Island Peak 6189m. ( Cost $ 2275 P.P ).

Description

Island Peak 6189m, (Imja Tse) is a mountain in the Himalayas of eastern Nepal. 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. In 1952 Eric Shipton followed the Imja River en-route to the remote Barun gorge between Baruntse & Makalu. During that journey he described a mountain "resembling an island in a see of ice." Ever since, the name Island Peak has stuck; although it was renamed Imja Tse by the Nepal Mountaineering Association it remains the most popular trekking peak. Dwarfed, by the massive walls of Lhotse, Baruntse & Ama Dablam, its floats between the Imja & Lhotse Glaciers, its south face rears as a rocky triangle; the end of a truncated ridge falling from Lhotse Shar. Charles Evans, Charles Wylie, Alf Gregory & Tenzing Norgay climbed Island Peak in 1953 with a group of seven sherpas, in preparation for Everest Climb. Their climb up to southeast flank and the south side from a camp at Pareshaya Gyab remains the normal route of ascent.

Island Peak ( Imja Tse ) is one of the most popular trekking peaks as it requires nominal mountaineering experience, especially when supported by a Nepalese climbing guide.
