Add trekking in the Everest region with an expedition to the Island Peak, a fantastic Himalayan experience

On your 16-day Island Peak Expedition you will not only reach the summit of the magnificent Island Peak but also experience trekking in the most coveted Everest region. Island Peak climbing also called Imja Tse peak climbing by the Nepalese is a popular choice among novice climbers who wish to begin their mountaineering journey by summiting Island Peak and then move on to other peaks. The mountain was named “”Island Peak”” in 1952 AD due to its striking location in the middle of the Chhukung valley, like an island on a sea of ice. Island Peak has an impressive, highly glaciated west face that rises from the Lhotse Glacier which is a bit tough to do; however, the magnificent views from the summit are certainly a fitting reward for your efforts.

FAQs

Island peak climb is basically recommended for beginners willing to step into the world of mountaineering. Even then, climbing Island peak requires having an experience of trekking in high altitude. Island peak is a difficult climb at an extreme altitude with a steep ascent and thin air to breathe. The foot of the headwall is the hardest part of the climb. Nevertheless, the climbing route is safe with fixed lines all the way to the summit.

Although it is possible to climb Island Peak throughout the year except during the monsoon months, the best time to climb Island Peak is during spring and fall seasons. March to early June is the spring time and also the busiest climbing season of the year. September to November is the fall season when temperatures are moderate and weather tends to be clear. Climbers have attempted to climb Island Peak even in winters in the past, but the extreme cold during winter months could really be perilous for some. Summer season invites rain and does not offer great views during the climb.

Absolutely yes! Under normal circumstances, our booked trips are guaranteed to run. You will still be doing your trek even if other trekkers cancel their trip. This is the reason why Himalayan Glacier is different from other agencies, who usually cancel their whole trip a month or even a week before the trip date. We are a tailor-made company and the number of participants does not stop our operation. If your trip has been canceled by your operator and you are in a last-minute stress, remember to find us to sort out your trip decisions. Please feel free to book your stress-free holidays with us. Unless there is a situation which is out of control such as a political riot, natural disaster, pandemic, epidemic or weather catastrophes, our trips are 100% guaranteed to run.

Himalayan Glacier offers a lifetime deposit policy which allows you the flexibility to transfer your deposit to anyone or any other trip. If you wish to cancel your booked trips, certain cancelation charges apply. Please visit our booking terms and conditions for detailed information.

You will be climbing along with other like-minded people unless you book for a private tour or we do not have a group on your preferred date. You will be guided by Himalayan Glacier’s experienced and knowledgeable local climbing instructors or Sherpa climbing leaders who have been to the top of the peak successfully multiple times. Some climbing leaders have also summited Mt. Everest at least once or few times in their climbing career. Your guide will provide you with important tips and teach you the tricks while assisting you from day one. He will also provide you with pre-climbing training the day before summit at the base camp. Lot of cheap operators do not take this climbing trip seriously thereby risking your health or well-being, so be very prudent when you choose your climbing operator.

Island Peak is technically known to be a ‘trekking peak’, but when it comes to packing, a lot more stuff is required than what you can expect from a regular trek. The right types of equipment and gears play a crucial role to successfully attempt the Island Peak climb. We recommend the following gears and kits for Island Peak climbing:
  • Hiking boots
  • Climbing boots
  • Back pack (daypack)
  • Sleeping bag
  • Head torch
  • Water & wind proof jacket
  • Shirts and t-shirts
  • Thermal base layers
  • Sun hat & sun glasses
  • Gloves
  • Thermal bottoms
  • Socks
  • Trekking trousers
  • Water & wind proof trouser
  • Water bottles
  • Sun cream & lip balm
  • Personal toiletries
  • Gaiters
  • Trekking poles
  • Scarf & warm hat
  • Apart from the other regular items that you would pack for a typical trekking trip in Nepal, read more for other essential peak climbing equipment and familiarize yourself with the kits you will be carrying along for the trip.
