Island Peak with Everest Base Camp Trekking:
The Island Peak (in Nepali "Ima Tse Peak") is a summit of the Everest massif. It is located near the Lhotse Shar. The Island Peak was first mounted in 1953 by a British team of climbers; it was a preparatory tour for an expedition to the summit of the Mount Everest. Even today, the Island Peak still serves as a preliminary stage to the Everest ascent.
Before climbing the Island Peak, we will travel to Kalapathar. From Kalapathar we have an incomparable view of the highest peaks in the whole world. The Everest Base Camp is also clearly visible.
At the summit of the Island Peak (6,189 m)
The day of the ascent to the Island Peak starts early. The tour begins with a climb along a rocky ridge to the glacier. The path then leads over the glacier to a steep wall of glacier rocks that leads up to the summit.
This tour is a challenge for the human body. With the wonderful view from the summit, this effort is more than rewarded: You have a clear view of the Nuptse (7,879 m), the Lhotse (8,501 m), the Lhotse Milddle Peak (8,410 m) and the Lhotse Shar (8,383 m) in the North, the Makalu (8,475 m) and the Baruntse (7,129 m) in the East and the Peak of Amadablam (6,812 m) in the South (famous for expeditions).
