Pre-Trip Briefing

Island Peak Climbing is nestled in the heart of the Khumbu region and, at 6,189m/20,300ft, is considered a moderate challenge for climbers. Our professionally-developed climbing itinerary maximizes the sightseeing possibilities (which include Everest Base Camp and the hike to Kala Pathar) while factoring in ample time for acclimatization and a reasonable pace.
