Island Peak (6,189m/20,305ft), also known as Imja Tse, is a popular trekking-peak located in the Khumbu region of Nepal. It can be one of the most popular destinations for adventure enthusiasts. Starting from Lukla, the trek passes through numerous Sherpa villages, offering majestic views of high mountains of the region. Nuptse (7,879m/25,849ft), Lhotse (8,501m/27,890ft), Lhotse middle peak (8,410m/27,562ft), makes a semi circle in the north. The view of Makalu (8475m/27,805ft) in the east, Baruntse and Ama Dablam in the south adds more charm to the trek. Sagarmatha National Park (UNESCO World Heritage Site) can be a great Eco-destination in the region, which is famous for its exotic Himalayan wildlife of musk dear, mountain goats, colorful Pheasants, Red Panda and Snow Leopard. Pine and birch tree primarily makes the forest here, and the rhododendrons hanging onto the stone-cold cliffs add color to it. Populated mainly by Buddhist inhabitants, you can find many monasteries scattered in the region. Island peak climbing can be one of the most extraordinary trekking-climbing experiences in the world. Sample day on "Island Peak Climbing" All your treks are managed by a team of professionally trained Leader/guide responsible for all aspects of the running of the trek. Your day start with a cup of hot tea served in your room. A member of the trekking staff followed by a bowl of hot washing water, after which you will be required to pack your luggage and the porters loaded whilst we are having breakfast. After breakfast we set off on the trail, enjoying the pleasant cool of the morning. Your day's trek involves navigating numerous picturesque forests, hills, mountains and the local villages for the next three hours. Around mid-day we usually stop for a pleasant spot along the way for lunch. Your midday lunch break usually lasts around an hour and is a time to relax, pop the boots off and air those feet! Plenty of time is allowed for photograph in the route. After lunch you'll walk another three hours or so, before you stop for the night. You have enough time to change, freshen up, before exploring an area. Each evening is spent as per your interest for reading or chatting with the fellow trekkers and crew members or a pack of cards is an advantage; the crew love teaching various Nepali card games and learning new Western games. Our porters and Sherpa's also like to have singing and dancing competitions in which they love you to join in! Finally, it's off to bed for a well deserved night's rest before you start it all again.
