The Island Peak is one of the challenging climb and fantasy of many climbers. The level of activities is from easy to hard level during this trek. Before climbing the peak you trek to EBC (5364m) and Kalapathar Viewpoint (5550m) for the acclimatization in order to counter elevation sickness. Kalapathar from where you can view mesmerizing sunrise/sunset view that reflects on the mountain ranges. EBC has to offer you a charismatic view of Mt. Everest (8848m), Mt.Lhotse (8516m, 27940ft), Lhotse Shar (8383m, 27503ft), Amadablam (6812m, 22349ft), Makalu (8485m, 27838ft) and various other mountain ranges. Namche Bazar, Buddhist monasteries, Sherpa villages, museum etc. are some of the prime attraction of this region.
