Trip Highlights

  • On the least trek area of Helambu with its rich old culture and tradition
  • Just beyond north of Kathmandu valley rim in a magnificent country
  • Enrich with flora and fauna of rhododendron, pines, oaks and magnolia forest
  • Panoramic views of massif Ganesh-Langtang and Jugal Himal Mountain range
  • Visiting the villages of forgotten Hyalmo tribes which are few in Himalaya region

Helambu Cultural Trek is a specially designed trek route to offer you the best of serene and peaceful Langtang. About 80 kilometers north of Kathmandu, it is a popular trekking region in central Nepal famous for its captivating beauty, rich culture, and diverse landscapes. Home to the native inhabitants called Hyolmo People, Helambu trek is also often known as Hyolmo Heritage Trek.

Helambu Cultural Trek is a low-altitude trek that is most suitable for those people who cannot spare great lengths of days to travel to foothills of eastern and western Himalayans. If you want to witness and be the part of rural alpine Nepalese lifestyle while also enjoying the panoramic views of peaks like Langtang Lirung Ganesh Himal Massif, and DorjeLakpa, Helambu trek is the perfect choice for you. It offers you with rare chance to explore the unique and ancient Hyolmo culture amidst the picturesque setting. During the trek, we will come across several highland Sherpa and Tamang villages dotting both sides of Melamchi river.

The natives of the region, the Tamangs and Sherpas are original of Tibetan origin, whose culture and traditions date back to hundreds of years. Due to the far-flung location and remoteness, the lifestyle and settlements have not changed much even in the 21st century. During our trek, we will be able to see and stay in intricately made stone houses with carved windows, doors, and porches. The true Himalayan identity of the Hyolmo people is also reflected in the beautiful traditional dresses and boots they adorn. Moreover, if our trek is scheduled around Buddhist festivals like Lhosar and Buddha Purnima, we will have the rare chance to be part of these ancient festivals and rites. The region used to be a part of the ancient trade route to Tibet, which is still reflected in its way of life. To date, most people are sheep and yak herders, with some growing hardy grain and vegetables. As you witness the uniqueness and grandeur of the Helambu Sherpa culture, you will notice that it is much more different than the mainstream, popular culture and traditions of the Solukhumbu Sherpas of eastern Nepal.

The eleven-day long Helambu cultural trek commences from Sundarijal to Chisapani. The route traverses all the way to MelamchiPul Bazar blending all the wonderful natural, cultural, and adventurous heritages in between. At first, the trail descends through oak forests, passes through parts of Shivapuri National Park and continues to beautiful hamlets like Tarke Gyang and Sermathang. While descending, we will return back through picturesque villages of Tarke Gyang and Sermathang. We will come a full circle when we will trek back to MelamchiPul Bazar while returning.

In this way, Helambu Cultural Trek perfectly encapsulates a wholesome and fulfilling trekking experience that comprises the best of both cultural and natural beauty the Helambu region has to offer. It gives you a rare chance to experience and be part of rich Hyolmo culture while living in the close vicinity of inspiring silver peaks.

Helambu Cultural Trekking it was short but worth the views and culture of the local Hyalmo tribe of Helambu. The guide informed us as one of the fewer tribal people of Nepal, close in between Sherpa and Tamang tribes. Enjoyed the walk from Sundarijal with grand sunrise and sunset views from Chisapani on the way to Helambu. Although a steep up to Kutumsang and Thadepati but worth the views overlooking Langtang and Jugal Himal range. Enjoyed exploring the lovely villages of Tarke Gyang and Sermathang enriched with impressive cultures of age old heritage of Buddhism religion. Thanks to all staff and guide including porters of Team Himalaya making the trip much enjoyable.

First of all thanks to Team Himalaya for making Helambu Cultural Trekking more exciting and worth the adventure. From the moment of arrival in Kathmandu and to our final departure, well taken of our health and safety.

