Known as Imja Tse among the locals, Island Peak is one of the most popular peaks among trekkers. it was named Island Peak in 1953 due to its appearance as an island adrift on a sea of ice.

“Nepal is a varied and interesting country with magnificent landscapes, interesting cultures and wonderful people. We had 15 days walking trip in Nepal EVEREST BASE CAMP. I strongly recommend our guide Chris Chhetri and his team to experience the best trip. Good companies -fun games at nights despite of tiredness, helpful and well equipped with knowledge of the each place. They even cooked our meal for us.

“That was back in 2011 and my first trekking experience. Together with my friends and our dear guide Chris Chhetri we reached Poon Hill (3 210 m). Since it was my first time in mountains, it was great to face challenges with the guide who knows every step of the trek and motivates you to see more here. Our reward - amazing beauty of Himalayas! Thank you!”

GOOD TO KNOW
NOTE: 1. Lukla flight based from Ramechhap Airport Dear Guests! This is to inform all of you that Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) has issued a NOTAM for Taxiway Maintenance due to which Kathmandu Airport will be closed from 22:30 hours to 6:30 hour everyday effective from September 01, 2019 to December 31, 2019. During the above mentioned period there will be more traffic congestion at Kathmandu Airport which leads to Air Traffic Hold, flight delay and high possibility for flight cancellation due to flight startup queue, therefore for smooth operation of Lukla flights, all the airlines will be operating Lukla flight from Ramechhap Airport effective October 01, 2019 to December 31, 2019. Ramechhap is located in the Tamakoshi River Valley, the capital of Ramechhap District at an altitude of 474 meter. It is located 132 kms east of Kathmandu and takes about 4 hours by drive from Kathmandu. Thank you for your support and apology for the inconvenience caused by this which is beyond our control. Alternatively, if you prefer to ride helicopter to/from Lukla based from Kathmandu avoiding long drive to/from Ramechhap can be arranged upon request paying additional fees. 2. In a worst-case scenario, if the flight from Kathmandu / Ramechhap to Lukla, or Lukla to Kathmandu / Ramechhap is delayed or cancelled due to bad weather, we can always transfer you to a next day ticket. However, in case you’re on a tight schedule time-wise, we can charter in a helicopter at additional fees.
CANCELLATION Free cancellation up to 60 days prior departure, after which the deposit becomes non-refundable.
