Nepal Adventure Trip

Island Peak Climbing

Island Peak ClimbingThe mountain was named “Island Peak’ in 1952 due to its striking location in the middle of the Chhukung Valley. Like an Island on a sea of ice. It was named “Imja Tse” in the early ‘80s, though its original name is still more popular. Mt. Everest is its main trekking rout of Island Peak. It is located at the altitude of (6189m).Their rich culture and they are preserving heritage even though there is noticeable development in the region influenced by the visiting Climbing’s There are wild goat musk deer, pheasants, and Himalayan cock in the higher places.

You will be trekking the colorful grandeur of the high mountain valleys via sub-tropical pine, rhododendron forests with the views of Mt Everest (8848m) Cho- Oyu, Lhotse, and Ama Dablam etc.You will be visit local monasteries, and you will witness Sherpa culture and hospitality. Namche Bazaar (3,440m) is the hometown of the Sherpa and is the gateway of all expeditions in the region. This is a strenuous trek in the Everest Region, crossing the Chola Pass, and ascending Kalapathar lets you acclimatize fully before you attempt the final summit of the Island Peak (Imja Tse). It is normally a non-technical snow climb, except one steep ice or snow climb of about 100 Meters and then to the final ascent of the Peak. This trek offers an excellent opportunity to climb a Himalayan Summit (6173m) together with an exhilarating Trek to the Everest Base Camp and Kala Pattar. The most difficult section is a mixed rock and ice wall at a slope of around 45 degrees leading to the narrow summit ridge. With ponderous memories of the trekking earlier done, we retrace our route back through Namche to Lukla, and from there on we fly back to Kathmandu.

Island Peak is probably the easiest and most affordable way for you to obtain high-altitude experience and see how you feel at (6,000m)/20,000 feet. It is also a beautiful place to take an up-close look at the high peaks around Everest.
