Trekking In Nepal

1. Kathmandu- Langtang (10 days):
An interesting 200km drive from Kathmandu takes us to Dhunche to the north of Kathmandu. The trek begins at Dhunche. This trails leads us through forests of pine and rhododendron through the rich greenery of yak pastures for which the area is famous. We reach the Tibetan hamlet of Ghoda Tabela and proceed towards the Langtang valley at an altitude of 3,000m. This valley is surrounded by many peaks and glaciers and is dominated by Spectacular Mountain and glacial scenery. Langtang National Park (1243) sq. km. is also an alpine valley and the home of the musk deer and the snow leopard. The return journey descends through the same route to Dhuche.

2. Langtang – Gosaikunda Pass Helambu (15 days):
This trek begins at Dhunche. It is similar to the Langtang valley trek except that return takes a different route passing through an entirely different valley. We trek down to Shebru from the Langtang valley. The trail affords excellent views of Ganesh Himal. The route then deviates and we reach the Hindu holy lakes at Gosaikunda, a famous pilgrimage site. Here we have superb views of the central and eastern Himalayan peaks. The trail proceeds to the Thare Pati pass, and then drops down to the picturesque Sherpa village of Helambu. The entire Helambu region 72 km north-east of Kathmandu has several highland Tamang and Sherpa villages scattered on both sides of the Melamche Khola (river).

3. Helambu Trek (6-9 days):
These are medium length treks, not so hard. They lead into the homeland of the Helambu Sherpa people. Helambu is an appropriate destination for a pleasure trek. The trek to Helambu can start with an hours drive from Kathmandu to Sundarijal or 4 hours drive to Melamchi and also end the trek in either one way. Beyond the Melamchi Khola forests are lush and plentiful and the penetrating into the Buddhist culture of the region makes a very interesting experience in one of the country’s finest trekking destinations which does not require the back breaking rig ours.

4. Panch Pokhari (9-10 days):
This trek begins at Barabise, 3 hours drive to the east of Kathmandu. We trek through a beautiful rhododendron forest and ascend gradually to pine clad slopes. We reach the famous five lakes for which this treks is named. This lovely spot affords spectacular views of Gauri Shanker Himal and its surrounding peaks. Yak ranches can also be seen in summer-when the pastures are green.
