Inverted Rainbow over Ama Dablam – Everest, Khumbu Region, Nepal

Inverted Rainbow over Ama Dablam - Everest, Khumbu Region, Nepal

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 dominated the southern sky of my 2008 trek via the 5000 metres Cho La Pass to Mount Everest
