Trip Introduction

Imja Tse peak or also popularly known as Island Peak stands tall with modest height of 6,189m. English Mountaineer Eric Shipton named it as an Island Peak in 1953. He thought it resembles an island in a sea of ice seeing it from Dingboche. In 1983, Island Peak again got its new name as Imja Tse. Island peak climbing is done along with the Everest Base Camp Trek. With very little technical aspects, it offers itself even to the beginner climber with competitive endurance. Hence, it is one of the most popular choices among the 6000m. Island Peak welcomes hundreds of climber group each year luring them to its peak.

Island Peak trek spans of around 16 days. The trip begins after landing in Lukla airport. Spending couple of nights in Namche Bazaar the climbers acquaint gradually before actually climbing the Island Peak. It takes four to five days to reach the Base camp of Island Peak. Here in the base camp climbers have to familiarize themself with the climatic condition before actually pushing themself to the summit. The ascent to the top starts off with along a ridge where climbers use foot traction device popularly known as crampons along with a rope to elevate upwards. The way across the glacier is easy with occasional fractures in them. After reaching the top, exquisite view of Lhotse Shar, Makalu, Baruntse and Ama Damblam is seen. This peak was first ascended by Tenzing Norgay who was a part of British Team preparing for the Everest Triumph.
