Ama Dablam, Nepal


Situated in Nepal, Ama Dablam is one of the most distinctive (and some argue the most beautiful) mountains in the Himalaya.  Its main peak -- thought of by some as the Matterhorn of the Himalayas -- stands at 6,812 meters (22,349 ft), the lower western peak is 6,170 meters (20,243 ft).  The name "Ama Dablam" means "Mother's Necklace."

The mountain was first climbed in 1961 by a team from the USA and New Zealand, and it remains a popular climbing peak to this day.

It is memorable to watch the sun rise from behind this lovely mountain.
