Island peak (6183m) also known as Imja Tse is one of the famous climbing peaks in Nepal, located at Everest region. The trekking to this particular peak does not only provide enjoyable moment but also some of the magnificent views of the Himalayas lying in the Khumbu region including the Mt. Everest (8848m), Mt. Nuptse (7,855m), Lhotse (8,516m), Lhotse middle peak (8,410m) and Lhotse Shar (8,383m) make a semi-circle in the north. The views of Makalu (8475m) in the east, Baruntse (7720m), and Mt. Amadablam (6856m) in the south add more charm while having the summit to the Peak.

The peak was first ascended in 1953 by the British team as part of their preparations for climbing Everest. Tenzing Norgay was one of the members of the first ascent team. This peak is actually part of the south ridge of Lhotse Shar and forms a semicircle of cliffs that rise to the north of Nuptse, Lhotse, Middle Peak and Lhotse Shar. Until you are along with the well-experienced peak climbing guides of our company—Alliance Adventure, you do not need to worry about anything, even if you are the first time in Nepal and want to have experience of climbing the peak. The trekking to the area usually begins from Lukla, where you will reach by direct flight and through Namchhe, Dinboche, Chukung, you will finally reach the base camp and after having successful ascend to the peak, you will return from the same route.
