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.

Great Guide, Terrible Guide Company
The local guide was fantastic, but do NOT book through this website. Book in person and you will pay a third of the price.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • Is a visa on arrival available?

    Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.


  • How much will a trip to Nepal cost?

    How much you spend in Nepal is largely decided by things you want to do in the country. A 5-day trekking trip in Nepal can start from as little at USD 400 per person. A weekend-long safari in Chitwan National Park is available at less than USD 200.

    On average, seven days in Nepal with accommodation and some or all meals included costs anywhere between USD 700 to USD 1500 per person. Good rooms at hotels in Nepal range from USD 25 to over USD 150 per person, per night, while around USD 1.5 a day can buy you three meals in decent restaurants. 

  • I need personal climbing equipment. Can I rent it from the tour operator?

    Usually, yes. And in case the tour operator cannot provide you with climbing equipment, then they can easily recommend a reliable local shop where you can rent climbing equipment.


  • Is Asia open for tourists?

    Despite the initial fears of the Covid-19 pandemic, most Asian countries have managed to mitigate its effects. As such, many popular destinations throughout the continent are currently open for travelers with precautionary measures like mandatory vaccinations. A few countries, however, require newly arrived travelers to spend a couple of days in quarantine.

    As of February 2022, countries like Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia are officially open for vaccinated tourists without the need for quarantine. Meanwhile, India and Indonesia are two of the countries that may require you to quarantine for up to a week on arrival. However, Japan, Vietnam, and Myanmar are yet to open their doors to visitors.


  • When is the best time to summit Island Peak?

    The ideal time for climbing Island Peak is around April to May and October through November. The winter and the monsoon months will likely have fewer crowds but wet weather and snow and cold may make the climb more challenging. Some tours do not ever offer climbing in these months. Your guide will have enough knowledge about the weather and geography to advise the exact right time while you are on tour as well.
