This is the most popular trekking peak in Nepal. From Dingboche the mountain is seen as an island in a sea of ice. The summit is interesting and attractive with a highly glaciated west face rising from the Lhotse Glacier.The mountain itself is the extension of the South Ridge of Lhotse Shar seperated by a small col. The ridge rising to the south from this point leads to the summit of Island Peak. The extension of this ridge descending south-west is the part of the normal route of ascent and leads to the South Summit. Imja Tse not only provides an enjoyable climb but also provides some of the most spectacular scenery of Himalayas in the Khumbu region. Seen from the summit the giant mountains, Nuptse (7,879m), Lhotse (8,501m), Lhotse Middle Peak (8,410m) and Lhotse Shar (8,383m) make a semi circle in the north. The views of Makalu (8475m) in the east, Baruntse and Amadablam in the south add more charm for climbing Island Peak.

    Landing on the narrow, sloping runway in the heart of the mountains is a very spectacular way to arrive. From Lukla it is best to allow two days for the walk up to Namche Bazaar to assist with acclimatization.

  • Day 3(Phakding -Namche Bazaar 3440 m/11283 ft)

    A very pleasant walk by the river though pine forest leads to Monjo and the entrance to the Khumbu National Park. Dropping to the river a suspension bridge is crossed and a good path followed, passing numerous teahouses to cross the river once again on a plank bridge. The climb up to Namche has been made easier by the building of a new suspension bridge, opened in 1990. Which has allowed the route to avoid a difficult rocky section, which used to cause problems for yaks in the past. The first view of Everest is gained about an hour and a half below Namche. Camp is made outside one of the many lodges, or stay on one of the selected lodges.
