Lumbasumba La , Kanchenjunga, Makalu

Looking for partner(s) to obtain permits , and possibly share camping. My first choice this year is the Lumbasumba La between Makalu and Kanchenjunga areas, combined with either Makalu or Kanchenjunga – or even both! I have trekked both areas before , but not the pass itself.

For the moment , I am very flexible , and would consider any other area that is not easily accessible alone. For example, Upper Dolpa , Nar/Phu/Mustang, any of the passes out of Langtang (except Gosainkunda), Dhaulaghiri Circuit , Tashi Lapsa , etc.

I usually trek with just a guide , but I realise that more may be needed in some of these areas.

I will be in Nepal from the end of October until mid December , trekking most of the time . Interested in hearing of anyone who might be interested in co-operating for any part of this time.

    • Hi Craig,
      Thank you for your message. I am now committed to Lumbasumba starting after 10 November. Sounds like we might meet on the trail after you leave KBC!
