Island Peak

Island Peak is one of the best places to go for Everest Base Camp Trek combine Island Peak, which stands 6189m tall. It lies in the part of Everest region and is enlisted in the most difficult treks. It offers technical trials. So anyone who wants to join this amazing island peak must have some basic mountaineering experience like walking on snow with crampons and ice ax; rock scrambling and etc. Island Peak trek starts with a remarkable flight to Lukla (the heart of the Khumbu region) from Kathmandu. During the journey, we get to view the highest peaks in the world, Mount Everest (8848m); Lhotse (8501m), Makalu (8475m) and other high altitude mountains. Peak Island is known as ImjTse. 

We start island Peak trip that goes first to Everest Base camp Trek including Kalapathar for good acclimatization then around the base of Imjatse which lies in between moraine and the elevation before turning North-East and then mounting minor rocks and sheer grassy slopes. Along the way, we witness amazing nature views, Sherpa villages, old-aged monasteries and the greatest mountains in the world. Our trail continues until we reach Namche where we stay a night or two and head towards Dudh Kosi, ImjaKhola and more. After we rest, we move on to the Northern direction of the Khumbu Glacier till we reach Kala Patthar which will give you the most amazing view of the greatest mountain in the world, Mount Everest. The typical site for Island Peak Base Camp for this trek is located at PareshayaGyab (5058m). But people must know that it is not an attractive place to be and should be cautious for avalanches. After the camp, we move further until we reach Everest National Park (5640m) and explore things around there. Once we get enough rest, we arrange for the climax of the trip using ropes and crampons and hike snow slopes and cross glaciers. Our trail comes to an end after that and we head back to the airport in Lukla.

We (Nepal Kailash Trekking) are responsible for everything for this trip and we are going to make sure that you will be provided all things that you need for this trip. Not just basic requirements, we are going to guarantee you that it will be the best times of your life and the most daring thing you will ever do.
