Day 11High up to the High Camp (5600m) or base camp (5145m)

The decisive factor is the weather or your condition, whether we sleep in the base camp or the high camp. Through the Imja valley we cross great landscapes to the base camp in about 5 hours. At lunchtime, with a view into the mighty mountain scenery, we let us taste the packed lunch from Chukung. Then we leave to handle the last 2 hours of hiking of the day. On the one side the Ama Dablam with Amphu Glacier, on the other side of the Lhotse, we come slightly uphill, on a serpentine path to the high camp of the Iceland Peaks, which can lie in the eternal ice and snow. Depending on the decision of the sleeping place we set up the tents and let us taste the simple but tasty local dish, which cooks our crew. Our Climbing Guides will give you a little introduction and mountain training.

Day 12 Climb to the summit Island Peak (6189m)

It goes up to the summit. Ready at night or very early, depending on the place, we start to our big day. After initially rather easy way, it is slowly but steadily harder. Over a very rocky path to the Cromponpoint – from here the rocky path to an ice field changes and the putting on of crampons becomes necessary. Now it continues on the rope, over a large snow and – ice field. Under the expert guidance of our Climbing Guides, small crevasses over ladders must now be overcome. The last piece is not easy and hard work is waiting for us. On an approximately 60 ° steep ice wall we shimmy the last about 150 meters of fixed ropes to the summit. It’s done! Fantastic views of Ama Dablam, Kang Teka, Thamserku, Tawoche, Nuptse, Amalapcha, Baruntse, You can enjoy Lhotse and many other spectacular high mountains and the surrounding glacier.
