Helambu Trekking encompasses the Helambu region, home of Sherpas Hyolmo. Though located only a few kilometers away from Kathmandu, it remains serene and isolated unlike the bustling city. The Helambu trek is a relatively low altitude trek and therefore, in many ways, much easier than many other trekking options in the Langtang region. It is also one of the most well located short treks due to its close proximity to Kathmandu.

The highest point of the Helambu trekking is Tharepati, which is at a height of 3600m. Most of the trekking trail lies at an altitude range of 800m to 3000m. Helambu trek offers an insight into the Sherpa Hyolmo culture and beautiful rhododendron and bamboo forests, waterfalls and snow capped Himalayas. You will also come across Buddhist monasteries.

Trekking in Helambu is perfect for those travelers who dont have much time in Nepal. The trail begins from Sundarijal, which is an hours drive from the main city of Kathmandu. After about an hour of walking, you will reach Shivapuri National Park. From there, the trail then goes past Chisopani, Kutumsang, Thadepati, Sermathang, Melamchi gaun, Hyolmo and Tarke Gyang.
