Island Peak Climbing is a conglomerate of the Island Peak, Everest Base Camp, Namche Bazaar, Gorakshep and Kalapathar.
The Everest Base Camp Trek and Gorakshep lie prior to the Island Peak. Gorakshep is situated in the Sagarmatha National Park. The Gorakshep village is a homeland of the Sherpa people who make their living majorly by mountaineering and guiding. Gorakshep is the starting point of the hike to Kalapathar. Kalapathar literally means ‘black rock’ in Nepali. It offers trekkers the best view of Everest and in addition the view of Nuptse Nup II, Changtse and a part of Lhotse.
About Island Peak
lies in the Eastern part of Nepal. It is exactly located in the upper Imja Valley. It is also known as Imja Tse. The first climb to Island Peak was made in 1956 by a Swiss Team. The steep climbing during the Island Peak Climbing attempt shifts it to the category of difficult ones.
Namche Bazaar is located in the Khumbu valley. The Namche Monastery, Namche library, Museum of Sherpa life and the Namche bazaar (market) are the major places to visit in the Namche area. Namche is known among trekkers for being a place favorable for altitude acclimatization and the refilling center of their necessary stock. Traditionally, Namche Bazaar was a trading post. There is a lot of variety in lodging, food and communication facilities in the Namche area.
