Island Peak Climbing

Island Climbing Peak is located on the top of the Chukung glacier between Ama Dablam and Lhotse mountains. Because of its challenging geographical conditions, island peak climbing is the most sought after trekking destination. It not only provides an enjoyable climb but also provides some of the most spectacular scenery of Himalayas in the Everest region.

The combination of Everest base camp and Island Peak climbing is probably the best trip in Nepal abroad by adventure seekers. From Dingboche the mountain is seen as an island in a sea of ice. The giant mountains like Nuptse (7879m), Lhotse (8501m), Lhotse middle peak (8410m), and Cholatse (8383m) are also viewed from the summit.

For many mountaineers climbing Island peak marks the beginning of climbing on Himalayas to prepare for a big Himalaya expedition in Nepal in the later years. The magnificent views of the summit are certainly a fitting reward for year efforts. Proper care should be taken to avoid the possible avalanche in the event of heavy snow fall.
