Island Peak climbing is an exciting journey in the Khumbu region of Nepal that offers incredible views of Mt Everest (8848 m) and other ranges of snowcapped peaks. Island peak (Imja Tse 6189m) is the most popular climbing peak in Nepal.

Climbing island peak is a great adventure for beginners (amateur climbers) and also to the hardy mountaineers. Observing from Dingboche, the mountain has a similar appearance as that of an island in the sea of ice so named as Island peak by Eric Shipton in 1952.

Island peak with Everest base camp includes trekking to Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar before the climb, allowing proper acclimatization, with enough rest days for practice. The adventure starts with a short flight to Lukla and then heading higher to the nice villages of Everest region, visiting monasteries and interesting Sherpa cultures of Buddhist religion. After summiting Island peak, you will trace down to Lukla to finish the journey by flying back to Kathmandu.

Anyone, even without prior experience can climb this peak depending on how strong their self-motivation and passion is. Spring and Autumn season are the best times to climb the Island peak.
