This peak is seen as an Island in the deep of ice from the Dingbuche. The island peak is quite attractive with hugely glaciated west face rising from the Lhotse glacier. The peak itself is the expansion of the south ridge of Lhotse Shar separated by small cool. The ridge rising to the south from this point leads to the summit of Island peak. The extension part descent south west is the part of the normal route of the ascent and it leads to the south summit. Island peak doesn’t only provide exciting climb but also some of the most spectacular scenery of Himalayas in the Khumbu region. The giant mountains such as Lhotse (8,501m), Nuptse (7,879m), Lhotse Middle Peak (8,410m) and Lhotse Shar (8,383m) are clearly visible from the summit. The views of Makalu (8475m) in the east, Amadablam and Baruntse in the south add more charm for climbing Island Peak.
