Island Peak and Everest Base Camp

Altitude 6189m, Grade 2B (grades)

A great first Himalayan mountaineering experience.

Island Peak at the end of the Chukung Valley

Background

This is a great first Himalayan mountaineering experience that includes glacier travel, moderate snow and ice climbing and a magnificent peak alongside spectacular views of Everest and many of Nepal’s other 8000m peaks.

You will have time to explore the exotic city of Kathmandu before flying into the remote mountain town of Lukla where you begin your trek into the Khumbu region of the Himalaya. We follow the main Everest trail through the many tiny villages with their Buddhist monasteries and unique mountain culture. The views grow more spectacular as we progress up the Dudh Kosi River to Namche Bazaar, the gateway to the Khumbu region and then up through Thyangboche where you are rewarded with spectacular views of Ama Dablam, Mt. Everest and Lhotse. Continuing through the valley through Pheriche to Gorak Shep we ascend Kalar Patar at 5554m and visit Everest BC before returning for the ascent of Island Peak.

The summit day involves a comfortable scramble, an intriguing rock ridge and then onto a wonderful glacier. Onwards, a steep snow headwall leads to a classic summit ridge. From here you are afforded fabulous views of many Himalayan giants, including the immense face of Lhotse, the elegant pyramid of Ama Dablam, the ragged summits of Nuptse and beyond to Baruntse and Makalu.
