Amphu Laptsa Pass, is one of the most challenging passes in the Khumbu region. Due to its location to the south of the Khumbu, it offers spectacular views and it is not as crowded as the main trails. We will pass through the beautiful Hongu valley and further towards the technical Amphu Laptsa pass and enter the Khumbu valley at Chukung. Favorable season are the months of April and May and September to November.
