Island peak expedition
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.
