This article is an itinerary.


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

Contents

Understand

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

Get in

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

Walk

Villages


Itineraries

Lodging

  • Chukhung - Panorama Lodge - great sun room with views over the valleys and mountains beyond, and the facilities are exceptionally clean and well-maintained -- a very special recommendation here.
  • Dingboche - Island Peak View Lodge
  • Dzongla - The Himalayan View Lodge -- a simple but clean and friendly place to spend the night.


Camping

  • Island Peak Base Camp at 5000m.
