This trail is off of the main EBC trail and goes to Island Peak. It's not a hard walk and takes less than 3 hours, but the mountains change around you. It is worth the side trip from the main trail.

This trail takes hikers and mountaineers across streams and through rocky and sandy landscapes with surrounding views of the Himalaya. I loved walking between the mountains and experiencing a "quieter" version of the Khumbu region, less traveled than the EBC trek itself. Yak and wildlife were plentiful in June. At the end, a short climb up the slope south of base camp reveals Imja Tse lake.
