Kangchenjunga 02 06 Amjilassa House  [14 of 16]


The next day we trekked from Sakathum (1640m) to Gyapra (2730m) in seven hours, ascending 1230m. Merciless! Climb 100m only to descend 80. Climb 200m only to descend 150. The so-called flat parts were even up and down. The actual number of metres ascent to Amjilassa was probably double the absolute difference of 890m. The good news was that the vertigo-inducing trail has been replaced with a new normal trail. If I'm ever reborn a chicken, a Nepal village like Amjilassa (2490m) would be ideal. You can go wherever you want, instead of being 'coop'ed up. Hey, look at some of those clothes on the line, they look familiar.
