The Everest Region is one of the most celebrated regions by travel enthusiasts. Blessed with the raw magnificence of mother nature, this region holds some pristine locations filled with huge mountains and peaks. On this Everest three Peak climbing package – Himalayan Trekkers presents you with the opportunity of summiting 3 different peaks Lobuche, Phokalde and Island Peak.
To make this journey a memorable one, a program has been created where you will start with Pokalde peak climb, move on to the glory of the Imja Tse or Island Peak and finally climb over the challenging Lobuche Peak. These are certainly three of the most outstanding peaks in the region and promise to take you on a fairytale joyride.
While the Everest by itself is everything you can ask for, surrounding smaller peaks like Lobuche, Phokalde and Island Peak has it’s own glory too. Pokalde Peak being the smallest of the three at 5806 m makes it an easier climb and hence the first peak to be climbed.
The Island Peak stands tall at 6189 m, puts up a challenging climb for the travelers but showcases astounding views that look like an island surrounded by a huge sea of ice. As it stands right in the middle of the Chhukung Valley - the heart of the Everest Region - one can anticipate being blown away by the magnificence of these magnificent mountains.
Finally, comes the sheer elegance of Lobuche at 6119 m and the toughest climb among three of them.

Our journey starts along the famed Everest trail, passing through Namche, Tengboche, and Dingboche. This is the same trail one follows for the Everest Base Camp trek but our route deviates and breaks from Dingboche.
From Dingboche, the base camp of Pokalde Peak is the first stop, followed by the crossing of Kongma La Pass (5535m), to finally reach the Pokalde Peak High Camp. The route further is rough and leads you to Pokalde Peak, from where you can bask in the grand vista of Khumbu Region, Makalu Peak, Ama Dablam, and Pumori.
Our next target will be Chhukung Valley, the second peak on the list, the Island Peak. Though the trail puts up a challenge, view of Nuptse, Baruntse, Makalu and Ama Dablam from the Island Peak will fill your heart with completeness.
The last peak is Lobuche East Peak for which we come down to Dingboche, start ascending towards Everest Base Camp followed by Kala Patthar, and finally conquer the summit of Lobuche East. It is known for being one of the toughest “Trekker’s Peak” and once you conquer it, a sense of achievement and velour will fill your hearts.
Lastly, to enhance your ‘Nepal Experience’ and to explore more of the region we also offer an additional trekking option after the ascents via crossing the Cho La Pass and explore the impressive Gokyo Valley. It takes additionally 4 days.
