Island peak climbing

Imjatse, popularly known an Island peak is very well knew trekking peak in Nepal. It offers an exhilarating experience of those who want some more adventure beyond just trekking. Standing at 6189 meters after striving hard on the ice definitely makes you feel the triumph of climbing Mt. Everest! This Peak is not technically challenging but of course physically demanding, also graded as Alpine PDT.

After checking the climbing gears and exploring the sights of the Kathmandu city, we take a thrilling flight to Lukla, where our journey to Island peak starts, with E.B.C. trek. We will take the less crowded trail to go to EBC and Kalapathar to get well acclimatized for Island peak. We organize a special training session at the base camp where you will be trained from our climbing guide on required climbing skills to scale the summit.

Summit Day

The day starts very early with an interesting scramble along a glacier from a rock ridge. There is a steep snow head wall above the rock ridge that leads to the summit. This is of course a physically challenging phenomenon but your great day of achievement. Our peak expert guides fix new ropes to ensure 100 percent safe ascend with harness and jumar for the challenging and strenuous section of the climb. This section climbs up 65 degree face about the last 100 meters of the summit ridge. The breath taking view from the summit is the reward for your all courage and physical efforts to drag yourself there. You can see a stunning panorama of massive Himalayan peaks-Lhotse  (8516 meters)- Lhotse central (8401 meters), Nuptse (7873 meters) which crate a semi-circle towards north and the view of Baruntse (7129 meters), Makalu (8463 meters) and famous peak of Amadablam (6812 meters) in the southern are.
