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 Everest's Western Cwm. The main ridge of Nuptse is separated from Lhotse by a 7556m high saddle and has 7 peaks. The main summit Nuptse I (7861m) was first summited by a British expedition on the north-ridge in 1961. 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.Our Nuptse 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.
