Helambu Trek


Helambu is popular among trekkers for its scenic grandeur & pleasant & favorable climate, located about 72 kilometers northeast of Kathmandu, is extending from north of Taramarang to the tree limit of the Gosainkunda Lake and lower slopes of Jugal Himal. There we meet several highland Tamang and Sherpa villages, scattered on both sides of the Malemchi Khola.

This trek is comparatively easier due to the fact that the elevations are lower, ranging between 800m and 3600m, offering the less climbing as well as warmer temperatures. The most important benefit of this trek is that the area is less crowded than in comparison to the Annapurna trek or some parts of the Everest treks. Besides, the trek offers a wide range of Buddhist cultures and spectacular scenery.
