The challenge is worth the Reward!!! Reviewed Tour: Island Peak Climbing + Everest 3 High Passes Trek
Christopher Comes From USA At
5 - Excellent
“This trip will challenge you in so many ways but the rewards are worth it. In my opinion, this is the perfect trip because you still get a taste of the regular EBC route along with the comforts that are on that route, but you also branch off and get to experience a much less beaten path within Nepal. The passes also do a great job of preparing you for the ultimate challenge....Island Peak. As for Island Peak, I promise you'll look back on the experience and think, "wow...I really did that". Having seen the three pass route and parts of the regular EBC route, I recommend this trip for anyone wanting a more remote and challenging experience, helping to prepare for a 6000m summit.”

“Everything was well planned and arranged smoothly. Each and every information was explained clearly, we had a great time on the Island peak trip. Lakpa Sherpa our climbing guide was friendly, highly knowledgeable and well experienced he was very much familiar with the place. He always tries to make our trip enjoyable, most importantly our safety was his primal focus. Never compromise of our safety and service.
All in all our trip was wonderful, a trip to remember all the life. The majestic view from the top of the mountain- the smell of air which I remember till now. Island peak was more difficult to climb the sloppy glacier and weather make it even tougher.”

“We booked our trip of Island Peak climbing peak in August 2017 with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition. We are completely satisfied with their great value for money and amazing service and also absolutely great management team. Our climbing guide Dendi Sherpa- having more than 200 times, ascend this Island Peak, that was far more than we expect that. He helps to guide us.That was great pleasure for me to have great experience on Island Peak. Without his guidance climbing, the summit wouldn't have been possible. So, many thanks to everyone on the team who made this adventure Island Peak climbing successfully. we would highly recommend this company for any trekking & climbing services you require in Nepal.”

“Wonderful place Nepal, honest people ...... loved it. It's our misfortune, we could not see a clear view of the mountains due to cloudy weather, but the entire route of Climbing and Operator Team was great.
Many thanks to our guide - ANG DAWA SHERPA.
All in all, we are very happy with the trip. Porters are really hard workers; I can not imagine that they go with heavy backpack over the mountains.”

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.
