Kumbhakarna is also known as Jannu Mountain(7710m). The name Kumbhakarna was derived from the name of a giant Kumbahakarna who was the younger brother of giant Rawan. It is situated 11km to the west of the summit of Kanchenjunga in Eastern part of Nepal in Kanchenjunga Conservation Area. It is very difficult peak to climb, with a summit pyramid that is steep on all sides.
