Everest Base Camp with Island Peak climbing - 21 Days

Everest Base Camp with Island Peak climbing – 21 Days

Everest Base Camp with Island Peak climbing Trek is designed for those adventurer seekers who are energetic and physically fit and wish to experience trekking and climbing in one trip. On your trek, you embark on an amazing adventure that takes you into the heart of the Khumbu Valley and Everest Base Camp (5,357m/17,575ft). Island Peak (6,189m/20,305ft) is one of the main climbing peaks in the Everest Region with an impressive and highly glaciated West Face that rises from the Lhotse Glacier. The EBC – Island peak climbing itinerary has been designed very carefully taking into account proper and gradual acclimatisation rests at suitable intervals. Before scaling the peak, we also take you to possibly the most popular trekking destination in the world – Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar – for close up views of Mt. Everest and other high mountains. The 19-day journey begins from and comes to conclusion at one of the most famous airstrips in the world, the Lukla Airport in the Everest Region.
