Mt. Kanchenjunga at 8,586 m (28,169 ft) is the third highest mountain in the world. Located east of Everest, it sits just inside of Nepal next to Sikkim of India. 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. Just to the south is Kanchanjanga (South) that beats out its middle sister by 3 meters (8,476 m/27,808 ft.)

A fourth peak, Yalung Kang (elev. 8,505/27,903 ft.) is considered the fourth peak of Kanchanjanga range, which sits entirely in Nepal to the east. The region is surrounded by high mountain glaciers.

Mt. Kanchenjunga was first climbed in 1955. It is a popular climb with its proximity to Sikkim and northeastern India. It offers great views in all directions as the various peaks of the Kanchanjanga Himal (mountain range) highlight the raw beauty of the Himalayas.
