Helambu Valley Trekking

Helambu Valley TrekkingHelambu Valley trekking is a short and easy trek within Langtang National Park and is easily accessed from Kathmandu. Helambu Trek offers many Monasteries to visitors, colourful rhododendron flowers, superb mountain views, picturesque Sherpa settlements, friendly people and after all unspoiled culture of the area. This trek is more like a cultural trek than the mountain and glacier expeditions. The people here think of themselves as Sherpa’s, but their relationship with the Sherpa of the Solukhumbu is distant. The dialects spoken are also different. People here follow the Buddhist religion, so you will find many old Buddhist monasteries in the villages. Tarkeghyang is another Sherpa town along the way, which bears its own story. Our trek starts from Kathmandu after driving by bus/car to Sundarijal, which is just 13kms from Kathmandu. We then continue to ascend to Chisapani where we spend the first night just outside the valley. Chisapani offers great views of the mountains and landscape. We then almost make a full circle going through Kutumsang, Tharepati, Tarkeghyang, and Sermathang and finally to Melamchi Pul Bazaar where we take the bus back to Kathmandu.
