Island Peak Climbing gives an uncommon opportunity to climb the Island summit (6160m). Alongside, an energizing trek to the Everest Base Camp (5357m) and Kalapattar (5550m). Island Peak (6160m) is among the most sultry climbing tops in Nepal. The summit of this Island summit gives splendid perspectives of the goliath Mt.Everest, Makalu, and Lhotse.

Island Peak is arranged over this Chhukhung ice sheet including Ama Dablam and Lhotse Mountains. To climb Island Peak, one has the decision to begin from a base camp at 5,087 meters (16,690 feet ) known as Pareshaya Grab.

Another well-known arrangement is to climb to High Camp at roughly 5,600 meters (18,400 feet ). One needs to diminish the measure of work and time vital for a top day. Be that as it may, a satisfactory water source and furthermore stresses over resting in a more noteworthy rise may directly start from the base camp. Basecamp to high camp is basically an expansion. However, just above the huge camp, some tough estimates require direct scrambling upward through a totally open ravine.

On the pinnacle of the crevasse, icy mass travel begins and benefits a lofty snow and ice plant. Out of here, repaired ropes may be put from the manuals for their strenuous rising of right around 100 meters (330 feet ) into the summit edge.

Useful Info

Best time for Island Peak Climbing

Weather plays an important role for the trekkers while trekking in the high altitude areas. Even experienced trekkers or climbers also need help with bad weather conditions.

According to the season, weather conditions also change in the Himalayan region. The best time for climbing the island peak is when the weather is stable and clear. Trekking in such weather conditions makes the trek successful and enjoyable.

During the spring and autumn seasons, the weather is stable and pleasant; therefore, many trekkers prefer to trek during the months of the spring and autumn seasons. It is safer, and the crystal clear view of the mountains and the surroundings is possible.

Climbing in Spring Season (March to May)

Most trekkers travel in the spring season, which is the best season for trekking in high-altitude areas. During the spring season, days are longer than the nights, which gives the climber more time for trekking. Longer days help in the proper acclimatization during the trek.

Also, the weather is stable, and the temperature during the daytime is 15- 17 degrees Celsius, and at night the temperature can drop below -20 degrees Celsius. Travelers must be aware during the nighttime due to extreme coldness at night.

The chance of rainfall, heavy snowfall, and avalanches is low, but we cannot predict nature always. The road trail will be easier, and during this season, the blossoms of the national flower, the rhododendron, can be seen throughout the forest. The clear view of the sky and the magnificent view of the Himalayas and the surroundings can be captured during the spring seasons.

During the spring season, the tea house and the lodge receive many trekkers, which increases the crowd. So preparing a plan and advanced booking helps you for your easier during the trek.

Climbing in Autumn Season (September to November)
Similar to the spring season, the autumn season is also the best time for trekking. Many travelers also prefer to trek during the autumn season. Due to mild weather conditions and the pleasant weather, many people love to trek during the autumn seasons.

During the daytime, the average temperature is 12 – 17 degrees Celsius. Whereas during the night time, the temperature can drop below -25 degrees Celsius. Like the spring season, there is also less chance of rainfall, heavy snowfall, and avalanches.

Trekkers will have excellent visibility, and the trekking is easier due to good conditions and trails. The breathtaking views of the peaks and the surrounding is absolutely memorable to watch during the trek.

The crowd is comparatively less than in the spring season than the spring seasons. Fewer
the crowds help the trekker to enjoy a sense of solitude and tranquility.

Climbing in the Winter season (December to February)
The weather conditions during the winter seasons are harsh and super cold. Temperature during the daytime, on average, is -10 to -20 degrees Celsius, whereas at night time, the temperature can drop below -30 degrees Celsius.

Trekking during the winter season is extremely difficult. Due to the slippery, muddy, and icy trail, road condition is not good during this season. Also, the chance of heavy snowfall and poor visibility during the trek makes it harder for the climber to reach the destination.

Trekkers need to carry the proper gear and equipment during this season. Chances of the frostbite and getting lost are possible due to bad weather conditions. Days are the shooter in the autumn, so more days for trekking are required. Also, in case of an emergency, there is a challenge for the rescue operation and medical evacuation.

A clearer and scenic view of the mountains is not possible during this month. To trek during this month, you must be experienced. Most of the tea houses and the facilities are closed due to a low number of travelers, which adds more difficulty during the trek.

Climbing in Monsoon season (June to August)
During the month between June and August, Nepal receives the rainfall. Also, heavy rainfall occurs in the Himalayan region of Nepal. Heavy rainfall makes the trail difficult for travelers, which can lead to accidents.

The visibility is poor due to rainfall, and the dark cloud forming in the sky makes trekking navigation difficult. The scenic views of the Himalayan region will be missed due to rainfall and bad weather.

Also, there is a chance of natural disasters this month, such as floods, landslides, and snowstorms. Trail conditions and poor visibility are extremely dangerous for the trekking during this season.

Lastly, there are limited kinds of facilities for the tea house and lodge during this month. Also, the possibility of a rescue operation is lower, and we recommend not to trek during this month.

During the island peak climbing, we will reach an altitude above 6000m, so there is the possibility of getting altitude sickness.
