"Ama Dablam" is said to be the most beautiful mountain in the whole world. If I were you I would have picked that one as my project.

I belive there is several different routes to the top at different difficult level.

I've got to second the Ama Dablam choice, looks like an awesome mountain. BUT, there are a lot of mountains in that range that haven't seen ascents, check peakware.com... you should do some exploring

Ama Dablam certainly is a very very nice montain, but seems a bit too much for 2 persons alpine style in little more then 3 weeks...

Ill sniff around on peakware.com

Pumori is supposed to be a decent mountian and I don't think it gets that much traffic.

you could always acclimatize on something like Island Peak, isn't that in the area? That would cut down some time on Ama Dablam...

Ama Dablam is a beautiful mountain, but it has been overrun by commercial expeditions. I was on the SW Ridge of Pumori last october and I was impressed by the line, the SE Ridge is the "normal" route, but it typically has a very high avalanche hazard. If you are looking for a sexy peak Taweche is ultra sexy. But then again there are a lot of unreal mountains up in the khumbu. Good luck with your trip.
