Island Peak also known as Imja Tse is one of the most popular trekking peaks in Nepal for climbing on Himalayas. The approach “Island peak climbing” to the peak is through beautiful Gokyo valley .With a flight to Lukla from Kathmandu. It is probably the best trip in Nepal adored by adventure seekers. We follow the Dudh Koshi river valley, acclimatize one day in the Sherpa village of Namche Bazzar and head for the pristine Gokyo lake. We enjoy the climb to famous Gokyo Ri which commands one of the finest views of Everest, Cho Oyu and other mountains, cross the Cho La pass, enjoy yet another grand view, and descend to Dingboche. From Dingboche the mountain is seen as an island in a sea of ice. Imja Tse not only provides an enjoyable climb but also provides some of the most spectacular scenery of Himalayas in the Everest region.

Seen from the summit the giant mountains, Nuptse (7,879m), Lhotse (8,501m), Lhotse Middle Peak (8,410m) and Lhotse Shar (8,383m) make a semi circle in the north. The views of Makalu (8475m) in the east, Baruntse and Amadablam in the south add more charm in climbing Island Peak . For many mountaineers climbing Island Peak marks the beginning of climbing on Himalayas to prepare for a big Himalaya expedition in Nepal in the later years. For some mountaineers the peak stands for the purpose of acclimatization before heading to bigger mountain climbing. Trekking to Kaalapatthar or Everest base camp is best suited for acclimatization before proceeding to the climbing on Island Peak.

The normal route for climbing Island Peak is South East Flank & South-West Ridge Normally; the base camp is set at Pareshaya Gyab (5,087m), between Imja Tse and the lateral moraine of the Imja Glacier. Proper care should be taken to avoid the possible avalanche in the event of heavy snow fall. For some people reaching to the summit from the base camp is a day activity. However, most of the climbers prefer alpine style camping at high camp which adds the joy of climbing and also helps a safe ascent.
