  • Cost Info

Island Peak (Ima Tse 6189 m. / 20,305 ft.) is taken as the mostly climbed Peak. It can be climb in both the spring and autumn season. It is located in the upper Imja Valley of the Khumbu, surrounded by Himalaya. Observing from above Dingboche the mountain has really the same appearance as an island in a sea of ice. Peak offers very beautiful outlook in the Khumbu (Everest area). 

Island peak was named by Eric Shipton in 1952 and the first ascent was made by members of the 1953 British Everest team as a training climb. The climbing is challenging for the beginning alpine climber and the summit ridge provides one of the most dramatic view in the mornings that a Himalayan climber could dream of. The summit of Island Peak stands nearby to the South Face of Lhotse, one of the world’s largest ice walls, and offers stunning views of beautiful Ama Dablam and Makalu.
