  • Outstanding views of Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Makalu from the summit.
  • The perfect experience for adventurers!
The Imja Tse peak (6160 m), better known as Island Peak, is one of the most famous and certainly most invigorating trekking peaks in Nepal, and probably in the whole world. In 1953, Eric Shipton's group named it Island Peak since resembled an island in a sea of frost when seen from Dingboche. It will enthrall you with its fabulous natural scenery and most notably, you will get a great vantage point to stare in awe at the world’s highest peak- Mount Everest.

Enjoy stunning views of Himalayan greats such as Lhotse (8,501 m), Nuptse (7,879 m), Lhotse Shar (8,383 m), Makalu (8475 m), Lhotse Middle Peak (8,410 m) in the east, while Amadablam and Baruntse welcome you from the south as you reach the Imja Tse Peak.

The best season for climbing Island Peak is during the Spring season (March-May) and in autumn (Oct-Nov). Let us take you to Island Peak and its magnificent snowy west face that can be seen towering from the Lhotse Glacier. This trekking peak offers a memorable experience for adventure lovers.
