Nepal » Peak Climbing in Nepal » Island Peak

Island Peak known as Imja Tse is a mountain in the Himalayas of eastern Nepal. The peak was named Island Peak in 1951 by Eric Shipton's party since it appears as an island in a sea of ice when viewed from Dingboche. The peak was later renamed in 1983 to Imja Tse but Island Peak remains the popular choice. The peak is actually an extension of the ridge coming down off the south end of Lhotse Shar.

Island Peak was first climbed in 1953 by a British team as a training exercise in preparation for Mount Everest. Island Peak is one of the most popular trekking peaks given its difficulty and accessibility especially when supported by a Nepalese climbing guide.
