Island Peak Climbing

Trip Overview

Island Peak, also locally known as ImjaTse, is the most popular trekking peak of the Everest region in Nepal. The name itself suggests that this peak looks like an Island being surrounded in a sea of ice when it is seen from Dingboche. The climbing trip to Island Peak starts with an exhilarating mountain flight to Lukla airstrip. From Lukla, we slowly ascend to northward, through Namche Bazaar and finally reach the Island Peak Base Camp where we prepare for next day climbing. The summit day begins very early morning with an interesting scramble along a rocky ridge to a glacier. Above the rock ridge, there is a steep snow headwall that leads straight to the summit. To step foot on the top of the peak is truly challenging but it would be a great day of achievement for climbers who summit it.

Island Peak summit looks eye-catching with a highly glaciated west face rising from the Lhotse Glacier. The ridge rising to the south leads to the top of Island Peak. The extension of this ridge to the southwest is the part of the normal route of ascent and leads to the South Summit. One can enjoy the amazing views of Mount Amadablam, Makalu, Lhotse Shar and. Lhotse from the summit. However, before attempting this climb, climbers are advised to acclimatize by trekking to the Everest Base camp.

Tara Treks Nepal offers highly experienced and professional climbing Sherpa and guides to ensure safe ascent and summit along with the climbing permit and all other necessary logistics. This Island Peak Climbing package trip can be flexibly adjusted to our clients’ requirements. The safety and comfort of our clients is our first priority.
