  • Mt. Kanchenjunga is the third highest mountain in the world situated at an altitude of 8,586 meters (28,169 feet) and stands tall guarding Nepal’s eastern border. Visible in the distant mists from Darjeeling and with access from Sikkim, the history of Kangchenjunga, like that of Everest, goes back far beyond the opening of Nepal. This multi-peaked mountain, four of which are over 8000 meters, was the best documented of all, having been attempted as early as 1905. The third highest mountain is vast; some 13 kilometers (eight miles) in length by eight kilometers (five miles) broad.
