Island Peak Expedition is an admired peak expedition experience in the Everest region of Nepal. Rising 6,189m above the sea level, Island peak (also known as Imja Tse) is beautifully located in the middle of Chhukung valley, on top of the Chhukung Glacier between Mt. Lhotse and Ama Dablam. This peak, coming down as an extension of the ridge from the southern end of Lhotse Shar, sits like an island in the sea of ice. Therefore, it was named Island Peak by a climbing team of Eric Shipton in 1953. This peak is the best trekking peaks for adventure climbing.

33 peaks in Nepal are officially opened as trekking peaks. Among them, trek toIsland Peak is considered the most enlivening experience as this 250m rope climb to the apex not just offers spectacular views of the Himalayan range but also the pristine culture, tradition, and religion of the Sherpa people en route. The Island Peak summit offers a majestic view of peaks like Nuptse, Lhotse, Lhotse Middle, and Lhotse Shar (all over 8000m) forming a semi circle in the north while Mt. Makalu greets you in the east and Baruntse and Ama Dablam in the south. The trail also offers an exclusive opportunity to experience glacial moraines (Imja and Lhotse), suspension bridges, monasteries, prayer rocks, colorful settlements decorated with flags, and Sagarmatha National Park that features varieties of rare flora, fauna and birds. In addition to this, the warm hospitality offered by the Sherpa people makes the trail more enjoyable.  

Moreover, if you are looking to get the best value for your money, then there are two best times to climb Island peak: mid March-May (Spring) and mid September-November (Autumn), as the weather is comparatively warm and the view of the mountains is crystal clear. If you are planning your trek in winter (December-February), be ready to bear the chilling cold.

This trek is difficult, but not technical. Therefore, a physically fit and acclimatized person (amateur or serious climbers) with basic technique and information on mountaineering can opt for this trek in the Khumbu region. Those looking for more of a challenge can try another package, that is, Everest Base Camp with Island peak climbing. Moreover, climbing Pisang Peak is also another excellent selection of thrill seekers.

Moreover, the cost of Island peak climbing packages offered by Adventure Mountain Explore Treks & Expedition is very much affordable for every  climber seeking the most competitive rates ever.

 

Please Note: Due to obstructive weather conditions (even during the best trekking seasons), sometimes they may announce sudden changes regarding the previously provided domestic flight schedule to and from Lukla. Your plane many be delayed for a few hours or even few following days, entirely depending upon the weather condition. Therefore, Adventure Mountain Explore Treks & Expedition, kindly requests all the trekkers to add a few extra days to your plan. Nevertheless, if everything goes well, we can also make arrangements for you to enjoy other attractions like bungee jumping, jungle safari, rafting, shopping and so on.

Furthermore, trekker’s safety is always the top priority in any trek. Therefore, the team leader on duty is given every authority to make changes in the itinerary provided in case of unexpected weather change, the unsuitable health condition of a group member or an unforeseen natural disaster. If needed, team leader might also cancel any part of the itinerary. Hence, in such a situation we request you to co-operate with our team leader and remain flexible.

AME Treks heartily welcomes you to Nepal. Upon your arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA), you will be greeted by one of our company representatives who will further escort you to the hotel. Later that day (if possible) or the following day, a meeting is scheduled at our head office to brief you the details of your upcoming trek. Here, you will also be introduced to your trekking guides and Sherpas. If your flight arrives on time, a welcome dinner is also scheduled for you at one of the most popular local restaurant where you can enjoy Nepali food along with a glimpse of cultural music and ethnic dance. On request, dinner can also be postponed to the following day (as per your convenience).

Day 02: Sightseeing tour of various historical, natural and cultural world heritage sites in the Kathmandu Valley and trek preparation (1,300m/4,264ft)

Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal, itself offers a wide range of unique historical, natural and cultural sites. You will be guided to some of these sites for the purpose of sightseeing. The sites include the World heritage sites like Kathmandu Durbar Square – one of the most important historical structure that offers eye appealing architectural wonders, the Pashupatinath temple - a Hindu shrine dedicated to Lord Shiva (the lord that holds the power of destruction), Swyambhunath (Monkey Temple) and the Boudhanath Stupa – dedicated to Lord Buddha. However, you also have an option to skip one of these sites and visit another World Heritage site, ‘Patan Durbar Square’ along with Mahabouddha Temple, Kumbeshwor Temple, Krishna Temple and Golden Temple that simply offers some of the historical masterpieces to the connoisseurs of art. After spending 3-4 hours observing these beautiful sites, we will meet one more time to finalize your clothing and trekking gears (sleeping bag, down jacket and trekking boots). The evening will be spent in Kathmandu.

