Island Peak Climbing

Trip Overview of Island Peak Climbing

Island peak has altitude of 6,189 meters also known as Imja Tse. This is one of the popular trekking peaks in Nepal for climbing in the heart of the Everest Himalayas. The name is because it is seen as an island peak in the sea of ice. Imja Tse has some of t he most spectacular views of the Himalayas in Khumbu region. Other mountains seen from the summit are giant Everest (8,848 meters), Nuptse(7,879m),  Lhotse (8,516m),  Lhotse Middle Peak (8,410m) and Lhotse Shar (8,383m).

For advanced beginner or intermediate climbers, Island provides platform to prepare for a big Himalaya expedition in Nepal. It helps to acclimatize before heading to bigger mountain to climb. IT is one of the most popular and demanding trekking peak in Nepal. Trek through the Himalayan Khumbu can be done for acclimatizing island peak climbing. The simple route for climbing Island Peak is South East Flank & South-West Ridge. The Island Peak base camp is Pareshaya Gyab (5,087m) and this lies between Imja Tse and the lateral moraine of the Imja Glacier. Trekkers should be aware of possible avalanche because of the heavy snow fall.

The finest time for Island peak climbing is  early March to late May and early September to late December when the weather is favorable for the trekkers.
