16-day Climbing to Island Peak, Near Mount Everest

Island Peak

Join Pasang, an IFMGA certified mountain guide, on a 16 day adventure to the top of the Island Peak near the majestic Mount Everest in the Himalayas of Nepal.



16 Days

Mar, Apr, May, Sep, Oct, Nov




  • Trek to the summit of the beautiful Island Peak in the Everest region of Nepal.
  • Spend several days and nights in a number of different Nepalese villages.
  • Explore the amazing and mysterious capital city of Kathmandu.


An amazing trekking peak that offers some of the best views in the Himalayas, the Island peak (6,189m), near Mount Everest is a tremendous mountain to visit. And on this 16 day adventure, you will not only get to venture to the top of this great mountain, but you will also get to see a great deal of the area surrounding it. Thus giving you a thrilling, all encompassing experience in the Everest region of Nepal.

Along with climbing to the summit of a 6,000 meter plus peak, where you can gaze at Everest, as well as other giants of the area, you will also get to spend days in Kathmandu. You will get to explore the city’s array of great sites, as well as venture to the nearby valley. You will get to enjoy a scenic round trip flight to Lukla from Kathmandu. While only 35 minutes, I assure you the flight is as unforgettable as it is unbelievable. You will also get to spend several days in a number of beautiful Nepalese villages, not only for the purpose of acclimatization, but also for the chance to immerse yourself in the incredible local culture.

We will be trekking for several hours for the majority of the days on this trip. As a result, participants should be in good physical condition.

A trip like this is the kind of experience adventurers yearn for their whole lives. And I would be more than happy to guide you every step of the way. To enjoy it for yourself, just send me a request. I look forward to guiding you.

I also lead a 16 day expedition to the summit of the beautiful Labuche peak as well.

About the guide

IFMGA / UIAGM Mountain guide

Born in 11 August 1975 in the mountainous district of Jiri / Dolakha, I’ve spend my last 23 years in the trekking and mountaineering sector and this is undergoing till date...

I’m a certified mountain guide of the UIAGM/IFMGA/IVBV. I’m also a certified Mountaineering Instructor from Ecole Nationale de Ski et Alpinism in France (ENSA). I'm serving Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA), Nepal National Mountain Guide Association (NNMGA) and Nepal Mountaineering Instructors Association (NMIA) as a Mountaineering Instructor.

I’ve gained enormous experience in the Himalaya as well as in the Alps. I’ve reached the top of 4000 meters peaks of the Alps and the world highest mountains including Mt. Everest (8848m) which I successfully summited 7 times.

I summit at least one 8000 meters mountain every year with my clients.

I'm also very much involved in the Nepali mountain rescue team with which I have saved lives of locals and foreigners trying to reach our peaks.

Beside being a professional mountain guide, I’ve been very much involved with the “Save the Everest” cleaning campaign that took place in spring 2011.

If you are thinking about coming to Nepal for a trek, to climb a peak or to go for a large expedition, please get in touch with me. I will be happy to support you in your organisation and make sure you can reach the objective you have set for yourself.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
