OverviewIsland Peak (6160m) - also known as Imja-Tse in Nepali- offers a superb panorama of the Khumbu area from its summit. It faces Nuptse and the 8000m peaks Lhotse, Lhotse Middle and Lhotse Shar. On the summit, climbers can spot the Cho Polu (6.734mt.) rising above the frozen waves of the Lhotse Shar glacier. Furthermore, if the weather conditions permit, Mt. Makalu (8,475m) is also visible to the East.
Island Peak is an excellent way to venture into altitudes above 6000m without great technical difficulty. Thanks to its location, the acclimatization to the altitude can be easily accomplished through a trek to Everest Base Camp or any other trek in the region. It is a great add-on activity for the adventure seeker. This peak is also considered as a first phase Expedition to be prepared for a technical climb like Mt. Ama Dablam in these days the crevasses and icefalls are growing enroot due to the climate change. Some of the climbers had already the Island peak is an expedition peak not trekking peak only.
