The combination of Everest base camp and island peak creates very exciting and adventurous trek. In this trek we reach up to base camp of Mt. Everest and climb island peak (6,189 m). It is fully challenging trek. Island peak is known as Imja Tse gives a look of Island in a sea of ice from dingboche. This is the main reason for this name and it was given by Eric Shipton in 1952. It is surrounded by Lhotse and Lhotse Shar Glaciers. You need to have full experience of trekking. You should know the method of using professional tools. The trend of combining two treks is running now a day.
