Island Peak Climbing is one of the best destinations for ice peak climbing in Nepal. The magnificent view of rolling glaciers will definitely catch your heart. The astonishing views of Kanchanjunga, Makalu, Lhotse, Ama Dabalam and Manaslu will make you forget all you physical tiredness during your trekking. The beat part of this trekking is that even a beginner can accomplish this Island Climb.

Island Peak (6189m) also known as Imja Tse Peak is beautifully situated between Ama Dablam and Lhotse Mountain.

During this Island Peak climbing, one has to hike up through a rock channel followed by a snow head wall to reach the summit of Island Peak. Though the hike is quiet difficult, you do not need any mountaineering abilities and experiences but requires some tolerance for variable weathers and some night stay in tents.

Keeping in eyes the incredible sights of those glaciers and descending back to the main Everest route will definitely make you feel blessed with such a lifetime opportunity of being closer with the rolling glaciers and beautiful mountains.
