Climbing Island Peak Climb (6,189m/20,305ft)
Island Peak is one of the 6000m trekking peaks in the Everest region. The route is not technical but requires good physical strength as it climbs steep sections and a thin summit ridge. It is the first choice of many when climbing the 6000m mountain. Island Peak is a classic 6000m Himalayan peak that takes your mountaineering skills to new heights in one place. The island peak is the second most sought after peak in the Everest region after the mighty Mount Everest. Standing at a height of 6189 meters, this peak offers a real climbing experience using ladders and fixed ropes on a steep snow sleeve at 45 degrees.

Pokalde Climb (5,806m/19,049ft)
Climbing Pokalde does not require special technical skills but requires a strong ability to conquer the steep rocks to reach the summit. Crossing the Khongma La Pass, we will attempt to climb the Pokalde North Rock. We may have to use fixed ropes at some points. The summit offers views of Island Peak, Mount Ama Dablam and other peaks and mountains.

Climb Lobuche East Ascent (6,119m/20,075ft)
Lobuche Peak is presented as an ideal Himalayan climb for beginners. Climbing provides a great foundation for building more mountaineering skills. The climb to Lobuche East does not involve real difficulty but there is a sense of some exposure along the way. Lobuche East Peak also serves as an excellent introductory climb for people looking to climb 8000m. Many climbers attempt the Lobuche as part of their acclimatization. The peak offers panoramic views of the Khumbu Valley including Everest, Pumori, Ama Dablam and other peaks and mountains.
