Island Peak climbing is an incredible experience in the Himalayas of Nepal. It is intended for fiery and physically fit trekkers with practically zero experience in mountain climbing. Island Peak 6,189m is one of the major climbing peaks in the Everest region of Nepal with a great and profoundly glaciated West Face that ascents from the Lhotse Glacier. Being one of the trekking peaks, Island peak is certainly not a troublesome attempt for an apprentice climber wishing to enter the enigmatic universe of mountain adventure. Several climbers rush to Nepal consistently to get an allowance for Island Peak climbing. Our experience likewise brings us into the heartland of the Khumbu Valley and Sherpa culture. Prior to scaling the peak, we likewise visit, potentially the most prominent trekking goal on the planet – Everest Base Camp 5,364m and Kala Patthar – for the very close views of Mount Everest and other high mountains.
The Island peak climbing trip has legitimate and steady acclimatization at reasonable altitudes. The trek starts from and arrives at the most renowned airstrips on the planet, the Lukla Airport in the Everest Region.
