Nuptse Expedition Nepal

Trip Overview

Nuptse is situated at the Khumbu Himal just south-west of Mount Everest. Nuptse Expedition (7855m) was first climed by British expedition on the north-ridge (Scott-route) on May 16, 1961 by Dennis Davis and Sherpa Tashi. 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.

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.
The best season to go Nuptse Expedtion are from spring season of March – May and the autumn season of September – November. The months of April, May and October, November are the classic climbing period. The summer months of monsoon rains and the winter months from December to February are considered to be the most unfavorable for Nuptse Expedition.
