Island Peak Trek

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search
This article is an itinerary.


Island Peak (6,189m), officially known as Imja Tse, is a mountain in the Khumbu (Everest) region in Nepal.

Understand[edit]

The trek to Island Peak initially follows the main Everest Base Camp Trek route, but separates at Dingboche. It can be made as a circular trek that takes in some of the Himalaya's most spectacular scenery. The climb to the top of the peak is moderately easy (by Himalayan standards), but a guide and porters are essential.

Prepare[edit]

Get in[edit]

  • A climbing permit currently costs $350 USD per up to four tourists, as this summit is considered a "Group B" NMA Peak.
