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.

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.
