The first westerner to explore Kanchenjunga was a British botanist J.D. Hooker, who visited the area twice in 1848 and 1849. Exploration from the Sikkim side of the peak was continued by the British explorers mapping and photographing until 1899. In that year a party led by Douglas Fresh Field made a circuit of Kanchenjunga and produced what is still one of the most authentic maps of the region.
Exploration continued, mostly from the Sikkim side, starting from Darjeeling in British India. One of the major contributors to Western knowledge about the region was Dr. A.M Kellas, who later died in Tibet during the approach of the 1921 Everest expedition. German expeditions attempted on several occasion to the peak like 1929, 1930 and again in 1931, but all failed .When the Sikkim entrance was closed, Nepal entrance was still open, a team in 1955 led by Dr. Charl as Evans approached the peak via the Yalung Glacier.
The Japanese then took up the challenge and mounted expeditions in 1967, 1973 and 1974. When they had climbed Yalung Kang, a German Expedition climbed Yalung Kang in 1975, and an Indian army team also mounted the second successful expeditions to the main peak of mount Kanchenjunga.
