Island Peak Climbing from Chhukung is a great way to explore some of the best and most stunning views of the Himalayan range. It takes some effort to climb the peak but you're sure to fall in love with the endless views of Everest, Makalu and Lhotse and mesmerizing experiences found here.

At Chhuking (4750m), a short walk leads to a small settlement where we rest for the day and make preparations for the climb. The next day we head on to Island Peak Base Camp, which requires a steep climb followed by a comfortable walk through the river basin.

We climb further to the High Camp at an elevation of 5600 meters where we rest inside the tent and prepare for the early morning climb the next day. Through rock formations and glacial regions, we ascend to the top, taking the support of ropes at some places.

After enjoying the splendid view from the top, we descend all the way to Chhukung, where we rest after the strenuous journey. An extra day has been added to the trip as a contingency to bad weather or physical ailments.

Review for another Green Valley Nepal Treks Pvt Ltd tour
5 - Excellent
“Our guide was wonderful! Mingmar knew so much history and always answered any questions. Our group were random strangers but we all quickly became friends. This adventure is going to be difficult to top. Food was delicious and accommodations were better than expected for such a remote region. I forgot something of value at a previous stop. Our guide called the tea house and learned they had found the item. Without asking or suggesting the tea house owner arranged for the item to be brought to where we were staying and the person who made the 6 hour trek hand delivered it and wouldn't take any sort of reward or gratitude beyond a grateful hug.”
Hisham's review for another Green Valley Nepal Treks Pvt Ltd tour

“Green Valley Treks have given me not only one of the best trekking experiences of mylife but also gave me the chance to get to know lots of new great friends from allover the world. The moment I booked with Green Valley their Managing Director (Rajendra Lamichhane) was in constant contact with me to answer all my questions and to make sure that preparing for the trek was easier for me. When I arrived at Kathmandu he helped me himself to get all I needed and be prepared for the trek. The guide (Bhairas Tamang) had much experience in the trek itself add to that much medical knowledge especially about altitude sickness and how to treat it which helped us avoid it during the trek. Having good English have made communication qith him much easier but how friendly, sociable and understanding he was was what made him a great companion. I was offered exceptional service at every place we stayed in during the trek. Best of all mu goal was their aim and they helped me with all means possible to reach it. If you're intrested in visiting Nepal for an extraordinary trek, Green Valley Treks is your best choice.”

The steep trail ascends along the south and takes a twist at the Lhotse glacier. An easing walk alongside the riverbed continues till we come to a huge rock and the zigzag route then passes Imja to Lhotse Glacier and opens up in a wide valley. To the southeast of Island Peak lies the base camp where we set tent and rest for the night.

Today, we start early in the morning and ascend many rock culverts, followed by a walk along the ridgeline that leads to the snout of the glacier. With some ropes for support, we now cross this snow and ice slope to the top. The summit (6,189 m) is just three rope lengths away from here. After climbing to the top, enjoy the fruits of your labor as you're treated to some of the best views of the Himalayas. We then descend to Chhukung.
