Island Peak Climbing

Island Peak Climbing

 

This is the most popular Climbing peak in Nepal located at Khumbu Valley for climbers on Himalayas. It is also called Imja Tse. It lies between Imja and Lhotse glaciers. The combination of Everest and Island peak make adventurous for climbing higher Himalayas. 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 Ama Dablam in the south add more charm in climbing Island Peak. Normally, the normal route for climbing Island Peak is from South East Flank & South-West Ridge of Lhotse Shar. This is separated by a small col. 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.
