Tour Details

On your 16-day Island Peak Expedition, you will not only reach the summit of the magnificent Island Peak but also experience trekking in the most coveted Everest region. Island Peak also called Imja Tse by the Nepalese is a popular choice among novice climbers who wish to begin their mountaineering journey by summiting Island Peak and then move on to other peaks. The mountain was named “Island Peak” in 1952 A.D due to its striking location in the middle of the Chhukung valley, like an island on a sea of ice. Island Peak has an impressive, highly glaciated west face that rises from the Lhotse Glacier which is a bit tough to do; however, the magnificent views from the summit are certainly a fitting reward for your efforts.

Highlights of Island Peak Expedition are:

  • Jawdropping views of many 7000m+ peaks
  • Explore culture, tradition, and lifestyle of Sherpas
  • Visit biggest monastery in the Everest region- Tengboche Monastery 
  • Encounter different endangered flora and faunas
  • Explore the Khumbu Icefalls and Glaciers

You will take a flight from TIA to Tenzing-Hillary Airport at Lukla in Solukhumbu. The flight takes you over the Himalayas giving you a breathtaking panoramic view of the higher mountains, including the famous Mt. Everest, standing there with the snow-covered peak in all its glory. On arrival at the airport, Sherpa crew will unload our trekking equipment and our guide will brief you and introduce our porters before our trek begins towards Phakding.

Day 3Phakding to Namche bazaar (3440m)

After walking for almost over an hour, you come across the glistening Mt.Thamserku (6,608 m) on your right and also experience the serenity of pine, fir and juniper forests throughout your journey. If the weather is clear, you may even catch a glimpse of Mt. Everest peering over the Lhotse-Nuptse ridge. Continue walking until you reach the entrance to Sagarmatha National Park, Namche Bazaar, the gateway to Mt. Everest and the main trading center of this region. On that day you cross five suspension bridges, the last one also known as the Hillary Bridge being the highest. It is an uphill walk from Hillary Bridge to Namche Bazaar.

Day 4Rest day at Namche bazaar

Namche Bazaar is also known as the Sherpa Capital. You can use your time to acclimatize, relax and explore the surrounding places. Most of the trekkers prefer to get up before sunrise to view the magnificent views of Mount Everest, Thamserku, Amadablam and other glorious peaks from the Sagarmatha National Park. One can get a chance to observe the shadow of the mountains being projected onto the clouds above and truly appreciate their magnitude. As an energy supplier, one should try salt-butter tea and Champa – a kind of barley often consume by the Sherpas in the region.

Accommodation: Overnight in the available local lodge

Words are hard to describe the experience of hiking in the Himalayas and having had the privilege the stand on one of it peaks. Wonderful, for sure! Also, only positive and kind feedback towards the company who was behind this experience.: professional, trustworthy and reliable and excellent guide (Shiva) and porter service. Thanks for your much valued contribution to a magnificent journey

Couple Traveller

Asian Heritage Treks and Expedition had planned a great acclimatization hike to bring us to Island Peak basecamp in the best shape. Thanks to this we kept our oxygen levels real high. Unfortunately the weather was against us and high winds an too much snow made summiting too dangerous, and we followed the advice of the expert sherpas provided by the company. For sure I will go and try again in 2020 and without doubt again with Asian Heritage and with their excellent guide Shiva.
