Island peak was named by Eric Shipton in 1952 and the first ascent was made by members of the 1953 British Everest team as a training climb.

ARRIVAL IN KATHMANDU
SIGHTSEEING AND PREPARATION DAY
In the morning after having breakfast we begin the tour around Kathmandu with an English-speaking guide. During the day you will cover some of the historical and religious, world heritage sites:
Swoyambhunath –“the Self Existing One’. The oldest Buddhist stupa of Nepal situated in the small hill, from where you can see the nice view of Kathmandu valley. Historians believe that this area contains some of the oldest histories of Kathmandu. No sooner than you enter the periphery of Swoyambhunath, you will see the monks, chanting religious words and monkeys chattering and hanging around the different temple and trees. It is also known as monkey temple, a name given by the tourist.
Bouddha Nath Stupa: the ancient stupa of Boudhanath is one of the biggest Buddhist stupa of Nepal, situated in the northern part of Kathmandu valley, which is one of the trading routes of Nepal with Tibet in ancient time. Tibetan merchants used to take rest and offer prayers in this place during their trading time. Later when Tibetan refugees enter Nepal in the 1950s, most of them decided to stay. Even now most of the monks in Boudhanath is from Tibet. Around the stupa, you can see Buddhist painting schools of traditional paints “Thanka”.
Pashupatinath Temple: Pashupatinath the national deity of Nepal is one of the most significant Hindu temples of Lord Shiva in the world, located on the banks of the Bagmati River in the eastern part of Kathmandu. The word Pashupatinath is derived from three Sanskrit words: “pashu” means “organism”, “pati” means “protector,” and “nath” means Lord. Hence in Hindu mythology, Pashupatinath means “protector” and “Lord of all living things.” The bank of Bagmati River is the cremation centre of Hindu dead. Where you can see the cremation process of the hindu people. Beside this you can see the colorful sadhu ‘the holy devotee of Lord Shiva’ around the periphery of temple. After sightseeing, you will complete final preparations for the trekking adventure. Your trekking guide will meet you and give the final instruction for the next day.
