The marvelous Island Peak Climbing package is the most popular peak climb in Nepal. After an amazing foothill journey, make your way up the mass of rock and ice that looms over the Chhuknug Valley. At the top of Island Peak (6189 meters), be confronted with a heart-stopping panorama of the Everest region. Take a look around you and see glimmering mountain peaks in each direction. To the east, Makalu (8481 meters) and Baruntse (7129 meters) appear at eye level. To the north, Nuptse (7879 meters) and Lhotse (8501 meters) shine bright. To the south of us, the iconic Ama Dablam peak (6812 meters) stares back at us.

Without a doubt, the experience of climbing Island Peak is one that you will cherish forever. Climbers are overcome with a sense of pleasure and pride during the moments at the top of the peak. Take some photos to bring back memories, but also try and admire them in the present. Those moments of standing at the top of Island Peak only happen once!

As with all peak climbing excursions, the ascent does not come without a little work beforehand. However, it’s not so much work when you are enjoying it! After flying to Tenzing-Hillary Airport in Lukla (aka the most dangerous airport in the world), begin hiking up towards Namche Bazaar. Through forests and villages, the expansive trade and tourism town provide a perfect opportunity to learn about the Sherpa community.
Our level of energy and excitement builds as we near Island Peak Base Camp. At Island Peak Base Camp, we realize we are truly in the mountains. We take a day to acclimatize and brief on the upcoming ascent. Then we head further to High Camp to again acclimatize and have one last look to make sure the gear is as ready as we are. Finally, the time comes. Wake up in the middle of the night, before sunrise, to begin the climb.
We must maximize our chances of good weather. At the jaw-dropping peak, we celebrate a successful climb and take some photos. The splendor of the view cannot be described! You must see if to believe it. After some time at the peak, head back down to Lukla. What a memorable adventure!!The Island Peak Climbing itinerary has been designed by expert climbers to maximize acclimatization periods and prevent altitude sickness. We strive to do everything to allow you to have a successful ascent. If you would like to extend the journey for a trip to Gokyo Lakes or Everest Base Camp, let us know! We can manage the itinerary and costs accordingly.
Also, novice and expert climbers alike can take part in Island Peak Climbing.Climb Island Peak any time of the year. The best times to make the trip, though, are during the spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) seasons. These seasons provide the best weather and clearest skies. It is possible to climb in the winter, though the snow can pose additional challenges. Third Eye Adventure Pvt. Ltd. handles the trek with complete management. If you have any questions about the climb, do ask!

Having travel insurance will not only give you peace of mind while climbing but also offer financial protection and assistance in case of emergencies. By investing in travel insurance your climbing confidence will be boosted by knowing that you have reliable support and assistance should the need arise.

Faq icon toggle

On average it will take around 16 to 20 days to climb the Island Peak, including acclimatization days and trekking to and from the base camp. However, the exact duration can vary depending on the itinerary you choose from the trekking agency, weather conditions, and individual performance.

Climbers should always choose an itinerary that has enough days for acclimatization to reduce altitude sickness and enjoy the adventure comfortably. We suggest you not to rush by skipping the itinerary days which can cause various trouble in the journey. Always try to trek responsibly by taking care of your health as it is the first thing that you should always be aware of.

Hiring the guide for the Island Peak Climbing is not mandatory but it is highly recommended. You must be prepared for all the circumstances that may arise while you are alone on the climbing route. If you are a beginner or first time heading for trekking in the mountain region of Nepal you suggest you hire a professional Guide with you.

Guides bring invaluable expertise, local knowledge, and assistance in navigating the challenging terrain and technical aspects of the climb. Also to make your overall climbing journey more memorable and adventurous while minimizing the risk, hiring the Guide will be the wise choice.

I have been using and loving Third Eye Adventure since 2011 now – and had nothing but good experiences with Ganesh and his team on each of my treks and expeditions that they have provided logistics support for.

One of the best experiences of our life for sure! We completed succesfully the EBC trek through Gokyo and Chola Pass. On the third day we decided to add Island Peak summit and thanks to Third Eye Adventure everything was organised to perfection. We couldn’t be happier, for sure we will repeat and aim to higher peaks.
