Island Peak Climbing
This is our super adventure climb package that includes the three famous peaks in the Everest Region – Island, Lobuche, and Kyajo Ri. The Island Peak (6,189m/20,305ft), originally known as the Imjatse, is perhaps the most popular climbing peak in the Everest region.
The Island Peak derives its name owing to its striking location in the middle of the Chhukung valley, like an Island on a sea of ice. Mt. Lobuche (6119m/20,070 ft) climb is a bit more challenging than the Island Peak. And Kyajo Ri at 6,186 m/20,290 ft is even more technical than Lobuche. Hence, our package has been carefully designed keeping in mind proper acclimatization and gradual ascent. We are sure that the bliss you will experience after scaling three of the most famous Peaks in the Everest region – Island, Lobuche and Kyajo Ri – would certainly linger in your memory forever.
First, we follow the famous Everest trail via Namche, Tengboche, Digboche and Chukung. After summiting the Island Peak, we retrace our path to Digboche, and head toward Lobuche. Making the Lobuche Summit, we take the route to Gokyo after crossing the famous Cho La pass. The peak climbing adventure concludes with summiting of Kyajo Ri and we retrace our path to Lukla via Namche.
