It's summit overlooks deep valleys and wide rivers that sweep past its base. The Tamur River passes to the west while the Teesta River forms its eastern boundary.

Mt. Kanchenjunga actually has three peaks. All three sit on the border with India (Sikkim), Kanchanjanga is the most northern of the peaks. Its two sisters, Kanchanjanga (Center) is 8,473 m/27,798 ft) and is the shortest of the three peaks.
