Island Peak Summiting in 4 Days
Island peak trekking can be done by individuals who are trekking by themselves to the Everest base camp. We are focusing on them or rather encouraging them to at least get the experience of climbing in the Himalayas. This trip starts or connects to chukking valley to all the way to island summit and return back to chikking . Everest Base Camp trekking is one of the popular trekking destination in the world . It begins from one of the scenic flight to Lukla. The Trip and its Itineraries were designed by our crew of our veteran guides and climbers with all the necessary health precaution in mind.The adventurers trek by themselves from Lukla to Chukking then connecting our trip to Island Peak at Chukkung.
Day 01 Chuukung - Island Peak Base CampToday after beakrfast,we will meet with our climbing crew at chukkung who will tell us about the trek and guide usthroug the day’s proceeding in brief. We will then gather our items and begin our journey to island peak base camp where we will connect with our other crew members who will be instructing and supervising our expedition.
Day 02 Island Peak Base Camp AcclimatizationToday we will spent a day in island peak base camp for acclimatization. Today we will be mostly be talking about our expedition the next day. We begin our pre-climb training today after breakfast. Our guides will provide training on peak climbing techniques and the proper ways of using climbing gears such as the ice axe, climbing boots and crampons, harness, ascender, etc. The training will also include using ropes to go up and down. Although it is not mandatory to have prior training for Island Peak Climbing, we strongly believe that some training experience will boost your confidence and climbing skills to increase the chances of scaling the summit as well as to fully enjoy the experience. We can spend the rest of the day hiking to high camp and back or resting for the next day’s climb. Overnight at the base camp.
Day 03 Summiting DayWe wake up early today at around 1 to 2 am and have our breakfast before beginning our climb. It is important we reach the summit before noon because in the afternoon the strong winds in the high lands might become a barrier for a successful summit. The trail moves up beyond the base camp for several hundred meters before striking off the steep hillside. Initially sandy, the path soon turns to grass before becoming boulder strewn. As we climb up the hill, we will see that the slope narrows and the trail enters a steep rock channel. We climb the rock gully. This is not difficult but there are several short rock steps to climb before we emerge on the right side of the gully. The route then follows a ridgeline, which leads to an exhilarating and exposed traverse onto the snout of the summit glacier. We need to rope up for the glacier as it contains several crevasses. The guides will fix a rope wherever necessary. A steep snow slope leads us onto the summit ridge. After enjoying the summit views, and taking pictures, we descend all the way to Island Peak Base Camp where some of our crew are waiting for us. We celebrate on our successful Island Peak climb.
Day 04 Island Peak Base Camp - Chuukkung
Today we will head back to chukkung after breakfast. The short but harsh journey will come to an end when we reach Chukkung valley. The guide will lead all the way from the base camp to chukkung valley. Once the check in to the lodge in the valley is complete we will part our ways and say our goodbyes until next meeting.
