Ama DablamAma Dablam is one of the most recognizable mountains in the world. Its picture is featured in many calendars, books about Nepal and it's even a symbol of one of the major investment companies. At 6,812 metres (22,349 feet) it towers over the trekkers going to Everest Base Camp. It adds to the
mountain's allure that there is no real easy way to the summit -
the easiest route contains exposed 5.7+ sections above 19,000 ft and high angle
