Imja Tse, better known as Island Peak, is a Mountain in Sagarmatha National Park of the Himalayas of easternNepal. The peak was named Island Peak in 1951 by Eric shipton’s party since it appears as an island in a sea of ice when viewed from Dingboche. The peak was later renamed in 1983 to Imja Tse but Island Peak remains the popular choice. The peak is actually an extension of the ridge coming down off the south end of Lhotse Shar.
Imja Tse summit was first climbed in 1956 by a Swiss team as a training exercise in preparation for Mount Everest, Lhotse .This a peak is one of the most popular Trekking Peak and classified as little difficult (alpine PD+) and accessibility, especially when supported by a climbing guide and is the most frequently climbed peak in the Himalaya.
To climb Island Peak, we have the option of starting from a base camp at 5,087m a (16,690 ft) called Pareshaya Gyab and starting the climb between 2 and 3 am. Another popular option is to ascend to High Camp at around 5,600m a (18,400 ft) to reduce the amount of effort and time needed for summit day. However, adequate water supply and concerns about sleeping at a higher altitude may dictate starting from base camp. Base camp to high camp is basically a hike but just above high camp, some rocky steps require moderate scrambling and up through a broad open gully. At the top of the gully, glacier travel begins and proceeds up to a steep snow and ice slope. From here, fixed ropes will be set up by the guides for the strenuous ascent of nearly 100m (330 ft) to the summit ridge. The climb to the summit is somewhat difficult due to steep climbing. On top, but the fruit waiting at the top will quench all your fatigue and thirst of the panoramic view.
