Trip Overview


The Everest Base Camp Trek with Island Peak Climbing is well-recognized and believed to be among the most exciting trails in the global trekking sector. Based in the Khumbu region of Nepal, this is one of the world’s most famous climbers’ playgrounds, whose breath-taking side is Mount Everest, the planet’s highest peak. With nearly 40 miles of rough and steep ground to cover, this is not just an adventure but one that leaves unforgettable memories too. It overlooks amazing mountain landscapes and beautiful valleys and offers a peek at typical Nepalese Sherpa houses, including monasteries.

The hallmark of any tour to Nepal begins with the Kathmandu Valley. The only route for known access to the Khumbu region is through Tenzing Hillary Airport in Lukla. Simply arriving in Lukla, where the main trek commences, is a feat in itself. Lukla marks the beginning of most treks to the Everest region and serves as the gateway to Nepal’s natural beauty.

In Lukla, trekkers start following a path that gradually leads them through many Sherpa-inh-bited villages, rich forests, and suspension bridges crossing the Dudh Koshi River.

One of the key attractions, probably the most notable, of the EBC trek is the ability to acclimate with the local Sherpa people and be their guests.

The Sherpas that are involved in the climbing activities are highly involved in the climbing activities and have a very good culture. While on the Everest Base Camp trek with Island Peak Climbing, you will have lots of opportunities to converse with the hospitable Sherpa people living in those remote areas, have a closer look at old monasteries, and get an understanding of their culture.

This is followed by scenes that are different from relative downward levels as you rise in altitude. The tropical looks of the earlier parts of the regions are replaced by dry, tropical, and alpine regions. The trekking trail becomes more rigorous and challenging, and the atmosphere becomes thin where the trekking becomes tough.

During this period, it is important to adapt to the high altitudes in order to avoid the risks of altitude sickness. You will stay in Namche Bazaar and Dingboche to let your bodies get used to the high altitude.

If you continue up the trail, you will eventually reach the Everest View Hotel, where you can get some great views of the Himalayas, namely Mount Everest (8848 m / 29029 ft), Lhotse (8516 m / 27940 ft), and Nuptse (7861 m / 25791 feet), among others. You will soon make your way to Lobuche, which is a small settlement found at an elevation above sea level of 4910 meters (16100 feet).

From Lobuche, it is easy to trek to Gorak Shep, which is the last permanently settled area before the Everest base camp. Gorak Shep is a lively village found at an altitude of 5,160 meters (16,929 feet) and is the starting point of the climb to the peak of Everest.

Then, it becomes a moderate trek to reach the actual base camp of Mount Everest, which is at an altitude of 5364 meters (17598 feet). While trekkers move to the base camp during the Everest Base Camp trek with Island Peak Climbing, the accomplishment is worth the view as well as the superb display of the icefall and the mountains.

From Kala Patthar, you can see the majestic and awe-inspiring scene of the highest peak in the world. Then you will descend through Chhukung and finally to Island Peak base camp. You will trek down through Khumjung, Tengboche monasteries, Namche Bazaar, and Lukla. The final part of the entire trek is a thrilling and unforgettable flight to Kathmandu, and it will take you several days to recount all the astonishing moments of the undertaken adventure.

In general, it can be stated that the Everest Base Camp Trek with Island Peak Base Climbing is one of the most diverse and exciting adventures, exceeding expectations at every turn with stunning scenery and close representations of Nepal’s culture. By visiting this site, the trekkers are privileged to gain an actual view of the Himalayas at close range; thereby, they are also ensured of a cultural experience of the Sherpa people.

  • Be fond of the lively, popular Namche Bazaar and learn about the local people’s culture
  • Witness majestic himalayas such as Mount Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and many more

Trip info


Hikers will encounter a variety of challenges, including walking 130 kilometers along a high elevation at Kala Patthar in the Everest Camp. Additionally, the difficulties of weather conditions due to mountainous regions may also contribute greatly to your trekking challenges, as the supplies are limited and the place is unknown, where you can easily go wrong.

Nevertheless, the trek is not beyond reach, even for beginners. If you have an idea about what the journey details are and how best to pack for it, among other important things, then it is quite possible to undergo such an adventure while encountering medium-level difficulties.

Altitude sickness

When you go up, you will find that the air has less oxygen, which makes it difficult for you to breathe. When a person is climbing the Everest Base Camp Trek with Island Peak Climbing, which includes climbing Island Peak, a lot of health issues have to be observed, like the risk of having illnesses like acute mountain sickness (AMS) due to a lack of oxygen in the air at higher elevations.

To avoid getting altitude sickness, it is important for you to acclimate properly in advance.

Rest days included in the hike are intended to give your body a chance to get used to higher altitudes. Always follow the instructions given by your experienced guide, pay attention to what your body tells you, and drink enough water. Standing on the summit at 6,189 meters (20,305 feet), climbing Island Peak adds one more layer of altitude challenge.

Called “Imja Tse,” this mountain adds yet another dimension to the acclimatization process, standing as it does at 6,189 meters (20,305 feet). This is proof of thinner air at altitude, making it a condition where more strength is required for climbing. When you are up here, stay alert for headaches, dizziness, and tiredness, which are symptoms of acute mountain sickness. It can also come with nausea. In such cases, come down immediately.

Weather conditions

The weather conditions in the Everest region are unpredictable and harsh, especially when you go up high. At times, you will experience high temperatures, while at other instances, the weather will completely change, sometimes becoming very cold during the night.
