About Mt. Everest and Ama Dablam
At 8,848m, Mt. Everest is the highest peak on Earth. Known locally by the name of Chomolungma, which means “Goddess Mother of The Earth “, Everest is located on the Nepal-Tibet border in the high Himalayan range.
Ama Dablam means “Mother and Pearl Necklace” and is an amazingly beautiful mountain that many consider the most stunning in the region. For several days, Ama Dablam will dominate the sky for anyone trekking to the Mount Everest region . The base camp below South West Face ranks among the most beautiful base camps in the Himalayas.
