It was first successfully conquered by a British team in 1956. The west summit, Yalung Kang, 8420m high, and some people also classify it as a separate 8000m summit.
The first westerner to explore this amazing peak Kanchanjunga was a British botanist J.D. Hooker. He visited the area twice in 1848 and in 1849. Until 1899, Expedition from the Sikkim side of the peak was continued by the British explorers mapping and photographing the peak. In that year a party led by Douglas Fresh Field made a whole circuit of Kanchanjunga in that very year. Later they produced a map of Kanchanjunga region which is considered to be the most authentic maps in the present days as well.

And become successful in 1975. At the same time German Expedition also climbed Yalung Kang. An Indian army team also made the successful expedition to this peak.
