    Mount Kanchanjunga; Standing at 8586m Kanchanjunga is the third highest peak in the world and the second highest in Nepal. It was first climbed by a British team in 1956. The peak consists of four summits. The west summit, Yalung Kang, 8420m high, and some people classify it as a separate 8000m peak. Kanchanjunga (8586m) range lies in the extreme north-west of Nepal. which is aligned north to south along the Nepal-Sikkim border.The old hill resort of Darjeeling made it one of the better known mountains during the initial phase of Himalayan exploration. 

The name “Kanchenjunga” is delivered from the Tibetan word  'Kanchen' and 'Dzonga'  translated means "The Five Treasures of the Great Snows", as it contains five peaks, Kanchenjunga I (8586m), Kanchenjunga West (8505m), Kanchenjunga South (8494m) and Kangbachen (7903m).  The treasures represent the five repositories of God, which are gold, silver, gems, grain, and holy books

Trekking route of Kanchenjunga is drained by Tamur River that meets Arun below Mulghat. The river is fed by numerous glaciers. The north glaciers  of the main peaks are clockwise Nupchu, Lhonak, Chichima, Gimsung, Pyramid, Kanchenjunga and Ramtang. West and south of the main peak are Kumbhakarna (Jannu), Yamatari and Yalung glaciers. The Kanchangunga area has a profusion of high summits of which three are above 8,000m.
