Trip Introduction

This is the most popular trekking peak in Nepal. From Dingboche the mountain is seen as an island in a sea of ice. The summit is interesting and attractive with a highly glaciated west face rising from the Lhotse Glacier.The mountain itself is the extension of the South Ridge of Lhotse Shar seperated by a small col. The ridge rising to the south from this point leads to the summit of Island Peak. The extension of this ridge descending south-west is the part of the normal route of ascent and leads to the South Summit. Imja Tse not only provides an enjoyable climb but also provides some of the most spectacular scenery of Himalayas in the Khumbu region. Seen from the summit the giant mountains, Nuptse (7,879m), Lhotse (8,501m), Lhotse Middle Peak (8,410m) and Lhotse Shar (8,383m) make a semi circle in the north. The views of Makalu (8475m) in the east, Baruntse and Amadablam in the south add more charm for climbing Island Peak.

Our trip planner and the travel team provided us a worldclass experience for a 6 day trip to Iceland. From the initial planning stages and throughout the trip, our trip planner stayed in touch to make sure we had everything we needed. Our guide did a great job of showing us the sites and sharing information about the history and culture of Iceland. We would highly recommend this travel team to anyone who wants to experience this beautiful country and its people in a bespoke way.
