Island Peak Climbing

island peak
Island Peak (6168 mtrs) is the most popular trekking peak among the climbers. It was first attempted by Eric Shipton and Tenjing Norgay in 1952. The peak was named ‘Island Peak’ because the peak appears to be in the middle of the ocean of ice. It was again Imja Tse in the 80s. Still, the name Island Peak is more popular both among the climbers and the trekking professional. The Island peak lies on the southern ridge of Mt. Lhotse in Khumbu region of Himalaya.
 
A warm up climbing for the climbers who wish to climb higher mountains. Island peak climbing is very much suitable for beginner climbers as well as a refreshing course for regular climbers. All Nepal Hiking carefully designs all its trekking and climbing trip in consultation with experienced mountain climbers. The experts make it sure that the trip itinerary is designed keeping in mind well acclimatization, pace, intervals for the climbers. 
 
Island Peak climbing and Everest base camp trek starts with a 40 min flight to Lukla.  The flight itself is a life time experience with magnificent Himalayan view. You will also explore the Khumjung Village, and we’ll spend one day at Namchhe Bazar for acclimatization. 
 
A day’s hike to world famous Syangboche airstrip and to Everest view Hotel on the ridge of Khumjung village then descend to Khumjung village to encounter with old monasteries and museum.  Khumjung village is the homeland of Sherpa people. Enjoy listening to the tales of the Sherpa legendry climbers. Similarly, the education and health projects started by Sir Edmund Hillary, the first summiteer of Mt Everest, are also worth visiting. 
 
Before attempting the Island peak, we will take you to Everest Base Camp via holy place of Tengboche. Visit one of the world famous Buddhist monasteries – the Tengbochhe Monastery. The ascent of Kalapathhar would provide another acclimatization opportunity as well as a chance to see the magnificent views of Everest and surrounding tall mountains.

Note: Kathmandu-Lukla-Kathmandu flight might get delayed by a few hours or may even be canceled for one, two, or more days due to unfavorable weather conditions. Such conditions may happen even in the best seasons. Hence, in such cases, you must be prepared for long waits either at Kathmandu or Lukla airports, as this can happen either at the start or end of the trek or even both! We will do our best to avoid such delays, and arrange the next flight for you. We also organize Helicopter rescue in such conditions, if it is available and upon request by our clients. The helicopter charges around USD 3500 and it can lift 4-5 persons per flight. Still, we suggest you to be prepared for possible delays/cancellations, and if possible to come with some extra buffer days (1-2 days) at the end of the trip to accommodate such delays. If everything runs smoothly and you still have a few days of your buffer days left then you may even engage yourself in optional activities which can be arranged by Himalayan Glacier upon request. The optional activities may include visiting places/landmarks of your choice, adventure sports, shopping, etc.

In case the flight delay/cancellation happens at the start of trip and it goes so long that it disturbs your onward travel schedule, you are free to choose an alternative trip such as a trek in the Annapurna, Langtang, or any other region. If you are not interested in the alternative trip and would rather wait for your original preferred trip, you are welcome to wait in Kathmandu for as many days as it takes to get a flight to Lukla. However, please note that there will be no refund, if you lose time waiting at the airport and do not take an alternative tour or you only do a short trek later due to time limitation. If the cancellation happens before the trip, we will provide you accommodation and lunch in a guesthouse in Kathmandu. In case of the flight delay/cancellation after finishing of the trek, you will be responsible for all your expenses. Please also note that you will not be entitled to any refund for the services (such as hotel, transport, flight, etc.) included in the package that you would not use later.

Some have western food such as pizza, pasta and French fries. Soft drinks, snacks and beer are available in most of the Tea Houses and trail side restaurants
 
Safe Drinking Water in Trekking
We suggest you to drink boiled filter water. For boiled water ask to lodge people which might cost little during whole period of trekking or bring chlorine tablets to purify the normal water available in the guest houses along the way. Several guesthouses have Euro-guard filters as well. Although mineral water is available in most places which is better choice and there is no provision to dispose of the plastic bottles, but we encourage the guests to do what they can protect the environment.

