Island Peak Climbing

Island Peak Climbing – 21 Days

This is one great peak for climbing, despite the technical difficulties we come by. This is a peak that gives you a true sense of adventure. Geographically placed in the gorgeous Everest region, ‘Imja Tse’, which is another name for ‘Island peak’ is a challenging peak among all of the climbing peaks in Nepal. The altitude of island peak is just 6173m. When we climbing island peak, our route takes a very difficult path to the top via the Chhukung Glacier, and this is where the technical drills get tough. The geographical trail between Mt. Lhotse and Mt. Amadablam poses problems on reaching the summit of Island Peak. However, From Dingboche, the sights look similar to an island jutting out from a sea of ice; and this is how island gets its name.

Our trip for Island peak starts with a scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and similarly ends at Lukla. After cutting across Everest base camp we reach Lhotse Shar, a well known trekking trail we come across on our path to island peak. This is what makes Island peak more famous in comparison to other peaks. Another vital trail is Gokyo Valley which is also what we experience when hiking up to Island peak. We don’t have to walk lengthy distances on the trail of Island Peak but the jagged rocks and an ice wall with narrow summit ridges puts our skills to the test while clambering up. We don’t need to worry much about the high altitudes because our climbing will have much acclimatisation on the way. While climbing island peak, we also get the opportunity to climb some unknown peaks in the Khumbu region…this peak sure gives us the joys of climbing peaks of an unique identity…
