Explore the land of world’s highest mountains, towering altitude lakes and icy glaciers! While making an expedition to Island Peak you travel to the heart of the Sherpaland and enjoy some of the most spectacular scenery of the Himalayas. From the summit of Island peak – literally “Island in a sea of ice” you stare at the giant peaks of Nuptse (7 879m), Lhotse (8 501m), Makalu (8 475m), Baruntse and Ama Dablam (6 814 m). After spending an acclimatization day in Namche Bazaar and visiting the Buddhist monastery of Tengboche you gently climb up towards the Khumbu glacier and Everest Base Camp where you enjoy brilliant vistas from Kala Patthar (5 545 m) over Mount Everest and the other highest mountains of the world. Before we climb up to Island (Imja Tse) Base Camp we descend to Dingboche and perch into the Chhukung valley. We attempt to reach the 6 189 m high summit after staying one night at the high camp perched on the south west ridge. From the base camp, the trek to the summit involves some steep sections, where the use of crampons, ice-axe and ropes are necessary. Our highly experienced guides bring you to the summit. The climb to Island Peak is challenging but attainable for a beginning alpine climber. The summit ridge provides one of the most aesthetic mornings that a Himalayan climber could dream of.
