Ama-Dablam, the name is derived from the two words ama (Nepali words for mother) and Dablam traditionall double pendent containing two pictures of gods). The mountain is shaped like a pyramid with ridges extending from each side which looks like arms of a mother holding her baby and has a long hanging glacier that looks like a double pendent. The beautiful mountain of Amadablam lies in the south of Mt. Everest and Mt. Lhotse in Khumbu Region.

Mt. Dablam is visible all over the eastern sky in the trekking route to Mt. Everest Base Camp is very popular among the climbers. The southwest ridge is the well-known route taken by climbers to ascend Mt. Ama-Dablam. The peach is considered technically difficult to conquer. The trek also gives a panoramic view of mountains like Everest, Cho-Oyu, Makalu and Lhotse, which burst of excitement to the journey.
