Everest Island Peak Trekking

Island Peak TrekkingIsland Peak (6119m), also known as Imja Tse, lies to the south of Mount Everest and is one of the most popular of the trekking peaks. After making preparations in Kathmandu and enjoying the diversity of this magical city, we fly to Lukla and follow the Dudh Kosi Valley to Namche Bazaar. We then trek into Gokyo Valley and ascend gradually, to ensure proper acclimatization, walking beside the moraines of Ngozumpa Glacier and turquoise lakes to reach Gokyo. From here we can climb Gokyo Ri to view of all of the region’s 8000-metre peaks including Everest, Lhotse, Makalu and Cho Oyu – a breathtaking panorama. Our trek then heads via Cho La Pass (5420m) to Lobuje, where we follow Khumbu Glacier to Gorak Shep. From here we ascend Kala Patar (5545m) where we experience another breathtaking panorama of Everest and her surrounding peaks. We also visit the historical site of Everest Base Camp. Now well acclimatised, we cross Kongma La (5535m) to Chukkung, to make our attempt on Island Peak. Though technically harder than Mera Peak, this expedition is also well within the reach of anyone seeking their first Himalayan summit.
