Island Peak Climbing

Island Peak stands at a height of 6189m also referred to as Imja Tse, located in the Everest region only a few miles away from Mt. Everest. The name “Island Peak” was given in 1953 because of its appearance as an island in a sea of ice when viewed from Dingboche. It is one of the popular mountaineering programs in Nepal as comparatively considered an easier expedition than others. Island Peak lies in the heart of the Khumbu region in the Sagarmatha National Park, standing in between Ama Dablam and Lotse peaks. Therefore, you can witness majestic views of Himalayan ranges, Buddhist monasteries, prayer rocks, and amazing glaciers on the way to Island Peak.

Besides that, you can get breathtaking views of other Himalayan ranges such as Nuptse Peak, Lotse Peak, Lotse Shar, Mt. Makalu, and Ama Dablam. Along with all the different mountain ranges you can experience the picturesque Sherpa village and its culture. Apart from that, climbing is considered as one of the toughest peak climbers as witnessed by former climbers. It is dangerous to go there without having experienced guidance. One has to take all the climbing gear with medical kits to avoid further incidents. The temperature also falls down to a range of – 5°c to – 25°c during the night on the island peak.

Also, you need a climbing permit to enter Sagarmatha National Park as well as Island Peak. If you are ready to get lifetime experience, then note down Island Peak climbing on your bucket list.
