Island Peak 6189m also known as Imja Tse is situated in the Kumbu valley of Nepal. It is one of Nepal’s most classic trekking peaks and the perfect first 6000er. Island Peak is taken as the mostly climbed Trekking Peak in Nepal. It can be climb in both the spring and autumn season. Island Peak looks like an island in the sea from above Dingboche. Island Peak offers very beautiful outlook of Everest Lhotse Amadablam Makalu and many more snow covered mountains. Our adventure begins with a short flight to Lukla and two days of easy walking to Namche bazaar. En- route to Base Camp our trail takes us into the high valleys of the Khumbu region providing magnificent views of Everest and the satellite peaks. Island Peak is a substantial undertaking which demands hard work and commitment however the rewards of standing on top of this Himalayan are tenfold.
Island Peak is open to anyone looking for a real Himalayan adventure. The ascent of Island Peak is challenging and will requires use of crampons and an ice axe to navigate the glaciers and ice headwall that characterises the climb. Some prior mountaineering experience is recommended before you take on Island Peak, and a good level of fitness is mandatory!
Once at the top, you will find that all the hard work was worth it as you will have wonderful panoramic vistas of Ama Dablam, Lhotse and Mera Peak. The descent is also a long affair, but once completed,the return journey to Lukla is fast and easy.
