About Island Peak Climbing with EBC

Neighboring the tallest Mountain in the world, Mt. Everest to the north, Imja Tse or majorly familiar as Island Peak is the most famous peak climbing among adventure admirer. Island Peak Climbing can be summited even if you have little technical knowledge or none but demands good physical condition as the trail is steep. It can too be considered as the beginner training before climbing the high mountains as did by a British expedition before summiting Sagarmatha. Standing on the top of miraculous Island peak at an altitude of 6189 meters offers a breathtaking scenario of the giant Himalayas of eastern Nepal.

Island Peak falls under Sagarmatha National Park to the east-northern side of Kathmandu. The peak name was given by Eric Shipton's party in 1951 as they saw it as an island in a sea of ice from Dingboche. It was first submitted by a British expedition in 1953 as a part of training before heading to summit Mt. Everest.

Island Peak Climbing with EBC journey begins with 35 minutes of adventurous flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. Lukla Airport is also known as Tenjin Hillary Airport is one the world's top ten dangerous airports built with the narrow runway. From this point, we set on foot for the rest of the duration. Before climbing the incredible Island Peak, we head towards the world's popular trekking destination at the base of Mount Everest. Take a glimpse of earth's miracle the snow-capped Himalayas then, divert to the path of Island Peak from Lobuche. Summit the challenging Island Peak, observe the stunning views and back to Kathmandu.
