Nuptse Expedition is one of the interesting expedition’s lies in the Khumbu region. This wonderful mountain was first summitted by a British expedition on the north-ridge on May 16 1961 by Dennis Davis and Tashi Sherpa. This mountain shares in the glory of the Everest massif and is in the southern border of the western Chom viewed from the Thangboche monastery. It appears as a massive wall guarding the approach to Everest. The name Nuptse is Tibetan, which means west peak, as it is the western part of the Lhotse-Nuptse-massif. The main ridge, which is separated from Lhotse by a 1556m high saddle is crowned by seven peaks and goes west North West until its steep west-face drops down more than 2300m to the Khumbu glaciers. The north face is supporting an expedition to climb a new route on the North-face of Nuptse. Nuptse Expedition route is an extremely steep ice and rock mixed climb called “The Snake”. The steep and rocky south-face of Nuptse is 2500m high and 5 kilometers wide. The worth slopes are rising from the western- Chom valley with the upper part of the Khumbu-glacier above its famous icefall.
