Nuptse I ( 7,861 m / 25,791 fts ) lies in the Mahalangur Himal range, in the Nepalese Himalayas. Mt Nuptse remains as the gem of Khumbu region lies 2 km south-west of the world tallest mountain mt Everest or Chomolungma. Nuptse is a Tibet word which means west peak, as it is the western segment of the Lhotse-Nuptse massif. The main peak of Nuptse I separated from lothse by a 7556 m high encumber and has 7 Peaks. They are Nuptse I (7,861m /25,791 fts), Nuptse II (7,827m / 25,679 Fts), Nuptse Shar I(7,804 m/ 25,604 fts), Nuptse Nup I(7,784 m/ 25,538 fts), Nubtse Shar II (7,776 m/25,512 fts), Nubtse Nup II (7,742 m/ 25,400 fts), Nuptse Shar III (7,695m /25,246 fts).
The Nuptse ridge goes west-northwest until its steep west-face drops down more than 2300m to the enchanting Khumbu-glacier. One of the interesting facts is south-face of Nuptse is 2500m high and 5 kilometers wide. The main summit Nuptse I (7861m/25,791 fts ) was first summited by a British expedition team of Dennis Davis and Tashi Sherpa from north-ridge on May 16, 1961.
Nuptse Expedition is extremely dangerous due to loose snow with a lot of hollows, and there are also weakly attached cornices of snow. This creates many barriers to climbing, yet is not sturdy enough for safe climbing.
Trek Nepal Himalayas team follow the normal route to Lothse and Nuptse. The Nubtse/ Nuptse Expedition commences from Lukla 2850 approx. after a scenic flight from Kathmandu. 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. So, you should follow the instruction of Climbing guides and Sherpa. The Spring season (March to May ) and the autumn season (September to November ) is considered as the best Nuptse expedition seasons.

Expedition -Equipment List:
I was pleased with Trek Nepal Himalayas from a price and quality of service standpoint. The trek is a challenge and a responsible and knowledgeable guide is essential for a safe and inclusive trip. I would use them again.
We went on a short tour to Bhutan and wow what an amazing place! It is so beautiful with its mountain regions and traditional culture. Visiting Tigers Nest monetarist was definitely the highlight of the Bhutan trip. We later returned to Kathmandu and made our way to Pokhara where we took off for the Annapurna Base Camp trek. This was my first time trekking and my fitness level is not the best but Badri and the boys (the sherpa's) were great at catering the trip to our needs. All timings along the way were perfect and we all got to ABC and back without a hitch. Badri and the boys made us feel like we were part of their family and were all smiles and fun. We all played cards together of a night where they taught us to play Dumbal and we taught them Uno. They went above and beyond to cater for us and were watching us like hawks for signs altitude sickness as we got closer to the top. All guest houses that we stayed out were pleasant and all had hot showers. Badri was well respected by the locals along the way and we were welcomed everywhere we went. I actually felt like a bit of a VIP on the mountain when we were trekking with Badri!
I really loved my experience in Nepal and all thanks to Trek Nepal Himalayas. I'm going to miss these guys and can't wait to go back!
I recently spent three and a half weeks holidaying in Nepal with Trek Nepal Himalayas. My partner and I arrived a few days early from the organised tour and Badri from Trek Nepal Himalayas was very accommodating to us by organising our extra accommodation, picking us up from the airport, and organised an extra day tour for us to Nagarkot which was really nice. They also arranged for us to visit the old palace (now a museum) and the Garden of dreams. After the rest of the group arrived we did some sight seeing around Kathmandu visiting the monkey temple, durbar square, the Boudhanath temple and the crematorium.
Our guide Nawin and and other guides arranged throughout the tour were all very knowledgeable of the history of each place that we visited and gave good commentary along the way. Next we went on a day trip to Badri's village. In organising this tour, our group wanted to help out after the earthquake. It turned out Badri's village was badly damaged by the quake and the school was destroyed.
When planing this trip we arranged with Badri for him to take us out to his village so we could make donations of stationary, toys and sporting goods to the school. The village was well off the beaten track and it was a unique opportunity to visit an area that tourists generally don't get to see. The scenery along the way was magic and the drive was quite an adventure. When we arrived the whole village was out to give us a warm friendly welcome with marigold flower necklaces and we each received a blessing. The kids were so excited to see us and were over the moon to receive our donations of stationary, sporting goods and toys.I t was a truly beautiful experience and these memories will stay in my heart forever. This went so well that Badri is now putting together optional side tours for future tour groups to visit his village and villages like his for tourists to make donations to the local schools. I highly recommend you do this as it is such a feel good moment and the emotional joy of it all will is so overwhelming it will make you teary.
A group of us trekked to Everest Base Camp with Trek Nepal Himalayas recently. It was a great trip that was full of memorable moments and amazing views. Our guide Badri was very patient with each of us. He was knowledgeable, encouraging, accommodating and helpful. He not only provided excellent guide services and made sure the group had a safe trip, but also took care of his porter team. Our trip wouldn’t be this successful without the encouragement and support from Badri and the assistant guide Karan. During the time we stayed in Kathmandu, Badri and his staff offered great assistance to ensure we had a great time. If you are planning to visit Nepal, I highly recommend Trek Nepal Himalayas.
Three weeks with Trek Nepal Himalayas was an incredible experience. Our adventure included a day tour of Kathmandu, Everest flight with champagne at sunrise, flights to Bhutan with a few days touring around there. Our highlight in Bhutan was the climb to Tiger's Nest monastery and the amazing views from there.
Ten days trekking to Annapurna Base camp was wonderful. Our guide Badri made sure all our needs were met along the way. Nawin, our first in charge was very accommodating as well as the other 3 porters who lugged our stuff so we only had to carry a day pack.
Sunrise at Poon Hill was a must as well as putting up prayer flags at sunrise at the summit of our trip, Annapurna base camp. Just fab.
Inspirational, amazing and a humbling experience.
I would go back again and would make sure that these knowledgeable people were by my side for my next adventure.
