Starts at: Chisapani Ends at: Melamchi
Trek Region: Langtang Transport: Public Bus
Duration: 7 days Trip Grade: Gentle
Max Altitude: 3650 m/ 11975 ft Accomodation: Teahouse

The week long Helambu trek starts just an hours drive from Kathmandu at the beautiful Shivapuri National Park.

This is a relatively low altitude trek along a less busy trekking route through temperate forests, green valleys, rhododendron forests, Tamang and Sherpa villages and Buddhist monasteries.

The views of the mountains are stunning and include Langtang, ManasluGanesh HimalRolwaling, and Gauri Shankar.

There are options as to whether to hike to Melamchi, adding another day’s trek and take a short drive back to Kathmandu or take a slightly different route at the end of the trip, with one less overnight, that involves a long drive back to Kathmandu.

With the highest point of this trek being Tharepati Pass at 3,650m with its magnificent views of Dorje Lakpa, Gauri Shankar, Langsisa and other snow-capped mountains and with the warmer climate; grassy meadows; atmospheric forests; torrential rivers and friendly people, this is a stunning trek for those with less time or do not wish to trek at high altitudes.
