Island Peak is a popular trekking peak in Nepal, located in the Khumbu region of the Himalayas. It stands at an elevation of 6,189 meters (20,305 feet) and is a popular choice for those who want to combine a trekking adventure with a climb to a Himalayan peak.

Climbing Island Peak requires technical skills, physical fitness, and experience in high-altitude mountaineering. It typically takes around 15-18 days to complete the climb, including acclimatization days and trekking to the base camp.

Trip begins after flying to Lukla village and follows the classical Everest Base Camp trekking route up to Gorak Shep. From there, the trail turns east towards the Khumbu Glacier, Kongma la and follows the Imja Valley to reach Island Peak Base Camp.

The climb to the summit involves traversing a glacier, climbing steep snow and ice slopes, and navigating a ridge to reach the summit. The climb is challenging, but the panoramic views of the surrounding peaks, including Lhotse, Nuptse, and Makalu, make it an unforgettable experience.

To climb Island Peak, Gokyo Treks agency will arrange for you a licensed guide and obtain the necessary permits from the Nepal Mountaineering Association. It is also important to have the proper equipment, including ice axes, crampons, and a climbing harness.

In general, Island Peak climbing in Nepal is a rewarding and challenging adventure that requires proper preparation, training, and experience. Likewise, climbing the island peak is possible at any time (except winter months) throughout the year.

How to get to the Island peak?

sherpa climbing guide in Nepal

The Island Peak is more easily accessible than you might think. If you’re wondering how to get to the Imja Peak summit, know that you will need to fly and then hike for some days.

If you’re planning to base yourself in the closest airports would be:- Ramechap Airport – Lukla Airport: 20 minutes flight.
Kathmandu airport – Lukla airport (direct flight): 35 minutes
Lukla airport – Island peak base camp trekking: 8 days

Purchase Adventure Travel Insurance.

I hope you don’t board without adventure travel insurance. If you do, you better think again. Adventure travel insurance is arguably the most important thing to have on hand (after your passports and visas) for a trip like climbing an island peak. Many climbers had to use their travel insurance multiple times on the road, even though they were healthy.

You never know when something might happen especially while you are climbing. Take comfort in knowing that whether your flight gets canceled or you wind up sick and in the hospital, you will be covered. Many climbers go with purchasing Travel Insurance for each and every one of your travelers.

Pack for your Island Peak Climbing Adventure

What you pack will depend on what time of the year you visit Island Peak. Remember that you’ll be in a towering mountain territory though so, no matter what, pack layers. While your clothing may vary, there are equipment checklist travel essentials that we recommend bringing on your trip. From packing essentials to climbing outdoor essentials, hiking essentials, camping essentials, and more… We’ve got you covered. Still, confused? ask us for special and additional climbing gear.

Notes for Island peak climbers

The climbing Island peak information stated above is just a sample guideline with a tentative trip plan. Island Peak is actually a training peak for those attempting the Everest Summit Expedition. That alone speaks mass about the degree of skill and effort needed for a successful climb. Island Peak summit climbing is a moderate climb that is possible for all climbers via a registered licensed trekking agency.

However, during the trip, is possible to modify your request to accommodate your specific requirements. Local politics, landslides, cancellation of local flights, weather, transport, or a multitude of other factors that are beyond our control can result in a change of itinerary during on hiking trip.

It is, however, very unlikely that the itinerary would be substantially altered. If alterations are necessary the leader will decide the best alternative option, taking into consideration the best interests of the whole group. When a change does occur, we do everything we can to minimize its effect, but we cannot be responsible for the results of changes or delays.

Island peak climbing Traveller’s Review

Great Experience Climbing 6K Mountain

Rated 5 out of 5
June 4, 2022

Our incredible adventure began with the Island Peak climbing and high pass trek combo package from Gokyo agency. Scaling a 6,000-meter mountain was an exhilarating experience, and though it was a challenging day-long ascent to reach the Island Peak summit, the rewards were beyond measure.

Throughout the journey, we were fascinated by the fascinating insights we gained about glaciers and the summits of other towering mountains. Ammar, the agency’s owner, played a crucial role in arranging almost every aspect of our climbing trip, and we couldn’t have asked for a smoother experience.

Without a doubt, we would choose Gokyo agency again in a heartbeat for their impeccable service and expertise. The memories of this remarkable journey will stay with us forever, and we can’t wait to embark on another adventure with them in the future.

My son suggested a hike in the Everest area and I jumped at the chance. We study about five companies and settled with Gokyo Treks & Expedition after checking out staff insurance, trip reviews, and licensing of the companies. Finally, we found this company as a genuine tour operator and we book everything with Ammar and his agency. Ammar met us on our arrival at the hotel and ensured our guided trip to Kathmandu for the second day went well.

Bimal was our guide, he met us at the airport and brought us to our hotel. He led us to the airport for the short flight to Lukla getting us through customs swiftly. We spent 16 days with him; he was remarkable the whole journey taking care of our needs and keeping us safe.

We had asked Ammar to put us in the best lodges and he did modify a better guesthouse with a cost difference. Overall we had an excellent adventure and I would recommend using Gokyo Treks travel agency for any trip to Nepal. – Henry and Vanessa Robbins, Zermatt, Switzerland

The Island Peak Climb was an awesome experience! Fur Galzen, our fantastic Sherpa guide, was not only highly knowledgeable but also incredibly helpful throughout the journey. He was always eager to capture great pictures for everyone, adding an extra special touch to our adventure.

Moreover, the agency provided excellent suggestions for hiking and climbing equipment, including where to buy or rent them. This was incredibly helpful, ensuring that we had the right gear for the muddy trails without ruining our shoes.

All in all, the honesty of the agency and the friendliness of our Sherpa guide made this trip a must-do experience. We are truly grateful for such a remarkable and memorable climb to Island Peak.

My oldest Son and I had such a wonderful climbing adventure trip with Nawang Chonga Sherpa. We had never such as High Mountain climbed before but Sherpa Guide Nawang made sure we had the necessary equipment and explained everything.

The whole time was just amazing except some steps near the Summit. It was difficult for me but hardly touch the summit with his perfect guidance. Totally happy and I would highly recommend Gokyo Treks & Expedition agency and Nawang if you are looking for an unforgettable and amazing climbing journey to Island peak.
