The Helambu trek is a perfect short trek nearby Kathmandu
Valley. Despite being so close to Kathmandu, the Helambu region remains
relatively un-spoilt. Besides the hyolmo culture of high mountain people, the
company of green rhododendron and bamboo forests, majestic waterfalls, and
snow-capped Himalayas make the trek one of most diverse treks near Kathmandu.
The great Himalayan scenery at the border with Tibet and monasteries make a
trek to the region an enthralling experience. The people living the highlands
of the Langtang region are certainly the Nepalis, being the descendant of the
Tibetan origin, they still look like Tibetans.
The Helambu Trek begins from Sundarijal, an hour's drive from Kathmandu. After about an hour's walk, we enter Shivapuri National Park. Continuing along the Chisopani, Kutumsang, Thadepati and Sermathang, the trek ends at the Melamchi Pul Bazar in the Helambu region. The trek passes through thick mountain forests with great Himalayan views and toward the end of the trip, you will also trek through some beautiful rice terraces and a number of splendid Buddhist monasteries.

Best Choice for our trekking experience
Choosing Life Dream Adventure as our trip organizer was the best decision. Hari Bhatta, the company's director, has an extensive experience as a guide and it's noticeable with every detail that he sets up all treks/trips provided. This is not the first time I collaborate with him - I started to use him and his company services since 2011 and it's my go to person in Nepal. He speaks English very well and makes sure logistics run smoothly and without any surprises.
