HIGHLIGHTS
  • Summit the 6,189m high Island Peak, known among the locals as Imja Tse
  • Enjoy trekking in the world famous Everest region
  • See majestic views of the Himalayas
Join us on this guided, 4-day adventure of a lifetime and get the chance to scale Island Peak. One of the most popular peaks among budding as well as experienced climbers, summiting this peak offers climbers the chance to increase their skill level as well as enjoy an unparalleled view of the majestic Himalayas.

Known among the locals as Imja Tse, this peak got its English name because it looks like an island adrift on a sea of ice from afar. Although physically demanding, summiting Island Peak is not as technically challenging as people assume, making it an ideal summit for budding mountaineers. Meet your team members in Chhukung on the first day of the adventure and get all the necessary details.

Head for Island Peak Base Camp on the second day of the trip. You will have plenty of time to train using your ice axe and ropes as well as walking on the surface of a glacier at the base camp. Spend your night there and start your journey to the top early in the morning on Day 3.

Enjoy stunning views of Nuptse, Lhotse, Makalu, Ama Dablam and Baruntse mountains from the summit before heading down. This itinerary also comes with a reserve day just in case the weather does not favour us. For more details, please go through the itinerary below.

Joe's review for another Nepal Climbing Adventure Pvt. Ltd. tour
“We had the most amazing experience trekking the route to ABC. We experienced sun, rain and snow across valleys, mountains, farms and waterfalls!
We were looked after very well by unique adventures and specifically our lovely guide Ruplal. Ruplal was so attentive, caring and funny. We felt in good hands. His guide in training Manoj was great too. It was really nice getting to know them and learning about their familys and life from both Buddhist and Hindu sides.
I would definitely recommend the trip and company, seeing the mountains up close is fairytale magic! ..the hours of walking up and down steep steps are quickly forgotten. Pokhara is a beautiful place to chill after he trek also:)”

  • When is the best time to summit Island Peak?

Your guide will have enough knowledge about the weather and geography to advise the exact right time while you are on tour as well.
