Helambu Short Trek

This trek is proposed for those travellers who have less time to stay in Nepal but wish to travel not too far from Kathmandu Valley. Helambu is a low level trekking region north of Kathmandu. The trekking trail allows us to walk through forests of rhododendron, pine, oak and ultimately we reach picturesque villages of Malemchigaun and Tarke Gyang inhabited by Sherpas and Tamang ethnic people. The Sherpas of this region differ in their social practices from those inhabiting the Everest region. The village people are very nice and friendly. They welcome the travellers to their homes. Some nights we will spend in these so called "home stays". Upon you wish we can combine the Helambu cultural trekking with the Langtang and Gosainkunda trek. This combined trek can be completed in 14 days. Helambu cultural trekking can be easily organised throughout the year though in the winter there could be some snowfall on the higher ridges and the temperatures could drop near Tharepati.
