Island Peak Climbing

Island Peak ClimbingIsland Peak is also known as a trekking peak in Everest region. The route to the Island Peak summit includes a steep slope and a narrow ridge. Crampons, Ice-axe and ropes and an experience climbing guide is necessary who knows the best part of the ridge to climb. Island Peak was named by the team of Eric Shipton and in 1983 it was renamed Imja Tse, but even the locals still calling it Island Peak. The mountain was first climbed in 1953 by a team in preparation for the ascent of Everest. Today it is still used by many to prepare for Everest or other high peaks in the region. From Dingboche the mountain doesn't look too impressive; it looks very small next to one of the largest mountain with South Face of Lhotse. However, on close inspection it reveals itself to be an interesting and attractive summit with a highly glaciated West Face rising from the Lhotse Glacier. It has a classically beautiful ridge leading to the summit and offers stunning views of beautiful Ama Dablam and Makalu.. The continuation of this ridge, descending south-west, provides part of the normal route of ascent and leads in turn to the South Summit, seen capping the rocky west facet of the mountain when viewed from near Chhukhung.
