Island Peak (6.189 m) is one of the most popular climbing peaks in the Everest region, with its impressive glaciated west wall, which rises from the Lhotse Glacier. This tour is designed for experienced and physically fit adventurers who want to experience both trekking and climbing at the same time.
Our adventure begins with a short flight to Lukla and two days of easy walking to Namche Bazaar. From there we will continue through the high valleys of the Khumbu region to Everest Base Camp (5.357 m) and to the viewpoint on Kala Patar (5.545 m), where we will enjoy the classic view on Everest’s southwest face, Lhotse, Nuptse, and the Khumbu Icefall.
The climb will also support acclimatization for Island Peak. After the summit ascent of Island Peak we will take the classic Khumbu route down via Tengboche and Namche Bazaar to Lukla. From there we will fly back to Kathmandu on the next day.
Our Island Peak tour is carefully planned. We always offer extra breaks and acclimatization days so that you will always stay fit and healthy. However, for this tour you should have very good mountain hiking experience, good climbing experience, surefootedness, and a head for heights.
