Island Peak Expedition via Everest Base Camp ( 21 days )

Island Peak Expedition via Everest Base Camp

Trip Overview

This is the most popular climbing / trekking peak in Nepal. Sherpa capital of Namche Bazaar is veering off the trail to Everest base came. We will enter the magnificent Gokyo valleys, a land of high altitude lakes and icy glaciers. After crossing Cho La (5,420 m / 17,778 ft) (except going to Gokyo valley and Chhukuma La Pass we proceed towards Everest base camp as well) we go towards the Khumbu glacier en route to Everest base camp (5,358 m / 17,575ft) and you can enjoy spectacular panorama from Kala Patthar at 18,192ft (5,545m.). Our route descends to Dignboche and goes to Chhukung valley and Island (Imja Tse) Base camp.
  From Dingboche the mountain is clearly seen as a pyramid of ice and rock. The mountain itself is the extension of the South Ridge of Lhotse Shar separated by a small col. The ridge rising to the south from this point leads to the summit of Island Peak. Imja Tse not only provides an enjoyable climb but also provides some of the most spectacular scenery of Himalayas in the Khumbu region. Seen from the summit the giant mountains, Nuptse (7,879m), Lhotse (8,501m), Lhotse Middle Peak (8,410m) and Lhotse Shar (8,383m) make a semi circle in the north. The views of Makalu (8475m) in the east, Baruntse and Ama Dablam in the south add more charm for climbing Island Peak. The journey came to end at Lukla airstrip then we fly back to Kathmandu.

Trip Highlights

There are several options for additional side trips and high altitude walking, including the crossing of Chola, a 5420m high pass into Khumbu.
