Ama Dablam which translates in the Nepali language as “Mother’s necklace” is aptly named for the impressive glacier on the Southwest face that resembles a jewel box hanging on the neck of the magnificent mountain. Standing at 6812 metres, the ice-coated granite pyramid of Ama Dablam is a dominant landmark that literally follows you along the popular trail to Everest Base Camp. Fortunately, the ‘Matterhorn of the Himalaya’ which is considered sacred by Nepalese has now been opened up to enthusiasts to appreciate it up close!
