Island Peak at the altitude of 6,189 meters is one of the most popular trekking peaks in Nepal. Also known as Imja Tse, the peak lies within the Khumbu region, under the shadows of Mount Everest and Lhotse peaks.
Island Peak is one of the best trekking peaks in Nepal. Most climbers take on Island peak to prepare themselves for the big league, Eight-Thousander. It’s a mildly technical peak, however, the experience of using ice-axe and crampon is a must. The trek begins at Lukla and slowly advances up to Chhukung village. From here you move to the base camp and later the summit. A 2 days climb can be quite an achievement for amateur climbers.
Sagarmatha National Park and Tengboche Monastery are the highlights of this trip. You will get to experience the Sherpa lifestyle, culture and meals along with climbing one of the most popular trekking peaks in Nepal.
Note: Keep a grace day to ensure you climb the summit even if you fail to do so the first day because of bad weather.
Requires prior experience of high-altitude trekking. The altitude may get over 6000 m and may require some climbing skills, such as; cramponing, ice-axing etc.
Comfortable tourist-class accommodations with character; mix of public and private transport. Star Standard meals at Kathmandu!
