    Useful InformationGood to Know

    Lukla flights

    You will start the Island Peak climbing with the Everest Base Camp trek from Lukla. It is the gateway of the Khumbu region, and the quickest and most economical way to travel here is by taking the Lukla flight from Kathmandu. In the peak trekking/climbing season, the Lukla flight takes off from Ramechhap Airport, which is located 5 hours away from Kathmandu.

    Likewise, in winter and summer/monsoon seasons, the Lukla flight is operated from Kathmandu's domestic airport. The flight is 30 to 35 minutes long and offers stunning snow-capped mountain views. During the spring and autumn seasons, the weather remains mostly stable, so the Lukla flights are mostly on time, and the chances of cancellation are rare.

    you happen to take the Lukla flight from Ramechhap Airport, you have to drive to the airport around 1:00 AM to arrive at the airport on time for an early flight. Travelers who are looking for an alternative to the Lukla flight can opt for a shared helicopter flight (extra charge applies).

    Island Peak climbing difficulty

    Island Peak climbing with trekking to Everest Base Camp is a physically demanding journey. Participants have to be physically and mentally strong to join this expedition in the Himalayas. Island Peak is one of the beginner-friendly trekking peaks in Nepal. The climbing route is not technically difficult; however, the physical demands are very high.

    If you have previous trekking experiences with strong fitness, you may consider Island Peak climbing for your next adventure. Our Island Peak climbing itinerary involves trekking to the Everest Base Camp before you begin climbing. It helps climbers to well acclimatize before they arrive at the Island Peak Base Camp.

    Likewise, our itinerary also allows you to take two acclimatization breaks before the climbing part begins. This helps you avoid altitude sickness. You will trek on rugged terrain via dense forests and glacier moraines. Once you are at the base camp of Island Peak, you will follow the lead of your guide and climb.

    There are a few entry-level crevasses along the route. Apart from that, climbers walk on rocky ridges, snow mantles, and glaciers. You will use the basic climbing gear. The team leader will teach you some basic climbing skills to help you climb safely. Before reaching the Island Peak summit, you will climb a steep snow headwall. It is a 60-70-degree face about 150 meters tall.

    Altitude sickness during the Island Peak climbing

    There is a high risk of altitude sickness during Island Peak climbing, but you can also avoid it by being aware of it and practicing the precautions. Following our Island Peak climbing itinerary, you will trek for 9 days and spend nights in varying altitudes.

    Likewise, the acclimatization days in our itinerary and hike to EBC also allow you to adjust to the altitude before you begin climbing. Do note that your fitness and age do not matter. If you are not taking the proper measures, you may get altitude sickness.

    So, follow the below guidelines to avoid altitude sickness during the Island Peak climbing with EBC:

    • The early symptoms of altitude sickness are headache, vomiting, difficulty in breathing, insomnia, nausea, etc. If you see any of these symptoms, inform your guide and take medicines under his guidance.
    • Do not ignore the above symptoms because if it gets worse, we may have to air evacuate you to the hospital in Kathmandu, which will result in canceling the climb.
    • You have to keep yourself hydrated during the trip. Drink 2 to 3 liters of water every day and combine soups, ginger/lemon tea, etc in your meals. Also, pack electrolyte powder and mix it in your water for instant hydration and to maintain your energy.
    • Do not drink alcohol or lots of coffee. Likewise, do not smoke while ascending. It will dehydrate your body, which we do not want.
    • Maintain your pace and listen to your body. Get ample sleep and have nutritious meals.

    What is the best time to do the Island Peak climbing?

    The best time to climb Island Peak and hike to Everest Base Camp is spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November). These two are the top trekking and climbing seasons in the Himalayas. The weather nuances are very low in spring and autumn, with many summit windows.

    Climbers get to enjoy lush vegetation and stunning mountain views. Trekking to Everest Base Camp is exciting in spring and autumn because the trail is bustling with trekkers and climbers from around the world. The atmosphere is quite joyful, and the moderate climate makes your time in the mountains fantastic.

    The temperature ranges from 5°C to 28°C in the daytime. Mornings and nights are usually cold. Summer/monsoon (June to August) and winter (December to February) are not ideal times for Island Peak climbing or any climbing expedition in the Himalayas.

    The weather conditions are not good, and there are almost no climbing windows. Likewise, the challenges are high, and the success rate is also very low.

    How are accommodations and meals during the Island Peak climbing?

    You will spend three nights in Kathmandu and 15 nights in the Khumbu region. In Kathmandu, we will book a three-star hotel for you in Thamel. Likewise, during trekking, you will spend nights in lodges. At the Island Peak Base Camp, you will camp. Our team will make all the accommodation arrangements for you.

    All the accommodations will be comfortable and safe. We book twin-shared rooms, so if you are traveling alone, you may request single rooms at the time of booking. You have to pay a little extra money for single rooms. Lodges will be simple but clean and cozy.

    Private washrooms are available in lodges at the lower elevation, but as you go above Tengboche village, shared washrooms are much more common. You will also have the meals in the lodge. The food options are great for trekkers in the Khumbu region.

    Services like hot showers, charging, and WiFi require a few extra bucks in most places. So, we highly recommend you budget some money and carry Nepali cash in small denominations. Our Island Peak climbing cost does not cover these expenses.

    At the Island Peak Base Camp, you will stay overnight in alpine tents, and our team will prepare the meals for you. The menu ranges from dal bhat, thukpa, stew, fried rice, eggs, momo, noodles, porridge, soups, mashed potatoes, sandwiches, pasta, bakery items, etc.

    Travel insurance for Island Peak climbing

    Travel insurance is mandatory for Island peak climbing in Nepal. It must cover helicopter evacuation, so make sure to verify with your company. Likewise, you can also include financial protection for illness, injury, or natural disasters that may cancel your trip, international flight cancellation, medical bills, etc. Not all travel insurance covers evacuation in the Himalayas, so double-check it with your company.

    Guide and porter during the Island Peak climbing

    You will climb the Island Peak with a professional mountaineer who will guide you throughout the trip. He will provide you with pre-climbing training and also make sure you are safe throughout the expedition. Likewise, our porter will carry the duffel bag, tents, and other essentials for the journey.
