Do you want a sole experience of just climbing and reaching the summit of Island Peak? If that's the case, you've come to the correct place. Himalayan Trekkers offer you an affordable and budget-friendly 4 Days package of Island Peak Climbing beginning from Chhukung. Island Peak Climbing, also famously known as Imja Tse, looks like an actual island from Dingboche surrounded by the Ice Sea which lies in the Khumbu region of Nepal. 

Island Peak, with a height of 6189 meters, is one of the desirable and comparatively easy ‘trekking peaks’ in Nepal. The route to the summit is filled with thrill, adventure, and scenic vistas of majestic mountains such as Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Makalu, Ama Dablam, etc. along with exploration of the beautiful Everest region. 

The climbing experience of Island Peak can be a great first-time higher altitude climb experience for beginner and veteran trek enthusiasts. Climbing to the summit of Island Peak can be a good confidence boost for beginners as well as can be considered as a preparation for scaling higher altitudes such as Annapurna Circuit, Annapurna Sanctuary, Mt. Everest, Mt. Kanchenjunga, etc.  

This 4 Days package of Island Peak climbing has been designed for those independent trekkers who need a little assistance during the scaling experience of Island peak. Our team will welcome you to the village of Chhukung and guide you to the top of Island Peak from there.

This trip was full of unforgettable memories as promised by Himalayan trekkers. I am a solo traveler who climbed the height of 6189 m and enjoyed the whole journey. There was some harsh weather when I was trekking but the guides were very helpful. They handled the situation very well in a calm way which took away my anxiety. It was a great trip.

I had an amazing time on the climb to Island peak. Imja glacier is really beautiful. Our guide was very instructive and knew the area very well. He helped us a lot during the exploration. All the Himalayas felt very close to us from the trekking route as well as the summit. I would recommend you to go for the trip with Himalayan trekkers.

I was looking for a budget-friendly trip when I stumbled upon this package. This package was very independent and didn’t bound me to roam around the city areas. I had visited Nepal a few times now so this package was very helpful for just the climbing process. Would totally recommend you this package of Himalayan Trekkers. Thank you!!
