Tour Details

At 6189m, island peak is one of the smaller trekking peaks, but it is a challenge two-to three-day ascent using ice axes and crampons. The reward for all this execration is an unparallel view of Ama Dablam and the south face of Lhotse. The peak sits at the end of the Chhukung Valley, accessible from Dingboche, and most groups climb to Everest Base Camp first to help with acclimatization. most large trekking agencies run group ascents of Island Peak, but each group must pay an additions US$350 to US$610 fee to the Nepal Mountain Association  for obligatory climbing permit.   Island peak which is also known as Imja Tse peak is our top destination. It was named so because when it’s viewed from Dingboche, it resembles an isle in a sea of ice. Later in 1983, the peak was renamed as Lmja Tse. The peak is appealing and beautiful with a decidedly glaciated west face rising from the Lhotse Glacier. The summit of Island Peak is led by the ridge rising to the south of that point. Island Peak not only offers you the pleasant hike but also provides you the extreme original and elegant sceneries of Himalayas that you have never experienced in your life before.
