Island Peak, is locally known as Imja Tse, and it is one of the prominent climbing peaks situated in the Everest region of Nepal. The peak is located in the Sagarmatha National Park and stands at an elevation of 6,189 meters (20,305 feet). It was in 1952, that Eric Shipton gave the name “Island Peak” since the peak stands in the middle like an island in the sea of mountains around it including the fourth-highest mountain, Mt. Lhotse. You can have a clear of Island Peak from Dingboche. This 16-day Island peak climbing is basically for travelers who have tight time schedules. This short period of island peak climbing allows anyone with a busy schedule to experience the thrill of trekking and Climbing in Nepal.

Island Peak is a popular climbing destination for mountaineers and trekkers alike. 16-day Island Peak Climbing offers a challenging climb experience with stunning views of the surrounding Himalayan Mountains. These spectacular mountain views include Mount Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, and many more. However, climbing Island Peak does require some technical climbing skills and experience. So it is recommended that climbers have some prior mountaineering experience before attempting to climb the peak.

The climb to Island Peak typically takes around 20 days, starting with a trek to Everest Base Camp and then continuing on to the peak itself. However, this 16-day Island Peak Climbing skips the Everest Base Camp and takes you gradually to the base of Island Peak. The climb involves some technical climbing, including steep snow and ice slopes, and a final ridge climb to the summit. Despite the technical difficulties, Island Peak is considered a relatively achievable peak for anyone who is physically fit. It offers a unique and unforgettable climbing experience in the heart of the Himalayas.

Here is a brief history of Island Peak:

The climbing history of Island Peak dates back to 1953 when it was first climbed by a British expedition team led by Eric Shipton. The team consisted of four members: Charles Evans, Alf Gregory, Charles Wylie, and Tenzing Norgay, who later went on to become one of the first people to summit Mount Everest.

In 1983, a team of Nepalese climbers led by Ang Rita Sherpa became the first group to summit Island Peak in winter. Island Peak has become a popular trekking peak in Nepal, attracting thousands of climbers each year. It is a relatively easy climb compared to other peaks in the region, and climbers with basic mountaineering skills can attempt it.

Over the years Imja Lake at the base of Island Peak has been at risk of GLOF (Glacial Lake Outburst Floods). This is because with the now climate change issue there have been concerns about the impact of tourism and climate on the vulnerable surroundings of Island Peak. The local authorities have introduced measures to limit the number of climbers and to promote responsible tourism in the region.

Overall, Island Peak has a rich history and continues to attract climbers from around the world who are drawn to its stunning views and relatively easy ascent.

Island Peak Climbing Trip Summary:

This typical 16 Day Island peak Climbing starts from arriving in the city of Kathmandu. Next, we take the most thrilling flight to the airport of Lukla situated at the height of 2,840 m/9,317 ft. Gradually we head out to the settlement of Namche, the administrative center and the Capital of the Khumbu region. Namche is indeed a hidden paradise in the Himalayas with an outstanding view of Mt. Kongde. It is a town with almost all the desirable facilities with luxurious lodges, banks, and shopping stores including genuine brands, bars, bakeries, etc. Since acclimatization is a must we spent an extra night in this beautiful settlement of Namche.

Progressively, we move to higher elevation settlements like Phortse and Dingboche. Phortse happens to be one of the most beautiful terraced villages that give you a sense of serenity and delivers an exquisite mountain view. From Phortse we walk the high elevated hill-cut trail and then head to the settlement of Dingboche, the highest permanent settlement. You can literally view Island Peak from Dingboche and we spent an extra night here for acclimatization.

The next day we trek further to Island Peak base camp at the elevation of 5,000m - 16,404ft. At Island Peak base camp we provide you with a twin-sharing member tent and kitchen crew. Besides your group leader, our Cook, Climbing Sherpa, and their assistant will accompany you. Here, the cook is accountable for all the diverse meals. They are broadly trained in regard to hygiene, preparing meal variety, and presentation. Our accomplished climbing Sherpa will conduct a clinical course on required climbing skills and safety measures. Island peak expedition has always served as a preparation arena for mountaineers before scaling any high peaks.

    16-day Island Peak Climbing Detail Itinerary

    Please keep in mind that the provided 16-day Island Peak Climbing Detail Itinerary serves as a general guideline only.

    Flight Delay/Cancellation in Kathmandu and Lukla:

    The unpredictability of Flights flying to and from Lukla Airport, the gateway to Mount Everest, and the world’s most electrifying airport is pretty evident from its history of delays and cancellations. Diverse factors lead to the situation of cancellation including the weather, technical issues, poor visibility, etc. In such conditions, Nepal Pyramids will charter a helicopter to make certain that you don’t miss your trip or your international flight. But again under these circumstances, the possibility of flying a helicopter depends on the Nepal Civil Aviation flying rules.

Travelers will be provided with a receipt upon payment so that they may claim the amount from their travel insurance. The cost per person is governed by the number of people taking this facility.

    Why it is always wise to have an Additional Leisure Day???

    It is always wise to have an additional leisure day in Kathmandu as a contingency day in the case of Lukla – Kathmandu / vice-versa flight cancellation under certain circumstances.
