Island peak expedition is truly an unforgettable experience. Island Peak (the name of the mountain speaks for itself). Island Peak is like an island in a huge sea of ice among the surrounding giants Nuptse 7,879 meters, Lhotse 8,501 meters, and Makalu 8,475 meters. In 1983, Nepal decided to rename Island Peak under a Nepalese name: Imja Tse. The name Imja is found in the name of the river Imja Khola, which is located in the southern part of the Lhotse. It is also the name of the immense lake (Imja Tcho) located just below the Island Peak, upstream of Chhukung. Island Peak base camp is located on the southern flank of the mountain, on the lateral moraine of Lake Imja, at an altitude of 5,050 meters.

The Island Peak expedition is ideal for those who are going to get the first experience of Himalayan ascents. The route to the Base Camp of Island peak passes through one of the most beautiful trekking routes of the world - the gorge of Solu Khumbu. During the crossing you will see the top of Ama Dablam in all its glory, you will pass through the blossoming rhododendron forest; visit the Sherpa capital of Namche Bazar and the famous Thangboche monastery.

A Life-Changing Expedition!

A Life-Changing Expedition!

From the moment we got in contact with the team at Mountain Sherpa trekking and Expeditions, we knew we were in good hands. They handled our entire two weeks island peak expeditions. It was an absolute blast trek and climbing experience in Khumbu regions. There wasn't a minute we felt unqualified or uncertain of what our plans were and I cannot recommend this company enough. We went in May during the spring season and we had great weather during our expedition.it was one of the most rewarding and life-changing experiences, I've ever had. It would be silly to use any other company besides Mountain Sherpa trekking and Expeditions for your trek and expeditions needs in Himalaya.

Best of the Best - Island peak Expedition without question!

Without a doubt, Mountain Sherpa trekking and Expeditions makes the island peak expeditions experience. THE experience of a lifetime! Owner pasang Sherpa immaculate care to detail, sensitive skill to anticipate and good-natured humor are supreme. Prior to the big feat, he and his crew left nothing to chance, fully preparing our group of 12 - through every detail (visas, hotel, training and more!) - for a successful climb. On the trail, we couldn't have asked for better. The mountain Sherpa guides were all very well informed, expert, helpful and honestly cared for each person on our team, going above and beyond at all turn points. The climbing Sherpa guides were equally proficient, thoughtful and caring, right down to morning tea delivered tent side with much singing, laughing. Having climbed in many nations, Mountain Sherpa trekking and Expeditions comes with the highest of recommendations.

Amazing island peak expedition with Mountain Sherpa

We had wonderful island peak expedition with the Mountain Sherpa team. Very proficient, very experienced, very trustworthy, Mountain Sherpa trekking and expeditions is a dedicated team which welcomes and travels with travelers like us to progress the lives of Sherpa people living in Khumbu region. Our guide Lhakpa sonam Sherpa and his team were very nice on a gorgeous trek and climb.
Lhakpa was always attentive to know us in good shape. Mountain Sherpa trekking arranges our flight, hotel to permit without any difficulty.
There are so many trekking agencies in Nepal, we strongly recommend Mountain Sherpa team. I have trekked extensively all around the world. And we have really cherished their service and manner. Thank you
