After breakfast, you will ascend Nagerjun (5100m), a hill located on the flanks of the Chhukung valley directly above Dingboche. The main aim is to climb high and sleep low. The foot path becomes steep at times, resulting in a physically strenuous day. Ascending the hill could take up to 5 hours at altitude. From this altitude, there are good views of the Lobuche East (6119m), the Lobuche West (6145m), the Taboche Peak (6367m), Thamserku (6608m), the Kangtega (6685m) and the Ama Dablam (6856m).

After a short rest, you will then start the descent back to Dingboche and the walk at altitude takes about 2 hours. After lunch, we can take a well-deserved rest, as afternoon temperatures could drop rapidly as the sun sets over the mountain tops.

    Stop At: Imja Tse, Khumjung 56000, Nepal
    Today is the Island Peak Ascent (6,189m). We will begin our climb early in the morning, generally around 1 AM. In the beginning, we will climb the rock gully. This is not difficult but there are several short rock steps to climb before we emerge on the right side of the gully. The route then follows a ridgeline, which leads to an exhilarating and exposed traverse onto the snout of the summit glacier. We will need to rope up for the glacier as it contains several crevasses. The guides will fix a rope wherever necessary. A steep snow slope leads us onto the summit ridge. After enjoying the summit views, and taking pictures, we will descend all the way to Dingboche for an overnight stay.
    Duration: 11 hours

    Meals included:
    • Breakfast
    • Lunch

    Day 13: Reserve Day for Contingency

    Stop At: Imja Tse, Khumjung 56000, Nepal
    There is no such guarantee that we can get a favorable weather on our planned day for the summit (day 13), so this day is used as a contingency in case we are unable to summit the Island Peak on day 13 due to bad weather condition or some other reasons.

    If the weather gets exceptionally unfavorable, we will have to wisely postpone the program of summiting the peak. Sometimes, somebody in the group may get some problems in acclimatizing as well, or may not be well enough to make the ascent; the day can be used in that condition too. If the trip goes smoothly, we do not need this spare day.
