Helambu Trek

Helambu trek is a short trekking destination begins from Kathmandu Valley. Offering gorgeous views of Gauri Shanker (7134 m), Lamtang Lirung (7246 m) and Ganesh Himal (7405 m). Following a ridge line the trail passes through Kutumsang (2460 m), the first permanently inhabited village of this trek and climbs through cool rhododendron forests to Tharepati (3597 m), the highest point of the trek. The Gompa that we come across at Tarke Ghyang commands excellent views of Dorje Lakpa (6996 m) and Ganja La to the north. Despite being so close to Kathmandu, the Helambu region remains relatively un-spoilt. Besides the hyolmo culture of high mountain people, bamboo forests, magnificent waterfalls, and snow-capped Himalayas make the trek one of most diverse treks near Kathmandu. The great Himalayan scenery at the border with Tibet and monasteries make a trek to the region a fascinating experience. The people living the highlands of the Langtang region are certainly the Nepalis, being the descendant of the Tibetan origin, they still look like Tibetans.

The Helambu Trek begins from Sundarijal, an hour’s drive from Kathmandu. After about an hour’s walk, we enter Shivapuri National Park. Continuing along the Chisopani, Kutumsang, Thadepati and Sermathang, the trek ends at the Malemchi Pul Bazaar in the Helambu region.
