Island peak

About the climb

Island Peak is one of the most climbed 6000-meter peaks in Nepal. It is situated beside the Imja Lake and above the Sherpa settlement of Chukung in the upper part of the Everest region, 6165m.

The goal of this trip is to stand on top of Island peak and look out over the magnificent environment in the heart of the Himalayas. Around us we have giants like Mount Everest, Cho Oyu and Ama Dablam. This tour can also be combined with a trek to Mount Everest base camp and an ascent of Kala Pathar, 5545m. In this way, you are well acclimatized and prepared for your climb to the top of Island Peak.

Before the climb, we rehearse climbing techniques in base camp so that you feel fully prepared and confident before climbing. It is a non-technical mountain, but it is a great challenge and It´s important to be well prepared.

Welcome to the home of the Sherpas and climb with us up to the foot of the world’s highest mountain Mount Everest and to the top of Island Peak. A memory for life.

 

Definitely an adventure out of the ordinary. Well organized and world class guides. A memory for life.

Climbing a mountain in the Himalayas is something few are blessed with. To also do it opposite Mount Everest with a view of some of the world’s highest mountains is unique. A rare experience.

The climbing on Lobuche is very nice. If you´ll do the east summit I promise you that I will help you reach the summit.

Date and price

The best time to climb Island Peak is during the spring and autumn when at other times there is a monsoon period with large amounts of precipitation and poor visibility. If you wish, it is possible to combine this tour with a hike to Mount Everest Base Camp and the top of Kala Pathar.
