Island Peak at an elevation of 6174 m lies in the Khumbu region amidst the World’s highest snow capped giants. Island peak climbing has gained so much popularity in the recent years as the climb is physically demanding but relatively less technical. If you are a physically fit trekker and have the aspiration of conquering the summit of the Himalayas challenging the altitude and your physical abilities, Island Peak climbing is the best option for you. Island peak climbing provides a wholesome experience in the Khumbu region as your summit journey incorporates the trek to the foot of Highest Peak i.e. Everest Base camp, and Kalapatthar, which is the ultimate vantage point to have a close up view of Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse and various other colossal mountains.

After the sightseeing tour in the various ancient cultural Heritage sites in Kathmandu, an early morning flight from the domestic airport in Kathmandu takes us all the way to Luka, popularly known as Gateway to Everest. From there we start our trekking journey walking through various small settlements of local Sherpas, who carry the legacy of mountaineering profession. We walk via Namche-Tengboche-Dingboche-EBC-Kalapatter following the footsteps of Sir Edmund Hillary and Tensing Norgay on their quest to Everest summit. We reach Everest base camp and Kalapattar and return to Dingboche, and from there via Chuukung we deviate to Imja Valley where the Island Peak nestles. After conquering the summit of Island Peak we return via same route.

We follow the Dudh Kosi, ascending through Himalayan pine and Doedar cedar forests, to the celebrated village of Namche Bazaar. The village of Namche is a historic trading post where Nepalese and Tibetan traders exchange salt, dried meat and textiles. Besides being a superb place to shop for traditional crafts, Namche remains the central trading post in the Khumbu, attracting Himalayan and lowland merchants.

Guesthouse (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Included)

5

Day

Acclimatization Day in Namche.
This day is reserved for acclimatization and a very slow ascent into the thin air. After breakfast you will start to ascend towards Khumjung. The trail ascends above Namche Bazar and passes through Syangboche (3720m) – this is where the local airport is located. From a hill top above the airport, you will get your first view of Tangboche Peak (6367m), Lhotse Peak (8414m) and Ama Dablam (6856m). On arrival at Khumjung (3780m), you could visit the Hillary School before stopping for lunch at one of the tea houses - the walk takes about 3 hours. After lunch you will continue ascending the foot path to Khunde (3840m), here you could visit the local hospital before the 2 hour ascend back to Namche Bazar. This day is physically demanding at times and you should be prepared as the weather is very unpredictable. Namche Bazaar is known as the gateway of the Everest Region, visit the local museum where you can see the traditional custom of the Sherpa peoples. You will spend a second night in Namche.

Guesthouse (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Included)

6

Day

Trek to Tengboche (3860m), 5/6 hrs walk.
The flat and easy trail leads towards the view of Mt. Everest, then descends deep into the Dudh Kosi Valley at Pungki Thanka; from here it ascends the right flank of the Dudh Kosi valley to Tengboche Monastery (3860m). It is the spiritual center of the Khumbu; the climb is long, but more than adequately compensated by views of Mt. Amadablam and on a clear day, views of Mt. Everest and its surrounding peaks.

Guesthouse (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Included)

7

Day

Trek to Dingboche (4410m) 4/5 hrs walk.
Descend through a beautiful forest then cross the Imja Khola and trek through the village of Pangboche (3900m); This day is probably the most interesting trekking day because you will not lose altitude like on other days and you will enjoy views of Mt. Amadablam, Mt. Lhotse & other peaks; the route continues through pastures to Dingboche, known as the 'summer valley'.

Guesthouse (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Included)

8

Day

Second acclimatization day.
This would be your second acclimatization day that requires about 6 hours of trekking to an altitude of 5100m. After breakfast you ascend Nagerjun (5100m), a hill located on the flanks of the Chhukung valley directly above Dingboche. The main aim is to climb high and sleep low. The foot path becomes steep at times, resulting in a physically challenging day – ascending the hill could take up to 5 hours at altitude. From this altitude there are good views of Lobuche East (6119m), Lobuche West (6145m), Taboche Peak (6367m), Thamserku (6608m), Kangtega (6685m) and Ama Dablam (6856m). On a clear day you could even see Makalu, the world’s fifth highest mountain, including great views of the Pheriche Valley. After a short rest, you start to descend back to Dingboche – the walk at altitude takes about 2 hours. After lunch you should take a well-deserved rest, afternoon temperatures could drop rapidly as the sun sets over the mountain tops. You will spend a second night in Dingboche.

