Island peak climbing adventure is a well-planned route with the best acclimatization designed to detail with awesome Himalayan scenery that literally stirs the emotions, trek to Island Peak via the Everest Base Camp route on a high. This is definitely not the highest trekking peak in Nepal, but the imposing Island Peak at 6,189m/20,305ft provides plenty of technical ramifications. We have before us an assorted feast of rock scrambling, roped glacier travel, a steep snow/ice wall on fixed ropes, and an exposed summit ridge for an exciting climax that gets the adrenaline pumping on top physical gear. The trip takes-off with a flight from Kathmandu to Hillary’s airstrip at Lukla, before a trek to Dingboche via the Sherpa capital, hustling & bustling Namche Bazaar. You spend two blissful nights in each of these villages, to assist with your acclimatization and lessen the chances of altitude illness, especially for a trip like this. The two-week hike in is a world-class trek in a league of its own. It provides optimum acclimatization and includes an early morning ascent of Kala Pattar, or alternatively the trek up to Everest Base Camp. At every twist and turn, we are rewarded with unforgettable panoramic views of 7,000 and 8,000m Himalayan giants that stand tall reaching to the sky.
