From Ghunsa, a steep 45mins climb and traverse on a narrow exposed track brings you finally to Amjilosa (2400m). There’s a good lodge here (Rs800, db Rs300) with 12 beds in 3 rooms and claims to be open all year. No Snickers/Mars, toilet paper, phone or electricity. A common vegetable on both sides of Kangchenjunga at this altitude is the tutsi karela, a sort of small bitter gourd that grows on vines and features in most meals.
