Kanchenjunga Mountain, Darjeeling

(4.7/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
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.
