Island Peak or Imja Tse (6,189m / 20,305 ft) lies in the center of the Everest Region of Nepal and is the most popular of Nepal’s 33 designated trekking peaks. It’s a great summit for first time climbers who are looking for something a little more challenging then the Everest Base Camp Trek and a good peak to start with for those with more mountaineering ambitions in Nepal. While Island Peak is used by many to gear up for higher and more precipitous peaks to come after, the climb is, by itself, extraordinarily scenic and endlessly exhilarating! Our professionally-developed climbing itinerary maximizes the sightseeing possibilities (which include Everest Base Camp and the hike to Kala Pathar) while factoring in ample time for acclimatization and a reasonable pace.

Your guides will be the ultra-experienced Sherpas, many of whom have scaled other peaks including Everest. We run our climbs with a 2 climbers to 1 guide ratio to ensure that everyone makes it to the summit or has a chance to try even if members of the group have different pacing. Our climbing.

Lunch will be served on the way to destination and dinner and breakfast will be served at the tea house where you spend the night.

Accommodations

All accommodations for  Everest base camp and island peak climbing are on twin sharing basis included in the trip cost and are chosen based on standard of hygiene, standard of service and food, location, etc. There are two styles of accommodations during the trip. We will spend 16 nights in standard tea house or lodge or Tent hotel in which there are unheated rooms with wooden beds and foam mattresses. I will try to provide Best Tea house as much as possible, however tea houses or lodges of some places only have shared washing and toilet facilities

Health and Experience Requirements

Everest base camp and island peak climbing is a difficult trip suitable for passionate adventurers who have ability to walk at least 6-7 hours a day with a light day pack. In some days we might even need to walk more hours. Walking in higher altitude is physically demanding than walking in the lower altitudes; however, those in excellent physical condition with above average fitness and some hiking experience can do this trek. Positive attitude, self-confidence and strong determination are things that aid to accomplish trip successfully. Exercising and jogging regularly for some weeks prior of the trip are good idea to enhance strength and stability.

Travel Insurance

It is a condition upon trips that all clients be insured for comprehensive expenses that might incur due to medical issues or accidents (this includes air ambulance, helicopter rescue, and treatment costs). Please note that we don’t arrange or sell insurance.

Acclimatization

‘During Everest base camp and island peak climbing  itinerary is planned with a high degree of awareness of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). Going up at higher altitudes too fast causes a medical condition serious enough to result in death. The higher the altitude, the less oxygen will be in the air. For example, at an altitude above of 5000m, there is 50% less oxygen than at sea level. Therefore, our body needs many days to adapt to an environment with less oxygen. Itineraries generally allow sufficient time to acclimatize. So, for a safe trek, it is absolutely essential to allow sufficient time for acclimatization. Sensible planning is therefore required to minimize the risk of AMS. Mild headaches, fever, loss of appetite or stomach disorders are symptoms of AMS.
