“You must go on adventures to find out where you belong.”

Offering an exciting climbing adventure trip, our Island Peak Climbing trip lets you encounter a miscellaneous experience of the natural & social phenomenon. Island Peak is situated amidst Upper Chhukung valley making it a high valued vantage point for eminent perspectives of the Himalayas including the majestic Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, and other neighboring pinnacles. Anyone going for Island Peak Climbing needs to be prepared for walking in snow covered trails festooned with prayer flags through thick luxuriant woods of green vegetation and natural life. In the initial beginning days of our Island Peak Climbing, we shall take on after a trail of Everest Base Camp Trek before getting out-of-the-way at Dingboche. Prior to that, climbers begin their undertaking with the sightseeing tour of UNESCO World Heritage Sites around Kathmandu and travel to Lukla, the portal to the Khumbu district via flight. Then onward we start moving away from Lukla with a stunning scene of the grandiose Himalayas and plummet down to the riverbed of relentless Dudh Koshi River past Chheplung, Thado Koshi Gaon and others. Ahead in the trail, we shall experience steep inclines to reach Namche Bazaar and further on the trail explore through a trail filled with eye-catching perspectives of Amadablam, Lhotse Shar, Daboche before reaching the antiquated religious communities of Tengboche, Pangboche and Dingboche. From this instance, we shall progressively head to the Everest Base Camp via Gorakshep. Later on, we shall head to Kala Patthar which is beyond doubt a definitive highlight of this entire journey before trekking down to Chhukung town. Through the trail encompassed by icy masses, chilly lakes, torrential slide chutes, and towering Himalayas we reach to the base of Imja Tse or Island Peak. After a few pre-arrangements, we summit the Island Peak where we get the heavenly perspectives of glorious Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Baruntse, Ama Dablam and others. Now onward we trek back down to Lukla via Tengboche & Namche Bazaar and after that to Kathmandu to finish this trekking/climbing venture. Island Peak Climbing is a great start for yearning climbers and is a touch of testing background that joins trekking and crest climbing.
