There are many thousands of peaks throughout the world that are over 6,000m. In Nepal there are the ever popular “Trekking Peaks” such as Mera and Island Peak that have introduced many thousands of people to Himalayan Climbing. One peak however stands out from them all. Not because it is the highest in the category of 6,000m – 7,000m peaks, it isn’t, but because it is the most beautiful.
Without doubt Ama Dablam at 6,856 is everyone’s idea of the perfect mountain. There are many mountaineers who have climbed higher peaks who would claim without hesitation that Ama Dablam is the finest climb they have ever done.
