ISLAND PEAK OR IMJA TSE

It was the famous climber Eric Shipton who named the mountain "Island Peak". In 1953 Tenzing, Evans and Wylie, members of the Everest Expedition also climbed the Peak as a side excursion to reach peak fitness. It is surrounded by the giant peaks Nuptse and Lhotse and lies in the Khumbu region. The peak is connected to Lhotse Shar.

The first part of the trek follows the same path as the normal Everest Base Camp trek, but after Tsuro Og the route diverges. The trail from here goes via Dingboche and reaches Chhakhung. The normal practice is to set up Base camp at Pareshaya. But here, one needs to be cautious since this area is avalanche prone when there is heavy snowfall during mid-winter. Going further up from Chhukhung you pass near the southern bank of the Lhotse glacier and finally reach the Imja glacier.

The last part of the trek is through a lake- bed wedged between the Lhotse and Imja glaciers. The view from the summit of Island Peak is enchanting with views of such peaks as Baruntse, the Amphu Peaks and Ama Dablam, considered one of the most beautiful mountains. You can make it to the summit and back the same day starting from Pareshaya Base Camp.

All it requires is fitness, proper acclimatization and favourable weather conditions.
