Nuptse Peak 7855 m. - 53 Days


Nuptse is situated in the Solu Khumbu region, just southwest of Mount Everest . The name Nup-tse is Tibetan and means west-peak, as it is the western part of the Lhotse-Nuptse-massif. The main ridge, which is separated from Lhotse by a 7556m high saddle, is crowned by 7 peaks and goes west-northwest until its steep west-face drops down more than 2300m to the Khumbu-glacier. The steep and rocky south-face of Nuptse is 2500m high and 5 kilometers wide. The north slopes are rising from the Western-Cwm valley with the upper part of the Khumbu-glacier above its famous icefall.

Nuptse the neighbouring peak of Everest shares the glory of the Everest Massif and is the southern border of the Western Cwm. From Tengboche it appears as a massive wall guarding the approach to Everest and joined to Lhotse. Its steep west-face drops down more than 2300m to the Khumbu-glacier. One of the interesting features of this mountain is that its south face is 2500m. high and five kilometers wide. The main summit was summited in 1961.

Nuptse is a mountain in the Khumbu region of the Mahalangur Himal, in the Nepalese Himalaya. It lies two kilometres WSW of Mount Everest. Nuptse is Tibetan for “west peak”, as it is the western segment of the Lhotse-Nuptse massif.

While Nuptse is a dramatic peak when viewed from the south or west, and it towers above the base camp for the standard south col route on Everest, it is not a particularly independent peak: its topographic prominence is only 319 m (1,047 ft). Hence it is not ranked on the list of highest mountains.
