Langtang Helambu Trekking


    Langtang Helambu Trekking is easily accessible from Kathmandu because of its low elevation. The area offers adventure trekking, mountaineering as well as pilgrimage treks. The area is quite popular for learning Tibetan culture where you can see many monastery and ethnic groups and panoramic view of the mountain between Annapurna to Mt.Everest. North of Kathmandu valley lays Ganesh Himal and Langtang Lirung. Helambu is popular among the trekkers for its scenic grandeur & pleasant & favorable climate, located about 72 kilometres northeast of Kathmandu, is extending from north of Taramarang to the tree limit of the Gosainkunda Lake and lower slopes of Jugal Himal. Here the rare red pandas lurk in dense lichen-draped rhododendron thickets, heard of blue sheep graze the alpine meadows and lammergeyers glide over glaciated valleys amidst scenery of lofty Himalayan peaks. This trek starts from Sundarijal and ends in Melamchipul within eleven days so it is ideal for people with less time who do not wish to travel too far from the Kathmandu Valley.
