Create an itinerary including Kangchenjunga
Admire Kangchenjunga, 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). To visit Kangchenjunga on your holiday in Darjeeling, and find out what else Darjeeling has to offer, use our Darjeeling.

  • The best thing when you're in Darjeeling is the view of Kanchenjunga mountains which is clearly visible even from the mall road on a clear and sunny day.

  • Stunning view from Darjeeling. Takes your breath away. I wasn’t that fussed on seeing it, having seen Everest from a plane but OMG - the highlight of my trip and the decade. Breathtaking, sublime...
