Island Peak Climb via Chola Pass Trek – 24 Days

Duration

24 days

Group Size

2-10 People days

Max Altitude

6160 m/20209 ft

Island Peak is definitely one of the best opportunities to achieve Himalayan submits at 6189 m. Island Peak is the mostly climbed trekking peak of Nepal which is located on the top of the Chukung Glacier in Everest region between Amadablam and Lhotse mountain ranges. Island Peak is one of the easiest trekking peaks of Nepal. Each year many peak climbers try to attend the top of submit. Route combination of Gokyo Valley, Everest Base Camp and Kalapatthar; the itinerary is among the best in Nepal for people searching true adventure. We believe that the main motive of climbing Island Peak is its admiration and the strictly honest elevation that comforts many beginner mountaineers without any information of climbing. The magnificent views from submit are definitely striking.

Trip Route: Kathmandu- Lukla- Namche- Gokyo- Chola Pass- EBC- Chhukung- Island peak- Namche- Lukla- Kathmandu

Best Season: Septemebr to November and March to May

Important Note:

The flight between Kathmandu and Lukla where the trek starts is generally reliable but if the weather is bad all flights will be delayed or canceled for the day. In the event the flight is canceled we will attempt to get you on a chartered helicopter but you are responsible for the extra costs in this event which can range from $200 to $600 or more depending on the number of people on the flight.

We in some itinerary schedule one extra day into the trek already as a buffer day in case of delays and in some Itineraries do not have extra day after trek but as flights can at times be delayed for several days we suggest you add a couple of extra days at the end of your trip in case of any delays. Extra days should always be scheduled at the end of the trip and not the start.

Important Notes and Safety Concerns

Trekking is simply not just walking. Some of our trips are extremely adventurous and needs serious efforts to complete them successfully. We kindly request all our valuable guests to come well prepared before doing any of these extreme treks. Buying proper and reliable insurance coverage with Helicopter Evacuation on emergency is the most important thing before starting the adventures. Sometimes, our treks are done in extremely remote places where you will have no access to outer world. On serious injuries or sickness Helicopter can be the only mean to evacuate you. In other hand bad weather conditions can also ruin the whole adventures. So, we say

"Get prepared first and enjoy the adventure without worrying"".
