Home | Nepal Adventures | Island Peak Expedition

Overview

This itinerary combines the classic Everest Base Camp trek with climbing one of Nepal’s most iconic trekking peaks – Island Peak. After visiting Everest Base Camp and walking up Kala Patar we head to Chukkung and to Island Peak Base Camp, before we aim for the summit of Island Peak.

Island Peak is a more technical peak than some of the other trekking peaks in Nepal, it starts with an easy scramble along a rock ridge to a glacier and above there is a steep snow headwall leading to a classic summit ridge. The views from the top are superb including the south face of Lhotse and Ama Dablam.
