Ama Dablam

Ama Dablam is one of the most beautiful mountains of the Khumbu. In January 2004, Srijit Dasgupta and I were walking back from Kala Pattar after being bruised and battered by a snow storm which kept us lodge bound at Pheriche for 2 days! It was so cold that the water used to freeze in our sleeping bags! On the return leg we stopped for the night at Pangboche at  a lodge owned by an Everest Sherpa. The morning was not very clear but as we started walking back towards Thyanboche and Namche Bazar, the weather improved and  started to clear and we had this stupendous view of the peak. Pangboche has an excellent location and not many trekkers stop there so the village is usually quiet and lodges are easily available. In winter we were the only guests!


  1. Magnificent shot. Apocalyptic.

  2. It's always a wish to visit such places , hopefully sometime will get a chance for the same. Have seen such locations in tv or internet only.
