Trip Overview


Ama Dablam Base Camp trek with Island Peak climbing is an amazing adventure for a lifetime experience.  Ama Dablam and Island Peak both are located in the heart of the Khumbu region. We can say these two peaks are the gem of the region.
 
Mt. Ama Dablam has a height of 6812m above sea level and also the height of Base Camp is 4800meter. It is the majestic Mountain lies almost due south of Mt. Everest and Mt.

The trail passes through the steep rocky slopes and several small traditional villages inhabited by my ethnic group -mostly Sherpas.
 
Island peak is also known as the Imjatse Himal. 6189M high Island peak is the treasure of Khumbu region. It is one of the most beautiful peak in the great Himalayas range. We will be staying at the Base camp of Island peak to be acclimatized.  The Base Camp is at the height of 5087 meters.
