I also did a lot of research about the possibility until I came across Mera Peak in Nepal. After months of planning and preparation for this most sought-after trip, I was all pumped up to conquer the highest trekking peak of Nepal at 6461m.

What Physical Fitness is required to Climb Island Peak?

One of the common question people have about Island Peak is the level of physical fitness required to climb the peak. Sometimes also called “trekking peak”, getting to the peak top itself is of non-technical nature, graded as alpine PD+. In mountaineering term, PD+ is broadly defined as “slightly difficult” level. Generally speaking, most trekkers with good physical condition and with some mountaineering skills are up to the task. So Island Peak climbing for beginners is not a far-fetched idea.

However, just because you are fit and healthy does not mean you are already ready to scale the peak. Although you will have ample opportunity to get yourself acclimatized at high altitude during the trek itself, you are recommended to go through a series of fitness routine several months before your actual trip.
