Helambu Trekking

Helambu Trekking

Helambu is situated in the northern part of the country; about 75km from Kathmandu and the area is inhabited by Sherpa’s. The languages, culture and the dress of Helambu Sherpa are different from those of Solokhumbu Sherpa. On the way to any Langtang trek you can also do Helambu trek either from Gosaikunda or from Ganja La pass (5106m).The route from Ganja La pass is quite difficult in winter because of height and usually snow-covered trail.

Sundarijal (1350m) is the best place to start Helambu trek. With a short drive you can get to Sundarijal from Kathmandu by private car or van. Helambu trekking offers a scenic loop through villages of varied ethnic make up with good high- mountain views. In the way of Helambu there is a surprising amount of old- growth forest. Magnificent old rhododendrons grace the trail between Tharepati and Malemchaigaon. It has a splendid variety of wild flowers, snow covered peaks, and varieties of birds to make your journey remarkable.

The best time for trekking in the Helambu area is from October to May. In the way of Helambu trekking there is the chance of altitude problems and you should be prepared for and possible snow at Tharepati during the winter. In this area good lodges are abundant and uncrowned.
