Island Peak Climbing

Island Peak ClimbingStanding at 6173 meters 'island Peak' is a real Himalayan summit that offers some of the most spectacular views across the Khumbu region. Also known as 'Imja Tse' Island peak is one of the most popular trekking peaks in the Himalayas of eastern Nepal. Therefore, climbing Island Peak is an incredible experience for all adventurous trekkers. The peak was named 'Island peak' by Eric Shipton's party in 1951, since it seems like an island in a sea of ice when viewed from Dingboche.

Climbing the Island Peak
There are two options for conquering this peak, one is a climb starting from a base camp at 5,087 meters calledPareshaya Gyab and the other is a popular high camp at around 5,600 meters. An ascent of Gokyo Ri and KalaPattar proves a good acclimatization hike and gives you spectacular close up views of the world's highest mountains including Mt.Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Makalu and many more.

This trek is especially designed for adventurers looking for a challenging and 'off the beaten path' which requires climbing and trekking experience to cross come of the most famous high passes and peaks.
