This trip includes the climb of Island Peak with two high passes in Everest. It explores four valleys, crosses two high passes, and climbs three peaks, including the Island peak. This passes and peaks trip is a strenuous and picturesque trek to climbing journey. It fulfills the dream of every amateur climber and serious trekker to experience the thrill of peak climbing beyond trekking. There is no need to have prior climbing experience to join it. Good physical fitness, stamina, and previous trekking experience would be great.

Rare 100% Success summit rate on Island peak climbing in spring 2017. Above 80% summit success in 2017, 2018, 2019, 2022, and 2023.

Exploration of Four Valleys, Two Passes, and Three Peaks.

We checked the gear before we took an exciting flight to Lukla. We hike along the Dudh Koshi River to Namchhe Bazaar. From here, we follow the less-trodden Bhote Koshi valley of Thame and Lungden. The Rinjo la pass on the way to Gokyo Valley offers wonderful views. The best vantage point on the journey is to click the pristine Gokyo lakes and Mt Everest with parades of peaks. We hiked to Gokyo Ri and crossed the Chola to EBC and Kalapathar. EBC is the ultimate destination for many trekkers around the globe.

We organize the climbing training at the base camp of Island Peak before the summit push. Our expert climbing Sherpa carries out training on various aspects of climbing techniques. Thus ensuring that you have the required skills to summit the peak safely. Your historical climb to the Island peak will reward you with one of the best panoramic summit views. You feel so close to Lhotse, Nuptse, Baruntse, Ama Dablam, and Makalu that you could almost touch them - a truly magical experience! After celebrating the summit's thriving experience, we descend to Namche via Pangboche and Thyangboche. We completed our venture in the Everest region's four valleys: Bhote Koshi, Gokyo, Khumbu, and Imjatse. This makes a remarkable huge circuit and a great adventure experience of a lifetime.
