This Island Peak summit video shows the truly stunning view from the top of Island Peak. Filmed by Trek Climb Ski Nepal expedition member Danny Collins-Roe, this Island Peak summit video was taken on a perfect blue sky day in October, 2010.

Our Island Peak expedition is a 23-day adventure that also includes an Everest Base Camp Trek. Trekking first to Everest Base Camp provides the ideal acclimatisation schedule in the lead-up to climbing Island Peak. Our Everest Base Camp trek also includes climbing to the top of Kala Pattar at 5550m which is a great hit-out in preparation for the 6189m of altitude you’ll experience on Island Peak.
Island Peak for first-time climbers
Island Peak is suitable as a first-time mountaineering experience in Nepal and you don’t need to have previous climbing experience to join this trip. You do however need to be very fit as mountaineering above 6000m is a demanding undertaking. We get plenty of people joining this trip that have already been on an Everest Base Camp or Annapurna region trek. Many aren’t prepared for the extra altitude they need to deal with on Island Peak. The extra vertical involved might only be another 600 metres above Kala Pattar, but that 600m becomes solid work on summit day.If you have any questions you’d like to ask about our Island Peak expeditions, don’t hesitate to contact us.
