Helambu Trek - 8 Days

Helambu Trek is one of the most beautiful valleys in Nepal. Helambu lies at an maximum height reached during the trek is about 3650 m. Helambu’s people call themselves Sherpa, although they’re only distant cousins of the Solu-Khumbu stock. Tamangs are also numerous, while the valley bottoms are farmed mainly by caste Hindus and with so many trails to choose from, those that do tend to spread themselves out. So, we get the golden opportunity to explore the culture of Sherpa and tamang residents.

Helambu Trek is a great trek done near from Kathmandu. The Helambu Trekking  route starts  from Sundarijal, driving  an hour from Kathmandu. Then,we will have entrance to Shivapuri National Park.We follow up the trek continuing the  trek to Chisopani, Kutumsang, Thadepati and Sermathang, the trek ends at the Melamchi Pul Bazar in the Helambu region. The trek passes through stunning terrace fields of rice. We get to be closer with the number of splendid Buddhist Monasteries. Similarly, we pass through the thick Mountain Forests. The  Helambu trek provides the most spectacular  views of the Langtang (7245m), Ganesh Himal (7405m), Dorje Lhakpa (6990m) and other small mountains of Langtang Himalayan range. This is overall an ideal trip for those having short time which  combines the nature and culture of the area.
