Trip Overview

Even though this trek is within short reach of Kathmandu, The Helambu Trek remains relatively untouched by tourism. It offers great opportunity to explore the waterfalls, rhododendron trees, bamboo forests at lower levels and experience sweeping views of the snow covered Himalayas in upper part. As it is a relatively low altitude trek, temperatures remain mild compared to other treks. This combined with the comparatively gentler grades makes it a perfect introduction to Nepal’s mountain treasures.

The trek starts at Sundarijal, a one hour drive from Kathmandu. It heads north toward Gosainkund to Thadepati Pass (3686m) where it turns east toward the village of Melamchigaon and on to Tarkeghyang before heading south and gradually downhill to Sermathang and on to Melamchi Bazaar, the end of the trek.

Villages of the upper section of the trek are inhabited by Tamang and Sherpa people who are predominantly Buddhist. You will encounter many monasteries and Buddhist monuments along the way. Staying in teahouses, you will have the opportunity to explore the traditional culture, enjoy the hospitality and sample the traditional food of the local people.

The trek starts and finishes in Kathmandu. To keep cost as low as possible, we offer the flexibility for you to arrange your own accommodation in Kathmandu however we are happy to arrange this for you if you wish.
