This Island Peak Climbing and 3 Passes trek package is the ultimate and complete trekking and climbing experience in the Everest region.!. It combines two very popular packages into one: The Everest 3-passes Trek and Island Peak Climb.

In this combined package, you traverse the entire Everest region. This tour is perfect for ambitious trekkers who want to cross high altitude passes and also summit a Himalayan peak. Although peak-climbing is involved, this tour does not require technical climbing skills, you just have to be fit and healthy.

To get to Island peak, you walk up the Dudh Koshi Valley from Lukla, walking through Namche and Tengboche, then to Kala Patthar and finally reach Everest Base Camp. From here, you will get extremely close-up views of Mt. Everest and a get to enjoy mesmerizing sunrise views over the snow-capped peaks on top of the Khumbu Glacier. Then, we descend to Chhukung and get ready for the challenging Island Peak climb. This trekking peak is suitable for all and no previous mountaineering experience is needed.

The ascent to Island peak features plenty of glaciers, moderate snow and some ice climbing. Although it is mostly a non-technical climb, you’ll need some basic snow climbing skills to get to the peak, which we will teach you. Once on the summit, you’ll get a breathtaking view of the nearby Lhotse, Everest, and other Himalayan peaks.

The 3-passes trek, which this tour also includes, takes you across the three high mountain passes of Kongma La (5,540 m), Cho La (5,335 m) and Renjo La (5,400 m). The Kongma La pass leads us to the Imja valley.

This Island Peak Climbing and Everest 3 High Passes tour links with the four distinct valleys of Bhotekoshi, Gokyo, Khumbu and Imja tse in the Everest region. It is an unforgettable trekking and climbing experience in Nepal. We look forward to take you on this journey of a lifetime.

“I had an awesome trek in December on the three high passes and Everest base camp circuit.

From my arrival in Kathmandu, everything was very well organized until I leave the country. I was taken care of by Rajendra, the owner, who made sure I had everything I needed and lended me some missing equipment for the trek.

During the 3 weeks of the trek, my guide Kanchha was outstanding ! He was very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. He always made sure I was comfortable and safe and patiently waited for me and even helped me carry some of my stuff during the most challenging parts of the climb :).

This has been an amazing experience and I highly recommend Friends Adventure Team for trekking Nepal.
I will definitely come back for another trek !”

“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.”

“This Trek was difficult, but very rewarding. Our guide Venn was always happy and willing to give advice and encouragement whenever needed. He was always on standby for anything we requested, and was happy to do so. The Porters are amazing, and deserve huge credit for the service they provide. The group of Trekkers were awesome and we bonded well. Overall, i highly recommend this Trek to all Adventurers.”
