Lumbasumba Pass Trekking

Lumbasumba pass (5177m) lies between Kanchenjunga and Makalu region and the route passes through Kanchenjunga Conservation Area and Makalu Barun National Park. It can be done as a trek in itself or can be added to either the Makalu or the Kanchenjunga trek as an alternative tour option. The route across Lumbasumba pass is also part of the Great Himalaya Trail itinerary.
Originally, the pass was used by locals to access the yak kharkas (pastures) on either side of the pass.
If not added to the Makalu or Kanchenjunga trek, we suggest to start from Taplejung and end in Tumlingtar. In the beginning we will be passing a number of villages, partially along the old trade routes to Tibet, giving an insight into the lifestyle of the different local communities like Limbu, Sherpa, Rai, Gurung, Magar and others. The Olangchungola for example, a people of Tibetan origin, speak their own language and have retained a Tibetan way of life. We can also visit Deki chholing gumba, a 465 year old monastery on the way. With the route running through two national parks, we have the opportunity to observe the diverse flora and fauna. The endangered and rarely seen snow leopard and red panda are found in this region. Adding to the natural beauty of the area are spectacular views of Chamlang Himal, Makalu and the Kanchenjunga range including Janu Himal, Kangbachen Himal, Chulima Himal and many other peaks.
