Island Peak Climbing
Island Peak Climbing
As you are at the top of Island Peak, the circle of the mountains that comes to your view is beautiful which will make you stare, and all you can do at your fullest is to see them continuously. Some of the prominent mountains are Nuptse (7,879m), Lhotse (8,501m), Lhotse Central (8,410m) and Lhotse Shar (8,383m). At the same time, you love to indulge in the inescapable beauty of Makalu (8475m), Baruntse (7129m), and Amadablam (6812m). This is the most beautiful part of the Island Peak Climbing.
This massive height of Island Peak, that is, 6189 m, shows you the view of the Everest Region, beyond your imagination.
As a describer, as a climber, Travel Max Guide finds the summit day impressive and most of its clients have found it above their expectations. For them, summit day is a pleasure because it becomes adventurous by including rock climbing and glacier crossing. To make this day a huge success, our climbing guides work perfectly and efficiently. Our climbing guide provides you training on climbing at the base of Island Peak.
In Kathmandu, you are going to stay at the 3-star category hotel (Value). During trekking and climbing, you will spend your night in a tea house and tented camp. The tea house is a lodge or a guest house. The tea house is an old name for a lodge because trekkers and climbers gave this name 40 years ago. After all, it used to sell only tea then. Now they also sell meals as well as provide bedrooms for the trekkers and climbers. The old name tea house is still used by the trekking agencies in Nepal. Hence, the name tea house trek. Tea house differs from village to village where you are going to spend your night. Some have attached bathrooms as well as running a hot water facility, while others have only basic facilities, that is, you have to share a toilet and a bathroom with others. This is so because they are located in a high altitude and the remotest area. Some provide dormitory-style accommodation, but they also provide you a bed, a pillow, a blanket, and a bedsheet still, you must have your sleeping bag.
