Island Peak Climbing

Island Peak Climbing in the Everest region- Wonder the view of mountains.

Trip Overview

Island Peak Climbing Overview

Island Peak is a peak, but it comes under a trekking peak. Everybody can reach the top of this peak: beginner, mediocre, and experienced. And our Island Peak is programmed with the famous trekking trail of the Everest Region. This peak is influential, and you can see this on the adventurers, climbers, and trekkers.

The trekkers are almost climbers because they can reach the summit of Island Peak easily.

As you are at the top of Island Peak, the circle of the mountains that comes to your view is beautiful which will make you stare, and all you can do at your fullest is to see them continuously. Some of the prominent mountains are Nuptse (7,879m), Lhotse (8,501m), Lhotse Central (8,410m) and Lhotse Shar (8,383m). At the same time, you love to indulge in the inescapable beauty of Makalu (8475m), Baruntse (7129m), and Amadablam (6812m). This is the most beautiful part of the Island Peak Climbing.

This massive height of Island Peak, that is, 6189 m, shows you the view of the Everest Region, beyond your imagination.

As a describer, as a climber, Travel Max Guide finds the summit day impressive and most of its clients have found it above their expectations. For them, summit day is a pleasure because it becomes adventurous by including rock climbing and glacier crossing. To make this day a huge success, our climbing guides work perfectly and efficiently. Our climbing guide provides you training on climbing at the base of Island Peak.

Accommodation

In Kathmandu, you are going to stay at the 3-star category hotel (Value). During trekking and climbing, you will spend your night in a tea house and tented camp. The tea house is a lodge or a guest house. The tea house is an old name for a lodge because trekkers and climbers gave this name 40 years ago. After all, it used to sell only tea then. Now they also sell meals as well as provide bedrooms for the trekkers and climbers. The old name tea house is still used by the trekking agencies in Nepal. Hence, the name tea house trek. Tea house differs from village to village where you are going to spend your night. Some have attached bathrooms as well as running a hot water facility, while others have only basic facilities, that is, you have to share a toilet and a bathroom with others. This is so because they are located in a high altitude and the remotest area. Some provide dormitory-style accommodation, but they also provide you a bed, a pillow, a blanket, and a bedsheet still, you must have your sleeping bag.

First step in the Everest Base Camp

I was in Nepal for the Everest Base Camp Trek. Outstanding sceneries and good hospitality. On the way to the base camp, I got an opportunity to visit Bthe uddhist monastery as well as got some information about Buddhism. That was great. Our guide and porter were awesome. Very kind and helpful. Thank you, TMG.

Annapurna Circuit Trek

Trekking with Travel Max Guide was an amazing experience. My selection of a trip and the company were excellent and of a right decision. In each moment of my walk, I came across adventure and discovered something new. I remember my first step on the Everest Base Camp. The view was spectacular. Passing through the Sherpa communities and staying in Namche Bazaar is unforgettable. I miss the trip very much. Anyway, thank you so much for your service while I was in Nepal. See you next time for the Annapurna Circuit Trek.

Everest trekking in Nepal

Originally from the United State of America from the city of Los Angeles where life is busy and rush. I made a trip with TMG. It’s a new experience than I excepted. I found Nepalese people really welcoming. They really love tourists. While trekking in the Everest region, I got time to spend with nature, gained plenty of ideas of culture and tradition from the Himalayas. The trip was totally mind-blowing. TMG has a good team spirit and is dedicated to serving guest and trekkers.
