Island Peak (6160m) is one of the most popular climbing peaks in Nepal. This trek offers an excellent opportunity to climb Island peak (6160m) together with an exciting trek to the Everest Base Camp (5357m) and Kalapattar (5550m). The summit of the Island peak offers brilliant views of the giant Mt.Everest, Makalu, and Lhotse.
Island Peak Climbing
Island Peak Climbing at Lukla after flying from Kathmandu (Nepal’s Capital) to Lukla. We trek up the Dudh Kosi valley from Lukla, passing through Namche and Tengboche on our way to Kalapathar and Everest Base Camp. After being rested and feeling physically fit and acclimatized, we then head up the beautiful Imja Khola valley towards Island Peak. Besides trekking adventure, we also get to witness pristine Sherpa villages and ever-so-serene monasteries. Island Peak located on top of the Chhukhung glacier between Ama Dablam and Lhotse Mountains. To climb Island Peak, one has the option of starting from a base camp at 5,087 meters (16,690 ft) called Pareshaya Gyab. Another popular option is to ascend to High Camp at around 5,600 meters (18,400 ft) to reduce the amount of effort and time needed for summit day. However, adequate water supply and concerns about sleeping at a higher altitude may dictate starting from base camp. Basecamp to high camp is basically a hike but just above high camp, some rocky steps require moderate scrambling and up through a broad open gully. At the top of the gully, glacier travel begins and proceeds up to a steep snow and ice slope. From here, fixed ropes may be set up by the guides for the strenuous ascent of nearly 100 meters (330 ft) to the summit ridge. The climb to the summit is somewhat difficult due to steep climbing. The brilliant views 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.
After the summit the Island Peak, we return down through Namche to Lukla, and from there we back to Kathmandu by flight. This trip can be done during March to May and September to November.
