Beyond the Limits has the solution! We organize Just Island Peak climbing 5days only.

Don’t pay for the trek, Just the Peak Climbing:

Instead of bombarding you with costs for trekking to Chhukung, the village before Island Peak Base Camp, we Beyond the Limits only charge you for the island Peak climbing part. How it works? Well first up we meet upon your arrival in Nepal. After transferring you to your own booked hotel, we collect the necessary documents required for your Island Peak Climbing permit as well as the final payment. The next day we hold a detailed climbing briefing and preparation course, either at the hotel or at our office located in Thamel. Making sure you have all the required gear and equipment for the summit climb of Island Peak is the target of the day. Although not included Beyond the Limits can also organize any type of sightseeing tour in Kathmandu during this day as well.

Having checked all the gear, equipment and having your permits ready, we meet back up at Chhukung village. Enjoy the Everest Base Camp trail by yourself without overpaying for lodge, meals etc. Our Beyond the Limits trekking and climbing guide will be already awaiting your arrival at Chhukung village!

Island Peak:

After meeting up with the team in Chhukung we prepare for a short but steep trek up to Island Peak Base Camp. Here we set up camp and hold a final gear check as well as a climbing training session. Island peak is not technical such as the Lobuche Peak but still uses ladders ascenders with safety ropes. During our training day at Island Peak Base Camp, our Beyond the Limits team will make sure that you are properly educated in the use of the equipment to make a comfortable and successful ascend to the top of Island Peak at 6,189m/20,305ft.

The summit of Island Peak can be reached within a day. We start as early as possible with the climb and traverse ice crevices, steep ridges and make use of the preset safety ropes guiding us to the top.
