Description

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 20-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.

We start the hike in Kala Patar and delight with some of the best views of the highest peak in the world via Namche Bazaar and Thyangboche. Then, we will reach the summit of Pokalde (5806m), where the view includes four of the world's 8000-meter peaks, after navigating the Kongma La and the Khumbu Glacier. After descending to our basecamp next to Imja Tsho Lake, we are prepared to climb Island Peak, which offers excellent alpine climbing and a genuine sense of accomplishment.

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.

Mountain Guide

Hi! I'm Jyamchang, IFMGA/NNMGA certified mountain guide. I work together with a team of certified and professional mountain and trekking guides. If I'm not available to guide you, one of my colleagues will take great care of you.

I come from the East part of Nepal, between Makalu (8,470m) and Kangchenjunga (8,586m). I am IFMGA/UIAGM fully certified since 2009.

I have 20+ experience of climbing in the Himalaya. I’ve climbed Mt Everest (7 times), Mt Cho Oyu in Tibet (2 times), Mt Ama Dablam (8 times), Baruntse (2 times), Island peak (15 times), Lobuche (10 times), Pokhalde (10 times), Mera peak (10 times), Mehera peak (5 times), Chulu far east (3 times), Mt Shishapangma until camp 3, Manaslu until 7200m, and Chulu West, Lhakpa ri and other another few more times.

I also have extensive experience of climbing in Europe: France, Italy, UK and Norway (where I work for three months during the summer as a glacier guide).
I'm also a technical mountain rescue coordinator for the 8000's.

It will be my pleasure to guide you through your journey whether for trekking, peak climbing or any mountaineering expedition. Get in touch and let's discuss about the purpose of your trip.

Professional, competent and friendly guide who always takes great care of the clients. We were a group trekking and climbing during 21 days in the Everest region with the company. We were a group of friends who all knew the guide on beforehand, and knew how good he is at his work. We were very pleased with the experience we had. I can recommend the company for everyone who wants a great experience in the Himalayas.
