Apart from the exciting and thrilling climbing adventure, the trip also includes the crossing of the challenging and adventurous Renjo La Pass at 5,435 meters and Cho La Pass at 5,368 meters. Three Peaks Climb – Island, Lobuche and Kyajo Ri with Nepal Guide Treks is an excellent opportunity for adventure seeking climbers to accomplish three peak summits in the Everest Region for gaining a lifetime experience in the midst of world’s towering mountains.

Island Peak:
Island Peak 6,189 meters is also known as Imja Tse, the peak is among the most popular trekking peaks in Nepal that rises outstandingly as an Island in a sea of ice surrounded by Lhotse and Lhotse Shar Glaciers. Island peak is located above the summer settlements of Chhukung. The name – Island Peak was given by Eric Shipton’s party in 1952 while exploring around Barun Gorge. However, the first recorded ascent of Island Peak was made in 1953 by Charles Evan, Alf Gregory, Charles Wylie and Tenzing Norgay as a part of preparation climbing for Everest Expedition.

Lobuche (East) Peak:
Lobuche Peak 6,119 meters is a fascinating and attractive peak that consists of several small summits. However, the climbing of the true summit is reached by descending into a marked notch and then climbing steep snow and icy slopes to reach the Lobuche Peak summit. From the top we will have magnificent views of high valleys and numerous snow capped peaks surrounding Everest region. The first recorded ascent of Lobuche Peak was made on 24th April, 1984 by Laurence Nielson and Sherpa Ang Gyalzen.

Kyajo Ri Peak:
Kyajo Ri Peak 6,183 meters is an attractive and highest peak summit in the southern flanks of Khumbu Himal range that runs north of Namche Bazaar. The climb of this highly challenging and physically demanding peak was permitted only after 2002 by Nepalese Ministry of Tourism. The first ascent of Kyajo Ri peak summit was made by a British and French Expedition  team in the same year. The climb to the summit of the peak is made only after a moderate rock and steep alpine ice climbing that offers ultimate climbing challenges with rewarding views of high peaks including Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu and other surrounding peaks in the Khumbu region.

Three Peaks Climb Island Lobuche and Kyajo Ri with Nepal Guide Treks starts at Kathmandu. After spending a full day sightseeing around Kathmandu valley, we take a scenic flight from Kathmandu towards Lukla – the gateway to Khumbu and entire Everest region. From Lukla we start our trek on a trail that heads through dense forest filled with Rhododendron and Oak trees towards Namche Bazaar – The Sherpa Capital. By now we are above 3000 meters altitude, which is why acclimatization is very essential to avoid mental and physical sickness. After spending a good day of acclimatization at Namche Bazaar our Three Peaks Climb Island Lobuche and Kyajo Ri adventure journey continues towards Dingboche.

From Dingboche we head towards Island Peak Base Camp. Following the guidance of our experienced climbing experts we head towards the summit of Island Peak.

Once at the top we are rewarded with stunning views of Mt Lhotse, Mt Makalu, Lhotse Middle Peak, Lhotse Shar, Mt Nuptse, Mt Baruntse, Ama Dablam and other surrounding snow capped peaks. After spending short quality time at the top of Island Peak summit, we descend following the same trail back to base camp.

After successfully achieving Island Peak we follow the trail that head towards Dingboche and then to Lobuche. From Lobuche we head towards Lobuche Peak Base Camp and further to High Camp. The summit of Lobuche peak is technically straight forward. We will follow the footsteps and guidance of our experienced climbing experts to tackle the technical sections and head towards Lobuche Peak summit. Once at the top we are rewarded with magnificent views high valleys and chains of mountains in the Everest region. We descend following the same route and head towards the beautiful valley of Gokyo.

We will cross Cho La Pass at 5,368 meters to arrive at Gokyo. From there we continue to follow the trail that heads for the crossing of another challenging pass – Renjo La at 5,435 meters to arrive at Lungden. From there we trek on a trail that passes through Mende and head towards Kyajo Ri Base Camp, Camp I and Camp II. Fully equipped and properly acclimatized we will follow the footsteps of experienced climbing experts and head towards the summit of Kyajo Ri Peak. Once at the top we are rewarded with stunning views of Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Baruntse, Ama Dablam and other surrounding chain of high peaks in the Everest Himalayan Range. We descend following the same route and head back to Base Camp.

We are a group of 3 people who joined Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition for our adventurous climb of three peaks, namely – Island Peak , Lobuche Peak and Kyajo-Ri.

Everything prior and after the trip was very well handled with no problems. All the staffs were friendly, hard working and played vital role  in our successful summit attempts of the peaks. We were provided with best tents and mattresses, our kitchen crew always fed us healthy and hygienic food much needed for tuff climbing.

Our climbing guide was Ang-Dawa Sherpa, he was an experienced climber who knew the routes well and had good leadership. We really appreciate his skillful leadership that led us to the summits of all three peaks.

Climbing all the peaks was an amazing experience for us. Now we know for sure we will come back and do more climbing with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition.

For anyone who wants to gain adventure and thrill filled climbing experience, we recommend Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition !!!
