Expedition in Nepal
Mount Nuptse Expedition is a mountain in the Khumbu region of the Mahalangur Himal, in the Nepalese Himalayas. It lies two kilometers just south-west of Mount Everest. Nuptse I (7855m) was first summit by a British expedition on the north-ridge on May 16, 1961 by Dennis Davis and Sherpa Tashi. The name Nuptse is Tibetan and means west-peak, as it is the western part of the Lhotse and 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.
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 319m. Hence it is not ranked on the list of highest mountains.
