Is it right for me?

An Island peak trek and climb is accessible to experienced climbers. Amadablam Expedition is one of the best climbing with rock and ice mix. The climbing on the route involves pure rock climbing on exquisite granite followed by mixed snow and rock climbing. The last section to the summit involves ice climbing followed by a long steep snow slope up to the summit. Crampons are used for maximum grip, and harnesses and ropes are used for maximum safety.

Fitness

We have developed an itinerary (longer than many other operators) that should enable all members of the team to safely reach the summit and complete the trip in good spirits!

You will need to be able to walk for 4-8 hours a day with a daypack. We are generally early abed but you might want to hang around and chat with your fellow trekkers, staff or local people or play a game of cards. Rest days normally involve a part-day hike to a place of interest or viewpoint as well as some relaxation time.

Depending on your general level of fitness you may benefit from a training regime in the lead up to the trek.

Experience

This trip introduces you to high altitude trekking. A spirit of adventure and a willingness to stretch your horizons are what you’ll need. Some experience of hiking will be an advantage.
