Helambu Valley Trek

Helambu Valley Trek

The Langtang Helambu Trek is an awesome adventure that combines trekking in spectacular Himalayan Mountains with the chance to experience the lives and cultures of a diverse group of ethnic Nepalese people. While trekking, we pass through rhododendron and bamboo forests, see an abundance of wildlife, view majestic waterfalls, get magnificent glimpses of snowy Langtang Lirung, and visit the holy lakes of Gosainkunda.

The Langtang Helambu Trek is an ideal trek for those with time constraints and who may simply not want to go on one of the longer Himalayan treks. Again, along with classic Himalayan scenery, one has the opportunity to get a glimpse into the unique cultures and spiritual aspects of Nepalese people such as the Sherpa, Tamang, and Newar ethnic groups. This makes the Langtang Helambu Trek an experience you will never forget.
