About Island Peak Climbing
Island peak clmibing is a popular mountaineering program in Nepal as ascending the Island Peak is comparatively easier than other expeditions. The Island Peak is also known as Imja Tse. When seen from Dingboche, the peak looks like an island between a sea of ice. This is where the peak gets its name from. When compared to other peaks, this peak is a relatively difficult climb. However, with the best people in the field and a bit of effort from your side this peak is conquerable.
It was first climbed in 1956 by an expedition team that was preparing to climb the peak of peaks or Mount Everest. The summit of this peak is a difficult climb across ice and snow. The top compensates climbers for their difficult journey with incomparable mountain views of Ama Dablam (6,856) and Makalu (8,481 m). The descent is comparatively easier and faster than the ascent.
The trek to Island Peak also walks us through the countryside, where we immerse in centuries-old Nepalese and Tibetan cultures. The journey offers some of the most striking scenery in the Khumbu via the enchanting village of Dingboche. Filled with Buddhist shrines, this village of stone charms our path to the mountain.
All accommodation during the trekking is in comfortable lodges. And we give the best tented camp during the climbing period.
