Island Peak as we have known it is finished!  2024 will be our last year running Island Peak climbs on the current route.  It has been a great 15 years of running trips to Island Peak. There has been a drastic change to the risk profile on Island Peak. The quality of climbers coming to Island Peak has dropped and the rockfall risk on the headwall is becoming more dangerous. We will not be taking anymore groups until a new route to be established. Check out our Lobuche Peak page.

All of our trips have more acclimatization and more staff. We use Island Peak High Camp and we fix our own ropes high on the mountain.  READ SOME REVIEWS

Island Peak Climbs

Island Peak is NOT a Trekking Peak

Our Island peak video shows you it is not a trekking peak. We highly recommend doing one of our specific winter skills mountaineering course before attempting Island peak. We have courses in Scotland and Colorado.

As we cross the Island Peak glacier we sometime come across ladder crossings. You can train for this at home but we always have this training in Chuckung on route to Island Peak.

Climbing at 6,000m/ 20,000 feet on a 60 to 70 degree angle requires more safety. This is why we fix our own ropes on this challenging terrain at extreme altitude.  READ MORE about our approach to climbing Island peak.

Join the 20,000 Foot Club

The summit is only a couple of feet wide and getting to stand high in the Himalaya’s is something special. Marvel at the Himalayan range right there in front of you and be left inspired by the world’s highest mountain close up. Climbing Island peak is not easy but can be achieved with a lot of hill walking experience and some winter skills training.

Come Prepared for This Island Peak Challenge

We want everyone to enjoy the climb so being prepared is essential. On route to Island peak we will trek to Everest Base Camp and back through the mountains towards the Imja Valley before our ascent of Island peak.
Lots of people want to stand at 20,000 feet above sea level and this could be your chance to experience one of the classic Himalayan peaks. Get in touch for further information.
