KATHMANDU, Jan 18: Fahad Badar, the Qatari high-altitude climber and adventure seeker, successfully climbed Mount Ama Dablam recently, Qatari media reported on Monday.
Badar, the first Arab man to summit Everest and Lhotse in a single trip, reached the summit of Ama Dablam on Jan 14, according to The Peninsula Online.
Ama Dablam-which translates to “mother’s necklace”- is a life-changing ascent. Located in the Nepali Himalayas, Ama Dablam is a daunting peak rising 6,856 meters in elevation.
Mount Amadablam is a popular mountaineering destination for experienced mountaineers, not only for its incredible natural appeal but also for the exhilarating challenges that accompany the climb.
“I was looking forward to reaching the summit of Ama Dablam. It’s been quite a long time since I’ve been away from the mountains, and I have the need to return to the place where I feel the most alive,” Fahad has been quoted by The Peninsula Online as saying.
