Island Peak climbing is the most popular trekking peak in Nepal. Island peak climbing with the base camp of Everest is a wonderful and fantastic adventurous trip. The local name of Island peak is Imja Tse. It is an isolated peak in Chhukung valley elevation at 6189 m (20,305ft) from the sea level. Actually, this peak is the extension of Mt. Lhotse Shar and it is located between Mount Lhotse and Imja glaciers. It involves one steep and exposed 100 m ice or snow climb, otherwise a nontechnical snow climb.
