Island Peak climbing, which stands tall at an elevation of 6,198m, is the most popular climbing peak in Nepal among 326 peaks currently permitted for climbing and mountaineering. Also known as the Imja Tse in the local Sherpa language, the peak is situated between the picturesque Khumbu region and Imsa Tse Valley. The mountain was named Island Peak by celebrated British mountaineer, Sir Eric Shipton as it looks like an island from afar amidst the icy alpine water.Located in the Sagarmatha National Park, Island Peak climbing is an extension of a peak coming down from the southern face of Mt. Lhotse Shar. Its first successful expedition was carried out in 1956 by a Swiss expedition group as a practice climb before ascending Mt Everest. Since then it has been a favorite as a go-to peak among mountaineers and climbers alike. The peak is described as a perfect climbing peak if you are looking for a perfect strike of balance between fun, adventure, and adrenaline rush.From the top of Island Peak, we can have the most amazing views of the mountain ranges of the Khumbu region. Some of the most notable peaks seen in close proximity from the top of Island Peak are Mt. Everest (8,848m), Mt. Lhotse (8,516m), Mt. Makalu (8,463m) and Mt. Ama Dablam. The views of the Ngozumpa Glacier, the largest in the region, are pretty amazing from here.The other main attractions of the Island peak climbing experience are trekking to two of the most iconic viewpoints of Everest region – Everest Base Camp (5,087m) and Kala Paththar (5,555m). From these viewpoints, several 8000m peaks like the Everest, Cho Oyu, Makalu, and Lhotse will appear at mere distance.

The 18-day-long Island peak climbing ,journey begins with a scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla in Khumbu region. It is also known as the gateway to Everest region. From Lukla, we will begin our trek northward gradually towards the Khumbu Valley passing through beautiful Himalayan hamlets like Phakding, Namche, and Lobuche. On our way towards the summit, we will stop for a thorough exploration of Everest Base Camp and Kalapathhar. The Island Peak climbing ascent will be undertaken with great caution and safety in the safe hands of our experienced team of guides. All the requirements such as clearing the path and fixing the rope will be done with great expertise. Once you make it to the top, you will be rewarded with panoramic views of the encircling mountain range. The return journey will be much easier comparatively with few shorter climbs and trek through the forests to reach the famous Tengboche Monastery. From there, we will subsequently trek down to Lukla, from where we will board a flight to Kathmandu.

At Team Himalaya, we are absolutely dedicated to make your peak climbing experience a safe and memorable one.

An adventure of a great combination Everest base camp with exciting Island Peak Climb. It was so wonderful and hard to describe, where trekkers have to join with Team Himalaya to experience this marvelous adventure.
The guide and team of staff with strong porters was just fabulous. Which made the adventure more exciting and worth joining for, one of the best trek and climb that one can join in. The company was very supportive from the start to the end of the adventure, although a tough climb to Island Peak. The weather and the expert guide made it possible, enjoyed every moment of the trip.

Truly the best mountaineering experience ever of my life time adventure, it was harder than I expected. But made it the top, the weather was fine and clear in the early morning of May. Probably the best and right time to choose for the climb I felt like standing on top of the world. Overlooking stunning views of giant peaks that surrounded the summit of Island Peak facing view of Mt. Everest, Lhotse and 
Mt. Makalu. The whole credit to our successful climb goes to our expert guide who make the whole trip enjoyable. Always supportive taking care of the whole group and making the climb much accessible through his guidance.

Trip Highlights

  • In the high Khumbu valley around Everest region with great views.
  • A scenic super short flight to and from Lukla with parallel mountains.
  • Unique experience of a life time with a climb of Island Peak.
  • Visiting worlds highest Everest Base Camp &Kalapathar top.
  • In the country of rich Buddhist culture and traditions and warm hospitality.

