About 19 Days EBC Trek with Island Peak Climbing
Everest Base Camp Trek with Island peak takes you not only to the renowned Base Camp of 17 days and 16 nights of the highest mountain in the world but also to an exciting adventure of mountain climbing. Island Peak, at the height of 6,189m, is popular among the novice climbers and is used as a preparation for higher mountains like Everest. Though physically demanding, it is less technical and can be climbed by anyone reasonably fit.
The trek will begin after a short flight to Lukla. The trails will take you to Phakding, a UNESCO World Heritage Site (Sagarmatha National park) in the green valley of Dudh Koshi, and then to the famous Namche Bazzar where you will spend two nights for acclimatization. Trekking will continue from Tengboche to Pheriche to Lobuche; these culturally rich Sherpa villages are full of Chortens, Mani Walls, museum and amazing views of the Himalayas. Before the awaited Island Peak, you will visit the Everest Base Camp and climb up Kalapathar. The Kalapathar is popular among the trekkers as one can get a full base to top view of Mount Everest on sunrise or sunset view. Finally, you will trek to the base camp of Island Peak and summit it on the 15th day. Island Peak was named so due to its position at the center of the Valley, like an Island in a sea of ice. Its local name is Imja Tse. The hard work is well awarded by a 360 degree panorama view with mountains like Lhotse, Ama Dablam and Makalu. From there, you will trek back up and down until the exciting experience of Everest Base Camp Trek with Island peak comes to an end back in Kathmandu. We also offer the famous Everest Base Camp trekking.
