"People do not decide to become extraordinary. They decide to accomplish extraordinary Things." -  Sir Edmund Hillary 

Island Peak Climbing and Everest Base Camp tour is a perfect treat to the trekkers as it is designed for energetic and enthusiastic trekkers for an outstanding experience in the Himalayas.

Island Peak Climb is a significantly a bit more challenging trip than only Everest Base Camp Trek.  Island Peak, known as Imja Tse located at the altitude of 6189 meters by Local Sherpa is one of the top climbing peaks for those who are looking for easy climbing experience in the Everest region of Nepal.  Island Peak Climbing with EBC Tour is a perfect opportunity to ascend the majestic Island Mountain. It is also the most famous highest trekking mountain and a trek to Everest Base Camp.

Island Peak Summit is 6,189m or Imja Tse situated above Chhukung's summer settlement and viewed from Dingboche above. Hiking on the Island Peak provides an invigorating hiking trip in Nepal beyond even trekking. This Island peak is the Everest region's most famous trekking peak to climb. The climb with EBC trek to Island peak is ideal for both beginner climbers and seasoned trekkers.

By reaching the Island Peak, you can stand at 6189 meters on the tip of a majestic mountain. Standing on top of the edge of the Island love the same incredible feeling of achievement as you can on top of Everest Mountain. Island Peak Trek's adventure rises miraculously in a sea of ice surrounded by Lhotse and Lhotse SharGlaciers, like an island. From the top of Island Peak Nepal, we'll experience the spectacular view of some of the world's colossal mountains like Mt Lhotse, Mt Makalu, Lhotse Middle Mount, Lhotse Shar, Mt Nuptse, Mt Baruntse, the mighty AmaDablam, and other prominent snow-covered peaks surrounding it.

After a brief flight to Lukla, the trek starts. The trails take you to Phakding, a UNESCO World Heritage Site (Sagarmatha National Park) in DudhKoshi's green valley, and then to the famed Namche Bazaar where we'll spend two nights acclimatizing. Trekking from Tengboche to Pheriche to Lobuche can continue; these culturally rich Sherpa villages are full of Chortens, Mani Walls, museums, and spectacular Himalayan views. We will visit the Everest Base Camp before the planned Island Top and ascend Kalapathar. Kalapathar is famous among trekkers as one can get a complete base from sunrise or sunset view to the top view of Mount Everest. Lastly, we're going to trek to Island Peak's base camp and summit it on the 15th day. Island Peak was called an island in a sea of ice because of its location in the middle of the valley. Its name is ImjaTse.

A 360-degree panoramic view of mountains like Lhotse, AmaDablam, and Makalu is well rewarded for the diligent work. From there, we'll trek back and forth before the thrilling Everest Base Camp Trek trip with the Island peak comes to an end back in Kathmandu.
