Island Peak (Imja Tse, 6189m), located in Nepal’s eastern region within Sagarmatha National Park, captivates with its island-like form amidst an icy expanse. First named by the British Mount Everest expedition in 1953, it later became known as Imja Tse, yet Island Peak remains popular. Notably, Tenzing Norgay, Charles Evans, Alfred Gregory, Charles Wylie, and seven Sherpas ascended its southwest side in 1953.

The peak’s base camp rests at 5087m (Pareshaya Gyab), with the high camp at 5600m. Experienced climbers navigate glacier-covered trails, steep snow, and ice slopes. The summit rewards with a breathtaking view of Mount Lhotse. This 10-day tour commences in Chukhung and costs approximately $900-$1100, covering flights, insurance, permits, food, and accommodations.
