29 trekking days for Makalu BC (warm up, altitude acclimatisation), then liaison through Lumbha Sambha La to Kangchenjunga BC North and South.

Building a 2 to 4 trekkers group, with a licensed guide and 1 to 2 porters for logistics (tents, food, kitchen material). Additional porter optional if one trekker required it.

Candidates should have experience of:
– long duration treks (more than 15 days in a row).
– long trekking days (8h to 9h30) with only short rest in some villages (will be possible at Hongon, Thudam, Olangchun Gola).
– high altitude acclimatisation (for instance 3 passes in Khumbu).

Camping required from Makalu departure to Ghunsa, then lodge trekking possible.

This 29 days trek require:
– Makalu Barun Park ticket.
– Sankuwasabha Restricted Area Permit.
– Taplejung Restricted Area Permit.
– Kanchenjunga Conservation Area ticket.

Possible early exits from:
– Olangchun Gola (after Lumbha Sambha La, before Kangchenjunga), 18th day.
– Ghunsa (after Nango La), 20th day.
– Ghunsa (after returning from Pang Pema), 24th day.

Due to the difficult area from Barun Valley to Hongon, guide should be a local from the Upper Arun Valley, for instance Hatiya, Hongon, Chepuwa, Guthigumba, Chyamthang villages. Experience of the Lumbha Sambha La crossing appreciated.
