Helambu Trekking

Helambu is popular among the trekkers for its scenic grandeur, pleasant favorable climate, located about 72 kilometers northeast of Kathmandu, is extending from north of Taramarang to the tree limit of the Gosainkunda Lake and lower slopes of Jugal Himal. There we meet several highland Tamang and Sherpa villages, scattered on both sides of the Malamchi Khola. Helambu is situated nearly 75 km. north-east of Kathmandu trekking is very famous trekking trail lying in Langtang region. This trekking is relatively low altitude trek and is considered to be one of the best areas for having a short trek; therefore, this is one of the most loved trekking trails in Nepal. It is one of the most convenient and short treks, as this trek lies close to Kathmandu. The trekking to Helambu is famous for its scenic grander and pleasant climate.

Langtang Helambu trekking includes the trip to the remote and spectacular valley of the region and the high mountain lake known as holy Gosainkund. During the trek in Helambu, is all about hiking between mostly at the lowest altitude 3000m and the high point is Tharepati La pass (3600m). Helambu trek is a relatively low altitude one and because it is close to Kathmandu, it is convenient yet surprisingly free of trekkers. The trek passes through some beautiful forests and very interesting villages on route. Along the way, we visit the homes of Brahmins; Tamangs and Sherpa people of Nepal. In the Helambu region, the Sherpas are quite distinct from the Sherpas of the Everest region in both language and customs. The ranges of mountains that rise above us match the diversity of the people we meet. From low altitudes, we have excellent views of mountains that include the Langtang range, the Annapurnas, Manaslu and even Everest on a clear day.
