Island peak is situated in the Khumbu region of Nepal. It is referred to as an Island peak because of its remarkable resemblance to an island becoming a sea of ice when viewed from Dingboche. The Peak was first ascended in 1953 by a British Expedition team as training for climbing Mt. Everest. The peak is a section of the south ridge of Lhotse Shar, the main area forms an arc of cliffs that advances to the north of the summits of Nuptse, Lhotse, Middle peak and Lhotse Shar. The peak is also colloquially known as ‘Imja tse’.

Physical Condition & Experience Requirements
Island peak climb requires you to be in good physical condition, however climbing experience is not essential. The peak is technically less challenging than other peaks in Nepal. However, having some knowledge in using climbing equipment is still an asset. You will need to have previous high-altitude trekking experience. Basic ice-climbing training will be provided before the summit using climbing gear such as ropes, ice pick, harness and crampons.
Best Time for Island Peak Climbing
Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November) are the best months for this trip. Although Island Peak can be climbed during winter, the cold temperature might not be suitable for everyone.
My husband and I embarked on the Everest Base Camp trek with Jangbu during November 2013. It was undoubtedly the most incredible trip of our lives – with Jangbu. So if you are looking for someone with A-class experience and the incredible personal touch, you need not look any further!
