About Island Peak Climbing

Island Peak Climbing is one of the most popular peak climbing trips in Nepal. The peak is located in the Khumbu region, which is locally known as Imja Tse. It is an attractive white peak that can be explored during the trek to Everest base camp. Climbing the Island peak is suitable for both, enjoying the peak climbing in Nepal and explores breathtaking Himalayan panoramas of the Everest region.

Island peak climbing trip begins from Lukla and takes the route to Namche Bazaar and Khumjung. They are the bustling Sherpa town and have Sherpa cultural heritages. Reaching Tengbuche and visiting the monastery, you head to Dingbuche. From this point, the trail splits to Chhukung. Following the Imja Khola, you reach the Island peak base camp, where you can have a pre-climbing session. Island peak is ideal for climbing even for the beginners. Frolic Adventure organizes the trip excellently and arranges all the required peak climbing materials.
