Kanchenjunga, the third highest peak in the world with its majestic height-8586m. is mystery in itself. There are different versions of different scholars on its name. It is said that it is derived from Sanskrit word 'Kancan Jangha' meaning "golden thigh". Majority of the people believe that its name is derived from Tibetan language 'Kang-Chen-doz-nga' which is pronounced more or less as Kanchenjunga.
