highlights
  • Enjoy trekking in areas close to the Kathmandu Valley
  • Travel through ethnic Tamang and Sherpa villages
  • See great views of the Langtang Range
  • Superb mountain views from Tharepati.
Take the road less travelled during this eight-day trip and experience the beauty of areas not far from the Kathmandu Valley. Join us on this guided trek to Helambu, just 80 km away from the valley. Enjoy great views of the Langtang Range and learn more about the Hyolmo people.

The trek starts from Sundarijal, located on the eastern side of the Kathmandu Valley, and continues via Shivapuri National Park, Chisopani, Kutumsang, Thadepati and Sermathang before coming to an end in Melamchi Pul Bazaar in the Helambu region.

This is a relatively low-altitude trek along a less busy route through temperate forests, green valleys, lush fields and Tamang and Sherpa villages. You will see Langtang, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, Rolwaling and Gauri Shankar mountains along the route.

Oliver's review for another Icicles Adventure Treks and Tours Pvt Ltd tour
5 - Excellent
“Clear blue skies and fantastic vistas every day in late March 2016. I was 58 at the time and found the trek to be very doable. There were trekkers much older than me that accomplished it as well. In the teahouse dining rooms each evening, we enjoyed the company of travelers from the most diverse nationalities I have ever encountered in such a short time frame. There seemed to be an almost equal number of females as males. The menus are surprisingly full given that almost all of the food must be carried in. Every day brings rewarding scenery and passage through isolated villages. After Dingboche, the villages are there only to service the trekkers and the altitudes are probably too high to support farming. All in all a wonderful fulfilling experience.”

“The trek was much harder than expected. We really enjoyed it but I needed to hire a horse to help climb the thousands of step.”
3 Star Hotel at Kathnadu Suite Home
Our airport representative will receive you outside the airport terminal at Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu and transfer you to your hotel in a private tourist vehicle.

Please note that if your arrival is scheduled after 4:00 pm, your guide will brief you about the trip on the way to your hotel. But, if you are arriving earlier than that, your pre-tour meeting will be held on that day in our office. Please make sure that you carry your passport, three copies of passport-sized photographs and a copy of your travel insurance policy.
4 hours Guest house
Leave for Sundarijal (1350 m) in the morning. The trail climbs through forests to reach a reservoir with its dam and pipelines. The first settlement that you will come across today is Mulkharka. Walk along a ridge and through a forest of oak and rhododendron trees to reach Chisapani. Stay overnight at a guesthouse.
5 hours Guest house
Start your journey after breakfast. From Chisapani, the trail leads to Pati Bhanjyang (1,770m), a picturesque village with excellent mountain views, from where it heads north through brahmin and chhetri villages to reach the Sherpa village of Thakuni Bhanjyang.

A steep incline and a further 200-metre climb through a stairway leads you to the top of Jhogin Danda (2,470 m). Your day comes to an end on reaching Gul Bhanjyang.
5 hours Eco lodge
An uphill journey from Gul Bhanjyang leads to another pass at 2,620 m.The trail steadily rises through oak forests while offering excellent views of mountains and the Helambu Valley. Following a ridgeline, the trail continues to Magen Goth from where the view of Langtang and Gosaikunda peaks is stunning.

Your final destination of the day is Tharipati (3,490 m). Today's trail is considered one of the best ridge-line walks in Nepal. The trail to Gosaikunda branches off north-west from here. There is a steep incline above the village that leads to a hilltop offering panoramic views of the Langtang Range. Stay overnight in a lodge.
6 hours Guest house
Take the route east from Tharipati after breakfast. The trail rapidly descends down a ravine through a small Sherpa village of Malemchigaon (2,530 m). It moves further downhill all the way to Malenchi Khola before the long climb on the other side of the valley starts.

Tarkeghyang is the largest village in the Helambu region. Located at an altitude of 2,620 m, Tarkeghyang offers excellent views of Jugal and Numbur peaks. The narrow cobbled lanes and tightly packed houses of Tarkeghyang resemble the high-altitude villages of Mustang and Dolpo. Tarkeghyang also boasts an 18th century gompa. This village is popularly known as Helambu.
4 hours Guest house
The journey to Shermathang takes around four hours.The trails gently descend through a beautiful forest and travels through a relatively even surface to reach the final destination of the day, Shermathang, which is also the centre of an important apple-growing area from where fantastic views of the Himalayas can be seen.
5-6 hours 3 Star Hotel at Kathmandu Suite Home
Continue your journey downhill through meadows and cultivated fields to reach Melamchi Pul Bazaar. The village is mostly inhabited by the Sherpa people. From here a bus will take you to Kathmandu. Check into your hotel on arrival.
