Island Peak

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 classic are ten fold.
