Located on the border of Nepal and India, Kangchenjunga is the third highest mountain in the world at an altitude of 8,598 metres. For a long time the huge mountain resisted the first ascent; in the years 1905, 1929, 1931, 1932-39 all attempts to conquer the mountain failed, due to environmental conditions such as avalanches and storms.
It was not until May 25th 1955 George Brand and Joe Brown, two British mountaineers, succeeded in climbing the 8,598 metres, or almost all of them. As a mark of respect for the faith of the inhabitants of the Indian state of Sikkim, who worship the mountain, they stopped short of the summit.
Lilium nepalense is a native of the southern slopes of the Himalaya, from Bhutan through Nepal to Uttarakhand. It can be found growing on wet forest borders at 1,200 to 3,000 m (3,900 to 9,800 ft). It grows up to about 1 m high, usually less. The bulbs are stoloniferous, and for newly planted bulbs, the shoot will often come up some distance from the planting spot. Flowers are few, often solitary, pendant, coloured pale green with a purple throat. The flowers are generally unscented during daylight hours and heavily scented after dark.
