Island Peak Climbing with EBC 18 Days
Island peak, also known as Imja Tse (6189m), is one of the attractive destinations in Everest region for a combined trekking and peak climbing adventure. From Dingboche village near Everest Base Camp, we can see the sharp peak of a mountain called Island Peak. Climbing the peak is an adventure that offers a chance to experience Himalaya from very close. Normally the South-East Flank and the South-West Ridge are the major routes for ascending Island peak. The base camp is usually located at Pareshaya Gyab (5,087m), between Imja Tse and Imja Glacier, the glacier of Island peak. What's special about this summit is that you will be able to see some mountains, like Lhotse, really close, and catch a view of eight thousanders like Mt. Makalu. You will get to enjoy the beautiful and scenic mountain range of Khumbu with lots of mountains like Barunste, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, Kangtega, Pokalde and lots of others. Island peak summit is also used as a training course for Mount Everest expedition. Due to its climatic and environmental similarity to Everest, most mountaineers climb Island peak before they go for the Roof of the World, the mighty Everest.
For this climbing adventure we have a core team consisting of a climbing guide, trekking guide and kitchen staff. Our guides are experienced Himalaya guides, trained to function in all conditions. Your safety is our number one priority, and if you have any questions or concerns you are encouraged to discuss with your guides. Climbing Island peak is a strenuos activity and for a successful summit, you need to be in very good physical and mental condition. Previous high altitude trekking experience is recommended, and previous technical mountain climbing skills are an advantage.
