Trip Overview

Island peak was the name given by Eric Shipton who thought it to be reminiscent of an island in a sea of ice. The trek leads to opulent Mountain View. We take a mountain flight to Lukla and trek up the dudh kosi valley. We get glimpse of Thamserku and Kusum Kanguru. It is a steep ascent to Namche Bazaar which is Capital of the Khumbu Sherpas. We rest and acclimatize and continue to trek to Tengboche, Dingboche, Gorakh Shep and Everest Base Camp. After enjoying the mountains view closely we continue to descent Chukung.After walking from Chukung we reach Island peak base camp to prepare and reach the summit. We climb island peak and return to Chukung. We trek to Tengboche and move towards Namche Bazaar via Khumjung. We trek to Lukla and in Lukla the very next day we take a morning flight to Kathmandu and depart for Tribhuvan International Airport.
