We pride ourselves in not only top quality care of our guests but also of our local staff and sherpas. We are not your cheapest option but we offer the most complete package available.
Island Peak (aka Imja Tse) is nestled in the heart of the Kumbu region, named for its appearance as an island from afar that seems set adrift in a sea of snow, ice and magnificent Himalayan peaks. Although the hiking approach is often gauged as strenuous the climb itself is considered moderate for mountaineers. Both the hike and the climb are extraordinarily scenic and endlessly exhilarating. Our expert and licensed OUTDO guides are the ultra-experienced Sherpas who will support you safely on your summit attempt while factoring in ample time for acclimatization and a reasonable pace without compromising an itinerary that maximizes your sightseeing possibilities. This extraordinarily scenic and endlessly exhilarating adventure creates a truly unique hiking and mountaineering experience with memories that last a life time.
