This fantastic Ama Dablam Base Camp Trek starts from Lukla following classic and legendary Everest Base Camp Trek. This trek is designed for those who would like to see Everest, but don't have time to walk all the way to Everest base camp but can allow a couple weeks in Nepal. The highest point of the trek is Ama Dablam Base Camp (4,570m) - a delightful grassy expanse below one of the world's most beautiful mountain profiles.

Upon arriving at Kathmandu international airport our company representative will meet and greet you; transfer to Hotel Radisson and relax before the memorable 30-minutes flight to Lukla airstrip early the following morning. From here you follow the trail towards Everest, via the Sherpa capital, Namche Bazaar and the region's most active and important Buddhist monastery at Tengboche. From both of these locations you can see Everest in the distance. Further on, at the village of Pangboche, you strike uphill to the Ama Dablam base camp, from where there are spectacular views across the valley. After lunch at Ama Dablam Base Camp and a second night in Pangboche, you re-trace your steps down the Khumbu Valley, before flying back to Kathmandu and a day of sightseeing in the capital.
