This peak offers an enjoyable climb the peak, also provides some of the most striking scenery in the Khumbu. If the peak can be likened to an Island in a glacial sea, than the main land forms a semicircle of cliffs that rise in the north to the rugged summit of Nuptse (7879m/ 25850ft), Lhotse (9501m/27870ft), Lhotse middle peak (8410m/ 27590ft), as yet still unclimbed and Lhotse Shar (8383m/ 27503ft).

To the east, rising above the frozen waves of the Lhotse Shar glacier, is Cho polu (6734m/ 22093ft), beyond which can be seen the red granite mass of Makalu (8475m/ 27805ft). To the south of the Imja glacier and icy flutings of Baruntse (7720m/ 25328ft) and the Amphu peaks lead the eye to the lofty pinnacle of Ama Dablam (6856m/ 22493ft), which is liked a giant sea – stack guarding the entrance to the glacial bay in which Island peak stands
