Island Peak Climbing

Island Peak is also known as Imja Tse, one of the most popular trekking peaks in Nepal for mountain climbing. Our package combines the classic Everest Base Camp Trek with climbing one of Nepal’s best trekking peaks. Well, the combination of Everest Base Camp Trek and Island Peak Climbing is most probably the best trip in Nepal for those who seek adventure here. After visiting Everest Base Camp and walking up to Kalapatthar, we head to Island Peak Base Camp in the next valley. The mountain is seen as an island in a sea of ice from Dingboche. Island Peak not only provides an enjoyable climb but also provides some of the most spectacular scenery of Himalayas in the Everest Region. You can enjoy the giant mountains including Nuptse, Lhotse, Lhotse Middle Peak, and Lhotse Shar from the summit of Island Peak. Apart from this, the beautiful views of Makalu in the east and Baruntse and Amadablam in the south add more charm in this Peak Climbing.
The normal route for climbing Island Peak is South East Flank & South-East Ridge normally. The base camp it set at Pareshaya Gyab between Island Peak and lateral moraine of the Imja Glacier. The Island Peak Climbing would be suitable for a climber visiting the Himalayas for the first time or keen hill walkers with previous mountaineering experience using crampons and ice axe. Actually, Island Peak is a more technical peak than some of the other trekking peaks in Nepal. And it starts with an easy scramble along a rock ridge to a glacier and above there is a steep snow headwall leading to a classic summit ridge. In fact, these views from the top are superb including the south face of Lhotse and Amadablam.
We are sure that this trip is going to be one of your lifelong memories. We have designed the very flexible itineraries with most competitive prices. We will be happy enough if we get a chance to serve you with this Peak Climbing package. We will make your holidays in Nepal worth remembering forever. We cordially welcome you here in Kathmandu.

What Client Say

I have made a trip to Helambu circuit with Cold Feet in March 2009 and had a great time. Our Guide Suman did fantastic job. I will recommend Cold Feet to any of my friends and family who are traveling to Nepal. Tom Manzo Tucson Arizona

November 2013 - I just returned from the most amazing trek to Annapurna Base Camp with ColdFeet! Gopi and his staff were so helpful before I even arrived in Nepal and continue to be during my stay in this amazing country! Sunaina was an awesome, fun and caring guide. I would highly recommend ColdFeet to anyone looking for tours/treks in the Nepal area! jackie o. CANADA

Hey We just came back from a trip to langtang. Organization was very efficient, we planned the trip in two days and just went right away to Langtang! Beautiful place to see, good accommodation and very friendly guide, thanks Coldfeet! Nicolas Lacombe FRANCE

Great trek to Gosainkund lake arranged at short notice by Cold Feet, followed by rafting and cultural visits. We turned up at the desk in Thamel and Gopi organised all the rest for us at very short notice. Great guiding and even evening entertainment with puzzles and tricks. John Edwards turnipedwards@virginmedia.com

Today and yesterday I had an amazing two day sight seeing tour, in Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, Patan and lots of other places, organized by ColdFeet! Unfortunately I could not finish my original trek to ME base camp because I got ill and had to get back. Waiting for my friends, the lovely people from ColdFeet helped me get back on my feet and made my trip - although slightly different as planned - one I won't ever forget en enjoyed very much! So... thanks! Ilona Zwolle, The Netherlands

What I like best about the team at ColdFeet is not only are they knowledgeable guides and leaders, but they have the ability to help you get under the skin and really experience this wonderful country. Not only did we did have a great time trekking the Annapurnas and rafting the Trisuli, but we left Nepal feeling we had made lifelong friends. Tom, South London Tom email.tom.griffin@gmail.com

I am now in my final year at university in England but a few summers back I was lucky enough to be part of a trek adventure in the Everest region organised by ColdFeet. Gopi, who was in charge, lead 50 Wimbledon Explorer Scouts for roughly ten days. The trip was incredibly well organised and we all felt very safe under his and his support staffs' guidance. Not only this but because of Gopi's extensive experience in the region we were really able to make the most of everything that was around us. I would enthusiastically recommend ColdFeet to anyone looking to trek in Nepal, not least because aswell as being professional and reliable all the staff at ColdFeet are friendly and do their upmost to make sure everyone really has fun. I look forward to any opportunity to be in Nepal with ColdFeet again. Oliver Young London

A really great trek, well led and organised by friendly, fun and frankly awesome guides. The most beautiful place I have ever been to. Thanks so much Gopi! Benedict Phillips Streatham Common, London, UK
