Descending the Amphu Labsa
Descending an exposed section on the north side of Amphu Labsa at above 18,000', with Island Peak (Imja Tse) shining in the background.

This pass, linking the Hongu and Imja Valleys, can be closed by avalanche conditions and has been the scene of several fatal accidents. A misstep here would be unfortunate.

See this photo for a view from the base of the pass.

November, 1994
