Island Peak (6189m) is one of the major climbing peaks in the Everest area and the mountain got it's name in 1952 due to its striking location in the middle of the Chhukung valley. Island peak has an impressive, highly glaciated West Face, which rises from the Lhotse Glacier. The mountain extends from the South Ridge of Lhotse Sar and is separated only by a small column. From Base Camp, you will ascend a steep, grassy slope up small rocky steps to the higher camp. It is necessary to climb a steep, exposed snow and ice ramp to the summit ridge; fixed ropes will be used where necessary for a safe ascent to the top. This climb is more of a technical challenge than many other peak climbs, however our experienced guides will assist you as much as is necessary, depending on your climbing experience. The maximum altitude reached is 6189m and a high level of physical fitness and some climbing experience is necessary for this expedition.
