EBC Trek to Island Peak Climbing in Everest
Island peak is also known as Imja Tse. This is often the first step for most of the climbers before any summit attempt of giant peaks in the Himalaya. We take an exciting flight to Lukla to begin the Island peak expedition with an Everest base camp hike. Thus, we climb the less trodden trail to Everest base camp and Kalapathar for proper acclimatization before the summit push. In particular, we customize a special climbing training session at the base camp. Indeed, the training covers required climbing skills to scale the summit safely and successfully.

Furthermore above the rock ridge, there is a steep snow headwall leading to the summit. Of course, this is a physically challenging but a great day of achievement.
