Island Peak and Everest Basecamp 2017

Difficulty : 2/5
Fitness : 2/5

Duration : 24 Days

Altitude 6128m

Island Peak, or Imja Se is an ideal introductory high altitude peak for those who have either some or limited experience at altitude above 4000m. The peak itself is reasonably non-technical and whilst prior experience of the use of crampons and ice axe is ideal it is not mandatory.

The hardest part of climbing Island peak (if this is your first time to altitude) is actually in understanding your body’s adaptation to the process of acclimatisation and ensuring you take a slow approach to the peak.

After our summit of island peak we will continue up to visit Everest Basecamp where you will get outstanding views of Everest / Nuptse / Pumori and the Khumbu Valley.  Having completed island peak we will be able to take out time trekking to basecamp and be fully acclimatised.

Duration : 24 days

Meeting   : Kathmandu

Dates        : 29th March to 21st April 2017

Price         : $4150  USD (min 4 members)
