Lumba Sumba Trek is one of the new trekking routes explored by Trekking Agencies’ Association of Nepal (TAAN) in 2012. The remote Lumba Sumba Himal lies between the massifs of Makalu and Kangchenjunga, with Lumba Sumba Peak situated just south of a recently developed trekking route connecting the Tamur River Valley in the east to the Arun Valley in the west. Lumba Sumba Peak (5200m) is the major attraction of this route. Offering some of the most spectacular Himalayan landscapes, this trekking route consists of different ethnic groups like the Limbus, Sherpas, Rai, Gurung, Magars, Newars and Tamangs Trekkers can explore the traditional farming practices and see different birds and wildlife species, including the endangered snow leopard and red panda, from the route. There are a number of high mountain lakes in Olangchung Gola. Through this route, we explore two of Nepal’s best preserved protected areas – the Kanchanjunga Conservation Area and the Makalu Barun National Park. The Tamor and Arun River systems can be the other attraction for tourists in this route. These two rivers are the major tributaries of the mighty Sapta Koshi River. Here we can found flora and fauna and one can see different birds and wildlife species, including the endangered snow leopard and red panda along the route.
