The Island Peak climb is an ideal choice for all those who love mountain climbing and are seeking for the start. Island Peak is relatively easier to climb and best for beginners. In this journey, first, you will be going for the trek starting from Lukla and all the way to Chhukung village before climbing the peak.
The trek will take you through Sherpa villages where you will receive warm hospitality from the Sherpas, often known as mighty climbers. Local hot beverages are served at tea houses along the way with traditional Nepali cuisine. They are sure to fill your taste buds with some unique flavors. Although the community life is not so prosperous, the service they provide is homely and welcoming. Ancient monasteries are seen decorated with prayer wheels and prayer flags which exhibit the religious inclination of Sherpa people towards Buddhist culture. After walking for days along the trekking trail, you will finally reach Island Peak Base camp only on the 9th day.
As you will be climbing the steep peak you must be in good physical health but no prior experience of scaling up mountains is required. Our experienced guides will orient you before climbing the Island Peak. You will reach the summit and experience the sense of achievement and enjoy the success when you get back to the base camp. You will be reaching the highest point of the summit at 6,189m/20,305ft. In addition to exploring the Island Peak, the trek will involve experiencing the great beauty of mountainous peaks in the Khumbu region including Mount Everest, Mount Lhotse, Mount Ama Dablam and many others.
Mountain climbing is a great experience and this trip will surely give you the experience that you will remember for long. If you are seeking for more challenging mountain climbing then you may go for 29 days’ Ama Dablam expedition.
