Island Peak is also known as Imja Tse, a mountain situated in Sagarmatha National Park, the eastern part of Nepal. Meanwhile, the peak was given a name as Island Peak by Eric Shipton’s team in 1951. In fact, it appears as an island in a sea of ice when viewed from Dingboche. However, it was first climbed in 1953 as part of a training exercised by a British expedition that went on to summit Mount Everest. The Peak is popular as a practical mountain before climbing other high altitude. Island Peak is non-technical but some basic snow climbing skills are required to achieve the ascent.
