FAQ

Q:When is the best time to climb Island Peak ?

  • Although it is possible to climb Island Peak throughout the year except during the monsoon months, the best and most suitable time of the year is spring and fall season. March to early June is the spring time and also the busiest climbing season of the year. September to November is the fall season when temperatures are moderate and weather tends to be clear. Climbers have attempted to climb Island Peak even in winters in the past, but the extreme cold during winter months could really be perilous for some. Summer season invites rain and does not offer great views during the climb.

Q:Which is harder: Mera Peak or Island Peak ?

  • Bringing out typical tastes of peak climbing in Nepal, both Island Peak and Mera Peak have their own set of peculiarities. Mera Peak is slightly higher than Island Peak while Island Peak, with more steep ice climbs, is considered a little more technical than Mera Peak. Mera Peak is high but has very few challenges like crevasses while Island Peak has numerous challenging sections and the headwall, the narrow ridge to the top and several icefalls make it rather difficult. Mera can be climbed without proper mountaineering skills while climbing Island Peak demands basic mountaineering as well as some technical knowledge. The rocky ridge, glacial walk, tapering summit, and ice walls make Island Peak climbing more susceptible to altitude sickness. In the final say, the climbing section at Island Peak is harder than that of Mera Peak. But, the trekking section up to the base camp of Mera Peak is harder than that of Island Peak. Also, the trail to Island Base Camp is much more crowded that the trail to Mera Base Camp.

Q:Can you see Mt.Everest from Island Peak ?

  • Mt. Everest is not visible from the summit of Island peak as the peak is tucked behind the shoulders of Mt. Lhotse. However, you can marvel at the magnificent views of Mt. Ama Dablam, Mt. Lhotse and Mera Peak.

Q:How fit do I need to be for Island Peak Climbing ?

  • Island Peak is sometimes called ‘trekking peak’ because of its non-technical nature. Trekkers with good physical condition and some mountaineering skills could possibly accomplish this feat without difficulties. Moreover, people who have already done the Everest Base Camp trek or the Kilimanjaro climb or any other trek or climb up to 5,000 m (16,404 feet) can easily do the Island Peak climb. You need to be physically strong at the same time because you will be climbing on ice and rock on vertical slopes with ropes, snow boots and crampons. However, just being fit and healthy does not mean that you are ready to scale the peak. We recommend climbers going through a series of fitness routine several months prior the actual climb. Make climbing a regular part of your daily activity or simply start an outdoor hiking routine carrying around 20-25 Kilos of backpack while ascending to build up stamina. Next, build up your overall body strength by doing free weight training and other body weight exercises. Incorporate some cardiovascular training to build up your body conditioning, including jogging, running, walking on an inclined treadmill, aerobic workouts, and walking up and down a hill. Himalayan Glacier will send you instructions and guidelines before you arrive in Nepal for your climb.

Q:How hard is Island Peak Climbing ?

  • Island peak climb is basically recommended for beginners willing to step into the world of mountaineering. Even then, climbing Island peak requires having an experience of trekking in high altitude. Island peak is a difficult climb at an extreme altitude with a steep ascent and thin air to breathe. The foot of the head wall is the hardest part of the climb. Nevertheless, the climbing route is safe with fixed lines all the way to the summit.

Q:How much does Island Peak Climbing cost ?

  • The cost of any trip in the Himalayas depend on a number of factors including the company you choose, the services they offer, number of days, various routes and more. The cost is something similar like buying an iPhone – some come with less features at a low cost while the latest ones with increased features will cost a bit more. In general, the price for climbing Island Peak ranges from $3200 to $4600 per person. Also depending on group size, duration of trek, whether it is a tent or tea house trek, whether domestic flights or jeep transport is included.

Q:What do we need for trekking in Nepal ?

  • Good boots, warm clothes (we provide a packing list for each trek) and your own day pack. We provide a lot of the gear that you will need up in the mountains. Please be in touch for more info.

Q:What size are the groups ?

  • For our upcoming treks the groups vary between 2 to 15 people. Private trekking parties group sizes are not limited.

Q:I am travelling on my own, can you assist ?

  • Most definitely. You are welcome to join our pre-planned treks, or if you wish to trek on your own, we can arrange a porter and guide to accompany you.

Q:What do I prepare for Altitude ?

  • The secret to altitude is time. The golden rule for acclimatization at high altitude states that one should start acclimatizing at +/-10,000 feet (3,000 meters) above the sea level. Once you reach that altitude, it is recommended that you increase the elevation of your stay at no more than 1,000 feet (300 meters) per night before you continue to ascend. Resting overnight at 1,000 feet (300 meters) elevation increase each day will help your body to acclimatize naturally.
