Lumba Sumba Pass Trek is a trekking expedition that walks all travelers through two regions known for their solitude and wilderness – Kanchenjunga and Makalu. Starting out from the far north-eastern Kanchenjunga region, the trek enters the Makalu region, crossing the Lumba Sumba Pass at an altitude of 5,177 meters from sea level. Camping in the Himalayan wilderness comes as an exciting adventure to many since the trail passes through areas without human settlements for a number of days.

En route, the views of the mighty summits of Mt Kanchenjunga (8,586 m), third-highest on the altitude scale, and Mt Makalu (8,485 m) fifth on the scale are certainly major attractions. Lumba Sumba Pass Trek, however, offers a lot more. The pristine wilderness sees dense forests and is home to many wild species. The ones a traveler is likely to encounter are the blue sheep, pica, and many bird species. The ones to look out for are the rare Red Panda and Snow Leopard. 

Fed by glaciers, Arun and Tamor River Systems are yet other attractions. Their tributaries and waterfalls en route simply add to the adventure. The remote villages, people, and their ways are certainly no less engaging.

The trail for the Lumba Sumba Pass Trek stretches about 200 kilometers from start to finish and requires 22 days of walking. The average is 5-6 hours of walk each day.
