Island Peak Climbing in the Everest region of Nepal is one of the major climbing peak for anyone wishing to gain a lifetime achievement of ascending to the altitude of 6,189m/20,305ft. Island Peak Climbing does not require more than 2nights and 3 days for the summit from it’s base camp. Hence, it an economic and time-savior peak climbing package in Nepal.
After summiting the Island Peak, the mind-boggling views of the snowy peaks of Nuptse, Lhotse, Lhotse Middle Peak and the unclimbed Lhotse Shar, all over 8000 m will certainly make all your efforts seem worthwhile. Nevertheless, the gigantic Everest is not exactly visible from the Island peak, Lhotse will cover it from the front because of the location, elevation and other technical aspects.
Despite being the trekking peak with technical climbing aspects, trekkers and climbers who are physically well-maintained can ascend this peak with the instruction and assistance from the Sherpas (Climbing guide). However, some prior experience to similar altitude would be an added asset for the trekkers.
