Mount Island Peak is one of the regularly climbed mountain for training by beginner climbers who want to ascend the 8000 mountains of Everest region.

The Island Peak climbing expedition has the advantages of starting from two base camps depending upon the climbers’ choice and preference. Among two base camp one is situated at the elevation of 5087 meters known as PareshayaGyab and other is situated at 5600 meters near to high camp. The climb to the top is a walking over a steep snow and ice slop. The climbers need to use rope when they are 100 meters before the summit ridge as it is much steep climbing. The climbers are rewarded with beautiful views of mountains of Everest region from the top of Island Peak.
