Overview

The classic trek in the Everest region, including Kala Pattar and Everest Base camp, with an optional climb of Island Peak.
This is a classic Nepal experience that will take you into the heart of the world’s majestic Himalayas mountains. Island peak expedition offers a unique chance for beginning mountaineers to climb in a relatively lesser traveled region amidst the mighty Himalayas. The summit of Island peak stands adjacent to one of the world’s largest ice walls and offers stunning views of Ama Dablam and the pyramid of Makalu. This trip walks us through the renowned Khumbu region. In the “land of the Sherpa” We partake in Nepalese and Tibetan cultures as they have existed for centuries. Our Khumbu journey offers striking scenery as we venture through unspoiled terrain.

Kathmandu - Lukla (2880m) - Phakding (2740m).

Our early morning flight by Twin Otter aircraft rushes us to Lukla, the most renowned mountain airstrip in the world. On the flight we watch the rugged foothills give way to the snowline of the Himalaya; many of the world’s highest mountains, including Kanchenjunga, Lhotse and Makalu (the world’s 3rd, 4th, and 5th highest respectively) may sometimes be seen from the window of the plane. Once we are in Lukla Surprisingly, this high-altitude trek begins by descending to the river at Phakding. We stay there.

Phakding - Namche (3445m).

The first day may have been surprisingly long for some, but stay at Phakding allows us to begin the ascent to Namche Bazaar first thing in the morning. At about half-way up the hill, a gap in the trees allow us to spy Everest for the first time. If the weather is clear the top of the South-West Face will be just visible behind the long Lhotse-Nuptse ridge. A plume can often be seen stretching away from the very summit. Namche is the most prosperous and the largest town in the Khumbu. A bazaar is held here every Saturday. The wares on display include meat, grains and vegetables, tennis shoes and trinkets as well as hand woven aprons and Tibetan boots. The Sherpas play host to trader from the foothills, as well as Tibetans from over the border. Thamserku (6648m), Kwangde Ri (6187m) and Khumbila (5707m) surround the natural bowl that Namche sits in.

DINGBOCHE (4,300m): Rest day

Rather than just sitting around in the tents or tea house, we encourage you to attempt one of two hikes. The shorter option ascends the hill immediately behind Dingboche, to drop steeply down to Periche. The Himalayan Rescue Association operates a medical post here and the western doctors conduct excellent seminars on Altitude Mountain Sickness (AMS) here on most afternoons or longer option is to trek up the Imja Tse valley towards Island Peak. The views of Lhotse, Ama Dablam / Cho oyu from here are outstanding. After a few hours Chukung is reached, and after a rest return down the valley.
