7 Days Helambu Trekking

Enjoy 7 Days Helambu Trekking at Langtang Area exploring Tamang villages, culture with excellent view of Langtang Himalayan Ranges.

Helambu is the closest region in north of Kathmandu. It is inhabited by Tamang and Sherpa in the upper section. It provides typical glimpse of life in the village of Nepal. The Tamang and Sherpa villages of Helambu in north of Kathmandu valley presents an easy getaway. Starting with a short drive from Kathmandu to Sundarijal the trail to Helambu climbs on to the Shivapuri ridge from where there are sweeping views of the central Himalayas. Following a ridge-line the trek heads north to Thare Pati before turning east to Melemchi Gaon and Tarke Gyang the principle villages of this area. Trek end at Melamchi pul, you then drive to Kathmandu.

This trek is rated as an easier trek because the elevations are lower, ranging between 800m. and 3600m., which indicates less climbing and warmer temperatures. One advantage to this trek is there are fewer trekkers here than on the Annapurna trek and some parts of the Everest treks, but there is still a wide range of cultures and spectacular scenery.
