Island Peak, also known as Imja Tse, is one of the most popular hiking trails in Nepal and is suitable for climbing in the Himalayas. The combination of hiking in the base camp of Mount Everest and climbing on the islands is probably the best adventure in Nepal. For many climbers who climb, it marks the beginning of the Himalayas and prepares for further exploration of the Himalayas in Nepal. For some climbers, the peak represents the purpose of adaptation to the environment, and then to the larger mountaineering. Trekking to Kaalapatthar or Everest base camp is the best way to Acclimatization before adapting to the upper part of the island. The normal route to climb Island Peak is South East Flank and South-West Ridge. The base camp is generally in Pareshaya Gyab (5,087 m), between the side hail of Imja Tse and the Imja glacier.
