Kanchenjunga and Lumba Sumba Pass Trekking 22 Days

popular

Kanchenjunga and Lumba Sumba Pass trekking is an adventure on remote and hidden areas of far Eastern Himalaya with glorious views. The Kanchenjunga and Lumba Samba trekking takes you around nearly forgotten areas of far eastern corners of Nepal’s Himalayan range with the world 3rd highest Mt. Kanchenjunga, the 5th Mt. Makalu and Kumbakarna. Kanchenjunga and Lumba Sumba Pass trekking lie beyond Kanchenjunga and Makalu mountain range in the hidden corners of Holung and Walungchung Gola areas on the ancient trade route of Nepal and Tibet where the caravan of good exchange still exists.

The adventure leads you far and away from the main trekking route of Kanchenjunga, heading due north beyond warm paddy fields and within an enchanting mist-filled forest of lovely tall rhododendron, magnolia, pines, oaks and fir tree lines. The high rolling green hills of this trekking region remain in full bloom, in springtimes of March to May, making the atmosphere the best time to visit. This trekking through the remote and isolated countryside north of Kanchenjunga to Holung and Walunchung Gola also includes the high and scenic Lumba-Sumba-La pass at 5,160 metres.

Kanchenjunga trekking package is valid for 2022 and 2023

Kanchenjunga and Lumba Sumba Pass trekking begin with a short flight to Bhadrapur and a beautiful drive to Illam, the low land of Nepal, from where the journey leads to high scenic hills to start our walk from the Taplejung area. The walking is always of great interest since it allows visiting rural farm villages of immense mix culture of Hindu and Buddhism and entering into the lovely forest to mountain villages of Holung Walunchun-Gola, unexplored areas by other main flow of trekkers. The Holung village falls on the old Trans Himalayan Salt Trade Route of Eastern Nepal to Tibet, an impressive village for a rest day. From Holung, the trekking leads to cross over Lumba Sumba La Pass to reach back into low, warm areas of paddy farm and villages.

This trekking around lovely hill villages on an almost forgotten cultural trail by other travellers ends at Num village. From Num, a drive takes you around the warm low country of Arun valley at Tumlingtar to catch a short scenic flight back to Kathmandu, after a beautiful experience and adventure on Kanchenjunga and Lumba Sumba Pass trekking.

Seasons

Nepal has four primary seasons:
1. Winter: December–February
2. Spring: March-May
3. Summer: June–August
4. Autumn: September – November

General Weather:
The best season to Travel Nepal is from mid-September to mid-December or from the end of February to the end of May. June to August are rainy months for Nepal and December to February are winter months, but each season has its richness.

During the summer month, the jungles will be lush to the rain forest, and the rivers will swell, the lowlands or the fields of the hills will be full of rice and other crops. During summer month Japanese tourists and from other countries, loving the high Himalaya flower, comes to sight flowers. And most of the tourist willing to travel to Tibet comes from May to mid-October. And we also have a lot of Spanish tourists touring and trekking in Nepal in these months.

During summer months the parts of Terai may see with flood and travelling during these months is hot and temperature may reach around 38 degrees, but during this time the Indian tourists visit Nepal to escape the heat in their lowlands.

During winter months the part of Terai will be misty and may find under winter mist until late morning (11 a.m.). In this season, the southern lowlands of the country get beautifully decorated with mustard flowers and Papaya in ripe.

The end of February to mid-May is the best time for fauna and flora both in the mountains and in Terai. During this time, one may find a lot of rhododendron flower, magnolia, wild orchids, and birdlife. The weather mostly remains fine in all parts of Nepal.

January February is winter, and from the end of January to February, the high passes in the mountain valley will be in the snow. During this time, the temperature around the Everest Base camp will be -17 to -30 degrees (after sunset to before sunrise). During day time will be around 5 to 11 degree and more if sunny. Nepal is a sunny country, so the temperature, even full winter, is much better than some European countries and in America and in Canada. Many of them from those countries travel to Nepal to escape their cold weather and to enjoy the sunny Himalaya Panorama.

NOTE
The best month to take this itinerary is from the first week of March to the end of May and from the first week of October to mid-November. However, this area can be trekked in summer season and find the region in a beautiful setting of nature.


