Beautiful photos

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

Re: Beautiful photos

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.

Re: Beautiful photos

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.

Great!

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

Re: Great!

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