[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is Nuptse - the five-summit 7864m mountain in Khumbu region of Nepal Himalaya. Until recently only the Main and West summits were climbed. In November 2003 Valery Babanov and Yuri Koshelenko first summited Nuptse East.

The picture was taken from the moraine of Khumbu glacier near the Pyramid - Italian research center not far from Lobuche.
