Island Peak is one of the most popular trekking peaks in Nepal for climbing on Himalayas.  It is also known as Imja Tse. The mixture of Everest base camp trek and Island Peak climbing is the best trip in Nepal recognized by adventure seekers. Island Peak climbing with Everest Base Camp Trek is intended for that Adventurous Journey who is mentally and physically fit and wish for both EBC trekking and climbing experiences at same time .
From Dingboche the mountain is seen as an island in a sea of ice. Island Peak not only provides an enjoyable climb but also provides some of the most spectacular scenery of Himalayas in the Khumbu region. Seen from the summit, the giant peaks of Nuptse (7,879m), Lhotse (8,501m), Lhotse Middle Peak (8,410m) and Lhotse Shar (8,383m) make a semi circle to the north. The views of Makalu (8475m) in the east, Baruntse and Ama Dablam in the south add more charm for climbing Island Peak.

From Dingboche the mountain is clearly seen as a pyramid of ice and rock. It was named by Eric Shipton in 1951. The mountain itself is the extension of the South Ridge of Lhotse Shar divided by a col. The ridge rising to the south from this point leads to the summit of Island Peak.

The route follows the Chukkung Valley to Base Camp, from which the summit is a challenging 6 to 9 hour climb depending on conditions. The route includes rocky paths followed by snow and ice, a 300 metre headwall which is fixed with a rope to clip onto, and an exposed snowy summit ridge about 300 metres long which can be narrow and steep.
