If Helambu is just 80 km from Kathmandu, it’s certain that Helambu Trek should not take more than a week of yours. The route can be best chosen as an extension to your trip to Nepal, or if you only have a limited time in the country. Sometimes, the short trip is the best ones as they do not result in much exhaustion. Thus, the trip is reasonably perfect for ones who are restricted by time and health conditions. Or, the trip might not require a reason at all. The place is quite remote and is maintained by the native Hyolmo people. If you’re wondering what Hyolmo people are, they are known to be indigenous people of the Eastern Himalayan Region. By nature, they are neighborly – friendly and would love to see you visit their homeland. You might find them unfamiliar as they somehow look like Tibetans.
We start our Helambu Trek with a drive from Kathmandu to Sundarijal [1,390 m/4,560 ft.], and initiate the trek from the point. The course takes you through some of the earnest viewpoints that provide you striking sights of the surrounding places which are beautiful themselves. Chisopani, Hyolmo, Kutumsang, Magin Goth, Tharepati, Melamchi Gaun, Nakote and Tarke Jhyang are some of them. Most of the times, you’ll arrive at places habituated by people and meadows scattered with local animals. There are greeneries everywhere in Nepal. And you won’t lack another form of natural beauties too. Beautifully shining high Himalaya, rough rocky trails, isolated landscapes and remote settlements are what people have always admired in the country.
In short, this beautiful short trek is an enduring course for your holiday that includes the cultural taste of Tibetan influence, green vegetation, sights of local animals, close panoramic views of the Himalayas, homely hospitality everywhere and some of the miracles of nature that you would nowhere else get to see. People’s reviews are what make us delighted of our motherland. If you wish to take a look at some of them, you may get into the testimonial section to read about everything that our previous visitors have said about us, the country and their visit to their favorite places.
