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.
