 14-Day LANGTANG & HELAMBU Lodge Trek

Easy to moderate Helambu area trek to the Sherpa villages of Melamche Gaon, Tarkegyang and Shermathang.

A Pleasant Hike To The Sherpa Villages Of Helambu.

The Sherpa villages of Helambu due north of Kathmandu valley presents an easy getaway. This area because of its low elevation and the Sherpa villages make it an interesting 6 day loop. Starting with a short drive from Kathmandu to Sundarijal the trail to Helambu climbs on to the Shivapuri ridge from where there are sweeping views of the central Himalayas. Following a ridge-line the trek heads north to Thare Pati before turning east to Melemchi Gaon and Tarke Gyang the principle villages of this area. From here we visit Shermathang before descending to the Melamchi river to end our trek with a drive Melamchi Bazaar back to Kathmandu.

Moderate trek through the Helambu villages between altitudes of 1,370m/4,500ft to 3,490m/11,500ft. Accommodation in comfortable lodges run by local families. The trek starts with a drive from Kathmandu and includes all meals, services of experienced trek guide and porters to carry luggage. Clients carry a light day-pack only and walk at their own pace.
