Overview

Book
High in the Khumbu, close to Everest and closer still to the precipitous south face of Lhotse, the aptly named Island Peak (6189m) rises above a tangled knot of glaciated valleys. With its outrageous location and elegant summit ridge, this peak has been a favourite with tour leaders and clients for 2 decades. Trekking via Namche Bazaar and Thyangboche, we follow the Everest Base Camp trail to Lobuche beside the Khumbu glacier. As part of our acclimatisation programme we visit Everest Base Camp and make an ascent of the classic viewpoint of Kala Pattar, where we enjoy some of the finest views of the world's highest peak. Then crossing the Khumbu Glacier, we climb up to the Kongma La which gives access to the valley of the Imja Khola and the summer grazing settlement of Chukung. From here we move up to the base camp for our main objective, Island Peak. The ascent of this 6000 metre peak in the shadow of the huge Lhotse face is an alpine experience in every sense, involving fine climbing in exposed situations amongst breathtaking scenery. This is one of the best of all Nepalese adventures.
