The third-highest mountain in the world, Kanchenjunga is an enormous mountain mass with many satellite peaks rising from its narrow icy ridges. Located in the Eastern Nepal the border of Nepal and Sikkim, Kanchenjunga is the most easterly of the 8,000 meter Himalayan peaks and consists of four separate summits - Main Summit, Middle Summit, South Summit & Yalung Kang or West Summit. Kanchenjunga was first summitted in 1955 by a British Expedition team. Nepal is also home to the Kanchenjunga Conservation Area Project run by the World Wildlife Fund and the Nepal Government. The Kanchenjunga sanctuary homes both common and rare species such as Red Panda and other montane animals, birds and plants. India also protects its side of Kanchenjunga under the project of the Kanchenjunga National Park.
Three of the five peaks, the main, central, and south, lie on the border of Nepal and Sikkim, India. Other two peaks lie completely in the Taplejung District of Nepal. The west summit also known as Yalung Kang at 8420m itself can qualify as a separate summit according to some mountaineers. Climbing the North Face is considered to be safest, but not the easiest. The expedition to Kanchenjunga begins from the base camp situated in the panoramic meadows at 5,180 m.
