Did you do Mera and Island as well? What was your impression of Amphu Labsa?

Yes, we were fortunate enough to make the summit of both on the same trip.

For me Amphu Labsa was the most difficult of the three. I think it shouldn't be taken lightly. My advice: start really early, before the sun's rays start to melt the ice above.

On the northern side we only rappeled one length of rope, and from other people's photos I think we chose a different direction to do so.

It is a very rewarding trip, I bet you will enjoy yourself!

If you go anti-clockwise from Lukla (i.e. Hinku, Mera, Hongu, Amphu Labsa, Imja Tse) you might get some 'culture shock' at Chukung, meeting all those people after several weeks of peace... But I see you have already been to Nepal.

Let me know if you need any more info. Nelson is also very helpful - he was a goldmine of information for me 2 years ago.

Lhotse seen from south must be on of the most impressive mountains of the world!

Yes, it was a magnificent sight from the Hongu valley, Amphu Labsa and Imja Tse.
