Ama Dablam by AlisterBenn

Ama Dablam is a mountain in the Himalaya range of eastern Nepal. The main peak is 6,812 metres (22,349 ft), the lower western peak is 6,170 metres (20,243 ft). Ama Dablam means “Mother’s necklace”; the long ridges on each side like the arms of a mother (ama) protecting her child, and the hanging glacier thought of as the dablam, the traditional double-pendant containing pictures of the gods, worn by Sherpa women.[3] For several days, Ama Dablam dominates the eastern sky for anyone trekking to Mount Everest basecamp.

After trekking for 7 days in Everest region, I reach to the top of Gokyo peak that base in the deep of Khumbu region of the Nepal Himalayas.

At 17,575 ft above sea level the panoramic view of Himalayas mountain range take my breath away, from Gokyo Ri it is possible to see four 8,000-metre peaks: Mount Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu.
