Also known as ‘Imja Tse’, Island Peak is an impressive peak that is located in the Everest region in Nepal. Named "Island Peak” by Eric Shipton in the year 1953, this stunning wonder actually looks like a serene island surrounded by ice. It can be seen from Dingboche and is known to offer stunning views of Mt. Nuptse 7879m, Mt. Lhotse 8501m, Lhotse Middle Peak 8410 m and Lhotse Shar 8383m. To the east of Island Peak lies Mt. Makalu 8475m, Mt. Baruntse 7720m and Ama Dablam 6856m, rise majestically in the south.

An Island Peak climbing adventure begins with a scenic mountain flight to Lukla. Lukla is the gateway to the Khumbu and Everest region of Nepal. After landing, we gather our gears and begin our trek, gradually ascending the main Everest Base Camp trail which passes through Phakding, Namche Bazaar and Tyangboche to finally arrive at Dingboche.

After proper acclimatization, we continue our trek as we approach the Island Peak Base Camp. Before attempting the climb to the Island Peak summit, we will do some preparation, making sure that everybody is ready and fit for fight. Soon, we will tackle several technical climbing sections and head towards the summit. Our climb to the summit is rewarded with sensational views of the world’s greatest mountain ranges.

After a successful climb, we follow the same route to descend back to Lukla. Our experience of Island Peak ends with a scenic return flight from Lukla to Kathmandu.

You can also extend this adventure and combine it with a tour of the Everest Base Camp Trek. Please feel free to make an enquiry for a tailor-made programme.
