Trip Introduction

Helambu short trek is popular trekking destination for trekkers in Langtang region. Blue Mountain Travels & Tours offers 5 to 7 days of this circuit at best cost and itinerary. You can start this trekking from both ways either Melamchi Bazaar about 60 Km or by Sundarijal 26 Km from Kathmandu. Located northeast of Kathmandu, it extends 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.
Helambu Short Trekking are vary on the desire of the clients and we can design the itinerary as per our client’s request. The Langtang valley is aptly called “the valley of glaciers”. Here the mountain- scape is spectacular. On either side of the valley, mountains rise, soaring into the sky. The valley offers pine forest, slow moving rivers and swift mountain streams, rugged rock and snow-capped peaks, grassy downs, and meadows strewn with daisies and wild primulas. In the upper part of the valley, there are snow bridges spanning angry torrents, high passes enveloped in mist, tiny lakes with icebergs coating on them and waters of crystalline brightness. This trek is comparatively easier one due to the fact that the elevations are lower, ranging between 800m and 3600m, offering less climbing as well as warmer temperatures.
The most important benet of this trek is that the area is less crowded & free from noise in comparison to the Annapurna trek and some parts of the Everest treks. Besides this, the trek offers a wide range of cultures and spectacular scenery. The Helambu Short 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 the 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.
