Is Island Peak Climbing From Chhukung the Right Package For Me?

Deciding if 3 day Island Peak from Chhukung is right or not depends on three things: the level of fitness, whether you have climbed before, and your health. However, it is worth mentioning that we have some simple tricks to help you find out whether it suits you or not.

  • Climbing Island Peak with Island Peak Climbing From Chhukung 3 day trip will require you to be a fit person because the hike is difficult. You will find yourself doing adventurous climbing, walking on glaciers, and spending a lot of time at high altitudes. So, you need to be really strong and have a huge amount of energy; otherwise, you won’t make it to the top.
  • If you're taking on Island Peak from Chhukung, it is very important to have some climbing experience. It helps if you've been using crampons, ice axes, and ropes as well. Being familiar with mountaineering skills is very advantageous when it comes to peak climbing in Nepal.
  • Summiting Island Peak means that you will be exposed to high altitude, so that you may feel sick. As you acclimatise to the high altitude, you will need to be comfortable with heights and identify the symptoms of altitude sickness.
  • Apart from that, you should be mentally strong for it. You must be comfortable with heights, tolerate a fair amount of stress, and be able to stay positive when the going gets tough.
  • If you have health problems, discuss them with your doctor before you climb Island Peak. Several health problems related to heart or high blood pressure can make it more dangerous to climb at high elevations.

The higher Camp is passed through a narrow opening of the rocks, and it gets crowded as you go.

You will take a short break at High Camp and then go to the glaciers to climb to the top of the summit of the Island Peak. At around 3 hours, you will be at Crampon Point, which is where you put on crampons and walk on an icy track, holding onto a rope at 5700 meters. The guides may set a rope on the glacier, but it's not that hard. The biggest challenge of course, is climbing a vertical wall right before the top. The instructors will attach ropes and harnesses for your safety.

We will spend some time viewing the peaks and glaciers before moving back to base camp. Then, the next step will be returning to Chhukung Valley.

When is The Best Time for Island Peak Climbing From Chhukung?

Island Peak Climbing From Chhukung will be best in Spring and autumn. These are the same months suitable for other trips in the Everest Region, such as Everest Base Camp Journey and Everest Three High Passes Tour.

Here is what the primary climbing season for island peak climbing will be like.

Spring: Great Season For Island Peak Climbing

Spring (March to May) brings along several reasons for which this period could be a better time for Island Peak Climbing From Chhukung. Unlike the most extreme winter months, the Spring season is characterized by fairly predictable patterns that minimize the chance of facing snow storms or blizzards. Besides, when snow is compacted, climbing becomes easier, and the longer daylight hours allow staying on climbing for longer periods. The pleasant weather guarantees a more soothing Island Peak Climbing From Chhukung climb, while the quietness of the place assures a tranquil and private ascent. These mountains, in Spring, usually stay at -17 degrees Celsius, with daytime temperatures reaching 7 degrees Celsius, which is comparatively comfortable.

Autumn: Another Great Season for Island Peak Summit

The weather of Autumn and Spring are very similar. Hence the season between September and October is the best time for short 3 day Island Peak Climbing From Chhhukung.
