Overview

Island Peak is one of the most popular 6,000+ m climbing peaks in Nepal. This 20 day expedition itinerary ensures you acclimatise gradually whilst trekking up the Khumbu Valley to Everest base camp and gradually progressing before reaching the summit of Island Peak.The peak is actually an extension of the ridge coming down off the south end of Lhotse Shar. Imja Tse is a popular mountaineering objective for climbers in Nepal, with its standard climbing route having the difficulty rating of Alpine PD.

Island peak climbing technicality

Island Peak is graded PD alpine mountain which has some technical climbing and complicated glaciers. The final route includes basic rock scrambling, roped glacier crossings, a steep snow/ice wall on fixed ropes and exposed final summit ridge. Any clients undertaking this trip should have some basic mountaineering experience which includes rock scrambling and walking on snow/ice with ice axe and crampons. It is highly recommended that you should have attended a basic winter or alpine courses with use of ice axe and crampons as this provides the basic technical knowledge for attempting the final summit. A basic skills day will be included on the trip, but this is more intended to refresh knowledge.
