Island Peak 6189m climbing is very popular trekking peak in Nepal, located at Khumbu (Everest) region at Chhukung valley in sagarmatha national park. Island Peak is seen as an island in a sea of ice. The summit is interesting and attractive with a highly glaciated west face rising from the Lhotse Glacier. The mountain itself is the extension of the South Ridge of Lhotse Shar separated by a small col. The ridge rising to the south from this point leads to the summit of Island Peak. The most difficult section is a mixed rock and ice wall at a slope around 45 degrees leading to the narrow summit ridge. The magnificent views from the summit, however, are certainly a fitting reward for your efforts. Before climbing Island Peak, we trek up the Dudh Kosi valley from Lukla, passing through Namche and Tengboche on our way to Kala Pattar and Everest Base Camp trekking trail. we follow the different valley from Dingboche village to Chhukung valley.
