My friend and I had a wonderful peak-climbing expedition of island peak. From the airport pickup, hotel in Kathmandu, Sherpa guide, Sherpa lodge accommodation, food and all the way throughout trip was excellent.

Our sherpa Guide Lhakpa sona was experience, knowledgeable and good guiding skill around Everest region and island peak. Island peak Climbing was difficult, challenging, adventurous and also thrilling experience. The view from the top of island peak was breathtaking. We are so blessed with weather and had a wonderful time in Nepal. Lhakp sona and porters help us in any way possible during trekking and peak climbing.

Wonderful Sherpa guide for Island Peak and Lobuche Peak.

Pre-trip Info
Value for Money
it is easy to characterize your services: You and your team did an excellent job! Booking via internet is - especially for trekking in Nepal -a big challenge. So many agencies, so many itineraries, so many mountains, so much choice. I found your agency by chance, and my first experiences were brilliant: Very fast response time for answering all my emails, including detailed answers for all my questions. Even when I made a proposal for a change of the itinerary (I added Lobuche peak) you did all your best to realize my plans. During the trek days went by and it seemed that you even made a deal with the Nepalese weather god - perfect conditions for three weeks in a row, so it was easy to reach all my goals together with your excellent sherpa Tendi: the summits of two 6000 meter peaks: Island Peak and Lobuche Peak.

Unforgettable moments!

Pasang, thanks for this wonderful stay in Nepal. I can fully recommend your agency and its services to other trekkers or mountaineers.

You need good stamina for a long day effort while climbing it. You can climb Island Peak without any previous climbing experience and skills of using climbing equipment but knowledge on using equipment and previous experience would be beneficial although not mandatory because a pre-ice climbing training is provided to you in Base Camp to make you skillful on using climbing gears such as ropes, ice pick, harness, crampons.

We provide you deluxe rooms at international standard hotels in Kathmandu with breakfast included. Along the trekking routes up to chukhung best available sherpa lodges generally provide basic clean facilities with a mattress and a quilt or blanket. We can also offer you sleeping bags if needed (to be returned after the trip) but it is a good idea to always have your own sleeping gear. The lodges in trekking routes generally provide single and double rooms, or seldom a dormitory. At times when possible, dining will be around a bon fire. In tea houses, food will be prepared in the kitchen which you should not enter without permission. The toilet in tea houses provides essential and basic facilities and will be outside the room must of the places. During Climbing Period, we provide quality Tent with Matters.

Most teahouses (lodges) in trails cook a delicious range of mostly vegetarian fare. Pasta, tuna bakes, noodles, potatoes, eggs, daal bhat(rice and lentils), bread, soup, fresh vegetables (variety depends on the season) and even some desserts like apple pies, pancakes, and some interesting attempts at custard. You will find a lot of garlic on the menu because it assists with acclimatization – eat some every day. In many larger villages you may find some meat items on the menu. You can always get hot chocolate, tea, and hot lemon drinks, as well as soft drinks, and treats like chocolate and crisps. Each day dinner and breakfast will be at a lodge you'll stay at while lunch will be taken on the way to destination.

Yes, our entire climbing Sherpa guides have all received 45-day training from the Nepal Mountaineering Association. The guides have also received high altitude first aid training from KEEP (Kathmandu Environmental Education Project). Please check our Trekking Guides Profiles and Training Certificates.

In major places, we arrange guesthouse with hot shower. And in rest of the places, water in bucket will be provided for shower.

Our company insures all our staff members, including guides, cooks, Sherpas and porters. Please browse though Company Information pages to view insurance details.
