Useful Info

Island Peak Climbing from Chhukung

Island Peak is the most popular trekking peak. It takes lots of days to even reach the base camp. However, you can adopt the Everest Base Camp Itinerary as well. Moreover, the summit push starts from High Camp. There are many crevasses, few technical sections, and steep inclined snowy sections too. You will have to use basic climbing equipment and gear to reach the summit. It is arduous as it is a snow-capped mountain in Nepal.

The ridge line walking makes it harder to climb.

Trail Length

The distance between the base camp and Lukla is around 33.6 kilometers. It is the highest distance that you cover during the trek. However, it increases if you add Everest Base Camp to your trekking itinerary. There are many downhill, uphill, rugged trails and glacier walking. For any normal person, trekking that distance is not an easy activity. Long-distance trekking can become tiring but end result is rewarding.

Altitude Sickness

Altitude sickness is the biggest factor on this trip. The maximum height on this trip is 6160 m from sea level. Therefore, AMS can happen. The trip starts from Kathmandu which is at 1300 m. The change in altitude is the major cause of altitude sickness. Proper acclimatization is needed. Therefore, our itinerary focuses more on the client’s safety.

Weather & Climatic Conditions

Nepal’s mountain region has unpredictable weather and climatic conditions. Day temperature is normal but night hours are pretty freezing. Weather can change drastically in just an hour. Expect unexpected changes in climate and weather. However, the team will analyze the situation and only decide whether to push or not.

Climbing Preparation

The best way to prepare for climbing is by doing cardiovascular workouts. These kinds of cardio exercises help to increase lung capacity. In order to climb the mountain, you need strong and healthy lungs.

Do some strength-building training like planks, push-ups, and squats. Cycling is also the best option to prepare your body for climbing. Always start these activities 4-5 months before traveling to Nepal for climbing.

Gain some basic mountaineering knowledge. Our team will help you get familiarized with the climbing gears and climbing ideas. Also, follow healthy dietary habits.

Poon hill trek May 2023 From the very beginning of our communication Mr. Simbir was helpful and responsive. He managed to resolve some unexpected issues after our arrival in Nepal and organized a great private trip for us. The choice of lodges always allowed us to have the best views. Our guide Sobit Tamang and porter Jovan Gurung were extremely friendly. Although both guys are still young, they are very strong, attentive and client-oriented. We do recommend Himalaya View Treks for those who wish to travel in the mountains of Nepal.
EBC till Tengboche My guide was Prayash T. Rai. He helped me a lot when I struggled with the hikes or the bags and taught me a lot of things about the Landscape and the local culture. Definitely an experience I will never forget!

Best Porter/Guide EVER! My Guide/Porter was the best!This company provided me with a memorable and successful trekking experience to Annapurna Base Camp all thanks to my Guide/Porter Rahul Tamang. He was funny and communicative and tried to get the best tea lodges for me. He was very understanding and walked at my pace which is slow. He never pushed me and was always patient which I believe was key to my successful accent. Friendships were made on the trip. Every leg of the trek was a different beauty. I highly recommend the Rahul and the company which provided him.
Trekking in Himalayas I had an excellent guide, named Prayash T. Rai. A young man who was very competent. We covered EBC, Chola Pass Goyko lakes.

Best Manaslu Trek Ever! Great company! Responsive, best price, and I finally found a guide who can keep up with me! Simbir was excellent and understanding with the arranging even though my airline lost my bag. I said I wanted to go fast and he set me up with super-powered guide Sobit and we had the most outstanding trek around Manaslu. I usually don’t prefer going with a guide but it’s mandatory nowadays, so if you are like me and want to travel on your own in Nepal, this is the best way to do it. Reach out to Simbir and ask for Sobit!

Everest Base Camp from Shivalaya Big thanks to Simbir for organising our big walk at short notice. eCommunication excellent before we arrived in Nepal. Despite long delays at the airport he and the team were there to meet us and brief at hotel. The plan was long walk in to EBC, then Kala Pattar and Island Peak. Simbir arranged for us to be guided by DB, a very experienced and competent registered guide and for portering by Man. Both excellent. The walk, scenery and company on the way were fantastic.I contracted a respiratory infection and subsequently altitude sickness. Simbir and DB spotted the difficulties quickly and made complex arrangements for evacuation and hospitalisation. Thank you. They also ensured my companion was accommodated comfortably in Kathmandu. I would highly recommend this company for their competence and experience. When we return to see more of Nepal, we'll be in touch. Thanks Simbir, DB and Man.
Wonderful hike Wonderful hike with my guide Rahul. Thankful for his company.All permits are arrange by Mr Simbir. Highly recommend. Thanks.

Himalaya View Treks exceeded my expectations. My guide, Ram Gurung did a great job leading us EBC. The 2 week EBC trek was a success. The itinerary was smooth with lodging, food, and guiding. I recommend Mr. Simbir & Himalayan View Treks for your time in Nepal.

Mr. Simbir from Himalaya View provided us (me 63 and my wife 61) a porter cum guide from Lukla on the EBC trek in March and April 2022. We successfully completed the trek, everything went without the slightest problems, the negotiations were simple and the agency absolutely reliable . Our porter cum guide Yuba Raj carried our 15 kg backpack, reliably guided us through the entire two-week trek and solved all our worries with accommodation, meals and itinerary. We became very fond of Yuba.Highly recommended.

It was awesome experience with Himalaya view Treks, when we travelled to Nepal for Trekking to EBC and next year Annapurna Circuit. Porter cum guide provided both time was talented as well as good nature. Mr. Singbir is such a good and jolly guide who helped us at kathmandu apart from trekking also. We will always use his Himalaya View Treks services for any future treks in Nepal.

Everything was great with Himalaya View Treks (Simbir ji) and we would gladly choose his company again. We had hired Dewan ji as our Porter-cum-guide from Lukla for our EBC trek and we had an excellent 12 days with him and enjoyed our trek thoroughly. He was very competent and caring and we also made him practice his Hindi a lot ;) Made friends with both of them and this trek was surely a memorable experience. We gladly recommend them to anyone without a doubt :) Thank you Simbir ji and Dewan ji for everything :)

Great company who offers the possibility of hiring a porter guide, who is a figure between a porter and a guide, a very good option if you are traveling on a budget! Our guide (Iman) was excellent, very professional, flexible with the route and managed everyday to get accommodation even if we were in high season. Communication before the trek was also good via whats app, they did all permits for us and we picked them up at our arrival. We would highly recommend this company!
