Combining an Everest Base camp trek with the aspirational experience of exploring Island Peak makes infinite sense. This is a truly epic partnering for those who love mountaineering and trekking, and for anyone who has ever dreamed of reaching the top of the world.
Nepal Mountain Trekkers make this challenging double act a reality. We provide the support and equipment to journey from Everest Base Camp, up Kala Patar to the next valley and Island Peak. We allow time to adapt to the environment and enjoy the full island Peak experience which for many is the “pinnacle” of mountaineering. It’s possible to adapt the expedition to those climbing in the Himalayas for the first time.

Personal Medical Supplies
We strongly suggest bringing Western meds with you as there are a lot of Indian fakes on the market!
Suggested: Diamox, Azithromycin, Ciprofloxacin, Tinidazole or Flagyl & Augmentin. Bring COMPEED for covering blisters & good tasting electrolytes &/or rehydration salts (Emergen-C is a good American brand). The local versions aren’t very appealing.
We also recommend bringing strong knee & ankle supports & braces, ACE bandages for sprains & strains, Tegaderm &/or other would coverings. Duct tape is always useful. We’re happy to take excess medical supplies off your hands when you leave if you won’t need them and pass them on to others. We use lots of the large amount we have with us to treat locals we meet when trekking.
That was an absolutely wonderful adventure!!! The trek to Everest BC is one of the most picturesque I think! The views of the highest mountains are just breathtaking! And if you love mountains, you should try your holidays in the Himalayas! If you want something more than just a trek, maybe you should try to climb Imja Tse? That was the adventure of my life! Quite difficult, but not killing. And safe, because we were guided by professionals: guides from the Nepal Mountain Trekkers headed by Ramesh, who had organised everything really well. I must admit, that our guides were not only very nice, but also very careful and helpful. Unfortunately some of us have finished this adventure in the hospital due to acute mountain sickness and acute pneumonia, but even such an incident was not too difficult thanks to enormous help from Ramesh and our guides. They organised a helicopter transfer to the hospital in Kathmandu and Ramesh helped in all formalities. He is a very careful, responisble and trustworthy person. And a lover of mountains! I look forward to the next Himalayan expedition with the Nepal Mountain Trekkers!
