Island Peak Climbing (19 Days)

Tour Duration:

An ascent of Island Peak is an unforgettable climb in some of the typical climbing-routes of Nepal. From the summit of Island Peak, you will see a white sea of clouds that is nearly indiscernible from a real sea. It’s just that instead of scattered islands in a real sea, you will witness isolated mountain peaks here and there. From the top, several eight-thousanders will be visible at close quarters. Cho Oyu, Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Pumori, and Thamsherku are prominently visible; and if it’s a clear day, you’ll see as far as Mount Makalu in the eastern side of the panorama.

The highlights of this trip include flying to the mountain town of Lukla, staying in the villages of the Sherpa, and seeing the culture of a people that is unlike any other in the world. Most of the trek will happen in Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The trail is lined with pristine villages, monasteries, and a plethora of flora & fauna in the lower regions. As you trek to higher altitudes, you will see the thinning vegetation and more of the white peaks. You will pass Namche Bazaar, Tengboche with its iconic monastery, the Sherpa Museum, and the Tenzing-Hillary Airport in Lukla. On the natural front, you will explore Everest region, see the pristine lakes of Gokyo, walk along the Khumbu Glacier, and witness mesmerizing sunset (or sunrise) views from the vantage point of Kalapatthar.

Seeing the scenic valleys of Everest is a unique opportunity. In this program from Multi Adventure, you will fly from Kathmandu to Lukla followed by a trek to Namche and beyond. You will visit Tengboche, Gokyo, and Kalapatthar and later, trek back to Lukla. This is your chance to trek the high valleys of the Sherpa in the heart of the mountains. You will need a very good level of stamina to complete this program.

In under three weeks, you will trek in the vicinity of the world’s highest peaks and also climb Island Peak, the highest trekking-peak of Nepal. At 6,189 meters, the trek to the summit is a moderate-to-strenuous activity that requires stamina and will. The best time to scale this peak is late winter to mid spring and from late summer to mid autumn. Multi Adventure recommends this trek for those who wish to climb a peak in Nepal – for gaining an experience of a classic trekking in Nepal.
