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.
It was great, lots of climbs and descents, varied terrain, some magnificent forests, nice waterfalls.
The accomodation was OK, The food was the same everywhere, but I like it very much. Lots of hot lemon drinks. Magnificent view of the mountains
Most of the local people spoke English so you can get in touch with the local peopal. Almost every places had wi-fi free. I was lucky with my guide Ramesh Gorkhali, who guided me perfectly around Annapurna circuit. Surely I will come back to do next trekking.”

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.
