Island Peak Climbing

Island Peak Climbing

If there is one thing that is recalled over and over again about Nepal, it has to be the mountains and the Island peak climbing is one of the journeys you will not forget. In Sagarmatha (Everest) region of Nepal, the Island Peak climb is one that will take you through glaciers, breath-taking scenery, Himalayan villages of unique cultures and traditions.

The Imja Tse ascending begins in Lukla and will take you the lakes of Gokyo which are a number of lakes on the foothills of the Cho Oyu (8,201m) and through Everest base camp which is the front door to the highest mountain on Earth. As beautiful and grand the Everest region may be it is still in its pristine raw nature and much caution should be taken while trekking this region.  At 6,189m the Island peak is a popular peak to climb in Nepal. This climb has the advantage of having a high camp at 5,600m which reduces the summit day. From the peak we will able to enjoy fantastic views of Lhotse Shar (8,383m), Makalu (8,481m), Baruntse (7,129m) and Ama Dablam (6,812m). The island peak is a strenuous and rigorous trek which is recommended for fit people. During our climb we will also be making stops at different places to acclimatize to the altitude, acclimatization is a must for everyone so as to avoid major health risks. Island Peak climbing bound to get your adrenaline pumping and will give you a sense of great achievement once we reach the summit, making the journey worth everything.

With professional trekking guides and the best mountaineering gears, we have been operating Island Peak Climbing since long time ago.

We will prepare for our climb tomorrow and sleep as soon as possible today. Overnight at tented camp.

    We will begin our climb early in the morning usually around 1-2 AM. In the beginning, we will be met by rock steps which are the passageway to the ridge which brings in full view of the summit.

After taking some pictures and spending some time we will make our way back to Chhukung itself today. Overnight at tented camp.

    Because not all treks are complete on the day of the plan due to bad weather or the varying number of reasons, we keep a contingency day as a backup plan. If we were unable to reach the summit yesterday, we will try again today.
