Island Peak Climbing
Duration: 20 Nights / 21 Days
Altitude: 6,173m
Trip Catagory: Peak Climbing

Island Peak Climbing (6,189m/20,305ft), also known as Imja Tse, is a popular trekking-peak located in the Khumbu region of Nepal. It was named Island Peak by Eric Shipton's party in 1951, since it appears as an island in a sea of ice when viewed from Dingboche. It actually is an extension of the ridge coming down off the south-end of Lhotse Shar separated by a small Col.

Climbing Island Peak is an incredible experience for the adventurous trekker. Standing at 6,189m it is a real Himalayan summit and from the top there are the most spectacular views across the whole of the Khumbu region. You start the climb to Island Peak following the classic trek to Everest Base Camp (5,380m) and ascending Kala Patthar (5,643m) which has stunning views of the Khumbu ice field, Pumori, Nuptse, Lhotse and of course Everest’s north face. From there you head back down the Dudh Kohsi valley as far as Dingboche before turning up the Imja Khola valley towards Chukkung and Island Peak.
