Island Peak Climbing (6,189m) is a popular for its glacier on the west face. – The panorama is most stunning and makes the climbing experience a rewarding, life altering experience. What makes Peak Island so attractive for many climbers is, that compared to other climbing expeditions in the Himalayan ranges not many people died here during the past.

The expedition starts from the base camp, at about 2-3 am – you climb in the dark, experience the sunrise at the peak and come back to the base camp on the same day.
