Island Peak climbing  is the most popular trekking peak in Nepal. Island peak climbing with Everest base camp trekking is a wonderful adventurous trip. The local name of this peak is Imja Tse. It is an isolated peak in Chhukung valley. Actually this peak is extension of Mt. Lhotse Shar and is located between Mt Lhotse and Imja glaciers.  It involves one steep and exposed 100 m ice or snow climb, otherwise a non technical snow climb. Although the summit(6189m) can be reached on a single day, we stay at high camp one night at its south west ridge to ensure the success. Climbing this peak offers stunning views of huge south face of Mt. Lhotse (8,501m), Nuptse (7,879m), Lhotse Middle Peak (8,410m) and Lhotse Shar (8,383m) in the north, Mt. Makalu (8475m) and Mt. Amadablam (6856m) in the east with beautiful  sight Khumbu region and Chhukung valley. In this trip first of all we trek first towards Everest Base Camp, Kalapathar then go Chhukung valley and start climbing. For climbing this peak it does not compulsory to have formal climbing training. Any trekkers with good physical health can easily do it.

Island Peak Expedition with Himalayan smile treks team , Japan

We are greatly indebted to Himalayan Smile team for helping us to fulfill our dream of Island Expedition. We thought Island peak was out of the realm of possibility when looking at the prices of the other companies. We are so grateful that you made it possible. We arrived in Kathmandu on 10th October 2010 with six groups. After one day stays in Kathmandu we fly to Lukla. It was fantastic scenic mountain flight provided beautiful close up of view higher Himalayan range. As soon as arrived in Lukla airport our trekking began. First of all, we trekked to Kalapathar. After enjoying the great view of Mt. Everest at Kalapathar we moved to Chhukung. We stayed in Chukkung one more extra day for acclimatization and preparation for climbing. Our climbing guides taught us basic climbing techniques. Then we started Island peak climbing. Although our all team did not succeed the whole peak climbing it was a great experience. We really enjoyed it. We do not have any comments on the management of Himalayan Smile Treks. We highly appreciate the leading style and the management of Mr. KP. All the climbing guides were highly experienced and helpful. We found that such management and helpful trekking crew we had not ever got in previous trekking in Nepal. As a result of our satisfaction, we are planning Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trekking in 2010 April. Thank you very much to Himalayan Smile and all the best for your bright future in trekking and adventure operations in Nepal.
