Kanchanjunga 8586 m range in the extreme north-west of Nepal is aligned north to south along the Nepal-Sikkim border. Thus, Kanchenjunga, the world's third highest peak is the most southerly of the major Himalayan peaks and its proximity to the old hill resort of Darjeeling made it one of the better known mountains during the initial phase of Himalayan exploration.

Trekking route of Kanchenjunga is drained by Tamur River that meets Arun below Mulghat. The river is fed by numerous glaciers. The glaciers north of the main peak are clockwise Nupchu, Lhonak, Chichima, Gimsung, Pyramid, Kanchenjunga and Ramtang. West and south of the main peak are Kumbhakarna (Jannu), Yamatari and Yalung glaciers. The Kanchangunga area has a profusion of high summits of which three are above 8,000 m. & 11 above 7,000 m

Kangbachen 4038 m in Ghunsa valley and Walungchung 3,200 m in Tamur valley are the highest settlements in the area. The latter was an important trading centre between Darjeeling and across Tipta La in Tibet. Access to Kanchenjunga area is road link to Basantapur or through Taplejung bazaar that has direct air link with Biratnagar. There is also a fair weather road from Ilam and traverses Milke Danda. The area is rich with vegetation, particularly variety of rhododendrons.

FAQs

Mount Kanchenjunga Expedition Climbing is the best in Autumn September to November would be best suitable time for Kanchenjunga Expedition and Second preferable Season will be spring end of March to till end of May best choice in two different seasons in doing  an adventure of Kanchenjunga expedition in the eastern part of Nepal. 
Mr. Peter is the first successful climber from Himalayan Magic Treks we should tell you the truth for the any expedition in the mountains you must feel good and positive way also another point you should have enough time to climbing during expedition period because of Bad weather, insufficient crew there will be a part of unsuccessful point so do not look cheaper organization and short period of time could be happen anything in the mountains so you must be prepared every step of adventure our team will lead to complete your dream come true.

Mount Kanchenjunga Expedition in winter (December to February)
Winter is definitely for the more experienced trekker. The weather is unpredictable, and trails can change in hours due to snow. The sky will most likely be clear, and the scenery changes daily as snow drifts in.  On the positive side, fewer trekkers will be on the trail and lodges.  But if this is for you, let’s discuss the possibilities as lodges often close for the winter as locals go down to lower altitudes to wait out the cold so honestly inform you everyone winter is impossible for high mountains above 7000 meters climb because of high risk so choose the best time of the year Autumn for Kanchenjunga Expedition recommendable.
