Trip Overview

Helambu Trek is a short and easy trek of Nepal and easily access from Kathmandu. Helambu offers many Monastery visits, Rhododendron forest (flower; March/April), 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 mountain and glacier expeditions. People here call themselves Sherpas but their relationship with the Sherpa of Solu Khumbu 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 13km from Kathmandu. We then continue to ascend to Chisopani where we spend the first night just outside the valley. Chisopani offers a great view of mountains and landscapes. Then we make almost a circle going through Khtumsang, Tharapati, Tarkeghyang, Sarmathang, and finally to Melamchi pul where we take a bus to Kathmandu.

Clients carry daypack only and walk at their own pace. Trekking hour is about 5-6 per day.

Client's Reviews

Nepal is a nation between India and Tibet known for its temples and Himalayan mountains, which include Mt. Everest. Kathmandu, the capital, has a mazelike old quarter filled with Hindu and Buddhist shrines.

We did the 12-day itinerary trekking to Everest Base Camp. We booked it all from England and communicated with the owner Hari via email. Such a nice family that owns and runs this business. Very friendly and welcoming. We had loads of cups of tea with them in their shop in Thamel before and after our trek.
