Island Peak is one of the most famous climbing peaks in Nepal. Also called Imja Tse, it lies on the top of Chukung glacier between the massif Ama Dablam and Lhotse. Spend time acclimatizing in Namche Bazaar before heading for your climbing adventure, trekking through the high valleys of the Khumbu region before hiking on to Chukung. Enjoy the spectacular views from Island Peak after your summit – Ama Dablam and Lhotse are always astounding from this view. There are some difficult sections of climbing, such as a mixed rock and ice will at a 45 degree slope leading to a narrow summit ridge. Physical fitness is important for this climb, as well as proper acclimatization.
