Island Peak (6189m/20325ft) is known as Imje Tse. Imja Tse was originally named Island Peak in 1952 because it appeared as an island of rock in a sea of glaciers named by Eric Shipton. It was renamed to Imja Tse in 1983, but most still refer to the mountain as Island Peak. Island Peak situated in Everest Khumbu region in Nepal that's one of the most commonly climbed "trekking peaks" in Nepal. ‘Imja Tse’ was first climbed by Tenzing Norgay, Charles Wylie, Charles Evan and Alf Gregory in 1953 as a part of the preparation for the peak climbing, expedition and mountaineering of Mount Everest. from the top of Island Peak Summit, you can see the magnificent views of mountains of Lhotse (8501m), Makalu (8475m), Lhotse Central (8410 m), Lhotse Shar (8383m), Nuptse (7879m), Baruntse (7720m), Ama Dablam (6856m) and other surrounding peaks inside Everest region.