Day 03: Fly to Lukla and trek to Phakding (2,652m/8,700ft) 30 minutes flight and 4 hours walk

Early in the morning you will be escorted to Tribhuvan International Airport (in a private vehicle) to board a flight to Lukla (2,800m). After 30-35min scenic flight the plane will land at a Tenzing Hillary Airport in Lukla. Lukla is known as a gateway destination. A clear day normally offers a great aerial view of the terrain while you are in the sky.

 

On reaching Lukla Airport, you will be introduced to other crew members. Breakfast will be served at the lodge and luggage will also be prepared for the Porters. Shortly after this without wasting any time, the trek begins following the stone pathway downhill that leads you out of Lukla and towards Phakding.

 

We walk for four hours before we reach Phakding. This trail from Lukla to Phakding offers downhill and flat trail experience. Along the trail you can also experience prayer rocks (Mani in local language) and a splendid view of the colorful Lukla village. Upon reaching Phakding, you can freshen up and then our guides will take you for a short walk to the village or even hike up to the nearby Gompas (monasteries) for the purpose of acclimatization. We then get back to the lodge where the dinner is served. After dinner briefing regarding the following day’s trek will be made by the team leader. The night is spent at a lodge in Phakding.

Day 04: Trek to Namche Bazaar (3440m/11,283ft) 5-6 hours walk

After having breakfast, without wasting much time we set out from our lodge in Phakding and move towards Monju which is also known as the gateway to the Sagarmatha National Park. In between Phakding and Sagarmatha National Park you will get to experience the thrill offered by many suspension bridges, and the small settlements like Zapute, Toktok, Benkar, Chumoa and Monju. Here, you can also enjoy small tea houses and shops while your leader takes care of the necessary national park formalities at the entrance to the park. On entering the national park the trail drops steeply down to the river, crosses another suspension bridge and continues towards the high Hillary Bridge at the bottom of the hill. After the bridge the trail leads you uphill to the Namche Bazaar offering you the first great view of Mt. Everest, hidden behind Lhotse-Nuptse along with the view of Mt. Kusum Khangru. The night will be spent at a lodge in Namche Bazaar.

Day 05: Acclimatize day at Namche

Namche Bazaar, a gateway to the high Himalayas, is the main trading center and a tourist hub in the Khumbu region. This place is very popular for altitude acclimatization. Though this is a rest day it is highly recommended to keep moving and stay active for proper adaptation. Therefore, we organize a short hike to Thame, which is an old Sherpa village or visiting Khumjung/Khunde/Khongde is also considered a very good option to enhance acclimatization. Moreover, Namche Bazaar offers many ways to spend a day. You will have you enough time to visit the National Park Head office, Museum, and other monasteries. You can also have your own quality time at cafes, shops, bakeries or restaurants. The place also features other essential services like post office, hospital, government health post, 24 hour electricity and water supply and high speed internet access. You can also contact your family before heading towards the base of Everest Base Camp. This is night is also spent in a lodge in Namche Bazaar.

Day 06: Trek to Tengboche (3,867m/12684ft) 5 hours walk

Shortly after having breakfast at the lodge in Namche Bazaar, we continue to follow the trail along the hastening glacial waters of the Dudh Koshi. The trail offers dramatic views of Mt. Everest, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Lhotse and Mt. Ama Dablam along with the close up view of Thamserku. Before reaching Sanasa, you can also enjoy the blooming Rhododendron forest. If you are lucky you will also get a chance to spot wildlife musk deer, multi-colored pheasants and a herd of Himalayan Thar.  On reaching Sanasa, which is a major trail junction to Gokyo valley and Everest Base Camp, we take a steep ascent that will lead us to the famous Tengboche monastery (the largest Gompa in the Khumbu region of Nepal) which is draped with a spectacular view of the Himalayan Mountains. We spend our night at a lodge in Tengboche.

Day 07: Trek to Dingboche (4,358m/14,295 ft) 5-6 hours walk

After having breakfast, we again start the usual hike walk. This time, we first hike half an hour downhill to the riverside then through the lush forest, across the river and finally climb up to Pangboche (3,860m/12,664ft). Here you can experience magnificent Chorten and Mani walls. We then ascend to Pheriche and from here a moderate walk will lead you to the Imja Valley. From here, we climb the last and the steepest climb of the day and finally reach Dingboche. The night is spent at the lodge in Dingboche.

Day 08: Acclimatized day

This is the final, yet the mandatory acclimatization day before heading towards Island Peak. Dingboche is a summer settlement that offers a magnificent view of Mt. Ama Dablam, Mt. Lhotse and numerous other peaks, from the ridge on the north behind the village. You can also observe the Imja River that flows directly east of the village. Another interesting thing about this village is, the kilometers of stone walls that cover the entire valley of Imja. You will also be surprised to see an internet café and one of the world’s highest billiard parlors.  Therefore, this place offers some of the best options to spend your day.
