PEAK FREAK EXPEDITIONS ISLAND PEAK PHOTO GALLERY
Island Peak is an excellent opportunity to achieve a Himalayan Summit (6172m) together with an exhilarating trek to the Everest Base Camp and Kala Pattar and at times we include free of charge a 2 night bonus stay at the most beautiful camps of all, Mt. Ama Dablam Base Camp. If we have a climb operating while there we are happy to extend an invitation to Peak Freak members to join the team for a couple of nights.
Island Peak is located on top of the Chukung glacier between Ama Dablam and Lhotse Mountains, Island Peak has a been attracting over 300 groups each year to attempt its summit. The main reason of its popularity is its technically straightforward ridge, which attracts a lot of novice climbers without having previous knowledge of snow and ice climbing. A physically fit & acclimatized person is well qualified to make an ascent on the Peak. A short orientation and demonstration on ice climbing performed by our Ama Dablam guides and Sherpa guides at base camp works well to head you off for your summit bid.
