If the peak can be likened to an Island in a glacial sea, than the main land forms a semicircle of cliffs that rise in the north to the rugged summit of Nuptse ( 7879m/ 25850ft ), Lhotse ( 9501m/27870ft), Lhotse middle peak( 8410m/ 27590ft), as yet still unclimbed and Lhotse Shar ( 8383m/ 27503ft ).
To the east, rising above the frozen waves of the Lhotse Shar glacier, is Cho polu( 6734m/ 22093ft ), beyond which can be seen the red granite mass of Makalu ( 8475m/ 27805ft).
To the south of the Imja glacier and icy flutings of Baruntse (7720m/ 25328ft) and the Amphu peaks lead the eye to the lofty pinnacle of Ama Dablam ( 6856m/ 22493ft ), which is liked a giant sea – stack guarding the entrance to the glacial bay in which Island peak stands.
September, October and November in autumn and on spring March, April and May are the best month for Island Peak Climbing activity. This is due to the clear and warm weather that’s present during the time. It is worthy to note that this month is also the peak month regarding trekking and travel activities. Hence, you will meet a lot of fellow climbers and trekking on the way.
We have to give a lot of thought in the climate and weather while climbing peaks, along with the time of the day that we climb and descend. Normally, the final climb starts very early in the morning (even at 3 am), in order to make it to the top early and return before the daily wind gusts turn the mountain cloudy and damp.
Our itinerary is designed in such a way that we reach our destination keeping all of the above factors in mind.
We do have sherpa climbing/ expedition guides are working throughout the year for different mountains, trekking peaks in different region of Nepal. Our sherpa climbing guides are experienced and certified from Nepal Mountaineering Association and Nepal National Mountain Guide Association who has gained lot of safety knowledge and Mountains.
