Helambu Trek Overview

Helambu Trek is one of the charming short excursions that take you to the secluded Helambu region of Nepal. A great alternative to other treks of the region like; Lantang valley and Gosaikunda, the Helambu Trek is an off-beat trek in the region. Dominated by the Langtang Himalayan range, it is a rarely visited part of Nepal where you can witness the simplicity in the lifestyle of ethnic people living in the region. The trek offers you a trail full of pine forests, slow-moving rivers, rugged rocks, diverse landscapes, and snow-capped peaks as you pass through several traditional ethnic Tamang and Tibetan villages. It is also a comparatively shorter and easier trek as the highest elevation you'll reach during the trek is just 3650 m. Despite the elevation, the Helambu Circuit Trek provides you with spectacular views of the Langtang Himal (7245m), Ganesh Himal (7405m), Dorje Lhakpa (6990m), and other several small peaks of the Langtang Himalayan range. Along with the sceneries and landscape, another main highlight of the trek you should look forward to is the cultural richness and diversity all along the trail. You can observe and experience the traditional Tamang Buddhist culture and lifestyle influenced by Tibet during the trek. 

This total 8-days trek starts with a short drive from Kathmandu to Sundarijal and a hike to Chisapani. From Chisapani you'll pass through Kutumsang, Tharepati, Tarkeghyang, and Sermathang until you finally make it to the ending point of the trek, Melamchi Bazar from where you'll drive back to Kathmandu. A quick escape to the Himalayas and hillsides of Nepal, the Helambu Trek is ideal for trekkers with a brief time in their hands, taking you close to the nature and culture of the Himalayan region of Nepal.
