Overview

Helambu Trekking is an easy and best trekking in the Nepal Trekking Vacation. It is popular for the trekkers for abundant natural sceneries and cultural prosperities of ethnic groups. It goes through the Shivapuri National Park and reaches to the Langtang National Park, widely popular as the Helambu region. The spectacular Everest Himalayan range smiles on the background of the Helambu trekking trail. The seasonal flowers, lush forests, Tibetan lifestyles and Monasteris and Chhortens add the charmings of this trekking.

The short and spectacular Helambu trekking region is undisturbed and remains virtually unspoiled although it is in nearer distance from the capital city of Kathmandu. The trekking goes through the rhododendron and bamboo forests, magnificent waterfalls and green hills make the trek versatile and multiple features. The views of early morning sunrise and sunset in the evening are special reward in this trekking, especially from the village of chisapani. The rock formation and terraced landscape are amazing on the trail. It is less crowded and unpolluted. The trek leads forward crossing the Chisopani, Kutumsang, Thadepati and Sermathang villages. The trek ends at the Melamchi Pul Bazar in the Helambu region after spending an exploration day in Sermathang. Visiting the Buddhist monasteries, Chhortens and everyday lifestyles of ethnic groups like Tamang and Sherpa bring you closer to the Nepali traditions. The trek can be extended up to the Gosaikunda and Langtang Valley if you are more interested in the adventure walk.
