          ABOUT ISLAND PEAK ASCENT TREK

          Discover the Land of the Sherpa. A trip that will transport you to the magic paths, mystic forests and legendary views surrounded by majestic peaks and some of the highest mountains in the world (Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Pumori, Thamserku…).

          Island Peak, situated on the South-East part of Everest Peak, is the most intense physical activity. It is a challenge with the most spectacular reward for our eyes, our bodies, and our minds.

          With this itinerary, we like walking away from the crowds as much as possible to enjoy nature in a more intimate way in such a popular region.

          Trek in the shadows of the Yeti still alive amongst the legends of the locals. Discover one of the highest Buddhist monastery in the world: Tengboche. Mingle in the Sherpa culture as you walk through the nature of the Himalayas. Let yourself go and discover the living rocks, and enjoy the flora and fauna in one of the most astonishing treks you will ever do in your life…
