Walking through the steep trail, you descend to the Helambu Valley, which is the third destination of the Langtang circuit trek. It is a remarkable destination with ethnic-cultural heritage and beautiful Sherpa cultural affluence. Naturally, it is a picturesque paradise. Trekking through the Helambu trail offers you a brilliant opportunity to experience the hospitality and explore the cultural abundance. The trek ends at Melamchi and drives to Kathmandu.

      Holy Lake Gosaikunda and Langtang Valley

      My family enjoyed Langtang Valley and Gosaikunda Lake Trek in April. As we had a kid with us, we needed to be more aware of the safety of the trip. The trek was excellent and thanks to our trip organizer- Nepal Kameleon Holidays. I recommend this company.

      Unforgettable experience! Langtang Trekking

      I had a really good experience with the Nepal Kameleon Holidays! I contacted the company a few months before being there and they organized everything according to what I wanted. 2 weeks of my stay were set before I arrived in Nepal, including the trek. Bhanu is a very professional and friendly manager who makes sure you are having a good time and having the trip you wanted. As a very caring person, he also spends some of his time helping the community of a village nearby.


      I had the chance to stay in a very comfortable hotel in Thamel - Kathmandu, have a guided tour of the city, stay in a yoga and meditation center close to Kathmandu and then enjoy a 8 days long trek through Gosainkunda and Helembu. The landscapes are simply breathtaking! I learned a lot about Nepal, its culture, and food thanks to Nepal Kameleon Holidays! As a solo traveler, I had the chance to share a few meals with Bhanu, as well as a visit to a famous temple. Unforgettable experience!
