Our Island Peak Climbing with Everest Base Camp trek project is intended to carry out both trekking and peak climbing in Nepal for all adventure lovers. Our Island peak with Everest base camp trek program begins as we take an invigorating flight to Lukla and begin trekking the exemplary Everest base camp through the Sherpa towns of Phakding, Namche, Tengboche, Dingboche, Lobuche and Gorekshep while spending through two night in Namche and Dingboche for proper acclimatization.
We trek to Everest base camp so that our body adapts for our Island peak climbing adventure. We additionally trek up to Kala Patthar for best views of Everest and its neighboring snow-capped mountains. Then, we trek back to Chhukung and advance towards the Island peak.
Initially, we trek to Island peak base camp, learn and get detail info with practicing use of climbing gears. We spend a night in base camp. Following day is the hardest day yet as we achieve the summit. The climb starts with a scramble up a rough crevasse to an edge where we put on crampons and rope up for the ice sheet crossing heading towards the south edge. The climb is as steep as 45 degree on the way to summit ridge from where we get astounding views of Lhotse, Makalu, Baruntse and other Himalayan panoramas.

How much money do I need to bring with me?
Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

Is a visa on arrival available?
Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.
When is the best time to summit Island Peak?
The ideal time for climbing Island Peak is around April to May and October through November. The winter and the monsoon months will likely have fewer crowds but wet weather and snow and cold may make the climb more challenging. Some tours do not ever offer climbing in these months. Your guide will have enough knowledge about the weather and geography to advise the exact right time while you are on tour as well.
