Island Peak (Imja tse) Climbing trail trekking will takes you right into the heartland of the Khumbu, Gokyo and Everest Base Camps. Island Peak is located on the Everest area and has quite an arresting and highly frosty West face that ascends from the Lhotse glacier. On the Island Peak Climbing adventure, as you ascend Gokyo Ri and Kala Pattar, you are provided with the opportunity to acclimatize while also getting a commanding view of the highest mountains in the world. On the Island Peak Climbing you will also cross the seldom used Chola pass and Kongma La Pass while getting to the top of one of the most popular peaks on the Everest area. The blend of Everest base camp trekking and Island Peak Climbing is most likely one of the best excursions in Nepal loved intensely by adventure seekers. Island Peak Climbing is a difficult adventure not only because it is challenging but also because of accessibility issues. The normal route for Island Peak Climbing is South the East Flank and the South-West Ridge. The base camp for the Island Peak Climbing is usually set at Pareshaya Gyab. During heavy snowfall while on Island Peak Climbing, it is advisable to avoid the possibility of an avalanche.

To the east, rising above the frozen waves of the Lhotse Shar glacier, is Cho polu(6734m/ 22093ft), beyond which can be seen the red granite mass of Makalu (8475m/ 27805ft). To the south of the Imja glacier and icy flutings of Baruntse (7720m/ 25328ft) and the Amphu peaks lead the eye to the lofty pinnacle of Ama Dablam (6856m/ 22493ft), which is liked a giant sea ·stack guarding the entrance to the glacial bay in which Island peak stands
