Island Peak Trek in the Everest region of Nepal is one of the most sought-after treks of thrill seekers residing in different corners of the world. This trek takes climbers to the altitude of 6,189m above the sea level, offering them the best peak climbing experience.

Island peak (named by Eric Shipton’s mountaineering team in 1953) or Imja Tse is located on top of the Chhukung glacier amid Ama Dablam and Mt Lhotse. The peak flaunts itself as an island in the sea of ice. Thus, this peak lying in the middle of Chhukung valley is known as an Island peak.

Peak expedition is one of the leading activities preferred by the trekkers in Nepal. So far, 33 peaks have officially been announced as the best trekking peaks in Nepal. Out of these peaks, expedition to Island Peak is highly recommended and preferred by trekkers planning their next trek in the Himalayas of Nepal.

Starting from Lukla the trail makes its way through different colorful settlements of Sherpa people, prayer rocks, monasteries, suspension bridges, glacial moraines (Lhotse and Imja), Rhododendron forest, and the rare species of flora, fauna and birds in Sagarmatha National Park to the Island Peak summit, where you will be greeted with simply ‘the WOW’ scenery of Mt. Makalu in the east, Ama Dablam and Baruntse in the south and Nuptse, Lhotse, Lhotse Shar and Lhotse Middle (towering above 8000m) the north. Moreover, the hospitality offered by the Sherpa people adds more warmth even during the extremely cold days.

However, to enjoy both weather and the best view, it is very necessary to plan this trek at the right time of the year. The best times to climb Island Peak are; mid March to May and mid September to November. Though difficult, the trek is not technical. A physically fit and mentally determined person can plan this trek. If you are looking for more of a challenge, then you can consider our other packages like Pisang Peak climbing, Everest Base Camp with Island Peak climbing etc.

Amigo Treks and Expedition designs, some of the best and customized itineraries for trekkers interested to climb Island Peak. However, if you are waiting for the package that offer the best cost for Island peak trek, we recommend you to try our Island Peak climbing (17 days) package.

Key Note:

High altitude weather conditions are usually unpredictable, even during the best trekking seasons. Because of this, there may be sudden schedule changes with domestic flights to and from Lukla. The time duration varies depending on the weather condition. The flights may be delayed for a minimum of several hours extending to several days, depending on the weather conditions. Therefore, we strongly recommend you to get ready for this by adding a few extra days to your plan. However, if everything goes according to the plan you will be left with days that can be well utilized to enjoy other attractions like rafting, jungle safari, shopping and many more.

Safety: During the entire trek, the team leader provided by the company is responsible for your safety. The team leader will make every effort to keep up with the itinerary provided to you; however, if it concerns your safety, then the team leader holds every authority to cancel any part of the itinerary.

After exploring the surrounding areas visit historical Kathmandu Durbar Square with temple, unique architectures and Kumari (living goddess). Evening pre-trip discussion and introduce with our fellow trekking staff for your adventure trip.

Day 03: Fly to Lukla (2800m/9184ft) & commence trekking to Puiyan (2800m/9184ft)

We will be taken to the airport for one of the great flights of the Himalaya. If the sky is clear during our flight, we will get our first views of Everest and the region in which we will be climbing. The Twin Otter aircraft will take us to the hillside village of Lukla, which is the start of our trek to Mera. Here we will meet our camp staff and porters and set off straight away for our first camp at Puiyan.

Day 04: Trek to Pangkongma (2,850m/9348ft), 4-5 hrs walk

After breakfast cross the Poyan Khola, then we turn off the main trade route coming up from the south and join an older route, which climbs steeply to the ridge-line overlooking the Khare Khola. Descending the other side of the ridge, we then contour along the hillside before climbing steadily up to the attractive farming and trading village of Pangkongma. Many expedition members have been made welcome by the villagers here, spending several pleasant hours warming themselves in front of an open fire in the enveloping and welcoming atmosphere of the local's traditional Sherpa homes.

Day 05: Trek to Nashing Dingma (2600m/8528ft), 5-6 hrs walk

Today we climb the half hour or so to the Pangum La (3175m/10410ft) and our gateway toward the Hinku Valley, and now start to head eastward and then in a northerly direction. Today is a solid descent to the Hinku River of at least 900 meters depending on which path we take, and then a climb up to our camp high on the other side near the Surke La. We are once again traveling through a mix of terraced slopes containing grain crops interspersed by undisturbed forests of the upper temperate zone; maples, rhododendrons and fir.

Day 06: Trek to Chalem Kharka (3600m/11808ft), 5-6 hrs walk

After breakfast we climb up to the Source La (3085m/10118ft) we now follow the spine of the Surkie Danda ridge northwards towards Mera and the Hinku and camp part way along at a yak herders clearing or kharka. These next few days are far from teahouse and trekkers trails and should be some of the finest Himalayan wilderness trekking of the trip.

