Mt Everest (8,848m), the world’s highest mountain is known as Sagarmatha “sky head” in Nepalese and Chomolungma “the mother goddess of the earth” in Tibetan. The scenery is truly breathtaking with mixed forest, flower-filled meadows, glaciers, rivers and spectacular mountainous panoramas throughout.

After Everest Base Camp you will be well acclimatised and ‘trek fit’ to take on the challenge of Island Peak. It’s classified as a trekking peak, but standing at 6,189m Island Peak is a tough challenge. Like most peaks, the crux of the climb is the summit day where you ascend over 700m on mixed terrain. The last two hundred meters to the summit require the use of fixed ropes but it is technically very easy and Earth’s Edge will provide all the training in days leading up to summit day. The views of the surrounding 7,000m and 8,000m peaks make all the hard work worthwhile!…find out more about Island Peak
