Island Peak Climbing (26 Days)

Island Peak Climbing
Island Peak Climbing

Island Peak also known as Imja tse is clearly seen as a pyramid of ice and rock peak in Nepal. The mountain itself is the extension of the South Ridge of Lhotse Shar separated by a small col. The ridge rising to the south from this point leads to the summit of Island Peak. Island Peak climbing in Nepal not only provides an enjoyable climb but also provides some of the most spectacular scenery of Himalayas in the Khumbu region. Seen from the summit the giant mountains, Nuptse (7,879m), Lhotse (8,501m), Lhotse Middle Peak (8,410m) and Lhotse Shar (8,383m) make a semi circle in the north. The views of Makalu (8475m) in the east, Baruntse and Ama Dablam in the south add more charm for climbing Island Peak. The journey came to end at Lukla airstrip then we fly back to Kathmandu.

Utmost Adventure prepared the itinerary including trekking Gokyo Valley to Everest Base Camp and to Island Peak. This is the most popular climbing / trekking peak in Nepal. Sherpa capital of Namche Bazaar is veering off the trail to Everest base came. We will enter the magnificent Gokyo valleys, a land of high altitude lakes and icy glaciers. After crossing Cho La (5,420 m / 17,778 ft) (except going to Gokyo valley and Chhukuma La Pass we proceed towards Everest base camp as well) we go towards the Khumbu glacier en route to Everest base camp (5,358 m / 17,575ft) and you can enjoy spectacular panorama from Kala Patthar at 18,192ft (5,545m.). Our route descends to Dignboche and goes to Chhukung valley and Island Peak (Imja Tse) Base camp.
