Mount Nuptse (7,885 meters) expedition is a thrilling journey in the Mahalangur Himalayas just about 2 km southeast of Mount Everest. This Solu Khumbu region expedition is an opportunity to experience and observe seven Nubtse Peak above 7000 meters and Khumbu-Glacier above its famous icefall. Trekkers can overwhelmingly expect to see the magnificent vista that lies in this region.
Mount Nuptse expedition and exploration to the highest among 7000 meters peak is extremely dangerous because of loose snow with a lot of hollow. Other six high peaks crown the main and popular ridge Nuptse, of snow east-west trending route. Like peaks Nubtse, I (7861 meters), Nuptse II (7827meters), Nubtse Shar I (7804 meters), Nubtse Nup I (7784 meters), Nubtse Shar II (7776 meters), Nubtse Nup II (7742 meters), and Nubtse Shar III (7695 meters) are the above 7000 peaks adjoining Mt. Nuptse. Mt. Nuptse is seen from Khumbu and Solu area. Denni Davis and Sherpa with the work team of Chris Boningtons, Les Brown and others first successfully reached the summit on May 16, 1961 AD.
A scenic flight to Lukla, then Namche bazaar offers a magnificent observation of Thayngboche Monastery with linking rhododendron and pine forests. The Nuptse (Nuptse) expedition tantalizes determined travelers with gigantic vistas like Nuptse, Everest, Lhotse, Kwangde and such others. A hike from Everest Base Camp onto Kala Pattharat 5,545 meters is eccentric. The 360- degree views o high peak like Everest, Kanchenjunga, Annapurna range and much others is sensational to the soul. The expedition of Mt. Nubtse also known for west peak comprises base camp ranging from 5,650 meters to 6959 advance or high camps. The expedition rates as strenuous/ adventure.
