Tour Details

The Helambu Trek is a short and sweet trek that guides trekkers into the tranquil and delightful trekking trails of Langtang. The trek route advances across the cascading waterfalls, impressive rhododendron woodland, scenic landscapes, and native human settlements. Alongside the trail, glimpses of abundant lush greenery, terraced farmlands, flourishing wildlife native, classic rural lifestyle as well as cultural diversity tends to make the trek blissful. In addition, trekkers are also rewarded with warm hospitality bestowed by friendly locals in combination with awe-inspiring outlooks of snow-capped mountain peaks like Langtang Lirung (7,234m), Dorje Lakpa (6,966m), Ganesh Himal Massif and Rolwaling Range. Besides that, Helambu is also celebrated for ancient monasteries and time-honoured culture and tradition of native residents. All of these together establish Helambu as an ideal trek for travel enthusiast and backpackers.

The name ‘Helambu’ is derived from word Hyomlo. Situated about 72km northeast of Kathmandu; Helambu is home to Sherpa, Tamang and Hyolmo communities positioned on upraised land, near the banks of Melamchi River. The region stretches out from the north of Taramarang and shares its perimeter with Raswua District close to the Gosainkunda Lake. Helambu Trek makes its way through Shivapuri National Park, a protected area harbouring exquisite flora and fauna alongside several species of birds. Being a trail, which welcomes fewer visitors; Helambu has been able to sustain the originality of its cultural and natural uniqueness.  Subsequent to a full-day Kathmandu exploration; we drive to Sundarijal and enter the territory of Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park. Afterwards, we’ll ascend the stone steps onto the Shivapuri ridges to a small dam and hydroelectric power station. From here, we set off on our trekking journey. Continuing the uphill ascend, we’ll make our way across the protected area of National Park and pass by splendid waterfalls, lush woodland and the beautiful village of Mulkharkha. Eventually, we’ll reach Chisapani (2,160m), which function as a resting point for travellers and trekkers. After a short rest, we’ll resume our trek and progress along the trekking trail beyond the settlements of Kutumsang, Thadepati and Tarkeghyang. Then, we trek to Sermanthang village and ultimately proceed to Melamchi Pul Bazaar. From this point, we drive back to Kathmandu, marking the end of our wonderful escapade.
