Island Peak, as known as Imja Tse Peak (6189m), lies in the center of the Everest Region of Nepal and is the most popular of Nepal’s 33 designated trekking peaks. It’s a great summit for first time climbers who are looking for something more challenging rather than just Everest Base Camp.
This trek combines an excellent himalayan trekking with exclusive mountain climbing and offers an extraordinary scenic and endlessly exhilarating journey which fulfils the dream of many hungry travelers who have a burning desire to explore and experience the nose-tips views of precipitous Mt. Everest and its ranges.
Significantly, the island peak climbing day starts very early morning with an interesting scramble along a rock ridge to a glacier. Furthermore, above the rock ridge, there is a steep snow head wall leading to the summit. It might be a physically challenging however, the mystic and captivating views from the top make you to forget the struggle of climbing with ropes.
