The third highest mountain in the world, Kanchenjunga lies in the eastern Himalaya of Nepal on the border of Nepal and Sikkim. The main part of this mountain is an enormous mass with many different peaks surrounding it which arise from its narrow icy ridges. So, there are in fact four summits namely Main Summit, Middle Summit, South Summit & Yalung Kang or West Summit. The first successful climb was in 1955 by a British Expedition team. The mountain lies in the Kanchenjunga Conservation Area Project which is funded and run jointly by the World Wildlife Fund and the Government of Nepal. The Kanchenjunga area is a rich home to many rare species of flora and fauna including the red panda.
Three of Kanchenjungha's summit i.e main summit, central summit and south summit lie directly on the border between Nepal and Sikkim, India while the other two peaks lie completely in the Taplejung District of Nepal. The Yalung Kang 8420m also known as West summit is considered by some mountaineers to be a separate summit. The safest route is a climb up the North Face due to the prevailing weather conditions but it is not the easiest. Base camp is at an altitude of 5,180 m which is the start point for the climb.