Day 07: Trek to Chunbu Kharka (4200m/13776ft), 5-6 hrs walk

Continuing along the ridge, we climb higher and higher over knolls (lumps in the ridge) of 4000 meters and then 4500 meters. The terrain has now elevated well above the tree line and is grassy slopes and rocky outcrops and cliffs, where birds of prey may be seen flying overhead such as Griffon vulture, lammergeyer or eagles. We then descend to a camp set near a series of five lakes, Panch Pokhari, set beside the river of the Chunbu Kharka.

Day 08: Rest day at Chunbu Kharka

Today is a rest day and a lovely natural setting to explore further.

Day 09: Trek to Hinku valley camp (3600m/11808ft), 5-6 hrs walk

Our route now contours around many ridges on the eastern side of the Hinku, descending lower into forests of rhododendron. Near the valley floor we encounter the devastation caused by a natural damn at the head of the valley bursting in 1998. The valley has been destroyed, leaving boulders, dead trees and silt where once there were old growth forests and meadows. Our campsite is on a pleasant grassy patch, on the now much higher bank of the rocky riverbed.

Day 10 & 11: Trek to Tagnag (4400m/14432ft), 5-7 hrs walk

Today we are now in the Hinku Valley proper, and cross over by way of a yak herder's bridge and join the main trail. The first settlement we stay at the busy village of Kote, primarily servicing the trekking groups that come through for Mera. As a result of the tremendous washout of boulders and debris, the trail follows the riverbed mostly, a good trail among rounded stones and silt. We gain our first views of dramatic peaks of the valley; Kusum Kanguru to our left that stands directly before us. The path then weaves up on to the pastures on the left hand side and pleasant easy trails through to Tagnag. Today we also enjoy our first views of Mera, initially at the confluence of the Sanu Drangka above Kote, if the weather is clear we see the dramatic south face, and then on our final approach into Tagnag. We are now among mountains and starting to prepare for our climb.

Day 12: Trek to Khare (4,940m/16203ft), 3-4 hrs walk

Today we can experience an excellent valley opening out views to the north of the Hinku Nup glacier and the line of peaks beyond. Behind us is the dramatic spire of the less than romantically named 'Peak 35', which has yet to be climbed. Only the last section up to our base camp at Khare is steep and reminds us that we are gaining altitude. It's a short climb and we are there in good time for lunch.

Day 13: Trek to Mera Base Camp (5000m/16400ft), 3-4 hrs walk

A steady climb out of the valley and up through lateral moraine and grassy culverts to our last camp below the snowline. The route itself is fairly straightforward, there are objective hazards and good basic technique and awareness of changing conditions is vital for every individual.

Day 14, 5 & 16: Summit attempt on Mera (6,476m/21,247ft), 5-9 hrs walk

These three days going to plan and the weather on our side, we would move up to a rock and glaciated camp just off the Mera La saddle at approx 5400m/17712ft. Plastic mountaineering boots are usually worn from base through to the summit bid and return. Whilst they feel clumsy they are perfect for the job, providing warmth, protection and stability for the variable terrain including loose rocks, snow and ice. Another camp is set half way up the long North Slope of the mountain, at about 5700m/18696ft near a rock knob. Although it is a shorter distance here, it can be difficult in poor conditions and you are at altitude and are harder and further than it first appears. The summit bid will be made early in the morning (anywhere from 2am to 5am) from this high camp, and take around 4 to 6 hours to make the summit. Whilst the distance doesn't look far, we can assure you it will be hard work, and all the preparations and a positive, tempered attitude will pay off here. It is usually necessary to rope up for much of the summit approach due to crevasse hazards along the route. The route can vary depending on the conditions of the season but usually skirts around a major shoulder in front of us to the back side of the mountain and then traverse in a fairly straightforward approach to the summit knob. As the light comes, we enjoy incredible views across to Baruntse (7129m), Chamlang (7319m) and Nau Lekh (6360m) with Makalu (8481m) looming behind. Further to our left is Everest, peaking over several unnamed peaks of the Hinku. To the south we can see for miles down to the terrain. We aim to make the summit early/mid-morning and return to base camp after summit. The exact schedule will depend on many factors, including the weather, condition of the route and condition of the members. Our contingency of equipment and experienced staff and a time buffer, gives us a fair amount of flexibility to achieve success for all who have worked hard and consistently from the beginning of the expedition. The day will be long, and this is where all the training beforehand, the trek approach, and the right attitude will combine to give you stamina and confidence to be part of a sound team, with optimum chances for the summit.

Day 17 & 18: Commence trek into the Hunku Valley, 5-7 hrs walk

We will need to make a relatively early start today. Once our porters are organized we will commence our most remote stages of the expedition. We descend into the Honku valley near to five large glacial lakes which sprawl out before us. They are known as Panch Pokhari (five lakes). The Amphu Laptsa pass is situated immediately at the head of the valley to our right and is basically the low point on the ridge between the Hunku and the Imja valleys. For this day or so we are in the Hunku. A new vista of peaks span out before us including Ama Dablam to the distant westward, and many unnamed peaks. Camp is set close to the rocks that lead up to the pass. On these stages we ask that members be flexible and co-operative. Camps will be set where conditions allow, and your leader will keep you advised as to each days plan.

