Imja Tse peak towers at a height of 6,160 meters, and gets famed by the Island Peak (Named by Eric Shipton’s party in 1953), as the peak resembles an island in a sea of ice when viewed from Dingboche. Later in 1983, the peak was renamed as Imja Tse.
The peak was first ascended in 1953 by a British team as preparation for climbing Everest. Tenzing Norgay was one of the members who successfully ascended it. In addition to the actual climb, the trek involved in this trip gives you "the grand tour" of the famous Khumbu valley.
