Island peak climbing

Island peak climbing

For first timers who are adequately fit & have done some treks at fairly good altitudes -& want to move onto something that's bigger that provides a sense of achievement for self motivation in the great Himalayas of Nepal…then Island Peak at (6187m), also locally known as Imja Tse, is your once-stop green light for a foray into the mountain wilderness as you seek to cut across 3 high passes before summiting at Island Peak…& then you're psychologically prepared for the bigger massifs where only eagles dare. Imja Tse lies to the south of Mount Everest and is one trek peak that beckons the seasoned & novice trekker year after year.