Day 19: Rest day at Amphu Laptsa base camp

Final preparations and gear checks for our pass crossing Amphu Laptsa.

Day 20 & 21: Cross Amphu Laptsa (5845m/19171ft) to Island Peak Base Camp (5100m/16728ft), 8-9 hrs walk

After early breakfast an alpine start for our pass crossing. Once again, ferrying across all our loads together with all party members, crew, porters and members takes time. The approach to the pass from the Hunku is deceptive. Facing east and southward there is much more sun and little snow, just a collection of rocks that gradually lead up to the gap we travel through. On the north facing side we find steep slopes of snow that we must take care to descend by fixed ropes to the snow basins below and subsequent moraine and alpine valley beyond. The views from this pass crossing to the peaks of Khumbu are unmatched. Any spare moment one may have whilst we are climbing and descending will allow one to appreciate the spectacle of the peaks of the region.

Day 22: Summit Island Peak (6,189m/20,305ft), 8-9 hrs walk

An alpine start sees us climbing steeply up the lower flanks of the south-east face. The track is well used as this is a popular peak. At times there is a bit of rock scrambling and the rocky spur takes us to a snow ramp that leads to the upper snow fields. The peaks of Makalu and Lhotse come into view as we climb higher. Upon crossing the upper nave, it is necessary to fix ropes up a short but steep ice face that leads on to the summit ridge. The summit ridge is a classic alpine ridge and quite exposed, (we fix ropes here also) and traverse our way to the summit. Although Island Peak appears dwarfed by the seven and eight thousanders surrounding it, it provides a magnificent vantage point to all the peaks south of the stupendous Lhotse face. After some exhilarating moments on the summit we descend by the same route to our base.

Day 23, 24 & 25: Trek to Lukla, 4-7 hrs walk

We begin our exit trek descending through the famous Khumbu Valley to Tangboche Monastery and Namche Bazaar. Namche is known as the Sherpa capital and it is a great place to wonder around, visit the Tibetan stalls or enjoy the Swiss bakeries. We descend the slopes of Namche to the Dudh Kosi joining the main trail to follow at riverside through numerous villages to Phakding. On crossing the bridge, we trek a short distance up and around, to the broad flat spur that Lukla lies upon. The last night is always memorable for an end of trip celebration with all the crew and porters.

Day 26: Fly to Kathmandu

After an early morning flight to Kathmandu our guide transfer you to your hotel. You may have time to relax after long journey and take back your breath and rest at your hotel with ending your Himalayan trip with us. The remainder of the day is at leisure to rest, relax or explore and shop in the town.

Day 27: Departure

Today is free or last minute shopping for souvenirs or gift to your family, friends or relatives for you until your departure flight/drive or to commence any extra trips or activities you may have booked with us. If departing, you'll be transferred to the International Airport for your departure flight to your onwards destination.

As this trek in the Island Peak takes you above the altitude of 6,000m, it is kindly requested to ensure that your insurance policy covers treks that go over 6,000m. In short, its client’s himself/herself has to take the responsibility of all the unforeseen expenses that might result during the trip.

Health, fitness and experience requirements:

The altitudes in the Island Peak trek demand excellent stamina, tough determination and the best health condition. Therefore, every trekker is suggested to consult their doctor before planning this trek. Trekkers are also requested to take advice, medications and permission from their doctor prior to planning their trek. Also, it is highly recommended to take expert guidance from local General Practitioner regarding the required guide walks. Travel clinics can offer the best assistance in absence of GP.

 Some days of the trek require 9-10 hours of walking. Thus the trek demands excellent stamina, therefore, regular exercise and jogging is recommended to build up the required stamina to successfully climb the peak. The trek is not suitable for children.

Moreover, the trail to Island Peak takes you to some of the most demanding sections of Khumbu region. Hence, little training regarding the use of gears and equipments is required for amateur climbers which will be provided by us. If time permits, mock climbing classes are also arranged before climbing the peak. No prior experience is required to climb this peak; however, if you have some experience in climbing, camping and hiking, then these experiences will be counted as a plus point.

We always make sure that our customers get the right value for their money. Therefore, we always attempt to make some of the best arrangements for our customers. To ensure a comfortable stay, we book a tourist standard hotel in Kathmandu, before and after your trek. Basically, the rooms are twin share, where you will have to share your room with another member of your group. However, this totally depends on the size of your group and the availability of rooms in the hotel. On request, triple share can also be arranged. Moreover, if you are looking for a single supplement room, extra charges will be applied.

During the trek, normally your accommodation is arranged in a local guest houses or lodges with shared amenities.

However, in the absence of hot shower, a few buckets of hot water can also be arranged on request.

A full board meal (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and tea and coffee) will be provided from the teahouse menu during the entire trek. Usually, porridge, toast or chapattis, oatmeal and local bread are served for breakfast. Lunch and dinner served during the trek are simply great.
