Island peak  is also known as  Imja Tse that lies at 6189 meters above sea level. It is located on top of the Chukung glacier between Ama Dablam and Lhotse Mountain. This mountain was named "Island Peak" in 1952 AD, by a climbing team of Eric Shipton, due to its striking location in the middle of the Chhukung valley, like an Island on a sea of ice. Island peak was first ascended in 1953 by a British team as preparation for climbing Everest. Island Peak climbing fulfills the dreams and goals of both amateur and serious climbers alike, seeking the thrill of adventure and the wish to take on an adventure climbing trip beyond simply trekking in Everest.

Your meeting time with our climbing Guide is estimated at 5:00 PM at this evening. After Introduction; our climbing guide will check your climbing gear and brief your upcoming Island Peak Climbing with us. Remaining time explore yourself and over night at Chhukung.

Day 02: Chhukung -Island Peak Base camp Altitude: 5,200m/17,060ft Distance of walking: 3-4 hours

Today after breakfast, we heads further on to the steep way climbing southern part then turning east to the main line of the valley. Continue short pleasant walking along a streamside leads to the Big –rock and the route to the Amphu Lapcha lies to the southeast from here. A mid difficult cross route through the Imja and Lhotse glacier moraines leads you to a wide valley flanking of Island peak where we will set up our base camp for over night at tented camp.

Day 03: Island Peak Base Camp to High Camp Altitude: 5,600m/18,372ft Distance of climbing: 2-3 hours

This morning we packed our camping stuff and we'll head on to the High camp from where we start our climb. As you climb the hill, you will see that the slope narrows and the path enter a steep rock channel nearby where we'll overnight at camp. This is where our guide will fix crampons on your climbing boots and re-check the entire climbing group and personal equipment once again for better safety. If required, you may learn last minute climbing technique with our climbing Sherpa at this stage. If possible, you will be also taken for the ice/rock climbing near by but subject to the availability. Over night at High Camp

Day 04: High camp to summit to Chhukung Altitude: 6,189m/20,305ft Distance of climbing: 8-10 hours

Early morning through the rock gully; we start our climb. This is not difficult but there are several short rock steps to climb before you emerge on the right side of the drain. The route follows a ridgeline, which leads to an exhilarating and exposed traverse onto the snout of the summit glacier. You will need to rope up for the glacier as it contains several crevasses but it leads without difficulty, to a 100m/330ft snow and ice slope (40-45 degree) on which the guides will fix a rope. From the top of this slope, 3 rope lengths along a sharp summit ridge lead to the top. You can enjoy with success and brave to get a summit and after some picture taking of scenic view will descend all the way to Chhukung for over night at tea house. Final commence about the trip and after this you will be yourself again for rest of your trekking back to lukla.
