A Mountain with a Rich History

Originally named Island Peak in 1953 by members of the British Mount Everest expedition, this mountain captivated many with its unique appearance, resembling an island amidst a sea of ice when viewed from Dingboche. Although officially renamed Imja Tse in 1983, the original name continues to resonate with climbers worldwide.

Upon arrival, a brief tea break allows you to meet your trekking staff and prepare for the trek to Phakding.

In Chhukung, your climbing guide will provide essential training on climbing techniques and equipment use, preparing you for the ascent.

The Climbing Experience

Ascending Island Peak is an exhilarating experience, culminating in a summit that rewards climbers with spectacular views of both lower and higher peaks in the Everest Region. This climb is not just a physical challenge but a journey through some of the most stunning landscapes on Earth.

Everest. This culturally rich village offers a tranquil environment to reflect on your accomplishment.

Itinerary Informations

Lukla flight from Manthli Airport, Ramechhap

Due to the air traffic in Kathmandu during the peak months (March, April, May, September, October, and November), CAAN has promulgated the notice that the flight has been shifted to Manthali from Kathmandu to Lukla. If there are changes will update you ASAP.

Lukla Flights:

All we know is that the Lukla flight is sensitive in the case of weather. Instantly it may be delayed and canceled as well. A tiny Himalayan airport has difficulty facing heavy traffic which is why sometimes the flight may be delayed. So, we suggest, if you are trekking in Everest, please make sure at least you have two days additional in the program.

In the case of a weather cancellation, the best alternative to get Lukla is to charter a helicopter because the copter can fly in a lower visibility of 1,500 meters. However, Twin Otter and Dornier aircraft need minimum visibility of 5,000 meters.
What about the Helicopter cost? Is it getting instant or need to be in the queue?
A helicopter charges US $ 2500 per flight to Lukla from Kathmandu. And the US $ 500 per person on a sharing basis. Except for the emergency, during the high season and extreme weather of Lukla, you may not get a helicopter instantly or need to be in the queue. Also, if you have requested the Helicopter for less than 24 hours, you may need to wait because of the limited number of helicopters, and they’re using various activities in the mountains.
