Overview

The climb to the Island Peak summit along with Everest Base Camp Trek is an adventurous trail in the Himalayas of Nepal. This voyage is an ideal mix of trekking and climbing in the Khumbu region. So, it is appropriate for enthusiastic and physically healthy climbers.

Island Peak, also known as ‘Imja Tse,’ is located in the Sagarmatha National Park in Eastern Nepal. The British Mount Everest Expedition gave the peak the name ‘Island Peak’ in 1953. When viewed from Dingboche, the peak appears to be an island surrounded by a sea of ice. In 1983, the summit was called Imja Tse. It is, however, generally known as the Island Peak.

This quest offers majestic views of mountains like Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Nuptse, and other stunning peaks. Not only that you get the opportunity to stand beneath the lap of the highest mountain – Mt. Everest. Along the journey, the trail passes through the lively village of Sherpa Villages with the scenic beauty of adventurous landscapes, woodlands, splashing rivers, glaciers, and many more.

Before attempting the summit, you trek along the popular trekking trails of the Everest region. The trek takes place from Lukla after a scenic flight from Kathmandu. With proper acclimatization, you head towards Tengboche through Namche Bazaar. Hereafter, first, you’ll head towards the Everest Base Camp and arrive in Gorakshep for the panoramic mountain views. Then, the journey aims for the summit of the Island Peak.
