Helambu trek is a short and easy trek of Nepal and easily accessible from Kathmandu. The Helambu Trekking is popular trekking among the trekkers for its scenery and favorable climate. Helambu trek offers superb mountain views, picturesque Sherpa settlements, and after all unspoiled culture. This trek is more like cultural trek than mountain and glacier expeditions. Sherpas who live in Helambu are different than those living in the Khumbu region. Since the region has a majority of the Buddhist religion, trekkers will find numbers of Buddhist monasteries in the villages. Tarkeghyang is another Sherpa village along the way, which bears its own story.
Our trek starts from Kathmandu after driving by bus/car to Sundarijal, which is just 13 km from Kathmandu. We then continue to ascend to Chisopani where we spend the first night just outside the valley. Chisopani offers a great view of mountain and landscape. Then we make almost a circle going through Khtumsang, Tharapati, Tarkeghyang, Sarmathang and finally to Melamchi pul where we take a bus to Kathmandu.
