preferences. This trek can be physically demanding and requires a certain level of commitment. If you enjoy being outdoors, have an adventurous spirit, and are up for a challenge, then this trek may be right for you.

In summary, if you are physically fit, have some prior trekking experience, and are up for a challenge, Ama Dablam and Everest Trekking could be a rewarding experience. However, it is always recommended to consult with the team of Trekking Planner Nepal or a medical professional to determine if this trek is suitable for you.

  • Acclimatization: Acclimatization is an essential part of the trek, especially when trekking at high altitude. There are several scheduled acclimatization days built into the itinerary. These rest days are intended to help trekkers adjust to the high altitude gradually. On these days, trekkers can engage in light physical activity, such as short hikes or walks, to aid acclimatization. It is crucial to listen to your body and not to push yourself too hard during acclimatization stops.
  • Communication: Communication facilities can be challenging to access during the trek, as it is a remote area with limited network coverage.

Some trekking agencies also provide satellite phones or walkie-talkies for their clients to use during the trek.

Altitude Mountain Sickness (AMS).

Altitude Mountain Sickness, also known as Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), is a disorder that can affect persons who go to high elevations in a short period of time. It is caused by a shortage of oxygen in the air and can produce headaches, nausea, dizziness, and exhaustion.

AMS often develops over 2,500 meters (8,000 feet) in elevation and can affect anybody, regardless of age or fitness level. AMS can range in intensity from minor symptoms that can be addressed with rest and medicine to more severe types that require rapid medical intervention.

To avoid AMS, acclimate properly by rising slowly and giving your body time to adjust to the high altitude. This may be accomplished by taking frequent rest days, staying hydrated, and avoiding alcohol and smoking.

If you encounter AMS symptoms, you should immediately descend to a lower altitude and seek medical assistance if your symptoms worsen. In some cases you are suggested to take medical precaution from doctors before embarking the trek.

It is essential to treat AMS seriously and be aware of the signs and symptoms so that you can take necessary measures to keep it from worsening.

Washing and Toilet facilities on the trekking trail of ama dablam and everest

The washroom and bathroom facilities differs depending on the lodging choices you select. Trekking Planner Nepal mention you some of the tips you might see in the trek.

  • Washing facilities: Most teahouses and lodges along the trail will provide basic washing facilities, such as a bucket of hot water and a basin for washing your face and hands. Some motels may charge a fee for hot showers, however they are not always consistent and may be limited by fuel supply. It is important to carry your own amenities, such as soap, shampoo, and a towel, as these are not often given by the lodging.
  • Toilets facilities: Most teahouses and hotels along the trail will offer basic squat toilets with running water for flushing. Toilets in certain regions may be shared by several hikers and may not be as well-maintained as you are accustomed to.

It is important to pack your own toilet paper because accommodations do not usually offer it.

It is essential to note that the availability and quality of washing and toilet facilities might decrease as altitude increases. To avoid the spread of sickness, it is important to be prepared for basic amenities and to practice proper hygiene. It is also advisable to have hand sanitizer and wet wipes to keep oneself clean and fresh.

NOTE: Private attached bathrooms are available at an extra cost that must be booked in advance, but in places like Lobuche and Gorakhsep, they won't be available.

Is Travel Insurance Required For Trekking to Ama Dablam and Everest

For the Ama Dablam and Everest Base Camp trip, Trekking Planner Nepal strongly advise travel insurance. This form of insurance can cover a wide range of events that may arise during your journey, such as medical crises, trip cancellations or delays, and lost or stolen luggage.

  • Medical coverage: Ensure that your insurance policy covers medical emergencies, including evacuation to a lower altitude or return to your home country if necessary. Because high altitude hiking is physically demanding and increases the danger of illness or injury, it is essential to have coverage that will protect you in the event of an emergency.

  • Vacation cancellation or interruption: If you need to cancel or shorten your vacation due to unforeseen circumstances like illness, accident, or other crises, travel insurance can help protect you financially. Check to see if your policy covers travel cancellation or interruption due to these sorts of circumstances.
  • Lost or stolen baggage: Because trekking in remote places increases the possibility of lost or stolen baggage, be sure your travel insurance covers these scenarios. If your luggage is lost or stolen during your vacation, this can help protect you financially.

Trekking at high altitude might be considered a high-risk activity, so be sure your policy provides coverage for adventure sports. Check the insurance language carefully to confirm that it covers high-altitude hiking and any other activities you want to conduct during your vacation.

When selecting travel insurance, it is important to compare plans from several providers and carefully study the policy wording to verify that it provides enough coverage for your needs. Before you buy, be sure you understand the policy's terms and conditions, including any exclusions or limits.

Local Culture and Religion around the trekking trail

Ama Dablam and Everest Base Camp both share the same trekking trail except the 7th day trail to the base camp of Ama Dablam. The trails are home to a rich and diversified local culture and religion, created by the traditions and beliefs of the Sherpa people who live in the region. Sherpas are an ethnic group that has resided in the Himalayas for ages. They are well-known for their climbing skills and have assisted climbers in reaching the summits of some of the world's highest peaks, including Mount Everest.

The Sherpa people practice Tibetan Buddhism, which includes aspects of animism and shamanism. They believe in various gods and spirits that inhabit the natural world and execute complex rites and rituals to honor and placate these deities.Many Buddhist temples and stupas, religious structures used for meditation and prayer, can be found along the trekking trail. These are significant cultural and religious sites that attract residents as well as tourists.

As a tourist to the area, it is essential to respect the local culture and religion. This includes dressing modestly, taking off your shoes before visiting religious locations, and obtaining permission before photographing people or holy artefacts.

Interacting with Sherpa people and partaking in traditional events and festivals may also provide you with the opportunity to learn more about the local culture and religion.

    Client Reviews
    • rating star

      Local knowledge is hard to beat.

      We had a fantastic adventure from start to finish. Everything was smooth and well organised from booking to arrival and our welcome to Kathmandu. We had a thoughtfully arranged day seeing the sights before our trek began.
      We met our fantastic sherpa Gyeljen who made sure everything was organised for or arrival and made every day in the mountains a breeze. He even was kind enough to carry my day bag on the steeper sections and was always ready with a motivational word, a friendly smile and a story. He was very intuitive and used all of his many years of guiding to shape our trip, getting us the best tea houses, altering lengths of days to accommodate our needs and giving us tips about things like showers, drinks and altitude acclimatisation. He was incredibly knowledgeable and obviously very popular with the local people. We are very glad we had him to guide us on this once in a lifetime experience