Spring season:
March to May is the second-best trekking season in Nepal with long daylight period. The mid-hill starting from 1,400 to 3,800 metres is generally beautiful with a lot of Rhododendron flowers, magnolia and full of wild orchids. It is also the best time to enjoy the bird and wildlife in all parts of Nepal and famously in its nature reserves such as Chitwan and Bardia National Parks. It is also the primary mountaineering season, and more than 600 climbers reach to Everest Basecamp targeting the summit of Everest. Bright days remain hazy and may expect some thunders and light rains in the lowland and light hailing all around the country. The temperature remains -5 at Everest Basecamp to 32 degrees in the Terai belt.

Summer season:
June to August is monsoon season of Nepal, the most important natural phenomena to recharge the mountains, hills to terrains, feeding with a tremendous amount of snow and rainwater. The primary rainy months are July and August and may expect daily rains after a late afternoon with heavy rains in the night. In this season of the year, the forest turns to lush rain forests; rivers get swelled to its full to destructive strength. The southern lowland of the country, known as Terai, may suffer from the flood. Low land to hill terraces gets attractive with full of crops, and the high land valley gets carpeted with colourful flowers and beautiful streams. During these months, from on May, people travelling to Tibet including Mount Kailash from Nepal flock to its capital Kathmandu. Indian tourist and others living in the hot-lowlands enjoy travelling to Nepal to escape the heat in their parts. Japanese and many other tourists arrive in these months to sight rare flowers and butterflies of the Himalayas. Summertime is also the best time to trek in the areas of Mugu, Upper Dolpo, Lower Dolpo, Manaslu and Tsum Valley, Naar-Phu and Upper Mustang regions. In this time of the year falls several important festivals such as Janai Purnima, Gaijatra, Gaura Parba, Shree Krishna Janmasthami, Teej, Rishi Panchami, Dumjee, Indra Jatra, Sakadawa, and Tiji etc. The temperature remains 17 to 35 degrees, and the average temperature remains 22 degrees.

Autumns season:
September to November is the most stable weather season in Nepal, characterised by crystal clear blue skies and very little precipitation. Autumn is the most travelled season to Nepal, especially to enjoy the crystal-clear mountain sceneries. Autumn season is a prosperous time; the country collects all its corps. During autumn/fall, several important festivals such as Dashain, Tihar, and mask dance festivals such as Manirimdu in Chiwang monastery and Tengboche monastery of Everest Region. The temperature starts dropping from mid-October and remains 0 to 22 degrees.

Winter season:
December to February is generally the coldest months, temperature ranging minimum 0 to -2 degree in Kathmandu (after sunset to before sunrise) to -17 to -30 degrees at Everest Basecamp (after sunset to before sunrise), the winter's bitterest cold with short daylight period. Above 1,500 metres the day remain sunny and night sky remain crystal clear enabling to count stars. The southern lowland of the country, known as Terai, and other lowland deep valleys remains under a misty cloud until late morning (11 a.m.). In this season, the southern lowlands of the country get beautifully decorated with mustard flowers and Papaya in ripe. From the mid of January, frequent snowfall could expect in the hilly regions above 2,700 metres and into the deep mountain valleys. Wintertime is still an ideal time to visit Nepal; the mountain sceneries are wider all around the Himalayas, and the famous destination such as Everest and Annapurna with less tourist. The temperature is still much more favourable than of many western countries. The night time temperature remains -17 to -30 degree (Everest BC) to -0 to -2 degrees in Kathmandu (sunset to sunrise). The day time temperature remains -5 degree (Everest BC) to 8 to 15 degrees in Kathmandu.

FAQ

Where do we sleep?
In Kathmandu, we stay in comfortable 3-5-star hotels with private en suite bathrooms, category selectable, and in Illam, we stay in comfortable non-star hotels with private en suite bathrooms. While on the trek, we sleep in a comfortable camping tent (Ozark/Mountain hardware) with a hard and soft mattress for each. While in camping treks there will be a dining tent with tables and chairs where you can sit and take meals. A kitchen tent gets set in every camp to prepare food.

