Mount Nuptse peak that falls within the Mount Everest range holds a Tibetan name which means west peak. Actually it is the western fraction of the Lhotse-Nuptse range. The main edge separating from Lhotse by a 7,556m elevated load is topped by 7 mountains and goes northwest until its vertical west-face falls downward to the Khumbu-glacier. The vertical and rock-strewn south-face of Nuptse is 2500m elevated. The main summit Nuptse I (7855m) was first summated on the north-ridge in 1961 by Dennis Davis and from a British expedition, Tashi Sherpa.

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.
