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.
