The tour Everest Base Camp & Island Peak starts from and ends in Kathmandu. It is a trekking trip that takes 22 days taking you through Dingboche, Gorakshep, Debuche and 9 other destinations in Nepal. Everest Base Camp & Island Peak is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Combine a climb on Island Peak (6189m/20,305ft) with a trek through the stunning Everest region for a superb introduction to Himalayan mountaineering.. Step into the world of high altitude mountaineering with a climb on Island Peak! Our carefully devised itinerary offers an exceptional way to acclimatise safely, absorbing the incredible scenery of the Everest region before climbing Island Peak. To aid our acclimatisation for the upcoming climb, our first goal is to trek to both Everest Base Camp and nearby Kala Pattar for spectacular views of Mount Everest. To do this, we ascend slowly through Sherpa villages beyond the treeline into a barren, but dramatic land of ice, rock and towering peaks. For us, reaching Everest Base Camp is just the midpoint of our adventure. We then descend back down the valley and turn our attention towards our main goal, the climb of Island Peak. Summit day on Island Peak is moderately challenging, steeper than Mera with an airy summit ridge and the views from the summit are truly unforgettable. This trip is much more than just a hike through the Everest region. Island Peak is a great climb, with a rewarding summit day, and an ideal way to launch into the lofty world of Himalayan mountaineering.

“I would highly recommend World Expeditions for any trekking in Nepal. The staff looked after us with care and compassion in the good times and the bad. I could not have asked for a better experience on our trek. The scenery is of course amazing but the staff are equally as amazing!”
