Mount Nuptse Expedition

Sky-piercing Nuptse (7855) Mountain is a very close neighbour of gigantic Mount Everest which lies in the Khumbu Himal. It is standing at the southwest of the Mount Everest sharing the glory of the Everest Massif and is the southern border of the Western from the Thangboche Monastery and it seems like an enormous wall guarding the colossal Everest. Nuptse Mountain is given the very name by the Tibetans which mean west-peak.
Nuptse is joined to Lhotse; the main ridge is joined to Lhotse by a 7556m high saddle made up of 7 peaks. The main summit Nuptse I (7861m) was first scaled by a British expedition on the north-ridge in 1961 by Dennis Davis and Sherpa Tashi. Notably, Sir Chris Bonington was also a member of the FA expedition. The Nuptse ridge goes west-northwest until its steep west-face drops down more than 2300m to the Glacier. The south-face of Nuptse is 2500m high and 5 kilometres wide. The north side is above the Western-Cwm valley with the upper part of the Khumbu-glacier above its famous icefall.Our venture commences from brief flight to Lukla (2850m) and the trekking part starts, the initial days of the trek pass through the traditional Sherpa country up to the stupendous high valley of the Khumbu Region. The trail leads us to Base Camp that lies beside the Khumbu Glacier above its icefall. And from there we only head high to the summit of Nuptse Mountain.
