Island Peak, also known as Imja Tse, is a popular climbing peak in the Everest region of Nepal. With an elevation of 6,189 meters (20,305 feet), Island Peak offers a challenging but achievable climb for trekkers. In addition, the climb involves crossing a glacier and a steep snow and ice climb to reach the summit. This provides stunning panoramic views of the surrounding Himalayan peaks, including Lhotse, Makalu, and Ama Dablam. The peak is named Island Peak because it appears as an island in a sea of ice when viewed from the Dingboche village.
Moreover, Everest Base Camp is a popular trekking destination in the Khumbu region of Nepal. It is located at an altitude of 5,364 meters (17,598 feet) and serves as the starting point for climbers attempting to summit Mount Everest. The trek to Everest Base Camp is a challenging but rewarding experience, providing stunning views of the Himalayan peaks, including Mount Everest, and a chance to experience the unique Sherpa culture of the region.

Sherpa guides play a crucial role in making the EBC and Island Peak climbing less difficult. They provide guidance and support to climbers throughout the journey.
