Island Peak Climbing Quick Booking

Located between Amadablam and Lhotse Mountains, Island Peak is one of the most popular trekking peaks in Nepal for mountain climbing. Island Peak is also known as Imja Tse. Island Peak climbing if combined with Everest Base Camp Trekking is considered probably the best trip in Nepal. Island Peak Climb provides the best experience to every amateur and serious climber. The mountain is seen as an island in the sea of ice from Dingboche and hence named Island Peak. 
 
The normal route to climb Island Peak is via South East Flank and Southeast ridge. During this trip, we set base camp at Pareshaya Gyab located between Island Peak and lateral moraine of Imja Glacier. Island Peak is suitable for all the climbers whether they are going to climb Himalayas for the first time or they are keen hill walkers who have prior mountaineering experience. Island Peak is considered more technical peak to climb than the rests of the climbing peaks in Nepal. During Island Peak Climbing, we can witness the superb views of the south face of Lhotse and Amadablam. March to May and September to December are considered the best seasons for Island Peak Trek in Nepal. You will have great time climbing Island Peak with Nepal Himalayas Trekking Team.
