Island Peak, also know as Imja Tse, is located in the Himalaya of Eastern Nepal. The name Island Peak was given by Eric Shipton’s party in 1951 due to its appearance as an island in a sea of ice from Dingboche. It was later renamed Imja Tse in 1983 but Island Peak remains the popular choice. The peak is an extension of the ridge coming down off the south end of Lhotse Shar.
