Helambu Trek

Home » Helambu Trek

Helambu short trek can be accomplished within 5 to 7 days timebound from Kathmandu. You can start this trekking from Melamchi Bazar (about 60 Km from Kathmandu) or Sundarijal( 26 Km from Kathmandu).

We can also say the Helambu trek is the best short trek as it goes in the Langtang Himalayas. It’s one of the nearest mountain trekking trips from Kathmandu valley. Although it is closer to the capital city and the route is rich in nature and culture, it’s unpopular than Annapurna.

Besides the Hyalmo culture of Langtang people, the mix integrants of green Rhododendron and Bamboo forests, waterfalls, and the snow-capped Himalayas make the trek lifetime memorable. Spectacular views of the Langtang Himalayas and Hyolmo culture make this trip worthful.

Located northeast of Kathmandu, the valley offers pine forest, slow-moving rivers and swift mountain streams, rugged rock and snow-capped peaks, grassy downs, and meadows strewn with daisies and wild primulas.

During the Helambu trail, you can see stunning views of Langtang, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, Rolwaling, and Gauri Shankar. This trek is comparatively easier for beginners trekkers as the elevations are lower which ranges between 800m and 3600m.

The highest point of this trek is Tharepati Pass(3,650m) from where travelers can see a glimpse of Dorje Lakpa, Langsisa, Gauri Shankar, and many more snow-capped mountains. So for the beginners trekking in Nepal, this short hike can be best.

The beautiful short trek, Helambu, starts just 1-hour drive from Kathmandu to the Shivapuri National Park. This is a relatively less busy trekking route which is finished by passing through temperate forests, green valleys, Buddhist monasteries, and Tamang and Sherpa villages.

Other similar treks that you can include to extend the trip are; Helambu trek with Gosaikunda Pass or even adding Langtang Valley trek.
