Conquer the Heights: Island Peak Climbing via Gokyo Lake and Everest Base Camp

Island Peak, standing tall at an elevation of 6,189 m, is one of the most popular trekking peaks in Nepal. Also known as Imja Tse in the Sherpa language, the beautiful island peak is situated in the Khumbu region. Since the mountain looks like an island from afar amidst the icy, cold water, the peak got its name. It was named Island Peak by Sir Eric Shipton, and it falls under the Sagarmatha National Park region, the biggest national park in the country.