We offer you an experienced trekking guide. He is in charge of your overall trekking. This is the person you should go to with all problems, concerns and questions. He is well trained in all aspects of trekking, high altitude medicine, first aid and emergency procedure. He is selected in terms of his professionalism. Remember that trekking guides are local citizens and their English may be basic and limited to trek related topics. About porters, they carry your luggage. They are also local citizens. Normally one porter carries 20 to 25 kg of stuff. Normally we provide one porter for two trekkers.
 
Equipments
We suggest you to bring following equipment when you come to Nepal for trekking. The list can be adjusted according to your needs, name of trekking and time of your trekking.

Weather & climate
Weather and climate varies as per season in Nepal.
Autumn (mid-September to end-November)
Autumn is the most popular time to trek. During this time, the weather is clear with mild to warm days and cold nights. However, in the higher altitude, the nights drop into freezing temperature. In this season, the mountains views are clear.
 
Winter (end-November through March)
It is also possible to trek during winter, from December until the end of February. Daytime temperatures will be cooler; however, the nights will often be very cold. The days are generally clear but occasional winter storms can bring snow as low as 2500m. Early October through late November is also the busiest period for trekking. But in mid-winter (January through March), trekking is more challenging in the high altitudes with semi-regular snowfall followed by more winter storms, which break the long fine periods. The mid-December to mid-February is the coldest time.
 
Spring and early summer (mid-March through May)
During this period the mornings are usually clear but afternoon cloud build-up brings occasional showers. The days are mix up with warm and rain, which displays wildflowers like rhododendrons. The whole country is lush and an abundant green at this season. This period instigate the second most popular and pleasant trekking season as this is rice-planting time. Late-march into April is especially beautiful. It is also a good time for climbing as the high passes are usually snow free and the mountain views are still clear in April. Up to May, the weather becomes hazy and disturbed with the clouds.
 
The monsoon (June to mid-September)
From June to early September, is the monsoon season. Generally the morning is cloudy and cloud wisps form on random ridges and peaks. Trekking at this time of year is generally difficult and uncomfortable as the weather is hot and it rains almost every day. The trails become muddy and are often leech-infested and the mountains are usually obscured by cloud. During April and May, there is an expectation of thunderstorm, hail shower and strong winds among the fine periods. There are, however, possibilities for summer trekking in the trans-Himalayan regions of mustang, Dolpo and Tibet. These regions lie in a rain-shadow and therefore receive significantly less precipitation than the more southerly areas.
 
Washing and Toilet facilities for Tea house Trekking
Most lodges provide hot showers, though sometimes a hot shower means a bucket of hot water only but availability of hot water can ask to your trekking guide. For ecological reasons please try to limit your use of hot water unless if you are provide solar - heated water.  Please note that at higher altitude and in colder seasons there is rare chance to have enough hot water for all the trekkers. If the water is frozen then ask your guide to get warm bowl of water.
Toilets are usually Asian squat style and vary in how clean they are. Normally toilets are outside the lodge but now some lodges have attached or indoor toilets. The rubbish bin in the toilet is kept for your used toilet paper.
 
Re-charging Batteries of Electronic Items on the Trek
You can recharge your batteries with electricity or solar power sources. In Nepal 220 – 240 volt 50 MHZ (50 Cycles per Second) power is supplied. Just need to have a plug adaptor in case of socket fitting, which you can buy in Kathmandu before the trip since the plugs in Nepal might be different. You might have to pay small amount fee/hour for recharging facilities.

High Altitude Sickness
Altitude sickness often known as acute mountain sickness (A.M.S.) in general may occur when people ascend too quickly normally in altitudes of over 3000 m. Most people will feel some effect of altitude, shortness of breath and possibly a light headed, which is fairly common. Acute mountain sickness is very different and normally involves a severe headache, sickness and loss of awareness. In almost every potential case there are enough warning signs to take appropriate action. When symptoms of altitude sickness develop you, please tell your trekking guide. He will advise you do deal with your problem. Generally over exertion and dehydration contribute to altitude sickness. So drink at least 3-4 liters of water every day besides tea and coffee which act as diuretics.
