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.

We passed through the forest for about half an hour before crossing the river. Then, we climbed the mountain and noticed that when we climbed higher, the landscape became drier. We went through the traditional Sherpa town of Pangboche and then to the beautiful town of Pheriche, next to the river.

    We travel to Everest Base Camp along the vast Gorak Shep Lake. Continuing, we find the monument to the climbers of the Indian army. The road here can be deceptive, therefore, we must work hard to follow our leader, Sherpa. Walking is difficult due to the low altitude of the air. Before reaching the base camp of Everest, we crossed the rocky dunes, the hail and the streams. After arriving at Everest base camp, we saw that the climber's tent stood out in bright colors and in the monotony of the gray environment (especially in the spring). Nuptse, Khumbuste and Pumori are the mountains that we can see from the base camp. We returned to Gorak Shep for a wonderful night. We will spend the night in Gorak Shep.

    Gorak Shep to Kala Patthar (5545 m / 18,192 ft) and return to Lobuche (4940 m / 16,207 ft): 7-8 hours
    Between the dark and cold temperatures before dawn (-10 to -14 degrees Celsius), we are ready to leave early in the morning. In addition, it is always possible to have cold winds, which is very common. The wonderful mountain peaks, such as the Lingtren, Khumbutse and Changtse towers, are to the east, even though Mount Everest begins to appear. However, when we arrived at Kala Patthar, we could see 360 degrees of proximity and the huge views of the mountains. Everest.

    Lobuche to Kongma La (5,535 m / 18,159 feet) to Chhukung (4,730 m / 15,518 ft): 6-7 hours
    After breakfast, we walk to base camp Kongbu La Base (5,000 m / 16,404 ft) through the Khumbu glacier. Embarking the Kongma La Pass today is the most difficult part of our hiking trip. In Kongma La, we see the passage of Kane Mark wrapped in a prayer flag. Then we gradually descended to the valley of Imja Khola and then descended to Chhukung, a small summer settlement. After arriving in Chhukung, we will also review our team to prepare for our final ascent. We will spend the night in Chhukung. Note: If we do not want to make a Kongma La pass, we can take another route from Dingboche to Chhukung. Includes meals: breakfast, lunch, dinner.
    Day 12
    Chhukung to Island Peak Camp (5,200 m / 17,060 ft): 3-4 hours
    The hiking trail to Island Peak Base Camp is quite steep. First, we went south and then headed east to the main valley line. Then, we walk along the winding road below the south wing of the Lhotse glacier hail. Next, we continue walking along the pleasant path along the river. The route to Amphu Labtsa is in the southeast. Cross the intersection of the Imja and Lhotse glacier towards the wide valley on the side of the island's peak to the southwest. Overnight at Island Peak Base Camp. Includes meals: breakfast, lunch, dinner.
    Day 13
    Pre-workout –Training -climbing at Island Peak base camp
    We started pre-climbing training after breakfast today. Our guides will provide training on climbing techniques and the correct methods to use the climbing equipment, such as hail, trekking boots and crampons, safety belts, ascents, etc. The training will also include moving up and down using the ropes. Although it is not necessary to have previously received training from Island Peak Climbing, we strongly believe that some training experience will improve your confidence and climbing skills to increase your chances of expanding the peak and fully enjoy the experience. We can hike to the high camp for the rest of the day, return or rest, so we can climb the next day. Overnight at the base camp. Includes meals: breakfast, lunch, dinner.
    Day 14
    Island Peak Base Camp to the top of the island (6,189 m / 20,305 ft), return to Base Camp: 10-12 hours
    We got up from 12 am to 1 am this morning and had breakfast before we started climbing. The important thing is that we reached the top of the mountain before noon, because in the afternoon, the strong winds from the highlands can become obstacles to a successful summit. Before the blow from the steep slope, the small radial movement moved a few hundred meters. Originally a beach, the road quickly became grass and then turned into a rock. As we climb the slope, we will see the narrow slope and the path to the steep rocky path. We climb the rock cliff. This is not difficult, but before we appear on the right side of the ravine, there are several short steps to climb. Then follow the ridge, which will result in an exciting nose and exposed on top of the glacier. The guide will fix the rope when necessary. The steep slope of the snow takes us to the top of the mountain range. For safety reasons, fixed and human ropes will be used during the climbing process. We use fixed ropes after successful climbing. The length of the rope is usually 350 meters. However, the duration depends on the season and the time of the crack. There are two newly formed cracks, about 3 and 4 meters long. We will use a ladder to pass them. After enjoying the view of the mountain and taking pictures, we descended to the upper camp, and some of our crew members were waiting for us. We successfully celebrated island climbing. Includes meals: breakfast, lunch, dinner.
    Day 15
    Base camp on the island of Pangboche (3,985 m / 13,074 ft) 5-6 hours
    When we descend to a lower height, today's walk will be easier. Along the same route through the wide Khumbu Khola valley, we pass through the beautiful Sherpa villages of Orsho and Shomare. We can also choose different routes to visit Gompa in Upper Pangboche, which is believed to be the oldest place in Khumbu or frequent visits to Pangboche. Pangboche is a picturesque village with Everest to the north, Ama Dablam, Thamserku and Kangtaiga to the east, the Kongde mountains to the south and the wide and fertile valley of the Imja Tse. Includes meals: breakfast, lunch, dinner.
    Day 16
    Pangboche to Namche Bazaar (3,440 m / 11,286 ft): 4-5 hours
    From Pangboche we return to Imja Khola and then through the forest to Tengboche. If you are interested, we can also visit the nuns of the Tengboche Monastery. After lunch in Tengboche, we continue through the hillsides covered with rhododendrons and junipers. After crossing the bridge over the Dudh Koshi River, our trail follows the Dudh Koshi Gorge and passes quickly through the pine forest before reaching Sansa. While walking through the forest, we will pay attention to wildlife such as goats, snow leopards and colorful pheasants. After a chorten, we arrived at the Namche Bazaar military camp. We will spend the night in the Namche bazaar. Includes meals: breakfast, lunch, dinner.
    Day 17
    Namche Bazaar to Lukla (2,800 m / 9,186 ft): 6-7 hours
    This road has fallen sharply, so we must walk cautiously because our crumbling legs are constantly fighting on rocky terrain. After crossing the suspension bridge over the speedy Dudh Koshi and its tributaries, the path became flatter and more natural. After reaching Lukla, we stretch our aching legs and remember the experience of the last weeks. Overnight in Lukla. Includes meals: breakfast, lunch, dinner.
    Day 18
    Flight to Kathmandu (1,350 m / 4,428 ft)
    After a long mountaineering trip, we took a flight to Kathmandu early in the morning. After arriving in Kathmandu, we can take a break or make a souvenir purchase.
