Island Peak Climbing with Everest Base Camp Trek – 21 Days

  • Island Peak Climbing with Everest Base Camp

Island Peak Climbing with Everest Base Camp Trek offers an ultimate Himalayan trekking and peak climbing experience. Island peak is regarded as an ideal climbing peak for beginners and perfect acclimatizing trip before heading for Everest expedition. Standing tall at an altitude of 6189m near Mt. Everest, Island peak offers you the best ever panoramic views of snow capped mountains around Everest region.

Island peak, actually an extension of south end of Mt. Lhotse Shar stands as a spectacular peak amid the giants of the Himalaya. Situated only about 10 km away from the Mt. Everest, the summit of Island peak provides 360 degree panorama of many of the highest mountains in the world. If you want to take next step from trekking to mountaineering, climbing Island peak is the perfect ice climbing trip to try first among the 33 “trekking peaks” of Nepal. Although Himalayan Peaks should not be underestimated, Island Peak has the potential to offer the fit and experienced hill walkers a window into the world of mountaineering in the greater ranges.

Our Island Peak Climbing and EBC trekking adventure is designed to provide trekking and a little forward, i.e. first stage mountaineering experience to adventure lovers. This adventurous program starts in Kathmandu. We spend a day in Kathmandu preparing for the venture with brief UNESCO heritage sites visit. We take an exhilarating flight to Lukla and start trekking the classic Everest base camp trekking trail through the Sherpa villages of Phakding, Namche, Tengboche, Dingboche, Lobuche and Gorekshep while spending two nights in Namche and Dingboche to acclimatize. We trek to Everest base camp to acclimatize ourselves for our Island peak climbing target. We also trek up to Kala Patthar for best views of Everest and its neighboring peaks well as for acclimatization. Then we trek back to Chhukung and progress towards the Island peak climbing. We trek to Island peak base camp, learn and revise our knowledge of using climbing equipment and our climbing skills. We spend a night in base camp. Next day is the toughest day but as we reach the summit, we realize the reward we get from the top is worth the effort. The ascent begins with a scramble up a rocky gully to a ridge where we put on crampons and rope up for the glacier crossing heading towards the south ridge. The route across the glacier is easy-angled, but it can be crevassed in places. From the bergshrund at the base of the headwall, 100m of snow and ice, as steep as 45° is climbed to arrive on the airy summit ridge. This is followed to the top, where you can enjoy fabulous views of Lhotse Shar, Makalu’s west face, the north face of Baruntse and Ama Dablam’s north ridge and many other mountains.

This adventure requires good level of physical fitness with enthusiasm towards trekking, exploring and peak climbing.  Although it is not mandatory to have prior training for Island Peak Climbing, we strongly believe that some training will boost your confidence and climbing skills to increase the chances of scaling the summit safely together with a fun experience.
