Peak Climbing in Nepal » Island Peak Climbing (6189m).

Island Peak Climbing
Island Peak Climbing is one of the most famous in Nepal. It stands in the Everest Region, reaches a height of 6,189m and is popularly known as Island Peak, a name given to it by Eric Shipton’s party in 1951, as the peak resembles an island in a sea of ice when viewed from Dingboche. Later in 1983, the peak was given the Nepali name Imja Tse. The peak was first ascended in 1953 by a British team as part of their preparations for climbing Everest. Tenzing Norgay was one of the members of the first ascent team. The peak is actually part of the south ridge of Lhotse Shar and forms a semicircle of cliffs that rise to the north of Nuptse, Lhotse, Middle Peak and Lhotse Shar.

Climbing Island Peak Expeditions can either go by road to Jiri and then by trail to Solulukhumbu or fly to Lukla. A day’s trek from Lukla takes you to the entrance to Sagarmatha National Park. Another day’s trek reaches the town of Namche Bazaar, the gateway to Everest’s base camp. The best idea from here is to continue to either Everest Base Camp or Kala Pattar, at 5545m, from where there is a famous view of Everest. Either trek is good for acclimatizing before the climb of Island Peak. One of very good trek for acclimatizing is to walk along the Gokyo valley, then to cross the Chola pass, visiting both Kala Pattar and Everest Base Camp, before moving on to Chukhung.

Climbing Island Peak about 5 hour trek reaches Base Camp at 5200m. The camp is in a small valley with Island Glacier on the right. From Base Camp we climb steeply up to High camp 5500m and set up a high camp. There is rocky trail at first part. You need to across a glacier and steep walk to the Island peak Ridge. We need fix rope about 150m summit ridge to the top about 200 m fix line then you reach on the top of Island Peak. Island Peak offers you great views of Lhotse wall, Makalu, cho oyu, Amadablam and more.…More Pictures>>>
