The third-highest mountain in the world, in the Himalayas, on the border between Nepal and Sikkim (in India). The main peak is between 8586 and 8597 m high depending on which source you consult, and was first climbed on 25 May 1955 by a British team consisting of G. Band, J. Brown, N. Hardie, and T. Streather.

It is also (I suspect more accurately) known as Kangchenjunga.

The second peak, Yalung Kang Kangchenjunga West, is 8502 m high; the South Peak is 8488 m high; and the Middle Peak is 8475 m high.
