This spectacular and one of the most famous treks in Nepal simply has "everything". The fitter walker can get very close to Mt. Everest on this trek, ascending Kala Patthar for the finest views of the whole massif including Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and Pumori. Island Peak Climb is an ideal trek for those wishing to make the full Everest trek, and indulge to absorb the local traditions and culture of the area which is truly unique.

In 1952 Eric Shipton followed the Imja River en-route to the remote Barun gorge between Baruntse and Makalu. During that journey he described a mountain "resembling an island in a sea of ice." Ever since, the name Island Peak has stuck; although it was renamed Imja Tse by the Nepal Mountaineering Association, it remains the most popular trekking peak. Dwarfed, by the massive walls of Lhotse, Baruntse and Ama Dablam, its floats between the Imja and Lhotse Glaciers, its south face rears as a rocky triangle; the end of a truncated ridge falling from Lhotse Shar. Charles Evans, Charles Wylie, Alf Gregory and Tenzing Norgay climbed Island Peak in 1953 with a group of seven Sherpas, in preparation for Everest Expedition. Their climb up to southeast flank and the south ridge from a camp at Pareshaya Gyab remains the normal route of ascent. This trip will take you right in the steps of Everest Base Camp Trek and giving you that ultimate Trekking in Nepal Experience of having been so slose to the mighty Mount Everest and the Everest Base Camp in itself. As outfitter based in Nepal for the Everest Region, this trip is a real special one for us and all outfitters in Nepal as it is sure to please the climbers due to the panaroma and widerness all along the route.
