The popular Island Peak Climbing in the Everest region has attracted the peak climbers from all over the world. The Peak has enticed not only the climbers but also the trekkers to Everest Base Camp. It is situated between the Everest Himalayas.

Island Peak (6189m) is locally called the Imja Tse, which was first ascended in 1956 AD by a Swiss Climbing Team. The Island Peak Climbing in Nepal Package becomes more overwhelming as it adjoins the Everest Base Camp Trekking along the trip.

This is not only the Island Peak Climbing trail; it also joins the Everest Base Camp Trekking trail. So it can be named Island Peak Climbing with Everest Base Camp Trekking.

Your Island Peak Climbing with Everest Base Camp Trekking begins with a short flight to the Himalayan airport Lukla. Marching through the upper trail to the glacial River, the trek crosses Phakding and Monjo to ascend the Sherpa heartland of Namche Bazaar.

Similarly, exploring the traditional Sherpa cultural lifestyles and the Himalayan views of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, and others give positive energy and works as acclimatization. In the same way, the Kalapatthar hiking adds further charm in this Island Peak trekking trail. So, this trail can be named as Kalapatthar Island Peak Climbing. The Kalapatthar is also considered as the viewpoint for looking the surrounding Himalayan ranges including the Mt. Everest. Before climbing the Island peak, Everest Base Camp Trek makes the climbers physically fit and more acclimatized.

After descending from the Everest Base Camp, it is a continual trek to the Island peak base camp. Besides, Island peak is normally covered by the heap of snow. Peak Climbers get climbing practices and training along the way with using peak climbing equipments. With a gentle climb to Island Peak, it descends to the base camp and continues the trek to Namche Bazaar and Lukla. Then finally you have a flight back to Kathmandu.
