Island Peak Climbing from Chhukung, a preferred adventure for trekkers around the EBC and climbers alike is situated in the middle of Chhukung valley, just like an island. The peak takes good effort to scale as it is glaciated in the west face, yet is equally rewarding with magnificent views form the top. Outstanding views of Everest, Makalu, Lhotse et cetera definitely makes the climbing enthusiastic.
At Chhuking(4750m), a short walk leads to a small settlement where we rest for the day and make preparations for the climb. The next day we head on to Island Peak Base Camp, which is a steep climb followed by a comfortable walk through the river basin. Strenuous climb further takes us to High Camp at an elevation of 5600 meters where we rest inside the tent and prepare for the early morning climb the next day. Through rock formations and glacial regions, we ascend to the top, taking the support of rope at some places. After enjoying the splendid view from the top, we make a descent all the way to Chhukung, where we rest after the strenuous journey. An extra day has been added to the trip as a contingency to bad weather or physical ailments.
