Mount Kangchenjunga; Standing at 8586 m Kanchanjunga is the third highest peak in the world and the second-highest in Nepal. A British team first climbed it in 1956. The peak consists of four summits. The west summit, Yalung Kang, is 8420m high, and some people classify it as a separate 8000m peak. Kangchenjunga (8586m) range lies in the extreme northwest 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.
