Nuptse

Nuptse is a 7,861 metres (25,791 ft) mountain in the Himalayas range, in Nepal.[1] It not considered an independent peak but as a part of Lhotse.[2] If it was, however, it would be the 20th highest mountain in the world. It is a very dangerous mountain to climb.[3] The first people to reach the top were Dennis Davis and Sherpa Tashi, in 1961.[4]
