"The Helambu region is a beautiful sport. It is famous for the trekkers who would like to enjoy its scenery and favorable climate."
Helambu Trek is a short and easy trek which is about 72 km away from Kathmandu valley. It generally takes 5 days trek. It covers a wider area from north of Taramarang to the upper slope of a famous Gosaikunda Lake and downward slope of Jugal Himal. This less crowded trek is at the altitude of 800m to 3600m offering little less climbing as well as the warmer temperature which begins from Sundarijal about an hour drive from Kathmandu.
The Helambu trek rewards you with extensive Himalayan views, beautiful mountain streams, snow-capped peaks, grassy land, and meadows strewn with daisies and wild animals. There are snow bridges, spanning angry torrents, small lakes with iceberg’s floating on them and crystalline brightness formed by water in the upper part of the valley. This trek is free from any noise and comparatively easier because of less covered areas, low attitude, less crowded.
During the trek, you can perceive the unique culture of high mountain people as well as the beauty of nature with rhododendrons and bamboo forests. The snow-capped mountains and graceful waterfalls make the trek one of the most diverse treks near Kathmandu. The glorious mountain scenery at the border of Tibet and monasteries add an enthralling experience to the trek. The people living in the highlands of the Helambu region are Nepali and are of Tibetan origin and almost look like Tibetan.
Autumn and Spring are considered as the suitable seasons for the Helambu trek, however, winter is also good for trekking in this region. Besides easy trekking, it offers you a wide range of mountainous people’s culture and spectacular scenery. We will get the opportunity to interact with Tamang and Sherpa peoples in the upper section during the Helambu trekking. Helambu trek is safe and recommended. Sherpa Expedition and trekking are glad to operate this trek for you to make it your life experience.
(Note our company guide will carry the medicines and first aid kits during the trek. However, we recommend better to bring your personal first-aid kit as well)
You will be accommodated in a 3-star hotel in Kathmandu. During the trek, teahouses are readily available; all accommodation is on a twin sharing basis. You may find good quality teahouses at the lower altitude but at the higher elevation, you may get to stay in teahouses where accommodations are settled just with a bed, mattresses and a pillow.
Breakfast will be served in Kathmandu whereas full board services (Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner) is provided during the trek. Variety of meals are available especially noodles, soups, and rice dishes; on some routes, there will be a limited choice and on some routes teahouses only provide local Nepali dish, Dhal Bhat (lentil and rice).
Helambu trek is an easy and moderate trek that takes you away from your hometown to have some good quality time. It is the perfect destination for trekkers who love to walk steadily 4-5 hours a day. We have met people from different walks of life, even first-time travelers can easily pass the trek, and all you need to do is a regular exercise to accomplish this trek. Past experience of any hiking or trekking activities is always a plus.
Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to December) are usually known as the best season to do a Helambu Trek. You are much more likely to see clear views throughout the year however we do not suggest you travel in monsoon season.
