Island peak climbing originated its name as the peak looks like an island between seas of ice from Dingboche. It is relatively one of the easiest expedition programs in Nepal even though the peak seems to be tough to climb. All that the climber needs is a good company and inner will to climb. It was first climbed in 1956 by an expedition team that was preparing to climb the crest of peaks or Mount Everest. This trek will lead us to countryside as well where we submerge in Nepalese and Tibetan cultures which are centuries older than now.
