Island Peak Climbing 2019/20

Posted in France forum

Island Peak(6,165m/20,226ft), also known as ImjaTse in Nepali -offers a superb panorama of the Khumbu area from its summit. It faces Nuptse and the 8000m peaks Lhotse, Lhotse Middle and Lhotse Shar. On the summit, climbers can spot the Cho Polu (6.734mt.) rising above the frozen waves of the Lhotse Shar glacier. Furthermore, if the weather conditions permit, Mt.Makalu (8,475m) is visible to the East.

Island Peak is an excellent way to venture into altitudes above 6000m without great technical difficulty. Thanks to its location, the acclimatization to the altitude can be easily accomplished through a trek to Everest Base Camp or any other trek in the region. It is a great add-on activity for the adventure seeker.
