Island Peak Climbing

Island Peak (Imja Tse), 6169m. is one of the most popular lesser peaks and scaling the mountain you will need some mountaineering skill. Island Peak is located on top of the Chukung glacier between Ama Dablam and Lhotse Mountains, Island Peak has a been attracting over 300 groups each year to attempt its summit. The main reason of its popularity is its technically straightforward ridge, which attracts a lot of novice climbers without having previous knowledge of snow and ice climbing. A physically fit & acclimatized person is well qualified to make an ascent on the Peak. A short orientation and demonstration on ice climbing performed by our Ama Dablam guides and Sherpa guides at base camp works well to head you off for your summit bid. Before climbing Island Peak, we trek up the Dudh Kosi valley from Lukla, passing through Namche and Tengboche on our way to Kala Pattar and Everest Base Camp. After being rested and feeling physically fit and acclimatized, we then head up the beautiful Imja Khola valley towards Island Peak. Besides trekking adventure, we also get to witness pristine Sherpa villages and ever-so-serene monasteries. With ponderous memories of the trekking earlier done, we retrace our route back through Namche to Lukla, and from there on we fly back to Kathmandu.
