Officially regulated day to day itinerary of 15 days Island Peak Climbing adventure package trip with Adventure Mountain Nepal Trekking and Climbing Pvt. Ltd begins after spending a day in capital city Kathmandu with a day guided sightseeing tour around world heritage sites of UNESCO. Then we make a short picturesque flight to Tenzing–Hillary Airport at Lukla which is an entrance of Khumbu & Everest. From Lukla, we start our walking journey through gentle ascends followed by few descends, crossing the bank of Dudh Koshi River, cross many mani walls, stone carvings and dense forests of Pine all the way to Phakding and Namche Bazaar. The Namche Bazaar is also known as a kingdom of Sherpas. Namche Bazaar is a perfect place to spend another night by making a day hike to Syangboche view point at 3,780m/12,398ft as an acclimatization day.

After Namche Bazaar, we continue the trek continuously following the main trail of Everest Base Camp until we reach at Dingboche. After there, the trail goes straight forward towards Island Peak Base Camp at 5,087 meters via beautiful Chhukung valley. From Base camp, we need to begin the steep ascend, start a day in around 2-3 AM early in the morning. There is not challenging and difficult section until around 5,600 meters, after there we need to follow rocky steeps and canyon. When we reach at the top of the gorge, we begin to walk across steep snow and ice slope where our experience guide will set up the fixed ropes for around 100 meters until the summit. The climb is difficult due to steep ascends, also can set up high camp at 5,600 meters to reduce long day efforts to summit the Island Peak in a single day. After having a short and special time at the summit ridge of Island Peak, we safely retrace our steeps to Base camp and return Lukla via the same trail by getting a wonderful memory of Island Peak Climbing with experienced climbing team of AMN.
