Island Peak is 6160 meters high. This peak was named as an island peak by Erick Shipton's group in 1953 as the peak resembles an island in a sea of ice when observed from Dingboche.

Mera Peak:
(6654 meters) Mera Peak is a very famous trekking peak in Nepal and the highest permitted trekking peak. It lies to the south of Mt. Everest. J.O.M. Roberts and Sen Tenzing were the first to successfully climb this peak on May 20th, 1953. The route they used is still the normal route. This adventure is a good introductory mountaineering experience. All the hard work and effort will pay off by the stunning scenery that Mera Peak provides.

This peak presents a panoramic view of Kanchenjunga, Makalu, Baruntse, Cho Oyu, Ama Dablam, Kangtega and Mount Everest. It will present the view of Lhotse and Nuptse ridge too. Generally, we set a high camp and ascend to the top of the Peak from high camp and then can return back to base camp on the same day. This is a great adventure in the Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal.
