Island peak (6,189m/20,305ft) is one of the main climbing peaks of the Everest Area. The professionally designed Island peak climbing itinerary takes you to the acclimatization hike to the most popular trekking destination of Everest Base camp and Kala Pathar first for the close up views of Everest before scaling the peak. Your historical effort to summit the peak will be rewarded with probably one of the best panoramic views in the world as you feel Lhotse, Nuptse, Baruntse, Ama Dablam and Makalu are almost touching the tip of your nose.

Descending with a sense of achievement, our route takes us into many cultural sights; Pangboche, a traditional Sherpa village; Tangboche, famous for its ornately decorated Tibetan monastery and Khumjung with Hillary school inside the clouds and mysterious Yeti scalp.
