How to Get There
Our 18-day plan for Island Peak Climbing takes you on an interesting trip along beautiful routes. We start our trip with a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, which is full of beautiful views. During the flight, you can see how beautiful the area is. Now it's time to get up close and look at the beauty.
We'll follow the Everest Base Camp Trek routes until we reach Dingboche. On our way from Lukla to Tengboche, we'll stop in a lot of small towns and villages, like Phakding, Namche Bazaar, and others. Every place we go, we will enjoy the different cultures and ways of life and learn from them while making great memories. After getting used to the altitude in Namche Bazaar, we will go to the monastery, which is a monastery in Tengboche, to pray. As planned, we will soon be on our way to Dingboche.
We will spend our last night in a village in Dingboche. The next night, we will sleep in a camp at the Island Peak Base Camp. Here is where our trip to climb begins. We will take a day to rest and get ready for the climb. The next day, with the help of our professional guides, we will climb to the top of Island Peak, which is 6189 meters above sea level
Now that we have reached our goal, we will head back down to Lukla. From Island Peak Base Camp, our first stop is back to Dingboche. We will go back to Namche from Dingboche through the beautiful village of Tengboche. We then follow the trail back to Lukla. Our longest and last trek is from Namche to Lukla. From Lukla, we'll take a flight back to Kathmandu, where you'll catch a flight back to your home country. This will be the end of our Island Peak climbing trip.
How hard will the Expedition be?
Island Peak is a relatively easy peak to climb compared to the other peaks in the Everest region. But at some point, it's a technical climb, which makes it hard. So, how hard is it to get to the top of Island peak?
Well, it's not an easy climb that all new climbers should try. It can be done by beginners who are more experienced and know more about the gear and equipment. So, it's easy enough for beginners to do, but only advanced climbers can do it because it's tricky. In addition to the technical part, the expedition faces some other problems. Here are some of the most difficult parts of climbing Island Peak:
At the top of the Island Peak, which is an exciting height of 6189 meters, there is a good chance you will get altitude sickness. Since altitude sickness happens when the body can't adjust to changes in altitude, you should pay more attention to altitude gain.
In the 18-day plan, there are two days to get used to the altitude. This lowers the chance of getting altitude sickness. But because you gain altitude and climb in a single day, there is still a chance that the altitude change will make you sick.
How the weather condition
Aside from how the change in altitude affects your body, the weather may also be a problem during your climb. When you get higher up, the weather changes quickly and is hard to predict. Because of the strong winds, the best time to climb the peak is before noon. Our trip is also hard because of these strong winds.
How Technical Climb?
You might think it's an easy hike because it's not as hard to climb as some of the other peaks in the area. To be honest, it's not good for people who are just starting out. This climbing trip is for experienced beginners who know a little bit about gear because the climb has some tricky parts. Professional guides will help you through the technical parts, but it can still be hard for people who are just starting out.
As we follow the Everest Base Camp Trek routes, you'll know that the average amount of time we spend walking each day is 6-7 hours. Some days, you'll have to walk for 8-9 hours straight. Most of the trekking routes are nice roads, but when we leave the Everest Base Camp Trekking routes, the trail goes off the road and is rough and goes uphill steeply. The Everest Base Camp Trek with Island Climbing Trek is the same.
When would be the best time to climb the island peak?
It's important to know the best time to go on a trip so that you can plan ahead and have a better time. It would be stupid to try to climb a peak in the Himalayas in the middle of a very cold winter. So, the best way to get the most out of the trip is to learn when the best time is.
As for the best time to climb Island Peak, you should pick a time when you won't have to deal with any physical problems. For example, since the monsoon and summer seasons happen at the same time in Nepal, it would not be wise to climb during the summer because the roads would be muddy and slippery.
Also, if you were in the Everest region and went mountain climbing in the middle of winter, you would have a high chance of getting frostbite or freezing. So, it would be best not to climb in the middle of a very cold winter.
Best time for climbing the island peak
The best times to climb Island Peak are in the fall and spring. From September to November and from March to May, the weather is mostly clear and there isn't much rain, so hiking and climbing are good options. Also, when the weather is clear, you can see the most. The weather in the area is also good for mountain climbing and hiking at this time of year. The wind is not as cold and the sun is not too strong. So, enjoy your next climb when the weather is good and you can make the best memories.
Food and places to stay on the trip
The 18-day Island Peak Climbing Itinerary shows where our trip will take us. This climbing trip takes you to several remote places, each of which has its own culture and way of life. So, you must be wondering where you will stay and what you will eat.
Since the area is far from the city and in the middle of nowhere, you won't be able to find high-quality hotel rooms there. But that doesn't mean you have to settle for small, dirty rooms. You will stay in tea houses in beautiful villages that have rooms for two people to share. There will be a clean bathroom right next to the room. You and another trekker will share the room. You can choose a single room, but you have to book it ahead of time, and the chances that it will be free are very low.
During your climb, you and the rest of your group will stay in tents at the Island Peak Base Camp. After you reach the top of Island Peak, you will stay there for two days and then go back to the village. As for food, there is a lot of variety in Kathmandu and in some places along the trek. As your altitude goes up, you will have less food to choose from. In the higher parts of the country, you will only be able to eat local food and Dal Bhat.
Our sherpa team will make sure you have the best food for your safe journey ahead no matter where you are. Before the Island Peak Climbing Package starts, Soul Himalaya Treks will get you ready for a peak climbing expedition. Soul Himalaya treks' climbing sherpa mountain guides will teach you how to handle and get past different challenges while technical climbing and moving to more difficult parts on the way to the top. Island Peak Tour will give you a better way to see the world's beautiful landscapes. We will follow the same trek route back down to Lukla.
