Helambu Trek

Duration: 9 Days

Helambu Trek is a lower altitude trek in the Langtang region. It is the nearest trekking to the Kathmandu valley. It is straightly linked with the local communities, who are the indigenous groups of Nepal. Sherpa, Tamang and other groups populate this region. Trekkers can explore the local villages and their traditions, including garments, foods, and drinks. Himalayas, green hills and other natural speculates further allure you to enjoy the god gifted ecstasy.

Trek to Helambu valley begins from Sundarijal, after a short drive west of Kathmandu. It is a watershed area, which has become a place of attraction for the urban people. The trekking trail is comprehensive and easy. Passing wonderful Mulkharka, you reach to Chisapani, which is the first camp and a better place to stay. Crossing the green hills and gorge, you arrive at Kutumsang and Tharepati pass. Tharepati is a tough walk, which has got a hat falling steep ascending trail. The sceneries of Dorje Lhakpa and the Langtang panoramas are seen fabulous. Helambu valley is named from the Hyolmo community, who is the indigenous group of Nepal. Sherpa people of this valley are entirely different than of the Khumbu valley. From Tharepati pass, you walk to Tarkeghyang, Sermathang and to conclude in Melamchi Pul Bazaar. SermaTang is a Sherpa village where we can explore the beautiful monastery with the beautiful Jugal Himal in the north face of the village.
