Island Peak lies in upper Imja Valley of the Khumbu Valley, surrounded by snow covered mountains. Island Peak is taken as the mostly climbed Trekking Peak in Nepal. It can be climb in both the spring and autumn season. Island Peak looks like an island in the sea from above Dingboche. Island Peak offers very beautiful outlook of Everest, Lhotse, Amadablam, Makalu and many more snow covered mountains.
Island peak was named by Eric Shipton in 1952 and the first ascent was made by members of the 1953 British Everest team as a training climb. The climbing is challenging for the beginning alpine climber and the summit ridge provides one of the most dramatic views in the mornings that a Himalayan climber could dream of. The summit of Island Peak stands nearby to the South Face of Lhotse, one of the world’s largest ice walls, and offers stunning views of beautiful Ama Dablam and Makalu.
