Ama Dabalm, Khumbu Himal, Nepal
Often referenced as the most beautiful mountain in the world, Ama Dablam holds a transcendent place in mountain culture. The name literally translates to Mother’s Necklace and dominates the skyline of the Khumbu Valley in Nepal. When not shrouded in cloud, the mountain’s ridges resemble the outstretched arms of a mother (‘Ama' in Sherpa language) protecting her children. ‘Dablam’ is in reference to the hanging glacier high on the peak, resembling the the traditional double pendant necklace often worn that contains pictures of the gods.

آما دابلام، خومبو هيمال، النيبال
يحظى جبل آما دابلام -الشامخ في أفق وادي خومبو النيبالي- بمكانة خاصة في الثقافة المحلية، ويعتبره الكثيرون "أجمل جبل في العالم". ويعني اسمه "قلادة الأم"؛ حيث تشبه نتوءاته عندما تكون السماء صافية ذراعي أم تحمي أطفالها ("آما" بلغة لبشيربا) . أما كلمة "دابلام" (أي القلادة)، فشتير إلى الكتلة الثلجية التي تكسو قمته، فتبدو للناظرين شبيهة بقلادة مزدوجة يرتديها المحليون حاملين عليها صوراً للآلهة.
