Everest Three Pass with Island Peak Climbing

TRIP OVERVIEW

Trip Information

Everest Three Pass with Island Peak climbing is a perfect blend of serenity and excitement. This trek leaps to the highest three passes of the world - Kongma La Pass (5535 m), Cho La Pass (5400 m), and Renjo La Pass (5300 m) with an enthusiasm of a climb to the stunning Island Peak (6189 m) surrounded by Lhotse and Ama Dablam.  

Everest Three Pass with climbing Island Peak expedition begins with a rendezvous at beautiful aesthetically enriched Kathmandu sightseeing the world heritage sites and a prayer at beautiful gompas of the Kathmandu valley. The actual trek starts with a flight to Lukla and curling down to Phakding across the banks of Dudh Koshi river and crossing through Hillary Suspension bridge.

Our trail passes by the beautiful emerald pine and rhododendron forest keeping us a company for a while to lead our way to Namche - the gateway of Everest, from where we are officially at the Sagarmatha National Park. Taking a permit from the authority, we reach the beautiful suburb of Namche populated by welcoming and kind-hearted people which call for a day to stopover to enjoy the hospitability of people, learn more about mountaineering from their stories and also acclimatize with the climate. 

From Namche, we leave the conventional route wandering and move forward to Thame - an oldest Sherpa village, and also the homeland of Tenzing Sherpa Norgay. From Thame, we move towards Lumde - a well-known place for its chilly cold weather among many trekkers. Finally, we cross our first high pass - Renjo La (5300 m) with the breathtaking views of Makalu, Lhotse, Cho Oyu & continue our trek with an exploration of the pristine Gokyo lakes. 

Continuing our journey from Gokyo, we head towards Thaknak extending to the second high pass - Cho La Pass with an outstanding view of the Cholatse peak. The trails further are rocky, weather with windy and freezing cold (though the amazing view of Pumori and Nuptse keeps the cold at bay) leading to ultimate destination the - Everest Base Campgleaming with the beautiful sunrise which keeps most of the nature lovers speechless.

Off you go climb down to Kala Patthar to see the darkest rock ever accompanying the white shiny snow-capped mountains giving a 360 degree close cut view of Mount Everest, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, Mera Peak, and often is an excellent time to take some pretty pictures. Finally, we move ahead to the last and highest pass of the Everest region - Kongma La Pass, giving you a picturesque view of Imja Lake and finally scaling the Island Peak

Everest High Pass and Island Peak Climbing Trek is an ultimate battle between the daring trekkers and the mountain to confront who wins -  trekkers stamina and endurance, or the mountain. 

Here at Ganesh Himal Hiking Team (GHH Team), we hope to quench the wanderlust of trekkers to understand the mountain and enjoy the beauty that it offers with our exceptional service. For further details or any questions regarding this trek, please feel free to email or contact us.

Then the trail twists below the southern flank of the moraine from the Lhotse glacier. Then, we continue walking on a short but pleasant trail along the riverside which leads to a Big-rock. On the southeast of this rock, the Amphu Lapcha route lies. The criss-cross route through Imja and Lhotse glacier leads to a wide valley flanking the southeast side of the Island Peak.

Day 17 - Preparation Day for Island Peak Summit Climb

We will 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 will boost up your confidence and climbing skills to increase the chances of scaling the summit as well as to fully enjoy the experience. You can rest and relax the rest of the day for the next day's climb or you can also take a short hike to the high camp and back. Overnight at Island Peak Base Camp.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner.

Accommodation: Island Base Camp.



Day 18 - Island Peak Base Camp to Island Peak Summit (6180 m) and Return to Base Camp, 10-12 hours

The day you have been waiting for has arrived! We wake up early today at around 1 to 2 am, as it is important we reach the summit before noon because any later and high winds in the high lands could affect the climb. Our team will be monitoring and assisting you during the ascension.

The trail moves up beyond the base camp for several hundred meters before striking off the steep hillside. 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 that difficult, there are many short rock steps to be crossed before you come across the right side of the gully. Then the trail leads to the ridgeline and it ultimately leads to exposed traverse on to the snout of the summit glacier. 

We will need to rope up for the glacier as it contains several crevasses but it leads without difficulty, to a 100m snow and ice slope on which the guides will fix the rope. From the top of this slope, 3 rope lengths along a sharp summit ridge leading to the top of the Island Peak. The view is overwhelming at the top. After enjoying the summit views, and taking pictures, we will descend all the way back to Island Peak Base Camp. We will celebrate on our successful peak climb -- a huge personal achievement. Overnight at Island Peak Base Camp.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner.

Accommodation: Island Base Camp.



Day 19 - Island Peak Base Camp to Pangboche (3985 m), 5-6 hours

We can also take a side trek to visit a Buddhist monastery in Upper Pangboche, which is believed to the oldest in the Khumbu region. Pangboche is a scening village surrounded by Everest to its north, Ama Dablam, Thamserku and Kangtaiga to the east, the Kongde range to the south and the Imja Tse river flowing through the wide fertile valley.

An amazing trip with Ganesh Himal Hiking to Kathmandu, Mt. Everest BC, Pokhara and Chitwas

hil32015 | Spokane, Washington | October 26 , 2014

Rating: 5 - Excellent

We received outstanding personal service from Binod and his team at Ganesh Himal Hiking Team. It was an exceptional experience in every way. We were met at the airport, he gave us personal transportation along with many great tours to cultural sites in Kathmandu, he took us to some wonderful restaurants and he set us up in a very nice hotel in Thammel. Binod really knows how to take great care of his clients with a personal touch. We also loved meeting his mother, father and his family which added greatly to our cultural experience in Nepal.

Additionally, Binod's brother Bishnu, was our guide on our trek to Mt. Everest Base Camp. Bishnu took excellent care of my trekking partner and me throughout the trek to Everest Base Camp and back. Our trek was also an amazing cultural experience as well as a remarkable trekking experience! We loved the Nepalese people and, of course, we loved seeing the incredible scenery. Also, Binod personally guided us on a trip to Pokhara, Nepal where he arranged for us a guided rafting trip, a paragliding trip and a trip to Chitwan National Park where we did a tour on the back of an elephant spotting wildlife and we were able to attend a nice cultural program. The accommodations in Pokhara and the food were fantastic. I highly recommend Binod and his Ganesh Himal Hiking Team to anyone who is interested in receiving the best service and the best trekking and cultural experience in Nepal.
