Island Peak is one of the most famous peaks in Nepal for adventure lover and Climbers, which is the pseudo name given to the Imja Tse peak of Nepal by Eric Shipton’s team in 1953. Probably the easiest and the most affordable peak climb in Nepal, the Island peak climbing takes you to heights of 6000 meters above the sea level for the mountain experience that everyone desires. It is also the most popular peak climbing in Nepal because of its relative ease and affordable costs. It is also known as an “Island in the sea of ice” because of the highly glaciated west face of the Island peak that rises from the Lhotse Glacier. It is an appropriate place for amateurs to experience the Himalayas and take a closer look at the high peaks, including the Mt. Everest.

The Island peak is an extension of the South Ridge, which rises to form the summit of Island peak. The peak is a counter part of Lhotse Shar that is separated by a small col. The south-west part of the mountain is a common route used by the trekkers to the south summit of the Island Peak.The Island Peak climbing not only allows you to experience the high altitudes of the Himalayas but also feasts your eyes with the magnificent views of the Himalayas. Including t hike to Everest base camp and Kala Pathhar, this relatively easy trekking peak is also fun in its own way.

Island Peak or Imja Tse not only provides an fun climb in the Himalayas but also allows you to witness the panoramic and pristine scenery of Himalayas, namely Nuptse (7,879m), Lhotse (8,501m), Lhotse Middle Peak (8,410m) and Lhotse Shar (8,383m) which make a semi-circle in the north view, Makalu (8475m) in the east view, and Baruntse and Amadablam in the south view.

Island peak is surely the first peak to climb for a complete beginner.
