About Trip

Helambu Trek is a lower altitude excursion in the Langtang region. It is a trip that combines natural attractions with cultural abundance. The trekking region is located at the closest distance from the Kathmandu valley, in the northern part. The Helambu valley is a cultural center with multiple attractions. The snow-capped mountains and the greenery of the rhododendron and oak forest prospect the natural jewel of the Helambu region. 

Trek to the Helambu valley begins from the watershed area of the Shivapuri National Park. Exploring the vibrant ethnic Tamang culture, walking through the uphill trail, you reach the Sherpa valley of this valley. Nepal Kameleon Holidays' 11 Days Helambu Trek offers an opportunity for you to explore the culture of the Sherpa people and their cultural heritage sites. The fabulous mountains include the exclusive Mt. Everest range, Langtang Lirung, Dorje Lhakpa, Annapurna Himalayas, and others that look brilliant. The Sherpa of this valley is not the same Sherpa of the Khumbu region, but they are also loaded with culture, traditions, and cultural celebrations. The hospitality and welcoming nature of these people have made this trek extremely exclusive. Concluding the trek at Melamchi Pul Bazaar, you drive back to Kathmandu. Nepal Kameleon Holidays arrange this trek with the experienced guide and porters. We are fully dedicated to making your Helambu valley trek memorable and professionally designed Helambu treks itinerary. Please, feel free to contact us for more details.
