Located on top of the Chukung glacier between Ama Dablam and Lhotse Mountains, Island Peak is the most sought after trekking destination because of its challenging geographical conditions. This peak trek offers an excellent opportunity to not only climb a Himalayan Summit [6173m] but also provides the chance to cross off some other bucket-list dreams such as Everest Base Camp [5367m] and Kala Pattar [5550m]. The most difficult section is a mixed rock and ice wall at a slope of around 45 degrees leading to the narrow summit ridge… This adrenaline-packed adventure is perfect for those who are physically fit who desire an all-round trekking and climbing experience. Island Peak is not considered a technical climb and prior climbing experience is not required to successfully complete the trip. Our highly experienced professional crew comprising registered climbing guides will support you to safely achieve your dream through well timed gradual ascents. Island Peak is one of the main climbing peaks in the Everest Region with an impressive and highly glaciated West Face that rises from the Lhotse Glacier. Come and experience the magic for yourself!
These treks typically require you to do 6-7 hours each day over steep hilly terrain on usually rough trails but with no real extremes of weather. Treks in this category can include trekking to elevations of up to 5500m with daily ascends of around 400-700m.When trekking at higher altitudes, your body needs to adjust to lower levels of oxygen and this provides added physical challenge to the trek. It is important to be physically fit and to prepare your body by doing regular exercise prior to embarking on your trek. Previous hiking or camping experience is preferable.
Although the climbing expeditions do not require you to be an athlete, you must be fit and healthy before embarking on the expedition. Training and equipment for technical elements are provided.
