Island Peak (6,189m/20,305ft), known locally as Imja Tse, is the most popular climbing peak in Nepal. The peak appears as an island in a sea of ice when viewed from Dingboche. Hence, it was named as Island Peak in 1953. Island Peak Climbing is popular for its difficulty and beauty shining in the Everest region. During the trip, you can explore the pristine tradition, culture, and religion of the Himalayan Sherpa people. You can witness amazing glacial moraines, Buddhist monasteries, prayer rocks, and other small chortens.
For a successful Island Peak Climbing, your physique plays a vital role. You must be ready starting from your fitness to the trekking and climbing experience. It might take you a year (in max) or 4-6 months to prepare yourself for the climb. Your previous experiences on mountaineering are also important. The key to success builds up with your ability to adapt to the lack of oxygen and your technical experiences.
The best season for Island Peak climbing is from March to May (Spring) and from September to November (Autumn). However, the winter is also a great time to climb if you are well prepared for the cold weather. In the crisp and cold month of December the views of the mountains are crystal clear and there are fewer tourists around. The duration of the Island Peak Climb can be lengthened or shortened according to your preference. Adventure Connexion will arrange lodge accommodation, food, as well as all the necessary climbing and camping equipment.
