Island Peak Climbing 2018

Taylor Benjamin | Australia

Rating: 5

We climbed Island peak with mission Himalaya in2018 October. 3 of us climbed with 2 sherpas. its very technical climbing peak using a pair of crampons, and Jumar. WE did some climbing training in Chukung with our Sherpa guide. We are very grateful with Mission Himalaya taking care of us and giving such great hospitality. Birendra was our trekking guide and Nima Sherpa was our climbing leader with Nar and Lakpa. Hopefully, we will go next time more than 6500m peaks with Mission Himalaya Treks. Recommended highly to all.
