The agency said on its website that Russian cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko's snap from the International Space Station, 230 miles above Earth, showed Everest lightly dusted with snow.
The picture spread rapidly via Twitter and was picked up by media around the world.
But Nepalis voiced their suspicions on social media. Journalist Kunda Dixit, an authority on the Himalayas, tweeted: "Sorry guys, but the tall peak with the shadow in the middle is not Mt Everest."
NASA confirmed on Thursday that it had made a mistake and removed the picture from its website.
"It is not Everest. It is Saser Muztagh, in the Karakoram Range of the Kashmir region of India," a spokesman admitted in an email to AFP.
