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. The Helambu trek landscape is classic Himalayan foothills, with plenty of dramatic rises and plummeting descents. While trekking, we pass through Langtang National park which inhabits a wealth of rare birds, wildlife and unique plants and flowers rhododendron and bamboo forests, view majestic waterfalls, get magnificent glimpses of snowy Langtang Lirung, and visit the holy lakes of Gosainkunda. The great Himalayan scenery at the border with Tibet and monasteries make a trek to the region an enthralling experience.
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. The valley offers pine forest, slow-moving rivers and swift mountain streams, rugged rock and snowcapped peaks, grassy downs and meadows strewn with daisies and wild primulas. This makes the Langtang Helambu Trek an experience you will never forget.
