Helambu trek is one of the easiest and diverse treks around Kathmandu valley. Despite its proximity to the capital, the trail and the villages in the trek remain unaffected and unspoiled by the rest of the world. The well-designed off the beaten trails allow us to experience the beauty and serenity of the hills and the mountains.
The classic trek weaves its way through dense forests and cultural Buddhist villages accompanied by the breathtaking Himalayan vistas. The terrain includes dramatic ascents and descents as we appreciate the rhododendrons, conifers, and oaks with cattle grazing in the fields and high ridges in the moderate climate of the region.
The week-long trek takes us closer to the Tibetan border and high mountains of Langtang region as we attain the highest elevation of 3650 meters at Tharepati. The trek combines Sherpa and Tamang village cultures with the Himalayan vistas as well as the rich flora and fauna of Shivapuri National Park and Langtang National Park. The combination of beauty, culture, and adventure within a short period of time at lower elevations makes the trek a perfect getaway for everyone.
