Trip overview

Seen from above Dingboche the mountain Imja Tse (Island Peak) resembles an island in a sea of ice. It was first climbed in 1953 by a very prestigious team in preparation for the ascent of Everest. It is an interesting and attractive summit with a highly glaciated West Face rising from the Lhotse glacier. The mountain itself is an extension of the South ridge of Lhotse Shar and is separated by a small col. Above this gap, rising to the south is a classically beautiful ridge leading to the summit of Imja Tse. As well as providing an enjoyable climb, the peak also provides some of the most striking scenery in the Khumbu region.

Documents required (for climbing permit and flight):

  • Passport details photocopy
  • Passport photo 2 nos.

Payment:

Advance in Cash / Credit Card
Note: Credit card payment will attract a bank transaction charge of 3.75%

Contingency day:

  • Private trek or group option

We can organise this trek on a private basis for groups of friends, families, clubs, charities or any other group. Depending on your previous trekking experience, you may want a Climb High leader or have no ‘leader’ but sill use the help of one of our guides and/or porters. Costs for this option are available on demand but are often not a huge amount greater than joining one of our ‘fixed departures’. Please contact us with your referred dates and itinerary and we’ll give you a quote.

  • Additional Information

Trekkers need to provide their own personal clothing and equipment. It is recommended that you use tried and tested kit on the trip rather than relying on brand new kit you’re not sure of.

A complete kit list is to be found on this website.

Climb High is a local Nepali company and as such we treat our own people with the respect and good conditions you would expect. Many team members are from our own families and you can be assured that the treatment they receive is second to none. All insurances and porter conditions are met, and more.

  • Porter welfare is paramount to us – we are a local company and want to ensure that we take care of our own staff.
  • We are a premium Nepali trekking operator, with impeccable local contacts – any changes in plan can be dealt with far more effectively using our experience and network of local contacts.
  • We have our own modern offices in central Kathmandu in Mandala Street – Thamel’s premium street

Travel in Nepal can be dangerous, delayed and highly changeable. Weather conditions, availability of porters and the health of team members can all contribute to changes.
