  • Gear yourself up for the shortest climb up Island Peak
This 4-day trip is one of the shortest climbs to Island Peak, the famous Everest Region peak sitting at 6189 meters high. Designed for budget climbers, the trip starts from Chukhung and heads to Island Peak and returns back to Chukung. The itinerary includes Island Peak base camp and high camp set up for two nights before the summit. This is a great option for those not planning a full 15-day Island Peak expedition.

We provide climbing permits, camping accommodation, most meals, hot drinks, climbing ropes, basic climbing training, and a Sherpa guide to take you to the top of Island Peak. Meet your guide at Chukhung. You can also hire a full climbing gear set at Chukhung at a reasonable price.

This is a great opportunity for anyone wishing to achieve a climbing goal!

An Amazing trekking experience
“If you have only limited time to see the highlights of Nepal, you want to be sure to make the best of it and not waste your time. Alpine Club of Himalaya did an excellent job in taking care of our brief visit to Nepal, and putting together an itinerary for a trip that included everything we wanted to see/do and more! Sujan, thank you very much for all your assistance and for your pleasant company!Great company and an amazing trip to Island Peak.”

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • 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.

  • How much should my backpack weigh?

    A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.  

  • Do I need a porter?

    The decision to hire a porter is up to you and usually based on your fitness level and/or budget. One porter can be shared between two people and can carry up to 25 kg. Many trekkers hire a porter to have a more comfortable trek.

  • Do I require a porter for carrying water?

    On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.
