According to the MHA circular issued last month, 24 mountain peaks in Sikkim were included in the list of 137 peaks
New order now ensures that Kanchenjunga and Kanchenjunga South (8474m) would not be opened to foreigners for any expedition
Mountaineers who wish to climb the Kanchenjunga can do it from the Nepal side without hurting religious sentiments
