    “Trip has been really nice, Unique Adventure international planned everything really good. Accommodation, food, trekking itineraries have been super. Guide was really experienced also. I would recommend this company to everyone coming to Nepal if going to trek or climb. Doing climbing and trekking in monsoon time is also nice, there is few people on the trails and the view during the morning is also good enough.”

    “I was satisfied with Buddha Trekking and Expedition prompt email correspondence, meet / greet at airport, transfers to and from hotel and the trekking guide. I was very disappointed with the chosen climbing guide that took over at Island Peak Base camp. He was arrogant and dismissive when I needed to take a break to drink some; while crossing the glacier and being short ropped together he tugged on the rope as to say that I was walking too slow which caused me to stumble and fall several times which is particularly dangerous when walking on glaciers riddled with crevasses. I would rate this high if better care was taken in which mountain guides are used.”
    The tour operator responded on :
    “Dear Tyrone,
    Greeting from Buddha Treks!

    Thanks you very much for contacting us to organize your holidays in Nepal. We highly appreciate an opportunity and your trust on us.

    We apologize to know that you did not have good experience with climbing guide, we have provided. Normally, he used to work sincerely and honest on his duty. Therefore, we have used him. We appreciate your review about him. It is nice to know so we will have an opportunity to correct errors in the future. We defiantly correct it.

We saw so many incredible sights and were able to successfully summit Island Peak. It was the trip of a lifetime and we are very grateful that there were no issues or problems throughout the trip. All we had to worry about was putting one foot in front of the other, everything else was taken care of by Unique Adventure International.”

    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.
