Kanchenjunga is located far east of Nepal. And this is the third highest mountain in the world. Kanchenjunga is a huge mountain mass, and many satellite peaks rise from its narrow icy ridges. So, this peak is located on the border of Nepal and Sikkim, just 46 miles northwest of Darjeeling. It is most easterly of the great 8,000-meter peaks of the Himalayas. It is a massif, complex, and culminates in three summits above 8,000m. Yalung Khang 8,505m and main summit 8,586m. Middle summit 8,482 and south summit 8,473m. Pangpema (4800m) is the base camp for Kanchenjunga expedition. Moreover, during the period you will be rewarded with gorgeous views of Everest, Lhotse, Makalu & Kanchanjunga one of the world’s five highest mountains.

There are three seasons for mountaineering in Nepal. The permission season from April to early June was once the only season during which expeditions climbed major peaks. 

Now the autumn or post-monsoon season of September and October is a period of many successful expeditions. In 1979 the ministry of tourism established a season for winter mountaineering. It is bitterly cold at high elevations from November to February. But recent advances in equipment technology have allowed several teams to accomplish what was thought before to be impossible a winter ascent of a Himalayan peak. Climbing during the monsoon, from June to August, is not practical from the Nepal side. Although, the north face of Everest climbs in august.
