Island Peak Climbing From Chhukung

On top of the Chukung glacier, between Ama Dablam and Lhotse Mountains, Island Peak is one of the most sought-after trekking destinations due to its challenging geographical conditions.

Over 300 groups climb Island peak every year. An Island Peak Summit [6173m] can be climbed as part of this trek along with an exciting trek to Everest Base Camp. To reach the narrow summit ridge, you must climb a mixed rock and ice wall at a slope of around 45 degrees.

You will certainly be rewarded for your efforts, however, with stunning views from the summit. From Lukla you can trek up the Dudh Kosi valley, passing through Namche and Tengboche on the way to Kala Pattar and Everest Base Camp. Following rest and acclimatization, you then head up the beautiful Imja Khola valley towards Island Peak. In addition to your trekking adventure, you will also see beautiful Sherpa villages and ever-so-serene monasteries. After walking through Namche to Lukla, and from there on flying back to Kathmandu, you reflect on your trek earlier. You can take this trip between March and May, as well as between September and December.

An acclimatized and physically fit person can climb this peak. Trekking to Everest provides adventurous and romantic Island peak climbing on the way from Chukung to Chukung.
