Ebc trek X Island Peak -18D/17N Print This Page

Ebc Trek X Island Peak is a perfect combination to start scaling peak in short interval of time.

Island Peak also known as Imja Tse, is a mountain in the Himalayas of eastern Nepal. The peak was named Island Peak in 1951 by Eric Shipton's party since it appears as an island in a sea of ice when viewed from Dingboche. The peak was later renamed in 1983 to Imja Tse but Island Peak remains the popular choice. The peak is actually an extension of the ridge coming down off the south end of Lhotse Shar. 

Island Peak trek spans of around 16 days. The trip begins after landing in Lukla airport. Spending couple of nights in Namche Bazaar the climbers acquaint gradually before actually climbing the Island Peak. It takes four to five days to reach the Base camp of Island Peak. Here in the base camp climbers have to familiarize themself with the climatic condition before actually pushing themself to the summit. The ascent to the top starts off with along a ridge where climbers use foot traction device popularly known as crampons along with a rope to elevate upwards. The way across the glacier is easy with occasional fractures in them. After reaching the top, exquisite view of Lhotse Shar, Makalu, Baruntse and Ama Damblam is seen. This peak was first ascended by Tenzing Norgay who was a part of British Team preparing for the Everest Triumph.
