overview

Helambu Trek is a trekking package popular among those willing to travel to the Langtang region. We, at Sherpa Expedition and Trekking, offer you with five to seven days of this trekking package at a reasonable price and a convenient itinerary. Since clients' preferences are different for trekking, we can design the itinerary for you based on your demands. We commence the trekking journey either from Melamchi Bazaar (60 km from Kathmandu) or Sundarijal (26 km from Kathmandu).

This trekking trail has to offer the magnificent view of the mountain-scape, lush green pine forests, pristine rivers and streams along with grassy meadows with daisies and primulas. You will get to see snow bridges, high passes covered in mist and small lakes with an iceberg. This trek is relatively easy given that the elevation is low ranging between 800 meters and 3600 meters with less to climb and warm temperature. The best part of this trek is that the trail is lesser crowded and is less noisy. You will love to explore the culture and lifestyle of local people in the Helambu trek.

Tour Highlights

  • Explore the Shivapuri National Park and the scenic rural settlements with beautiful farm fields and historic Buddhist monasteries
  • Diverse terrain and magnificent panorama of the nearby peaks
  • Picturesque Langtang region and conservation area
  • Interesting Hyolmo culture of the people in the mountainous zone
  • Intriguing Tibetan village and lifestyle
