Island Peak ( Imja Tse)

Island Peak ( Imja Tse)

Island Peak 6,160 meters was first ascended in by a British expedition that included Tenzing Norgay. Eric Shipton’s party named the peak in 1953, as it resembled an island in a sea of ice. The peak is part of the south ridge of Lhotse and linked to the semicircle of cliffs that rise to the north of the summit of Nuptse. Our adventure begins with a short flight to Lukla and two days of easy walking to Namche bazaar. En- route to Base Camp our trail takes us into the high valleys of the Khumbu region, providing magnificent views of Everest and the satellite peaks. Island Peak is a substantial undertaking, which demands hard work and commitment; however the rewards of standing on top of this Himalayan are tenfold.

This course is suitable for the complete novice or as a great refresher for those who want to climb again. The course curriculum includes an introduction to equipment, crevasse rescue, ice climbing skills, rope work and comprehensive mountaineering safety techniques.

Trip Reviews

"I arrived in Kathmandu with no plan and no trip". But shortly after meeting Sujan and his team from Himalayan Ecstasy Nepal things were shaping up.
