Kanchenjunga Mountain, Darjeeling

4.6
#1 of 41 in Nature in West Bengal
Mountain Nature / Park
Admire Kanchenjunga Mountain, the third-highest peak in the world and a focal point of the Himalayas. Straddling the border with Nepal, the mountain has an elevation of 8,586 m (28,169 ft) and can be viewed from a number of locations across the local area, its snowy summit cutting into the sky. Note that permission to access the mountain from India remains nearly impossible. Serious mountain climbers traditionally approach the giant from the Nepalese side (this is for experts only--20 percent of those attempting to reach the peak have died trying). Make Kanchenjunga Mountain a centerpiece of your Darjeeling vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Darjeeling holiday planner.

Where to stay in Darjeeling

A popular hillside resort town with plenty of attractions old, new, natural, and manmade, Darjeeling has a good number of accommodations to cater to the long list of visitors. Hotels and lodges across the main urban area provide the most popular options in town, with some newly built accommodations sitting alongside particularly well-maintained colonial-era properties. Hostels can be found on the side streets in the main urban area, while further out of town sit a number of eco-lodges and old plantation houses, now open as hotels or rental cottages.
