Trip Overview

?Imja tse is more popularly known by the name of island pea, a name coined by Eric shipton who through tjis peak looked like’an island in a sea of ice’. later in 1983, the peak was named as Imja tea.

The paek was first ascended in 1953 by a british team as preparations for climbing Everest and tensing norgau was one of the members of that successful team. between 2006 and 2010 over 12000 people attempted the summit despite its popularity is still a tough climb and many people fail to reach the summit. This is often because of insufficient acclimatization, and sometimes because of deep snow strong winds, or simple setting off too late in the morning.

The peak is part of the south ridge of lhoste shar and the enormous summits of Nuptse, lhotseshar rise above the summit to the north. To the east lies the looming west face of Makalu and the unmiskeable form of ama dablam can be seen to the south-west.
