The short and popular Helambu Circuit Trekking in the Langtang region offers the breathtaking sceneries of the Himalayas and terraced landscape, and ethnic cultural activities. Also known as “Yolmo Heritage Trek,” the route passes through the historically Yolmo region.  The trek goes through the Shivapuri National Park in the beginning and through the Langtang National Park.  The trek to Helambu Valley begins from Sundarijal, after a short drive west of Kathmandu.  Passing wonderful Mulkharka, you reach to Chisapani, which is a beautiful place to stay for the night.  The trail passes beautiful rhododendron, pine, and oak forests, and through Brahmin, Tamang, and Sherpa villages.  In these villages, we will find incredible hospitality.  Along the trail, we will also be exposed to Buddhist monasteries, religious monuments, caves and pilgrimage sites.    Even from the low altitude, we are able to see excellent views of mountains that including the Langtang Range, Dorje Lakpa, Gauri Shankar, Dom Blanc, Ganesh Himal, Manaslu and even Everest if it is a clear day.  The area is also home to beautiful flora and fauna.

This short and exciting Helambu Circuit Trek is an ideal trek, suitable for seniors and children alike.  Additionally, the trail does not reach as high of altitude as found in other treks in the region.  As is the case more most treks in the area, Spring and Autumn are the best seasons for the Helambu Circuit Trek package.  Ascent Holidays arranges the trek with complete management, including TIMS card. Please, feel free to contact us for the detailed information.
