An amazing short trekking experience near Kathmandu, Helambu Trek offers a blend of nature and adventure. The route is famous for its natural beauty, stunning views, and intriguing cultures. In addition, it will take you to some untouched and unspoiled parts of central Nepal.
Remote yet Accessible
Helambu Trek is easily accessible from Kathmandu, and it merely takes about a week to complete this fantastic trek. We will see some rare birds, wildlife, and plants as we tread through the Langtang Valley. Moreover, the ancient villages of Chisopani, Sermathang, and Kutumsang, among others, will inspire a unique perspective of Nepali Culture.
It also involves trekking through the Shivapuri National Park and witnessing some spectacular views of beautiful mountains. These snow-capped mountains include Ganesh Himal and Langtang Himal. Furthermore, with vibrant valleys and lovely rhododendron forests, it is almost an ideal short trek.
An Intermingling of Culture and Adventure
Helambu Trek begins from Sundarijal, which is merely an hour drive away from Kathmandu. We walk for about an hour from Sundarijal to reach Shivapuri National Park. Then, we pass through the villages of Chisopani, Thadepati, Kutumsang, and Sermanthang. The final destination of Helambu Trek is Melamchi Pul Bazaar. We will come back to Kathmandu after traversing thick forests, beautiful farmlands, and stunning monasteries.