Island Peak climbing, which stands tall at an elevation of 6,198m, is the most popular climbing peak in Nepal among 326 peaks currently permitted for climbing and mountaineering. Also known as the Imja Tse in the local Sherpa language, the peak is situated between the picturesque Khumbu region and Imsa Tse Valley. The mountain was named Island Peak by celebrated British mountaineer, Sir Eric Shipton as it looks like an island from afar amidst the icy alpine water.Located in the Sagarmatha National Park, Island Peak climbing is an extension of a peak coming down from the southern face of Mt. Lhotse Shar. Its first successful expedition was carried out in 1956 by a Swiss expedition group as a practice climb before ascending Mt Everest. Since then it has been a favorite as a go-to peak among mountaineers and climbers alike. The peak is described as a perfect climbing peak if you are looking for a perfect strike of balance between fun, adventure, and adrenaline rush.From the top of Island Peak, we can have the most amazing views of the mountain ranges of the Khumbu region. Some of the most notable peaks seen in close proximity from the top of Island Peak are Mt. Everest (8,848m), Mt. Lhotse (8,516m), Mt. Makalu (8,463m) and Mt. Ama Dablam. The views of the Ngozumpa Glacier, the largest in the region, are pretty amazing from here.The other main attractions of the Island peak climbing experience are trekking to two of the most iconic viewpoints of Everest region – Everest Base Camp (5,087m) and Kala Paththar (5,555m). From these viewpoints, several 8000m peaks like the Everest, Cho Oyu, Makalu, and Lhotse will appear at mere distance.

The 18-day-long Island peak climbing ,journey begins with a scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla in Khumbu region. It is also known as the gateway to Everest region. From Lukla, we will begin our trek northward gradually towards the Khumbu Valley passing through beautiful Himalayan hamlets like Phakding, Namche, and Lobuche. On our way towards the summit, we will stop for a thorough exploration of Everest Base Camp and Kalapathhar. The Island Peak climbing ascent will be undertaken with great caution and safety in the safe hands of our experienced team of guides. All the requirements such as clearing the path and fixing the rope will be done with great expertise. Once you make it to the top, you will be rewarded with panoramic views of the encircling mountain range. The return journey will be much easier comparatively with few shorter climbs and trek through the forests to reach the famous Tengboche Monastery. From there, we will subsequently trek down to Lukla, from where we will board a flight to Kathmandu.

At Team Himalaya, we are absolutely dedicated to make your peak climbing experience a safe and memorable one. The itinerary has been intricately made to ensure proper acclimatization to the unforgiving Himalayan terrains. Your safety is our first and foremost priority and our team of professional climbers, guides, and porters with years of experience in the field will lead you to an unforgettable peak climbing journey.

What should I do about drinking water?

Your major source of drinking water is bottled water. Apart from that, purified and filtered and boiled water is available in the teahouses and lodges.

What are the problems that may arise on the altitude?

It depends on the peak that you choose and also the condition of the weather. Generally, it requires one or two days to summit the peak. Some other factors such as peak elevation and location might also affect the time to reach the summit.

Trip Reviews (2)

An adventure of a great combination Everest base camp with exciting Island Peak Climb. It was so wonderful and hard to describe, where trekkers have to join with Team Himalaya to experience this marvelous adventure.
The guide and team of staff with strong porters was just fabulous. Which made the adventure more exciting and worth joining for, one of the best trek and climb that one can join in. The company was very supportive from the start to the end of the adventure, although a tough climb to Island Peak. The weather and the expert guide made it possible, enjoyed every moment of the trip.

Truly the best mountaineering experience ever of my life time adventure, it was harder than I expected. But made it the top, the weather was fine and clear in the early morning of May. Probably the best and right time to choose for the climb I felt like standing on top of the world. Overlooking stunning views of giant peaks that surrounded the summit of Island Peak facing view of Mt. Everest, Lhotse and 
Mt. Makalu. The whole credit to our successful climb goes to our expert guide who make the whole trip enjoyable. Always supportive taking care of the whole group and making the climb much accessible through his guidance. 
 Thanks to Team Himalaya and all trekking, camping staff, porters and to cheerful strong porters, and our good guide.
