Strive more to your adventurous legendary trip to Everest region of Nepal with ascent of Island Peak for the splendid Himalayan scenery. After years of the experience in the field of Nepal Trekking the team of the travel planners at Mountain Hawk came up with the brilliant idea to amalgamate Everest Base Camp journey and Island Peak (6189 m) Climbing in one single package. This would contribute in fulfilling the dream of touching the apex of mountains and leaving foot prints at the iconic Mt. Everest base camp in just single trip of Khumbu. Everest Base Camp Trek Island Peak Climbing is ultimate adventure for the climbers to cherish. Following the path of Eric Shipton who first climbed the Island Peak back in 1952 would be legendary task to do. This beautiful mountain summit is the best place to quench the hunger of viewing the lofty Himalayan peaks of Khumbu region like Nuptse, Makalu, Everest, Amadablam and others.
19 days of Himalayan wilderness begins similar to Everest Base Camp trek itinerary. After splendid trip to foothill of world’s tallest mountain the early morning sunrise view from Kalapathar (5545 m) prepares you well for the further adventure. The trekking heads towards the valley of Dingboche en-route to Island Peak Base Camp via Chhukung Valley. Climbers will meet Sherpa climbing members and start their ascent of mountain. The peak is called Island because it is situated at top of the Chukung Glacier rising tall like an Island. Locally the mountain is also called as Imja Tse.
As the mountain doesn’t require extensive training people without climbing experience can climb the mountain. However, strong mental abilities and sound physical fitness able to cope with the high altitude are highly required. The summit of the peak offers never seen before scenery of the lofty peaks and valleys of the Khumbu as far as Makalu. All your hardship and physical burn outs will get hefty rewards once you are at top of the peak. From summit you will head straight to Chhukung Valley. Then the journey returns back to Lukla for the trip to Kathmandu following the same trail.

Recommend Mountain Hawk for anyone going trekking in Nepal
Mountain Hawk were recommended to me by friends who trekked with them last year on their honeymoon. From the organising perspective, couldn't have been easier. Prem was quick to reply to any emails as I worked out exactly what I wanted to, which ended up going to Chitwan NP and doing the Everest Base Camp trek.

Annapurna Circuit in May
it was great while we were there together on the mountains etc. All in the same boat and as they say that sinking feeling but we were adamant and were keen on not letting the ship drown and carried on and persevered and eventually we saw light at the end of the tunnel - literally - we reached muktinath -a very holy place for buddhists and hindus alike !!!

Thank you Prem for your guidance and hospitality on my trip around the Himalaya. It was a great trip, once I will never forget. Your knowledge of the mountains is amazing. I will no doubt be back and calling you and join on Mountain Hawk Trek again.

Truly memorable trip
This was our second trek with the Mountain Hawk team and it was just as well organised and fun as the first. We were in regular contact with Prem via telephone and skype during the build up to our trek.
