Island Peak Reviews

EBC trek + Island Peak trek Reviewed Tour: Island Peak Climbing Trek
Brittney Yuronich From USA
5 - Excellent
“We did the 18 day EBC + Island Peak climb with Nepal Guide Treks, Sonam as our guide, and it was amazing! Our previous mountain history was just a couple fourteeners in Colorado, so this was a big step up, but we felt very prepared and taken care of. Prakash is great about quickly returning emails/answering questions (which trust me, we had plenty of!) We had exercised A LOT prior to the trip, so early on I think we were easy clients for Sonam. But when it came to the actual Island Peak climbing day we needed help with some of the actual mountaineering stuff, and he was awesome! And even earlier on in the trip, he was great about giving us lots of cool info along the trek, pointing out and naming mountains, etc.

This trip was beyond amazing, and Nepal Guide Treks took care of everything so it all went seamless and smooth. If you’re thinking about this trip; to just do EBC, just be in good shape to truly enjoy it. If you want to climb Island Peak and haven’t done and prior technical mountains (or maybe just some in Colorado or something like us), either try to get SOME mountaineering experience with ropes/down climbing before you go out, or just be prepared to learn out there but know you may have a few hiccups that your guide will be helping you through too! Anyways.. highly recommend this trip with this group!!”
The tour operator responded on :

Island Peak Climbing - Overview

Island Peak, also known as Imja Tse, is a magnificent peak in the Himalayan range of eastern Nepal. Standing at a staggering height of 6,189 m /20,305 ft from sea level, this mountain is the starting point of the Imja River.

The Island Peak is a great first expedition for beginner mountaineers. The climb is mostly non-technical, yet fairly challenging – perfect for mountaineering enthusiasts who are just starting their Himalayan adventure. The “Island Peak” was named so in 1951 by the famous explorer Eric Shipton, because the peak seems to rise from a sea of ice. First climbed in 1956, the peak was a training exercise for the team that eventually climbed the Everest and the Lhotse.

The Island peak trek includes a journey to the beautiful Khumbu valley and an acclimatization hike through the Everest Base Camp. From the high vantage point of Kata Pattar, you can enjoy unrivaled views of the nearby Himalayan giants including the Everest.

During the trek, you’ll also travel through the challenging Kongma La pass, which leads to the Imja valley. Although you’ll stay in comfortable lodges for most of the trek, you’ll have to set up tented base camps before the actual climb.

The ascent to the peak features plenty of glaciers, moderate snow and a lot of ice climbing. Although it is mostly a non-technical climb, you’ll need some basic snow climbing skills to get to the peak. Once on the summit, you’ll get a breathtaking view of the nearby Lhotse, Everest, and other Himalayan peaks. One thing is for sure: the climb to the peak is extremely satisfying and absolutely worth the effort.

Island Peak - Itinerary

Island Peak Climb

The duration will be approx. 16-24 days, pending from when the companies count the starting point, and whether they include sightseeing in Kathmandu as part of the climbing package or not.

The trip will start in Kathmandu from where a flight is taken to Lukla, the airport that gives access to the entire Solu Khumbu and Everest region.

The first 8-10 days will be spent trekking on the famous Everest Base Camp trail. You’ll start trekking from Lukla at an altitude of 2,800 m and reach Island Peak Base Camp at an altitude of 5,200 m from where the climb of Island peak will start, ultimately reaching the top at 6,189 m.

After summiting the peak you will return back to Lukla and fly back to Kathmandu, where the trip will end. For exact itineraries please see the day-by-day itinerary available under each trip.
