Trip Introduction;
Langtang Helambu Trekking is relatively short in duration and closer to the capital city - Kathmandu. Located inside Langtang region of Nepal, the trail offers an exploration of diverse landscapes, serene alpine forests, traditional villages, rich Buddhist culture, and religion. Langtang Helambu Trekking is relatively well known for its un-spoilt areas, rhododendron and bamboo forests, majestic waterfalls and stunning mountain scenery. The trek can also be categorized as a religious trekking route since we can explore several Tibetan monasteries, Tibetan cultural influenced villages, amazing mountain peoples and their lifestyle. Three ethnic peoples - Tamangs, Bhotias, and Yolmus inhabit the Langtang Helambu region. 

Langtang Helambu Trekking with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition starts after an hour drive from Kathmandu to Sundarijal. From there we begin our adventurous trekking journey as we follow an ascending trail to reach our first overnight stay at Chisapani. The scenic hill station of Chisapani offers magnificent views of Langtang to Jugal Himal Mountain Ranges. From there we continue our uphill and downhill trekking with magnificent views of Langtang Mountains Ranges. Our trek passes through the settlements of Tharepati and Tarkeghyang. We follow the trail that goes through dense rhododendron forests to arrive at the scenic viewpoint Yurin Danda. 

Our further trekking heads through the warm and friendly Sherpa settlements as an approach towards Tharepati located at an altitude of 3650 meters above the sea level. Tharepati is the highest point of our Langtang Helambu Trekking. From there our journey heads further to Sermathang with an easy trek through forests, streams, and waterfalls. En-route we reach Gangyul village which is one of the traditional and cultural Sherpa village.

Short Nepal stay with Helambu Trek

Dear Prakash and entire team of Nepal Guide!!!!!!!

We, from USA had an amazing experience of 6 days Helambu trek!!!!! After the trip, we came to know Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition team is established by experienced people. Our guide was really honest, knowledgeable and funny too, he has good communication skill, and he always provides good guideline. Once, we interested to speak with local mountain peoples but could not due to language problem and we used our guide to communicate with those kind and hospitable natives. 

Highly recommended Nepal Guide Treks *****
