Island Peak (in Nepali “Ima Tse Peak”) is a summit of the Everest massif.

It is located near the Lhotse Shar. Island Peak was first mounted in 1953 by a British team of climbers; it was a preparatory tour for an expedition to the summit of the Mount Everest. Even today, it still serves as a preliminary stage to the Everest ascent.

With breathtaking views from the summit, this effort is more than rewarded: You have a clear view of the Nuptse (7,879 m), the Lhotse (8,501 m), the Lhotse Milddle Peak (8,410 m) and the Lhotse Shar (8,383 m) in the North, the Makalu (8,475 m) and the Baruntse (7,129 m) in the East and the Peak of Amadablam (6,812 m) in the South (famous for expeditions).

Island Peak climbing with Everest Three Passes Trek begins with the very famous flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, adventure right from the start!
