Island Peak

If you’re a beginner in the world of mountaineering then this is the mountain for your debut. Island peak also known as Imja Tse, is a mountain that lies in Sagarmatha National Park which provides an excellent opportunity to the novice or people with little experience in the field of mountaineering. It is believed that this peak appears as an island in a sea of ice when viewed afar from Dingboche hence earning the name Island peak. This is one of the least expensive expeditions compared to other expedition.

Our first destination with Swotah team is Lukla, which is also known as the gateway to the Everest region. We fly from Kathmandu to the Lukla from where we approach the mountain following the steep and strenuous trails of the Khumbu Valley, which has beautiful views and villages and lovely people. Besides toilsome expedition adventure, it will also be a cultural adventure to observe the Sherpa inhabitants and the Buddhist monasteries.

This Expedition goes through some of the nearby passes, such as Renjo La Pass (5,338m), Chola Pass (5,420m), and Kala Pattar (5,545m); which is surely going to be the highlight of this trek. This climb to Island peak is full of excitement, thrill, adventure and memories that will occupy your mind forever.

For the cold nights, thermal underwear, a warm fleece jacket and even a down jacket will help to keep you warm. Good shoes are of great importance. They must be comfortable.