What Equipment do I need?
You will need to bring appropriate warm outdoor clothing and a good pair of walking boots. A complete equipment list gets supplied when you sign up. Many of the necessary items can be purchased or rented in Kathmandu so don’t worry if you can’t buy everything where you live. The guides will check your equipment and clothing before departing from Kathmandu, so if anything is missing, there will be time to obtain anything necessary.

Can I arrive early or extend my stay?
Yes, you can! All you need to do is to tell us what your flight details are and how many extra nights you need and we will book your hotel accordingly. Additionally, if you would like to arrange a program of activities either before or perhaps after the trek, there are a range of options to choose from including the jungle safari at Chitwan national park, or perhaps white water rafting on one of Nepal’s spectacular rivers such as the Sun Kosi. The Kathmandu has several not to miss UNESCO World heritage sites and to visit all of them with time require at least 3-5 days.

Do we join a group during trekking?
No, we do not join/mix groups in Nepal unless you come as a group. The numbers of persons coming together with you are a group and served privately.

Can I have a single room?
Yes, you can! There is a single room occupancy supplement indicated in the price list.

What about insurance?
It is a condition of joining the trek that you have insurance in place which will cover you for the costs of medical treatment, cancellations, emergency rescue and repatriation to your home country. You must ensure that it provides cover for trekking to altitudes above 4000 metres and includes helicopter rescue. We do not sell insurance scheme so requires to manage on your own.

Do I need a visa?
Yes, you do. Everyone needs to get a visa for Nepal, but you can obtain it on arrival at Kathmandu airport. You will need to bring two passport photos and the appropriate visa fee, which is the US $30 for 15 days, US $50 for up to 30 days, and the US $125 for 90 days. Your passport must be valid for at least six months from the date of entry to Nepal.

How fit do I need to be?
Anyone who is in reasonable shape and good health can accomplish this trek. Some days will be harder than others, but none require much more than 5 or 6 hours of walking each day, with a leisurely lunch stop to break up the day. There is no rush or need to ‘keep up’, and you are free to walk at your own pace. We would recommend that you undertake some form of simple training in advance of the trek, such as a 30-minute walk each evening for a few weeks before the start of the trek. Another exercise, such as swimming, bicycling and playing tennis, is also ideal.

Do I have to carry my pack?
We use porters to carry the majority of our equipment so daily you need only take a very light day pack which should contain no more than the camera, water-bottle, a selection of snacks and a warm or waterproof jacket. Everything else needs to pack into a large duffle bag which will be given to a porter each morning. The kitbag will be carried by the porter each day and delivered to your lodge room each afternoon. You need to make sure you have everything you need for the day before giving your bag to the porter as it can be difficult to access while trekking.

Will I be affected by altitude?
Most of the trek takes place at lower altitudes where you are unlikely to notice anything other than mild shortness of breath at the beginning of the trek. As the days go by, you will gain acclimatisation and feel more adjusted to the higher altitudes. At a height above 4300 metres, one may experience a headache caused by the thin air and lack of oxygen, but these symptoms usually pass quickly. If you experience symptoms of altitude that does not go away, you will be accompanied by one of our Sherpas to a lower elevation, where you should quickly recover, or take a helicopter flight to Kathmandu. But such a possibility is very rare if we follow the itinerary and walking rhythm set by our guide.

What currency do we need to pay for everything?
It would be best if you had Nepali currency, to pay for everything, which you can convert after you arrive in Kathmandu. You can bring in euro or dollar or any convertible foreign currency.

How much extra money should we allow on top of the package?
Most of the major expenses are included in the trekking package, please check what is include and what is not included section. Still, you will need some extra money to bear the expenses such as meals in Kathmandu, bottled drinks during the trek (Mineral water/Coke/Beer/Juice), laundry service, and hot shower (the lodges does not include this service in the room!). In general, please, allow about 500$ per person which should be sufficient and some more or less as per personal habits while in a trip.

What kind of transport are we going to get?
A comfortable, full air-conditioned tourist vehicle (Car/Van/HiAce) as required by the numbers of persons travelling together.

What about the guide?
We provide government-certified local guides in any major international language you require. The guides are not only fluent in the respective language, but also have a good experience of the local culture and geography.

Do I need vaccinations to travel Nepal?
