Embark on this Island peak Climbing Trek in the Everest region that gives you an opportunity to experience both trekking and peak climbing. Island Peak or (Imja Tse) in the Imja valley of Khumbu area is the most achievable climbing peak without having prior mountaineering experience.

Located just 10 km away Mt. Everest summit, Island peak gives a 360 degree display of great Himalayas. Island peak, the most climbed climbing peak of Himalaya is really an augmentation of south end of Mt. Lhotse that remains as a stupendous peak in the midst of the mammoths of the Himalaya. If you love trekking in Nepal and want to have a peak climbing experience too, then this trip is an ideal choice for you.

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.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • 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 quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    There are no quarantine requirements in Nepal for arriving visitors at the moment.

  • 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.

  • How much should my backpack weigh?

    A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.  

  • Do I need a porter?

    The decision to hire a porter is up to you and usually based on your fitness level and/or budget. One porter can be shared between two people and can carry up to 25 kg. Many trekkers hire a porter to have a more comfortable trek.
