(Classic trek to Everest Base Camp followed by an expedition to climb Island Peak)
This itinerary combines the classic Everest Base Camp trek with climbing one of Nepal’s trekking peaks. After visiting Everest Base Camp and walking up Kalapatthar we head to Island Peak Base Camp in the next valley. Our trip includes three days to climb Island Peak which includes an extra time in case the weather does not co-operate or if you require extra time for acclimatization.
The Island Peak Expedition would be suitable for a climber visiting the Himalayas for the first time or keen hill walkers with previous mountaineering experience using crampons and ice axe. Island Peak is a more technical peak than some of the other trekking peaks in Nepal, it starts with an easy scramble along a rock ridge to a glacier and above there is a steep snow headwall leading to a classic summit ridge. The views from the top are superb including the south face of Lhotse and Ama Dablam.
