Langtang Helambu Trek


The Sherpa villages of Helambu due north of Kathmandu valley presents an easy getaway. This area because of its low elevation and the Sherpa villages make it an interesting 6 day loop. Starting with a short drive from Kathmandu to Sundarijal the trail to Helambu climbs on to the Shivapuri ridge from where there are sweeping views of the central Himalayas.
 

Following a ridgeline the trek heads north to Thare Pati before turning east to Melemchi Gaon and Tarke Gyang the principle villages of this area. From here we visit Shermathang before descending to the Melamchi river to end our trek with a drive Melamchi Bazaar back to Kathmandu. The trek is combined with the two days Chitwan wildlife reserve, known for One Horned Rhino, Bengal Tiger, Sloth Beer, wild boar, barking deer and over 300 species of birds.
