About this trip

Helambu trekking is one of the popular trekking destination located north east of Kathmandu Valley. Helambu Region extends from north of Tramarang and borders with Rasuwa district near the Gosaikunda Lake. The region is home to beautiful Tamang, Sherpa and Hyolmo settlements on the either side of the Melamchi River and is famed for ancient monasteries, age-old culture and tradition of Hyolmo people and stunning mountain views. Helambu trekking offers pine forest, slow moving rivers and swift mountain streams, snow-capped mountains and abundant greenery.

Helembu trekking  is comparatively easier due to the fact the elevation are lower, ranging between 800 meters and 3600 meters offering less climbing as well as warmer temperatures. The most important benefit of this trek is that the area is less crowded as compared to Annapurna and the Everest regions. Besides, this trek offers an insight into unique culture and lifestyle of the Hyolmo people.

Helambu trekking extends from the Melamchi pul to Gosaikunda lake. There are two ways to reach Langtang region -the first is via Langtang region. Most of the foreign trekkers begin their Langtang trek from Dhunche, Gosaikunda, Tharepati and return via Melamchi Pul bazaar after visiting Helambu. The second option is to start trek from Chisapani near Sundarijal through Patibhanjyang, Kutumsang and Helambu via melamchi Gaon.

Trake Ghyang is the largest village in the Helambu region named after the Tarke Ghyang monastery – the largest monastery in Helambu region. Built around 300 years ago, the monastery is a religious as well as social institution for Hyolmo people. Locals from nearby villages gather in the monastery premises during religious and social occasions. Chiri Ghyang, the oldest monastery in Helambu is another attraction in Tarke Ghyang.
