Island Peak Climbing via Gokyo Chola Pass EBC Trek is one of the challenging adventure trip in Khumbu Himalayan Regions. Island Peak (6187 meters), also locally known as Imja Tse, lies to the south of Mount Everest and is one of the most popular trekking peaks of Nepal. After exploring the temples, shrines, bazaars and restaurants of Kathmandu we take an exciting mountain flight to Lukla 2840m and trek up the Dudh Kosi Valley, surrounded by the soaring peaks of Thamserku and Kusum Kanguru. It’s a steep ascent to Namche Bazaar, capital of the Kumbu Sherpa’s, where we are again greeted by spectacular mountain vistas. A rest day here aids acclimatization and there are great optional walks to enjoy the area. We then trek into Gokyo Valley and ascend slowly, to ensure proper acclimatization, walking beside the moraines of Ngozumpa Glacier and turquoise lakes to reach Gokyo. From here we can climb Gokyo Ri to view of all of the region’s 8000-meters peaks including Everest, Lhotse, Makalu and Cho Oyu – a breathtaking panorama. Our trek then heads via Cho La Pass (5300 meters) to Lobuche, where we follow Khumbu Glacier to Gorak Shep. From here we ascend Kala Patar (5555 meters) where we experience another breathtaking panorama of Everest and its surrounding peaks. We also visit the historical site of Everest Base Camp. Now well acclimatized for heading Island Peak, we cross Kongma La (5535meters) to Chukkung, to make our challenge on Island Peak. Though technically harder than Mera Peak, this expedition is also well within the reach of anyone looking for their first Himalayan summit.

If you wish to make your trip shorter to Island Peak then our 23 Days Everest Base Camp and Island Peak or only 18 days Island Peak Climbing Adventure is option for you.

After summiting amazing Island Peak, we return at our relaxed pace back to Namche and Lukla for our return flight to Kathmandu.

Health and Experience Requirements

  Gokyo chola pass Ebc island peak Trekking and 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  Gokyo chola pass Ebc island peak Trekking and 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.
