Background

The highlands of Helambu are truly awe-inspiring trekking destinations which offer a surreal combination of natural beauty and cultural authenticity. Located to the south of Langtang Valley and Gosainkunda Lake, Helambu Trek is an easy and short trek. The trek offers you a beautiful view of forests, valleys, and mountain peaks including Langtang Lirung (7227m), Dorje Lakpa (6966m), Mt. Gaurishankar (7134m), Ganesh Himal (7422m), and Rolwaling Himalayan Range. Helambu Trek is enjoyable and suitable for those who crave Himalayan adventure within a limited time in hand. 

The 9-day Helambu Trek starts with your arrival in Kathmandu. Helambu lies around 80 km towards the north of Kathmandu city. From Kathmandu after trek preparation, you start your trip and drive to Sundarijal. From Sundarijal, you start walking uphill through Chisapani, Kutumsang, and Thadepati. It is the highest point of the trek. From Thadepati, you start descending. You pass Tarkeghyang and Sermathang to arrive at Melamchi Pul Bazaar. Tarkeghyang is a Sherpa village where you will get to experience the richness of culture, religion, and lifestyle of the indigenous Hyolmo people. Sermathang is another culturally rich village. From Melamchi Bazaar you drive back to Kathmandu and bring the trip to an end the next day as you return home. During this trek, you get a nice view of Langtang Range, Dorje Lakpa (6966m), Gaurishankar (7134m), Rolwaling Himalayan range and Ganesh Himal (7422m). All in all, the trek is a magnificent adventure in an easily accessible distance from Kathmandu.
