" No part of the snowy Himalaya eastward of the north-east extremity of the British possessions had been visited since Turner's embassy to Tibet in 1789; and hence it was highly important to explore scientifically a part the chain...but it was not then known that Kinchinjunga, the loftiest known mountain on the globe, was situated on my route, and formed the principal feature in the physical geography of Sikkim...In the early morning the transparency of the atmosphere renders this view one of astonishing grandeur. Kinchinjunga bore nearly due north, a dazzling mass of snowy peak, intersected by blue glaciers which gleamed in the slanting rays of the rising sun, like aquamarines set in frosted silver. Joseph Dalton Hooker...Himalayan Journals 1854.
