The mountains have called again and I’m looking for guides/partners to climb Imja Tse (Island Peak) sometime around end of April (flexible dates). I’m traveling alone and plan to trek from Jiri. I have done 3 High Pass (Khongma La, Cho La, Rhenjo La) and (Chukhung Ri, Kala Patthar, Gokyo Ri). Did ABC too before. I don’t mind doing EBC again if the majority wants, but recommend from Lukla to save time.
I am hoping to form a team (with some high altitude experience) to share a permit (4 pax) and engage a guide to help us climb Island Peak from Chukhung only, including camping and food for one night. Total activity should take 4 days. The rest of the days around khumbu should be solo to self-acclimatize. Guide to help supply harness, jumars, ropes, crampons, etc. I have my own but need a few more essentials.
I trek slow and safe for what better way to enjoy the moment. My highest last year was 5500m from the high passes, and hope to make it to summit of 6400m this year, bistari, bistari 🙂
So drop me a message to express your interest and info and/or if you already have a team and space for one more!
