On an adventure journey at Lumba Sumba pass, you can hike through the Kanchenjunga Conservation Area (KCA), explore traditional farming practices, and see different birds and wildlife species. It includes the endangered snow leopard, and red panda, and experience with various ethnic groups. They are Limbu, Sherpas, Rai, Gurung, Magar, Newar, and Tamang in the most eastern Himalayas of Nepal.

Furthermore, there are a number of high mountain lakes in Oangchung Gola. Barun Valley is a part of the huge international protected area under an agreement between China and Nepal. Lumba Sumba pass trekking is listed under the Great Himalayan Trail (GHT) where you can explore Makalu Base Camp and Kanchenjunga base camp trek in a single trip.

Moreover, Lumba Sumba pass trip is bordered by the Arun River in the east and the Sagarmatha National Park in the west. Barun Valley is a wildlife sanctuary for wild animals such as wolves, Monkeys, lynxes, foxes, and the elusive snow leopard.

Our descent into the pine and rhododendron forest from the Barun Valley takes us past the lower Barun glacier and into the Makalu basin. As the Lumba Sumba is an adventure hiking route, Trekkers can plan to hike either in the spring season or in the autumn season. Because the winter hike at Lumba Sumba pass stays ice and snowfall so it could be more technically difficult.

Question: What kind of accommodation can I expect on Lumba Sumba pass trekking?

Answer: We provide you tourist standard accommodation in Kathmandu and available local guest house accommodation during the trekking route. We do also provide tented accommodation while above Gunsa to the base camp section.

Question: How do I get drinking water on treks?

Answer: As you go over Lumba Sumba adventure hikes, we provide aqua tablets to purify the normal water. Normal water is available often at every village’s local tap or on the mountainside along the journey. Ask your guide every morning and then get updates about drinking water stations.

Question: Can I charge my digital camera or other batteries on my trip?

Answer: There are very few charging stations along the route. But you often get more chances to charge a battery. We recommend you bring an extra pair in case. Remember to bring your adapters! An extra battery will be recommended.

Question: Are there any communication facilities on the short Lumba Sumba pass camping trek?

Answer: In the Lumba Sumba trekking route you can often get telephone service. So buy a local Sim Card to get a telephone and 3G internet service at a cheap price.

Question: Can I use credit cards?

Answer: No! You need to have cash Nepali rupees because credit cards work only in the bigger city areas.

Question: What necessary documents do I need to submit to obtain the Lumba Sumba pass trek permit?

Answer: Hike to Kanchenjunga is listed under the restricted area trek in Nepal, so you won’t get the permit yourself directly. You need a local trek operator agency like Gokyo Treks & Expedition. We are a registered travel trek agency under the law of the Nepal Government and pay all back taxes regularly. Moreover, the following documents are required to obtain the Kanchenjunga Trek permit.

  • Guest must be in Nepal, original passport with a valid visa of Nepal.
  • Required a group of at least 2 people in a team as a minimum.
  • Clearly written daily travel itinerary along with documents.
  • Minimum of 3 weeks of valid visa
  • Latest photos (only required for online submission) – You can email them to your trekking agency.

Question: When should I book my trip and what are the payment terms?

Answer: Because our trips book up months in advance, we recommend booking early to avoid any kind of misunderstanding. We will, of course, make every effort to accommodate last-minute bookings.

And regarding the deposit, we prefer a 25 % advance deposit of the total price of the trip in order to confirm your reservation before you arrive in Nepal. And the rest of the payment can be made after your arrival in Nepal.

Question: Who will carry my luggage on express Lumba Sumba pass Trek?

Question: Is there a direct flight from Kathmandu – Taplejung – Kathmandu?

Answer: Considering the pressure of mass tourists to visit Nepal, nowadays Sita Air launched a direct flight from Kathmandu to Taplejung twice a week. It’s good news for Kanchenjunga base camp trekkers to get closer to the conservation area (kca). Not only exploring Taplejung provides the chance to make some enchanting memories for visitors, and tour the local landmarks. There was also operating a direct flight from Kathmandu to Suketar Airport – Taplejung some months before. But it was mainly focused on the tourist flow season. Other than that you need to fly Bhadrapur from Kathmandu and travel to Taplejung by bus or private jeep.

Question: Can I issue the permit in advance, before arriving in Nepal?

Answer: Only a few agencies like Gokyo Treks & Expedition can do it. An original passport with a valid visa to Nepal is required to issue the permit. We can issue your permit in advance if you can send us your flight details. We can request an immigration officer to give you a valid visa after your arrival which has been working so far.

Question: How long does it take to issue the permit?

Answer: It normally takes 1 to 2 hours to issue the permit during the peak season.

Question: How much distance do I walk each day?

Answer: When walking in the mountains, the distance you cover each day can vary greatly due to gradient, terrain, and altitude. As such it is very hard to give specific distances for each day, however, you have to be prepared to walk for roughly about 5 hours each day.

Question: Do I need hiking poles?

Answer: It is better to hike with outdoor light poles. Learn how to use trekking poles for balance and stability, whether on the sidewalk or on trails. Walking poles can help prevent slips and falls. They are just recommended but not compulsory.

Question: Is it possible to rent a guide? how to hire a local trek guide?

Answer: We arrange a full board package trip but we don’t sell guides and porters only for this adventure Lumba Sumba pass trek route.

Question: How much additional money do I need per day?

Answer: You can allocate US$ 08 to 10 for a lunch/dinner in Kathmandu and it depends on your spending habits. US$ 7 to 10 US$ each day will be enough to buy bottles of water, chocolates, tea coffee, and some drinks while you are on your trek.

The best Annapurna Circuit Trek

Rated 5.0 out of 5
June 17, 2016

This past May (2016) I completed the Annapurna Circuit in 15 days, largely thanks to the guiding services provided by Gokyo Treks and Expedition. At the start of my trip, I had planned to hike Manaslu but due to an illness with my trekking partner, I had to change plans last minute. Fortunately, Ammar (owner of Gokyo) was able to help me and provide info, which ultimately led to me choosing Annapurna. During my 2 days in Kathmandu, Ammar and his family also provided a very nice and convenient homestay while helping me prepare for my trek (buying jackets, etc.).

The trek itself was everything I had imagined and more – my guide, Kamal (KC) was helpful and knowledgeable. He knew the best routes to take and provided me assurance, help, and motivation when necessary (i.e. when I had some stomach issues). KC was also more than just a guide – by the end, he became a friend. He’s somebody I felt very comfortable around, and kept things interesting. I’d highly recommend not only Gokyo Treks but also KC as a guide. Additionally, the prices offered by Gokyo were the best I could find when compared to several other agencies. Finally, the services Gokyo provides to the community (schools, tutoring, etc) made it a no-brainer to choose them. Hopefully, this review will help others make their decision – having an experienced guide made everything so much easier (knowing what lodging, food places, etc.)

Annapurna Circuit Trek Review

Rated 5.0 out of 5
July 29, 2012

I did the Annapurna circuit and had a wonderful time. The circuit is a bit touristic, but still, the nature is phenomenal and in the offseason, it’s really not crowded, in May the weather is still great. I did the tour with a great company which Id like to write about here.

Gokyo Treks & Expeditions are really professional and care a lot about their customers. They can provide you with nearly everything and the prices are really reasonable, especially compared to other trekking agencies. Everyone I met was very friendly and welcoming and I always had a good feeling traveling with Gokyo Treks. I did the Annapurna circuit with one guide and had an excellent experience, so from my point, I can just give a strong recommendation.
