Situated in the Khumbu Himal just southwest of Mount Everest in the western part of the Lhotse-Nuptse-massif, Mount Nup-tse is the southern border of the Everests Western Cwm. The main ridge of Nuptse is separated from Lhotse by a 7556m high saddle and has 7 peaks. The main Nuptse climbing expedition was (7861m) was first summited by a British expedition on the north-ridge in 1961. Slovenian climbing legend Janez Jeglic and fellow countrymen Tomaz Humar ascended Nuptses 8000 foot West Face in October 1997. The Nuptse ridge goes west-northwest until its steep west-face drops down more than 2300m to the Khumbu-glacier. The south-face of Nuptse is 2500m high and 5 kilometers wide. The north side is above the Western-Cwm valley with the upper part of the Khumbu-glacier above its famous icefall. The dramatic south face with 7000 feet of vertical relief boasts the South Pillar. Since Mount Nuptse climbing expedition has been open, numerous mountaineers successfully summit this peak.
Nuptse climbing expedition begins at Lukla (2850m) and the initial days of the trek pass through the legendary Sherpa country up the spectacular high valley of the Khumbu Region. We follow the normal route to Lhotse and Nuptse massif. The Base Camp lies beside the Khumbu Glacier above its icefall. The steep and rocky south-face of Nuptse slopes rise from the Western valley with the upper part attached with Khumbu-glacier, above the icefall.
