Mount Nuptse, standing tall at 7,855 meters, is situated southwest of Mount Everest within the majestic Khumbu Himal range. The name Nuptse originates from Tibetan, translating to "West Peak," as it forms the western segment of the Lhotse-Nuptse massif. Its primary ridge is distinctively set apart from Lhotse by a saddle reaching a height of 7,556 meters. The mountain boasts a series of seven peaks, extending in a west-northwest direction, culminating in a dramatic descent of over 2,300 meters to the Khumbu Glacier below.

Dominating the landscape, Nuptse presents a formidable south face characterized by steep, rocky terrain stretching 2,500 meters in height and spanning 5 kilometers in width. To the north, its slopes ascend from the Western Cwm valley, with the upper reaches overlooking the renowned Khumbu Glacier and its famed icefall.

The historic ascent to the primary summit of Nuptse, standing at 7,861 meters, occurred on May 16, 1961, when Dennis Davis and Tashi Sherpa conquered its north ridge, known as the Scoot route. This achievement marked a significant milestone in mountaineering history, further cementing Nuptse's reputation as a challenging yet rewarding peak to summit.
