Tour Details

Popularly known as Imja-Tse Peak in local community. From Dingboche the mountain is seen as an island in a sea of Ice. The summit is attractive with a highly glaciated west face rising from the Lhotse Glacier. The mountain itself is the extension of the South Ridge of Lhotse Shar separated by a small col. The ridge rising to the south point leads to the summit of Island Peak. The extension of this ridge descend southwest is the part of the normal route of ascent and leads to the South Summit. Imja-Tse not only provides an enjoyable climb but also provide some of the most spectacular scenery of Himalayas in the Khumbu region. Seen from the summit the giant mountains, Nuptse (7,879m), Lhotse (8,501m), Lhotse Middle Peak (8,410m) and Lhotse Shar (8,383m) make a semi-circle in the north. The views of Makalu (8475m) in the east, Barun-Tse and Amadablam in the south add more charm for climbing this Peak.
