HIGHLIGHTS
  • Island Peak summit. Perfect launch into Himalayan mountaineering.
  • Rewarding adventure and stunning views from atop a real Himalayan peak at 6,189m/20,305ft.
  • Breath taking scenaries of Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Makalu from the summit.
Island peak was renamed "Imje Tse" in the early '80s, though its original name, Island Peak, is still more popular. The mountain was named "Island Peak" in 1952 AD due to its striking location in the middle of the Chhukung valley, like an island on a sea of ice. Island Peak has an impressive highly glaciated west face that rises from the Lhotse Glacier which is a bit tough to do, however the magnificent views from the summit are certainly a fitting reward for our efforts.

Island Peak climbing with Everest Base Camp Trek is a fantastic experience in the Himalayas of Nepal. It is designed for energetic and physically fit trekkers with little or no experience in mountain expedition. Island Peak (6,189m/20,305ft) is one of the main climbing peaks in the Everest Region of Nepal with an impressive and highly glaciated West Face that rises from the Lhotse Glacier. Being one of the 'trekking peaks' with very little technical aspects, Island Peak is not a difficult undertaking for a beginner climber wishing to enter the incredible world of mountain climbing. Hundreds of climbers flock to Nepal every year to get a permit for Island Peak climbing. Our adventure also takes us into the heartland of the Khumbu Valley and Sherpa culture. Before scaling the peak, we also visit, possibly the most popular trekking destination in the world - Everest Base Camp (5,357m/17,575ft) and Kala Patthar - for the up-close views of Mt. Everest and other high mountains.

The Island peak climbing itinerary has proper and gradual acclimatization at suitable intervals. The 19-day journey begins from and comes to a conclusion at one of the most famous airstrips in the world, the Lukla Airport in the Everest Region.

Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November) are the best months for climbing Island Peak. Although Island Peak can be climbed during winter, the cold temperature might not be suitable for everyone.

We look forward to taking you on a mountaineering experience of a lifetime. Please see the itinerary for a day-by-day overview.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • I need personal climbing equipment. Can I rent it from the tour operator?

    Usually, yes. And in case the tour operator cannot provide you with climbing equipment, then they can easily recommend a reliable local shop where you can rent climbing equipment.

     

  • 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.
