Overview

If you are wondering to exploring the natural splendor and well-preserved culture in unexplored and undisturbed areas, Helambu is the best destination where you have to go for a trek. Helambu, the highland village is around 80 km far from the capital city of Nepal, that lies in the Langtang region of Nepal. The beautiful place, Helambu is famous for artistic ancient Buddhist monasteries and its Buddhist pilgrimage site. It is one of the short treks near Kathmandu Valley, even though Helambu has been able to maintain its cultural uniqueness intact. The major attraction of Helambu is the cheerful nature of people with their unique culture, tradition and way of lifestyle. This trek will provide you full of enjoyment during your trek, as you pass the beautiful forests fused with varied flora and fauna as well as bird species. You can encounter with the wildlife and enjoy the pleasing tone of birds. You will also get chances to encounter with wide range of wildlife like red pandas, Himalayan black bear, Himalayas Tahr, pika, musk deer, ghoral, serow, rhesus monkey and common langur. 

The magnificent views of various Mountain such as; Langtang Lirung, Gaurishanker, Langshisa Ri, Dorje Lakpa, Ganesh Himal, Gangchenpo, Yala Peak, Naya Kanga, and Annapurna Himalaya range make this short trek one of the best treks in Nepal. Begging this pleasing trek from the Lauribina La Pass by following the Melamchi valley will surely take us to the home place to Hyolmo people, where you can enjoy interacting with the cultural blend of Tibetan Sherpa. Langtang Helambu trek is one of the perfect short treks for those travelers who are bounded by the time but eager to explore the remote and a holy lake Gosaikunda.  This trek is a relatively easy trek due to its low altitude (3000m) and The Thorong La Pass (3600m), the high points.

We will begin our Helambu trek from Kathmandu, around 2 hours drive downtown to Sundarijal or Syabru Bensi (7 to 8 hours’ drive), it depends upon your choices. Trekking through the larch and rhododendron flower forests and birds and exploring glacier and reach to a nearby summit for splendid mountain views is really awesome. Exploring holy lake, Gosaikunda and enter into Helambu and encounter with the cultural blend of diverse ethnic people is awe-inspiring. After that, we will return back to Kathmandu through the familiar route.
