Island Peak

Island Peak
From the summit of Imja Tse stunning views of Lhotse and Makalu can be had.  Island Peak can be reached on a five day detour from the regular Everest Base Camp Trek. Its climbing grading is Alpine PD, it is the perfect ‘first Himalayan peak’. An ice wall has to be climbed to reach the top, so crampons, ice axes and ropes are necessary.
