Helambu Trek - 11 Days

Helambu Trek - 11 Days

    All Nepal Hiking provides a one-of-a-kind hiking experience in a rural community through Shivapuri National Park and Langtang National Park. Helembu hikes offer an extraordinary opportunity to learn about the culture and way of life of the Hyalmo Sherpa, Tamang, and Highlanders. Helambu hiking begins at Sundarijal, northeast of Kathmandu, and continues via Shivapuri National Park. Shivapuri National Park is quite near Kathmandu and provides drinking water for Kathmandu residents. Helambu Valley is well-known for its natural beauty, beautiful weather, and breathtaking vistas of the snow-capped mountains. The Helambu region has traditional Hyalmo-Sherpa mountain communities and lovely rhododendron and pine forests. People from several ethnic groups live in the Helambu valley, including Tamang, Hyalmo, Sherpa, and some Brahmin, Chhetri, and Newar. The Hylmo people's traditional kitchen and dining decorations are particularly inspiring. Their clothing and jewelry are done in their classic style. We also visit Buddhist monasteries, Gompas, Stupas, and Mani walls from one end to the other.

    Helambu hiking is forward and short at lower altitudes, with plenty of nature-fearless tourists. The overlooks at Tharepati provide a panoramic view of Annapurna, Ganesh Himal, and the eastern Himalayan range, which includes Mt Everest.
