the world's third highest mountain

and neighbouring Peaks

in the Nepal Himalaya

- British climbers George Band and Joe Brown reached the 28,160ft summit in 1955.

- Climbers consider Kangchenjunga one of the most difficult ascents among the world’s 14 highest peaks.

- Only 195 people have climbed Mount Kangchenjunga, according to the Nepal Mountaineering Association.

- Kangchenjunga has a reputation for being a difficult mountain and normally takes more than three months to tackle ( climbing Mount Everest – the world’s highest mountain at 29,035 feet – normally takes two months ).

- Scaling Kangchenjunga involves a much longer approach hike and the mountain is prone to bad weather.

- Before the true height of Everest was established in the mid-1800s, Kangchenjunga, on the Nepal-India border, was thought to be the world’s highest mountain.
