Everest Base Camp with Island Peak Climbing
2350

Overview

Everest Base Camp Trek with Island peak takes you not only to the renowned Base Camp of the highest mountain in the world but also to an exciting adventure of mountain climbing. Island Peak, at the height of 6,189m, is popular among the novice climbers and is used as a preparation for higher mountains like Everest. Though, physically demanding, it is less technical and can be climbed by anyone reasonably fit.

After exploring the “City of Temples”, the Kathmandu valley, a short flight next day will take you to Lukla. This is where the trekking begins. The trails take you to Phakding, a UNESCO World Heritage Site( Sagarmatha National park) in the green valley of Dudh Koshi, and then to the famous Namche Bazzar where we will spend two nights for acclimatization. Then from Tengboche to Pheriche to Lobuche; these culturally rich Sherpa villages are full of Chortens, Mani Walls, museum and amazing views of the Himalayas. Before the awaited Island Peak, we visit the Everest Base Camp (EBC) and climb up Kalapathar. The Kalapathar is popular among the trekkers as one can get a full base to top view of Mount Everest on sunrise or sunset view. Due to Everest’s structure, one cannot view its peak from the Base Camp. Finally, we trek to the base camp of Island Peak and summit it on the 15th day. Island Peak was named so due to its position at the center of the Valley, like an Island in a sea of ice. Its local name is Imja Tse. The hard work is well awarded by a 360 degree panorama view with mountains like Lhotse, Ama Dablam and Makalu. From here we trek back our steps up and down until the exciting experience of Everest Base Camp Trek with Island peak comes to an end back in Kathmandu.We also offer the famous Everest Base Camp trekking Only from Lukla

  1. Everest Base Camp with Island Peak Climbing
    I had a wonderful time trekking to the Everest Base Camp with Nepal Eco. Chhatra was very enthusiastic in our communications before the trip and furnished me readily with the necessary details of visa, permits, documents, equipment, etc. He responds speedily and is meticulous in his information. My guide, Dawa, was an affable and jovial personality who was always glad to share his abundance of technical and cultural knowledge. We had quite a few drinks together and had a whale of a time in the mountains. I was unfortunate to meet with some ATM hiccups and ran out of cash mid-trek, but Dawa came to the rescue, lending me money and sponsoring my tea most of the time. After the EBC trek I was supposed to continue on to Island peak, but heeding Dawa's advice on the foul weather I decided against it. Chhatra was kind enough to reimburse me for that part of the trip; I believe few agencies would be as transparent and generous as he. Safe to say, I had the time of my life nonetheless, and it's all thanks to these guys.

How early should I book my trip?

We recommend you to book your trip in few month advance. Even you arrive and want to organize your trip we accommodate Last MINUTE BOOKINGS. However, for Trekking like Everest region we need to reserved the flight so we highly recommend earliest is best for us.

How much extra spending money should I bring? This depends on the destination you will travel or trek. There is something you spend your money on throughout the trek other than the alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks, Hot shower on the trek, Tipping and shop round on the trek. On the other hand Kathmandu is a shopper’s paradise.. Frequently purchased items include hand-woven Tibetan carpets, hand knit woollen goods, hats, outdoor clothing and equipment, cashmere clothing, shawls, pashminas, Buddhist memorabilia, carved masks, puppets, wood carvings and jewellery etc. we suggest you to bring $200-$350 US dollar. You can only buy Nepalese Rupees in Nepal. There are ATM’s in Kathmandu where you can withdraw Nepalese Rupees Credit cards can be used to purchase expensive items but there will be an additional charge for this service.

Their insurance cover up to $5000 USD. How much should I tip to my guide and porter? Tips do not form any part of thewages of guides,porters and other trekking crews. but they are expected by the porters, guide, Sherpa and cook. it is a nice way of saying thank-you to someone who will play a large part in your trekking experience and who will prove invaluable to you on this trip. Our porters and guides will be paid more than working for other big tour and trek companies. we suggest to tip 10-20% of total trip cost. This amount must be given in Nepalese rupee. The porters live in small hill villages several days walking from the nearest bank or money changer. I will suggest you to be generous about tipping job they have done for you.
