The dazzling Himalayan ridge and pristine lake at amadablam base camp is absolutely mind-blogging.

Amadablam peak (6812 m) is one of the most esoteric, awkward and intoxicate peak in the Everest Region. Ama Dablam means Mother necklace in the local language. The name comes from the unique shape where it seems a mother is holding her baby with a necklace like a glacier. More than 400 years old Tyanbouche Monastery, diverse but amazing landscape, culture & tradition of Sherpa attract. Himalayan herbs & spices, Flora & Fauna of Everest region are the splendiferous things to scrutinize.
