Overview

Island Peak climbing with Everest Base Camp Trek is a fantastic experience in the Himalayas of Nepal. It is designed for energetic and physically fit trekkers with little or no experience in mountain expedition. Island Peak (6,189m/20,305ft) is one of the main climbing peaks in the Everest Region of Nepal with an impressive and highly glaciated West Face that rises from the Lhotse Glacier. Being one of the ‘trekking peaks’ with very little technical aspects, Island Peak is not a difficult undertaking for a beginner climber wishing to enter the incredible world of mountain climbing. Hundreds of climbers flock to Nepal every year to get a permit for Island Peak climbing. Our adventure also takes us into the heartland of the Khumbu Valley and Sherpa culture. Before scaling the peak, we also visit, possibly the most popular trekking destination in the world – Everest Base Camp (5,357m/17,575ft) and Kala Patthar – for the up-close views of Mt. Everest and other high mountains.

The Island Peak Climbing Itinerary has proper and gradual acclimatization at suitable intervals. The 19-day journey begins from and comes to a conclusion at one of the most famous airstrips in the world, the Lukla Airport in the Everest Region.

Trekking and climbing of Island Peak in October 2021

We have just returned from Nepal; our trip was wonderful. Superb approach trekking in the Khumbu valley and ascent of Island Peak perfectly supported by the team. We were lucky enough to reach the top and thank Vertical Himalaya for organizing this expedition. Everything was perfect: the welcome on our arrival, the choice of lodges and the itinerary, the kindness and helpfulness of the guides and porters, the competence of our climbing Sherpa ... We hope to come back next year for a new ascent with the Vertical Himalaya team! Jean-Michel and Mara (Belgium)
