Phungi must be the peak behind. In the foreground, almost looking like it's part of one long arete, is Naike peak.

I might be mistaken, but I can almost believe you can see a team summiting out on Naike! If you view full scale, you can see the difference between Naike and Phungi, and if you look at the summit area of Naike it looks like two climbers on the lower part of the steep couloir just below the summit, one on the steep face of the couloir, and two or three more climbers on the summit plateau/ridge.

Thanks for posting,

Re: Beautiful...

No, the summit in this image is Phungi and not Naike. This is a part of the westridge of Manaslu. Naike peak is a side peak to the northridge of Manaslu. The spots on top are no climers but rocks. I can say that, because I have taken some more images at a time of 15 mins and the spots didn't move during different images.
This picture helps showing Manaslu and the westridge:
And this one shows Naike:
And this one shows Naike as part of the Manaslu northridge:
The pictures of Naike are taken from Samdopeak, the Phungi image was taken at Bimthang.
