Easy Helambu Trek

Located on the northern outskirts of the valley and Helambu region constitutes high hills and settlements. The Helambu trek is one of the most common and short trek that gives you the taste of trekking in Nepal. This trek is simple as well as very safe, so for beginners it can be a good start off.

The trek takes you through Rhododendron forests along sharp ridge-lines with scenic views of Langtang, Ganesh Himal and Gauri Shankhar ranges. At Tharepati, you will see the Lauraybina La pass that leads into the Lantang valley, and will also pass through the Langtang national park. The villages of Melamchigaon, Tarkegyang and Sermanthang will be your stops along the way and each village offers fascinating glimpses of local lifestyle and culture. You will end your trek in the small roadside town of Melamchipul.

Truly Enthralling Experience

An easy day walk took me to the serene region of Helambu and the very region detained me with its picturesque grandeur and rolling mountain views extending to the horizon. I walked via the mountain trails- lined with beautiful rhododendron flowers, meeting the friendly mountain people in almost every corner. I interacted with them and became the part of their still living age old hyolmo culture. This is one of the finest mountain journeys I have ever had.

Perfect Short Trek

I was in search of short trekking package and Helambu trek turned out to be the perfect option for me- no special permits, very few altitude hassles and decent tea houses. Passing the bamboo groves, wildflowers and rolling Sherpa farmlands, I reached to an alpine meadows of Kyanjin Gompa, from where I got breathtaking view of Himalayas. An isolated walk via the secluded trails offered the awestruck glimpses of the village life amid a picturesque alpine wilderness.
