Amadablam Base Camp Trek - Essential Information

Amadablam base camp trek begins with a short and scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. After arrival at Lukla, our trekking journey begins passing through the beautiful forest of rhododendron and Sherpa village up to Namche Bazaar via Phakding. We ascend through the trekking trail of the Everest region passing through some established and colored villages of Sherpa people.

At Namche Bazaar on the route, we take one day enough acclimatization at a lower altitude, then head for the Pangboche for the surreal view of the Himalayas. The next day early morning we ascend from Pangboche to the Ama Dablam base camp (4,500m), away from the popular trail to savor the Himalayas.

From the base camp of Mt. Ama Dablam, we can enjoy spectacular 360-degree mountain panoramic views of distinctive peaks and high above Mt. Lhotse-Nuptse massif.

Returning from the vicinity of the Himalayas, we shall explore the authentic lifestyle of the Sherpa community of Khumjung village and explore the rich cultural heritage, and lifestyles of Khumbu people at Namche Bazaar.  After the end at Lukla, we back to the capital city Kathmandu and enjoy the world heritage sites.

We commence this as a fascinating trek and enjoy the exploration of some of the best natural sightseeing and cultural touch of Nepal.

So, the guide or leader will provide you with the best alternative during your trek.  The price of the trip will be according to the standard of hotel, group size, duration, and date of travel for the tailor-made program.

Regarding flight in the mountain region

Mostly twin otter is the most common means of air transportation in the Nepalese sky and during flight in the Himalayan region of Nepal, the flight schedule is canceled and change from time to time due to poor visibility, weather condition, and many other technical problems.

In such a case, we would charter a helicopter for our guests regarding the schedule of their international flight and for the different problems that arise in the trek. The charter cost should be paid at the head office of Tourist link Trek at Thamel and later on, you can claim with your travel insurance.

As per Nepal Civil aviation rules, the helicopter will fly, if the visibility is up to 1500m and visibility should be 5000m for flying Twin Otter in Nepalese sky.

    Reviews on Amadablam Base Camp Trek

    Rated 5 out of 5

    My third trek with Life Himalaya! And certainly not the last
    I consider Shiba (the owner) a friend, a good businessman and overall kind person.
    You will realise one trek in Nepal is never enough and Shiba has been there on each of my visits to ensure my experience has been smooth and enjoyable.
    This time i finally visited the Khumbu region and made my way via the traditional Sherpa villages of Khumjung and Phortse to the spectacular Ama Dablam base camp.
    I prefer to avoid the crowds, so this route was ideal for me as analternative to the busier ebc route.
    I must also mention my guide this time; Basander (sorry if i got the spelling wrong). We clicked very well and i think shared a similar sense of humour. It would be great to trek with him again at some point.
    Anyway youve read mine and others reviews. Do yourself a favour and book with Life Himalaya!
    See you next time.
