Expedition to Island Peak with Everest Base Camp trek
Island peak is also known as Imja Tse is often the first step for most of the climbers before any summit attempt of giant peaks in the Himalaya. After checking all the gear and exploring the sights and sounds of bustling Kathmandu, we take an exciting flight to the STOL airport of Lukla to begin our journey to Island peak climbing with Everest base camp hike. We climb the less trodden trail to the Everest base camp and Kalapathar for proper acclimatization on the way to Island peak base camp. We customize a special climbing training session at the base camp where you will receive training from our experienced climbing guides on required climbing skills to scale the summit safely and successfully.
Summit day – standing on top of Island Peak at 6189 meter
The Island peak climbing summit day starts very early in the morning with an interesting scramble along a rock ridge to a glacier. Above the rock ridge there is a steep snow head wall leading to the summit, off course this is a physically challenging but a great day of achievement. Our permanent and highly experienced climbing guides fix NEW ropes to ensure safe ascent with jumar and harness for the strenuous and challenging section that climbs up a 60 – 70 degree face about 100 meters to the summit ridge. From the top of Island peak, you can see a breathtaking panorama of gigantic mountains – Nuptse (7,879m), Lhotse (8,501m), Lhotse central (8,410m) and Lhotse Shar (8,383m) which form a semi circle in the north and the stunning views of Makalu (8475m), Baruntse (7129m) in the east and famous expedition peak of Amadablam (6812m) in the south – a never to be forgotten experience of Island peak climb with Everest base camp in the Himalayas.
