Island Peak Climbing - 20 Days



Island Peak which is also known as Imja Tse  is situated on the pinnacle of the glacier known as Chukung, connecting Ama Dablam and Lhotse Mountains. It is the most hunted trekking spot due to its tough geographical structure. The Island Peak is located in the heart of Khumbu region which is recognized as a moderate Climbing peak of Everest area. Island Peak was the name given to the mountain in 1951 by Eric Shipton’s who thought it to be reminiscent of an island in a sea of ice. It is said that every year 300 groups of people try to scale this peak . It provides an outstanding chance to ascend the Himalayan summit as well as thrilling hike towards Everest Base Camp plus Kala Patthar. The most difficult part is considered as a mixed rock, ice wall that lies in the slope slides which leads next to the thin summit edge. An appropriate time for climbing Island Peak is in the month of April to May in Spring Season and October to November in Autumn season.

Reaching the summit is a difficult task and hence when you reach the top of the Peak you will be properly rewarded with the splendid observation from there.

Acclimatization

To enable all expedition members to acclimatize well and hence maximize their chances of success, our expedition programs are prepared with sufficient time for acclimatization. Adaptation to the altitude takes time and there can be no short-cuts, even if supplementary oxygen is used in the final stages. The atmospheric pressure at the base camp is half of that at the sea level. A thorough program of acclimatization is built into the itinerary which consists of regulated height ascents, followed by descents and rests before the final ascent to the summit. This will prevent the climbers to get rid from altitude sickness.
