A magnificent panoramic view circuit of the Everest Region with challenging ascents of Island Peak
Everest Base Camp with Island Peak Climbing is embark on a wonderful adventure trekking and climbing that takes you into the heartland of the Khumbu Valley. Everest Base Camp (5,357m.) and Island Peak (6,165m.) is one of the main climbing peaks in the Everest Region with an impressive and highly glaciated West Face that rises from the Lhotse Glacier. The Island peak climbing itinerary has been designed very professionally by taking care of proper and gradual acclimatization at suitable intervals. Before ascent of the peak, we also take you to possibly the most popular trekking destination in the world - Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar - for the close up views of Mount Everest and other high mountains. Island Peak first ascent by Hans-Rudolf Von Gunten and 2 unknown Sherpas on 1956.
Being one of the ‘trekking peaks’ with very little technical aspects, Island Peak climb’s difficulty level is mediocre for a beginner climber wishing to enter the incredible world of mountain climbing. Our descent, surprisingly fast, brings us back to Lukla then flight back to Kathmandu.
