Island Peak, Khumbu Region

Island PeakLocated between the Ama Dablam and Lhotse Mountains chains and on the top of Chhukung Glacier, the most hunted after trekking destination is the Island Peak because it offers an excellent opportunity to achieve a Himalayan Summit of 6173m even without any ideal climbing skills. This wonderful Island Peak takes you into the heart of the mountain, Khumbu region, which offers an unforgettable and magnificent close-up views of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Makalu and many more. Island peak was renamed "Imje Tse" in the early '80s, though its original name is still more popular.

 

The mountain was named "Island Peak" in 1952 AD 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 our efforts.
