The third highest peak of the world Mount Kanchanjunga is situated at an elevation of 8586 meters above the sea level. It is the second highest peak of Nepal after Mount Everest. A British team conquered this peak having four summits for the first time in 1956. Some people even classify it as a separate 8000m peak.
A British botanist J.D. Hooker, who visited the area twice in 1848 and in1849, is the first westerner to explore Kanchanjunga. Exploration of the peak from the Sikkim side was continued by the British explorers mapping and photographing until 1899. In that very year a team led by Douglas Fresh Field made a circuit of Kanchanjunga and produced its map which is still regarded as one of the most authentic maps of the region.
Conquering this peak continued mostly from the Sikkim side, starting from Darjeeling in British India. Dr. A.M Kellas, is one of the major contributors to Western knowledge about the region who later died in Tibet during the approach of the 1921 Everest expedition. In 1929, 1930 and again in 1931 German Expedition attempted to conquer this peak but failed. Even after the restriction on Sikkin entrance, Nepal entrance was open, a team led by Dr. Charl as Evans approached the peak in 1955 via the Yalung Glacier.
The Japanese then accepted the challenge and approached the peak in 1967, 1973 and 1974. A German Expedition climbed Yalung Kang in 1975 when they climbed Yalung Kang, and an Indian army team was successful to reach the main peak of mount Kanchanjunga.
