Island Peak Climbing
Looking at the summit from Dingboche, it looks like an island surrounded by a sea of ice. Therefore, Eric Shipton’s expeditionary group named it Island Peak in 1951. Our 17-day Island Peak Climbing Expedition aims to take you to the top of Island Peak through some of the most challenging parts of the Everest region. Island Peak was first climbed in 1953 by a British expeditionary group, including Tenzing Norgay. Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary became Everest’s first climbers.
