Overview

Are you willing to widen your experience towards the peak climbing expedition than just simply trekking in Nepal?  Then you need to try Island peak climbing. It is an exquisite entry into Himalayan climbing which gives the best satisfaction. That every aspirant and serious climber can dream of! Island peak was originally name as, “Imje Tse” . But it was later popular as Island peak due to its fascinating location in the middle of the Chhukung valley. It looks like an island on a sea of ice.

Island peak stands tall at 6189m. And offers the splendid views of biggest mountains in the world which includes Mt. Everest, Makalu, Ama Dablam and Nuptse.  Island Peak has an impressive highly glaciated west face that rises from the Lhotse Glacier which is a bit tough to do, however the magnificent views from the summit are certainly a fitting reward for our efforts. It is the most popular peak climbing destination in Nepal.

Island Peak climbing is mostly non-technical with some basic snow climbing skills required to achieve the ascent. These skills will be taught or revised during the early stages of the climb. But, you need to be physically fit to push your limits. Island peak, though it is not among the tallest peaks, the climbing sensation one gets is the most exhilarating one. It can be an ultimate rush for the climbers to make their way through one of the breathtaking scenery in Nepal.

Island peak climbing commences with a flight to Lukla airport. We take a trail to Everest Base Camp therefore you can gain the experience of being on the top of the world with peak climbing experience.
