Kanchanjunga to Makalu via Lumba Sunba Pass

This section connects the Kanchenjunga Section with the Makalu Barun Section, and is also called the Lumbasumba Trek, as you have to cross the Lumbasumba pass (5159 m). This is unexplored, high altitude trekking and thus for the experienced. The terrain is harsh and trails are not always in a good condition. The crossing of the Lumbasumba pass of 5159 m can be quite hard when there is snow (which is most of the time). The remoteness, spectacular landscapes and amazing views of the Himalayas make this trek however an amazing and unforgettable experience.

Because of the differences in altitude, the scenery is incredibly varied; from agricultural fields, to beautiful lush forests to spectacular high altitude landscapes. Lucky trekkers can spot the endangered snow leopard, red panda, the vulnerable Himalayan black bear, clouded leopard or Assamese macaque.

The itinerary described below connects with the Upper GHT just before Olangchun Gola (3191 m), and goes westwards from there. It is possible to combine this trek with the trek to Kanchenjunga Base Camp (5143 m). In this case, you go first north to Ghunsa and the Kanchenjunga Base Camp, then return to Ghunsa and go westwards from there. For a day by day itinerary up to the Kanchenjunga Base Camp, see the Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek.
