Island Peak Climbing

Overview and Highlights

Island Peak Climbing is one of the easiest peak climbing among the Himalaya ranges of Nepal. Island Peak [6,189m] is one of the major climbing peaks of the Everest Region. The name to the peak was provided as it lies in the middle of Chhukung Valley like an island in the sea of ice when viewed from Dingboche. It was named in the year 1952. In the early 80’s, it was renamed to “Imje Tse”. However the previous is still more popular that the later one. This peak climbing is listed among the most demanded route for peak climbing in Nepal.

Our systematically designed itinerary takes you to the most suitable altitude first at the Everest Base Camp and Kalapathar for an exquisite panoramic close up view of Mount Everest. Before climbing the peak, the views of the mountain make it more inspiring and motivating to do so. Besides, the 3 dimensional views of Lhotse, Baruntse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam and Makalu feel right on the tip of your nose from here.

Imje Tse was first climbed by a Swiss team in the year 1956 as an exercise trip preparation to conquer Mount Everest and Lhotse. To climb to the summit of the peak, one has two options to do so. The first option is to start from the Base Camp at Pareshaya Gyab [5,087m]. The second option is to elevate to the High Camp [5,600] to cut down the additional effort and time.
