After flying 35 minutes from Kathmandu to Lukla, our adventure will begin and continue as a trekking via Namche, Tangboche, Lobuche, Everest Base Camp, Kalapatthar then ultimately head to Island peak base camp. Climbing is a passion and the most breathtaking adventure journey we do in the Himalaya. Island Peak is one of the most popular climbing peak in the Everest region and entire Nepal. Most of the climbers attempt to climb Island Peak before doing some serious and technical Climbing/Expedition. The best advantage of doing Island peak is you can also include Everest Base Camp 5364 m and Kalapatthar 5550 m at the same time which will provide you 360 degree towering Himalaya around and of course better acclimatization for Island Peak climbing. Island peak is also called Imja Tse which is located in Sagarmatha National Park of the Himalayas in eastern Nepal. However the peak is quite popular as Island Peak than Imja Tse. It was named Island Peak in 1951 by Eric Shipton because of it appears as an island which was a sea of ice when viewed from Dingboche. The peak is actually extension of the ridge coming down off the south end of Lhotse.
We can climb Island peak directly from the Base Camp 4970 m or from the high camp 5600 m. Since base camp to high camp is just hiking trail then most of the climbers might climb directly from Base Camp to the Top. We will encounter with the mighty rocks and ice wall at a slope of 45 degree, leading to the narrow summit ridge and offering spectacular views of the cristal clear Himalayas surroundings with amazing sunrise.
