One of the beautiful gems in the Langtang region, the Helambu Trek, is an adventure that explores the culturally rich Sherpa settlements. The trek explores the Helambu trekking, which is situated to the south of the Langtang ranges. Similarly, the trek also crosses paths with the serene trails in the Shivapuri National Park. While the cultural aspect of the valley is the highlight of the trek, the Himalayan ecstasy is even more magical.
The short 9-day trek begins with your arrival in the valley as you explore around and prepare for the trek. A short drive from the northern part of Kathmandu takes you to Sundarijal. From here, the trek officially begins as you begin the walk through the Shivapuri National Park. The biodiversity and charming trails of the national park offer excellent trekking experience to the trekkers. Heading north along the trails, you will reach Chisapani, which is a Sherpa village. The village also offers a beautiful panorama of the Langtang, Jugal, and Dorje Lakpa ranges.
Next, you enter the Helambu valley and trek to Kutumsang. The trek passes through numerous ethnic Sherpa villages with a unique culture and lifestyle. Trekking across forested trails, you head to Tarkeghyang, which is another Sherpa village in the Helambu valley. You can relish the lifestyle of the locals and also visit some of the revered cultural heritage in Tarkeghyang. As the trek nears its end, you trek south and head to Sermathang.
You will continue the trek to Melamchi Pul Bazaar from where you board a vehicle to Kathmandu. It is one of the easier treks in Nepal and does not require the trekkers to have an excellent physical condition. Also, the spring and autumn seasons are the best time for the Helambu Trek. At Narba Treks, we have an excellent team of skilled and experienced guides and porters. Moreover, we also have various trip packages with lucrative offers across the country.
