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.

“We trekked for 6-8 hours a day and covered the route in 10 days. Days 3 (poonhill climb), 9 and 10 (800 floors descent) were the most challenging. It's a very scenic trekking route and because of its popularity, the facilities along the way were pretty good and more than what I expected such as guest houses with wifi, western food and hot showers. Come prepared for steps; there are tons of them.”

“Me and my friend did the Everest Trek with Icicles after exchanging a couple emails about which trip would be best for us. We decided on Everest because it seemed like a great way to view the highest Himalayas, alpine surroundings. I had done trekking few times before but never above 5000m.”

“Annapurna base camp trek is wonderful experience for me and my kids. I am certain my kids are left with memories they will always treasure. No words or photos can describe the ten days we spent trekking to Annapurna Base Camp and back. It was awesome, it was incredibly hard for my kids but they forgot the hardship quickly as soon as they gazed up to the peaks. It was so icy cold at times because we trekked at the end of December. We laughed so much and sometimes we nearly cried. We stared at the mule trains carrying all sorts of logistics up and down the mountain trails and wondered at the strong porters. We sweated and gasped up the mountain stairways. We feared for our lives on the slippery slopes coming down from Machhapuchhre Base Camp and we came back to life in the pools of the Jhinu hot springs. And through all of this Shiva and Raj guarded us with their amazing knowledge and understanding, never-ending patience and wonderful sense of humor.”
