Description

Island Peak Climbing is one of the main climbing peaks in the Everest Region of Nepal with an impressive and highly glaciated West Face that rises from the Lhotse Glacier. It is situated in Sagarmatha National Park of the Himalayas of eastern Nepal.

The peak was named Island Peak in 1951 by Eric Shipton’s party since it appears as an island in a sea of ice when viewed from Dingboche. It is designed for energetic and physically fit trekkers with little or no experience in mountain expedition.
