High Altitude Drama

Despite what the countless books on Himalayan mountaineering would make you believe, man need not be involved for “high altitude drama” to occur. Here, Nuptse (7861 m) puts on a grand act of its own as the summit snows are being blown up and over the infamous south face. Nuptse from near Inja Tsho, Khumbu, Nepal.
