Island Peak Climbing with Everest Base Camp Trek  is one of our special treks and Peak Climbing and we’d be delighted to help you explore this unreliable region in Nepal.

The combined climb with a trek up to island peak and the Everest base camp trek is a wonderful experience rewarded with spectacular views of other Himalayan peaks and the Khumbu glacier. Island Peak Climbing is one of the worthwhile trekking peaks in the Khumbu Region of Nepal. Before you attempt the climb, however, if you have trekked to Everest Base Camp, 5357 m, and Kala Patthar, 5545 m from Jiri, Phaplu or even Lukla, you will be acclimatized. Climbing to Island Peak goes along the route to Everest Base camp and Kala Patthar. Standing on the summit of Island Peak, surrounded by the entire Khumbu range, including Nuptse, Lhotse is the perfect climbing trip in the Himalayas of Nepal.

Island Peak Climbing is rated'moderate'', and although a good level of physical fitness is essential, previous climbing experience is not required. Its highly glaciated West Face rises from the Lhotse Glacier up to a technically straightforward ridge; this is a perfect place for novice climbers to develop the skills of climbing on snow and ice at high altitudes. Following the traditional Everest Base Camp trail, we fly to Lukla. En route, we will trek to Everest Base Camp via Lukla-Namche Bazaar-Tengboche-Pheriche-Lobuche-Gorak Shep. We'll cross the massive Glacier Khumbu Ice and explore the peaceful village of Sherpa in the heart of the Everest Region. Then the trek continues to Labuche, Gorakshep, Everest Base Camp, and Kala Patthar before returning to Lobuche. From Labuche over Khongmala Pass, a 5535-meter trek down to Chhukung. We then head up the beautiful Imja Khola valley and then to the Island Peak Base Camp.

Island Peak Climbing takes only 3 days and 2 nights, making it one of the shortest, Island peak Climbing is least expensive of the climbing packages as offered. Each climb starts according to our scheduled departure dates. The minimum size of a group is two people. During the Island Peak expedition, we train you the skills needed to ascend safely in basecamp.

According by great climber, Eric Shipton, Island Peak, "looked like an island in a sea of ice". Later on, she was named "Imja Tse" by Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA). Island Peak is the favorite peak of the Everest region of Nepal.

The Everest Base Camp trek is another one of Nepal's most popular treks and rightly so. Standing right on the lap of the world's highest mountain, Mount Everest highest mountain in the world, is known as Sagarmatha in Nepali and Chomolungma (Mother Goddess of the World) in Tibetan. The Everest trekking trail is very well developed, with comfortable and quirky tea houses along the way. Everest Base Camp trekking trip leads you through the Solukhumbu region slowly up the valley, tracing the path of the successful British 1953 expedition all the way to the EBC. Along the way, we admire the most impressive mountain views of Cholatse and the favorite of many visitors, Ama Dablam. We hike up Kala Pathar (5,554 m), which offers a magnificent panorama of Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Pumori, Nuptse, and many more famous mountains, as well as the Khumbu glacier. We encourage you to book mesmerizing and adventurous EBC trek with Island peak climbing in Nepal.

Information

Nepal Visas

You need visa for Nepal, which can be obtained in advance or on entry. If you wish to apply before departure the current visa cost is £20 for a 15 day visa and £35 for a 30 day visa for UK passport holders. The current cost of a visa on arrival is US$25 for 15 days, US$40 for 30 days or if extending your stay $100 for 90 days. All are multiple entry. The visa on arrival fee can be paid for in cash in US Dollars, Pounds Sterling or Euros. You will also need a passport photo. Application forms are available in the immigration hall (or for electronic passports there are visa registration machines which, after inserting your passport, automatically fill out a form for you). You must firstly join the queue to pay the visa fee, and then go to the relevant immigration desk to obtain your 15, 30 or 90 day visa stamp. There can be long queues for visas on arrival.


Flexible Timing

The flight from Kathmandu to Lukla significantly reduces the journey time compared to the trek via Jiri (which we also offer). The flight is the shortest and most popular way of gaining access to the region but the mountain weather is notoriously unpredictable and sometimes even during the best part of the season, flights are delayed or postponed for one or more days. We can also arrange for a Heli charter from Kathmandu to Lukla instead but this adds significant extra cost. We highly recommend that you take potential delays into account and allow for an extra day in Kathmandu.
