Island Peak Trek In Nepal Itinerary

  • Day 1 - Arrive at Kathmandu

    Arrival at Kathmandu

    The representative will then guide you to your Hotel

    After you've checked in, you'll meet your guide, who will brief you about your upcoming trek, and answer any questions you may have.

    Rest up, your adventure really starts tomorrow!

  • Day 2 - Flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, trek to Phakding

    A short but spectacular flight takes us to Lukla, where we will meet up with most of our porters and crew. We'll follow the Dudh Koshi valley from here, and spend the night at a lodge in the village of Phakding.

    Elevation: From 1300 metres to 2800 metres to 2652 metres

  • Day 3 - From Phakding to Namche Bazaar

    Over the course of day three, we'll cross and re-cross the river several times across high wire suspension bridges. If you were afraid of heights, you wouldn't be climbing mountains, would you?

    The last leg of the trip to Namche is steeper but results in our first sight of Mount Everest in the distance.

    Elevation: From 2652 metres to 3450 metres.

  • Day 4 - Acclimatisation Day at Namche Bazaar

    Namche Bazaar hosts a wide array of shops, bakeries and tea houses, and is well worth taking some time to explore. We will arrange a short acclimatisation trek to the nearby Everest View Hotel to give you a chance to experience higher altitude exercise (and have a lovely afternoon tea) before hiking back down to Namche for the evening.

    Elevation: 3450 metres

    Highest point: 3880 metres (Everest View Hotel)

  • Day 5 - From Namche Bazaar to Tengboche

    The trail continues out of Namche high along the Dudh Koshi valley, giving us excellent views of the Khumbu peaks most of the way.

    Then we'll face a steep descent to the bridge at Phortse Thanga and an equally steep climb to Tengboche itself.

    Elevation: From 3450 metres to 3867 metres

  • Day 6 - From Phortse to Pheriche

    Day six begins with a steep descent through the forested hillside, then crossing the Imja Khola and a steady, even climb to Pangboche village.

    The peak of Ama Dablam rises above the village, and this is one of the best places from which to view it. Two more hours of relatively easy travel takes us to Pheriche.

    Elevation: From 3867 metres to 4252 metres

  • Day 7 - Acclimatisation Day at Pheriche

    Day seven is dedicated to getting you acclimatised to the conditions we will face as the trek continues higher.

    There are many options for a day's trek here, including a trip to Lake Tshola Tsho or up the ridge over Dingboche for a view of the Imja Valley and Lhotse's south face.

    Elevation: 4252 metres

  • Day 8 - From Pheriche to Lobuche

    Today's trek will take us much higher, and we will have to stay alert for the signs of AMS as we near the Khumbu glacier.

    We'll cross the terminal moraine at the base of the glacier, and pass between the many memorial cairns set up to honour the many Sherpas who have died on Everest over the years.

    Elevation: From 4252 metres to 4930 metres.

  • Day 9 - From Lobuche to Everest Base Camp, descent to Gorak Shep

    We'll continue along the Khumbu glacier today, with Everest and the other Himalayan giants towering above us. There will be a break for lunch at Gorak Shep before the trip to Everest Base Camp.

    We will return to Gorak Shep to spend the night, but along a different path which will take us within sight of the Khumbu Icefall.

    Elevation: 4930 metres to 5164 metres

    Highest point: 5364 metres (Everest Base Camp)

  • Day 10 - Ascent of Kala Pattar, descent to Dingboche

    Our guides will wake us very early in order to see the sun rise from the summit of Kala Pattar.

    Later, we'll return to Gorak Shep for breakfast, and return to Dingboche village.

    Elevation: From 5164 metres to 4360 metres

    Highest point: 5554 metres (Kala Pattar)

  • Day 11 - From Dingboche to Chukhung

    Day eleven will take us up the Imja Valley to the small village of Chukhung. From here we can see our next challenge, Island Peak itself.

    Elevation: From 4360 metres to 4750 metres

  • Day 12 - From Chukhung to Island Peak Base Camp

    This will be a short trek up the Imja Valley to Island Peak Base Camp, which is 5150 metres above sea level.

    The last two days have been short and gradual ascents, which should prepare you for the next two days of climbing. Still, make sure to rest up!

    Elevation: From 4750 metres to 5150 metres

  • Day 13 - From Island Peak Base Camp to Island Peak High Camp

    High Camp may be less than 200 metres higher than Base Camp, but believe it or not, at this altitude, you'll feel every centimetre of it!

    Summit day is tomorrow, so make sure you are prepared.

    Elevation: From 5150 metres to 5345 metres

  • Day 14 - Ascent of Island Peak, descent to Base Camp

    Two weeks into our trek, and we're finally ready to tackle Island Peak itself.

    Our guides will wake us a few hours after midnight and give us as much breakfast as we can hold - we'll need the energy today. After an hour of hiking, we'll be at the glacier itself.

    Crampons, harness and ropes will be needed until we achieve the summit ridge. After taking in the view for a bit we'll return to Base Camp for the night.

    Elevation: From 5345 metres to 5150 metres

    Highest point: 6173 metres (Island Peak)

  • Day 15 - Contingency day

    Day fifteen is officially a contingency day, giving us a second chance at the summit just in case conditions or misadventure prevent us from making the summit on our first attempt.

    If we have already made the summit, we can start the trip back to Kathmandu a day early.

    Elevation: From 5345 metres to 5150 metres

    Highest point: 6173 metres (Island Peak)

  • Day 16 - Descent from Base Camp to Pangboche

    We'll retrace our route back down the Imja Khola valley past Chukhung and Dingboche and rejoin the main Everest route before stopping at Pangboche for the night.

    Elevation: From 5150 metres to 3950 metres

  • Day 17 - Descent from Pangboche to Namche Bazaar

    This will be a long trek, once again crossing rivers and traversing forest to reach Tengboche.

    After lunch we'll trek down to Namche Bazaar, passing Phunki Tenga along the way. Illy coffee and some of the best chocolate brownies in Asia will be waiting for you at Namche.

    Elevation: From 3950 metres to 3450 metres

  • Day 18 - Descent from Namche Bazaar to Lukla

    Our last day of trekking will take us to Lukla, following the Dudh Koshi just as we did on the way up.

    Once we get to Lukla, expect a farewell party with the trekkers and crew, celebrating another successful expedition!

  • Day 19 - Flight from Lukla to Kathmandu

    We'll hit the air early and arrive in Kathmandu before lunch.

    We'll take you back to your hotel, and plan when we'll take you to the airport tomorrow.

  • Day 20 - Kathmandu

    Free time to explore the vibrant, bustling city of Kathmandu and immerse yourself in its wonderful culture

  • Day 21 - Departure

    We'll drive you from your hotel to Kathmandu airport, and see you off on your return flight.

    Congratulations! You've climbed Himalayan mountains and returned safely.
