Island Peak Climbing | Peak Climbing in Nepal -Royal Mountain Travel - Nepal

Island Peak climbing – 21 days

The high valleys and glaciers of Khumbu, the classic Everest view and the ascent of a Himalayan Peak – The trek with it all.

A unique trek into the high valleys of the Khumbu, first ascending Kala Pattar for the classic Everest view. Hike up the Imja Khola to Chhukung, a heavenly place commanding views of the beautiful glistening ice flutings between Ama Dablam and Kang Leyamu and the incredible Lhotse South Face, soaring 3,200m in one stretch.

The ascent of Imja Tse ( Island Peak) is within the capabilities of fit and determined hill walkers as, aside from one steep and exposed 100m ice or snow climb, it is a non-technical, though demanding, snow climb.

Add to this the colorful Sherpa market town of Namche Bazaar and Tengboche, the most important Buddhist center of the region for a truly memorable experience.
