Overview

Helambu trek is one of the shortest treks and specially designed for those who want to take a break and enjoy trekking in short time available. Helambu region lies at the northern side of Kathmandu and is an easy and comfortable trek compared to others. The walk mostly passes through the plain area but there are also occasional uphill and downhill walking. The trail passes through Sherpa settlement area where we can explore the traditionally and culturally rich Sherpa lifestyle. In addition to this, the trek offers the extraordinary beauty of natural landscapes, hills, valleys, colourful rhododendron forests and number of rivers, brooks, waterfalls and streams along the way. 
The trek takes you closer to the beautiful Himalayan peaks. The breathtaking view of Mount Ganesh Himal, Manaslu, Langtang and many others will keep you feel excited and rejuvenated during the trek. You can also visit several temples and Gompas throughout the journey. 
The journey begins with a drive from Kathmandu to Sundarijal and from Sundarijal the trek begins. Then the trek moves ahead through Helambu trail and comes to end at Melamchipul. From there the drive will bring you back to Kathmandu.
