Island peak climbing With Himalayan Alpine Adventure Trek & Expedition. Island peak (6187 m) also known as Imja Tse , lies to the South of Mt. Everest in the Himalayas of Eastern Nepal . The peak was named Island peak in 1951 by Eric Tiptonâ€™s party since it appears as an Island in a sea of ice when viewed from Dingboche.The peak was later named in 1983 to Imja Tse but Island peak remains the popular choice. The peak is actually an extension of the ridge coming down off the South end of Mt. Lhotse Shar. Mt. Island peak was first climbed in 1956 by Swiss team as a training exercise in preparation for Mt. Everest and Mt. Lhotse. Island peak is one of the most popular trekking peak of Khumbu region given its difficulty and accessible especially when supported by a Nepalese Climbing Sherpa / Guide. To climb Island peak, one has the option of starting from a Base camp at 5,087 M. starting the climb between 2 to 3 am. Another popular option is to ascend to high camp at around 5,600 M. to reduce the amount of effort and time needed for summit day. However, adequate water supply and concern about sleeping at higher altitude may dictate starting from base camp. Base camp to High camp is basically a hike but just above high camp, some rocky steeps require moderate scrambling and up through a broad open gully. At the top of the gully glacier travel begins and proceeds up to a steep snow and ice slope. From here, fixed ropes may be set up by the Climbing Sherpa for the strenuous ascend of nearly 200 meters to the summit ridge. The climb to the summit is somewhat difficult due to steep climbing. On top, while Mt. Everest is a mere ten kilometers away to the North, the view will be blocked by the massive wall of Mt. Lhotse, towering 2,300M. Above the summit.
