At 6189m, Island Peak is an accessible and technically relatively easy trekking peak. The amphitheatre of peaks that surround Island Peak are second to none, with the Nuptse/Lhotse Wall, the massive south face of Lhotse 8501m, Lhotse Shar 8383m, and Makalu 8463m in the distance to the east. To the south is the impressive wall of Baruntse 7220m leading to Ama Dablam 6856m. Taweche 6542m can be seen in the distance to the west. Previous climbing or mountaineering experience is required since we will be using ropes, crampons and axes – sometimes on exposed ground, and competence on such terrain is needed.
The Khumbu Explorer includes Lobuje East, Island Peak and Everest Base Camp – Lobuje East is a more technical summit than Island Peak even though it is lower.
