Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) has decided to take the torch of Nepal Tourism Year (NTY) 2011 campaign to the summit of Mt. Ama Dablam.
NMA President Zimba Zangbu Sherpa said that a 10 member Nepal Tourism Year 2011 Torch Expediton will take the torch to the summit of Ama Dablam on January 14, coinciding with the formal launch of the NTY campaign.
An expedition to Ama Dablam is technically demanding and has it all – ice, rock, scrambling, killer views, great approach and the great base camp in a meadow with a stream.
Dolpo requires some extra logsistics and Pemba made all necessary arrangements. We also benefited. Both treks were wonderful! from having a local guide- Baba –in Mustang- as this is more of a cultural trek-his personal knowledge was useful.
We work with the motto "Tourism for Development". Explore Himalaya Community Service Project was conceived to empower underprivileged segments of Nepal.
