The EBC with Island Peak climbing expedition combines two iconic Himalayan experiences into one extraordinary adventure. We begin our journey by trekking to the Everest Base Camp, located at an elevation of 5,364 meters (17,598 feet).
The trek to EBC offers an opportunity to immerse yourself in the breathtaking beauty of the Khumbu region, passing through picturesque Sherpa villages, ancient monasteries, and verdant forests.
The Everest Base Camp itself provides an awe-inspiring view of the world’s highest peak, Mount Everest.
After reaching EBC and savoring its grandeur, we take our adventure to the next level by ascending Island Peak. Also known as Imja Tse, Island Peak stands at an impressive altitude of 6,189 meters (20,305 feet).
This climb requires technical expertise and the use of mountaineering equipment, making it an ideal choice for those seeking a thrilling challenge beyond trekking.
As we trek to EBC, the towering peaks of the Himalayas will surround us. Marvel at the majestic beauty of Mount Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, and countless other snow-capped peaks that dominate the horizon. The sunrise view from Kala Patthar, a vantage point near EBC, will leave you spellbound.
Throughout the journey, you’ll have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the rich Sherpa culture. Interact with the warm and welcoming Sherpa people, learn about their traditions, visit ancient monasteries adorned with prayer flags, and gain insights into their mountaineering heritage.
Our route takes us to the beautiful Tengboche Monastery, the spiritual heart of the Khumbu region. This serene and sacred place offers a tranquil environment to reflect and find solace amidst the grandeur of nature.
Prepare for an exhilarating challenge as we take on Island Peak. This technically demanding climb will test your skills and endurance. With the guidance of experienced Sherpa guides, you’ll tackle steep icy slopes and navigate crevasses to reach the summit. The sense of achievement and the breathtaking views from the top will make it all worth it.
The entire expedition typically lasts around 20 days, including acclimatization days and rest stops.
The best time to embark on this adventure is during the pre-monsoon (spring) and post-monsoon (autumn) seasons. Spring (March to May) offers pleasant weather and vibrant flora, while autumn (September to November) provides clear skies and excellent visibility.
This expedition requires a good level of physical fitness and endurance. Regular exercises, such as cardiovascular training, hiking, and strength-building activities, are recommended before joining the trip.