Guesthouse (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Included)

Day

Trek to Lobuche (4910m), 5/6 hrs walk.
Trek along a broad valley floor to Dughla, passing the Trekkers Aid Post at Pheriche (4240 m), staffed by western volunteer doctors and supported by the Himalayan Rescue Association which offers treatment and consultation to trekkers. We continue up the valley, gaining altitude. Come out of the valley to descend to the yak pastures of Lobuche (4910m).

Guesthouse (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Included)

10

Day

Trek to Everest Base Camp (5160m), then return to Gorakshep, 5/6 hrs walk.
After a short climb through meadows, look down on the Khumbu Glacier. Straight ahead is Kalapattar - the best vantage point to view the entire south face of Mt. Everest and the surrounding peaks. After couple of hours we will reach Gorakshep, and continue our journey to Everest Base camp. There is not much elevation gain, but there are a lot of ups and downs and, combined with altitude, this can be a tiring portion- but the journey is worth it. After approximately 3 hrs of hiking you will arrive at Base Camp and enjoy views of the Khumbu Glacier and icefall, where Everest expeditions begin.

Guesthouse (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Included)

Day

Day

Trek from Chhukung to Island Peak base camp (5087m/16,690ft)
From Chukkung we make a leisurely start following the Imja Valley with great views of Ama Dablam dominating the skyline and follow the moraines that flow from Lhotse (8501meters) towards the sand flats at Pareshaya Gyab. It is only a short distance from here to Base Camp, which we will reach in the mid-afternoon. Today is only 4 hours walking as we are becoming acclimatized to the thinning of air, from today the accommodation will be tented camp for next two days and you will be having camp food cooked by our professional cook.

Tent Camp (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Included)

14

Day

Climb Island Peak (6165m/20,226) and back to base Camp, 15hrs.
Today is you most important day that you are going to do your final destination summit to Island Peak(6187m). Crossing the gully above the camp the trail makes a climb for another hour to a narrow ridge, leading on to the glacier. Here it is time to rope-up and put on our crampons as the most interesting part of the climb begins with the glacier crossing. This is followed by the steep snow slope that leads onto the summit ridge. This ridge is wonderfully airy and on reaching the summit we have stunning close-up views of the south face of Lhotse looming over us whilst in the other direction, there are more dramatic mountain views. We descend along the same route, down to base camp.

Tent Camp (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Included)

15

Day

Spare day in case of contingencies during the summit day.
There is no such guarantee that we can get quite a favorable weather on our planned day for the summit (day 13), so this day is used as a contingency in case if we are unable to summit the Island on day 13 due to bad weather condition or some other reasons. If weather became exceptionally unfavorable we wisely have to postpone the program of summiting the peak on day 13 for toady (Day 14). Sometimes somebody in the group may get some problems in acclimatizing well enough to make the ascent; the day can be used in that condition too. If the trip goes smoothly, we do not need this spare day.

Tent Camp (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Included)

16

Day

Trek from Island Peak base camp to Pangboche(3985m/13,074ft) 6hrs.

Guesthouse (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Included)

17

Day

Trek from Pangboche to Namche Bazaar (3440m/11,286ft) 05hrs.
From Pangboche we descend steeply through beautiful forest of juniper, rhododendron and fir to Phunkitenga. After a welcome break and perhaps a cup of tea we cross the Dudh Kosi River and ascend to Trashinga. From here the trail contours high above the valley through to Shanasa, where we have the option of visiting Kunde and Khumjung villages before returning to Namche Bazaar - our stop for the night.

Guesthouse (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Included)
