Island Peak Climbing is the most popular trekking peak in Nepal. From Dingboche the mountain appears as an island in a sea of ice. The summit is interesting and 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 from this point leads to the summit of Island Peak. The extension of this ridge descending southwest is the normal route of ascent and leads to the south summit of Island Peak.The climb affords views of some of the most spectacular scenery of the Himalayan peaks of 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 to the north. The views of Makalu (8475m) to the east, Baruntse and Amadaldam to the south complete this fantastic panorama.