What a remarkable experience throughout the walks, on least ventured areas of Helambu, we hardly encountered any trekkers. It was fun and enjoyable with less numbers of trekkers and not overcrowded, like in other popular trekking routes.

The villagers of Helambu was very friendly and allowed us to visit their nice house, decorated with beautiful wood carving. It was an amazing moment in Tarke Gyang and Sermathang visiting the old monasteries of great religious interest. The trek ended so soon without even knowing it, the best holidays after a long time. Thanks to Team Himalaya and the guide, as well the cheerful porters who was always present when we need it.

Trip Highlights

  • On the least trek area of Helambu with its rich old culture and tradition
  • Just beyond north of Kathmandu valley rim in a magnificent country
  • Enrich with flora and fauna of rhododendron, pines, oaks and magnolia forest
  • Panoramic views of massif Ganesh-Langtang and Jugal Himal Mountain range
  • Visiting the villages of forgotten Hyalmo tribes which are few in Himalaya region

Helambu Cultural Trek is a specially designed trek route to offer you the best of serene and peaceful Langtang. About 80 kilometers north of Kathmandu, it is a popular trekking region in central Nepal famous for its captivating beauty, rich culture, and diverse landscapes. Home to the native inhabitants called Hyolmo People, Helambu trek is also often known as Hyolmo Heritage Trek.

Helambu Cultural Trek is a low-altitude trek that is most suitable for those people who cannot spare great lengths of days to travel to foothills of eastern and western Himalayans. If you want to witness and be the part of rural alpine Nepalese lifestyle while also enjoying the panoramic views of peaks like Langtang Lirung Ganesh Himal Massif, and DorjeLakpa, Helambu trek is the perfect choice for you. It offers you with rare chance to explore the unique and ancient Hyolmo culture amidst the picturesque setting. During the trek, we will come across several highland Sherpa and Tamang villages dotting both sides of Melamchi river.

The natives of the region, the Tamangs and Sherpas are original of Tibetan origin, whose culture and traditions date back to hundreds of years. Due to the far-flung location and remoteness, the lifestyle and settlements have not changed much even in the 21st century. During our trek, we will be able to see and stay in intricately made stone houses with carved windows, doors, and porches. The true Himalayan identity of the Hyolmo people is also reflected in the beautiful traditional dresses and boots they adorn. Moreover, if our trek is scheduled around Buddhist festivals like Lhosar and Buddha Purnima, we will have the rare chance to be part of these ancient festivals and rites. The region used to be a part of the ancient trade route to Tibet, which is still reflected in its way of life. To date, most people are sheep and yak herders, with some growing hardy grain and vegetables. As you witness the uniqueness and grandeur of the Helambu Sherpa culture, you will notice that it is much more different than the mainstream, popular culture and traditions of the Solukhumbu Sherpas of eastern Nepal.

The eleven-day long Helambu cultural trek commences from Sundarijal to Chisapani. The route traverses all the way to MelamchiPul Bazar blending all the wonderful natural, cultural, and adventurous heritages in between. At first, the trail descends through oak forests, passes through parts of Shivapuri National Park and continues to beautiful hamlets like Tarke Gyang and Sermathang. While descending, we will return back through picturesque villages of Tarke Gyang and Sermathang. We will come a full circle when we will trek back to MelamchiPul Bazar while returning.

In this way, Helambu Cultural Trek perfectly encapsulates a wholesome and fulfilling trekking experience that comprises the best of both cultural and natural beauty the Helambu region has to offer. It gives you a rare chance to experience and be part of rich Hyolmo culture while living in the close vicinity of inspiring silver peaks.

Trip Reviews (2)

Helambu Cultural Trekking it was short but worth the views and culture of the local Hyalmo tribe of Helambu. The guide informed us as one of the fewer tribal people of Nepal, close in between Sherpa and Tamang tribes. Enjoyed the walk from Sundarijal with grand sunrise and sunset views from Chisapani on the way to Helambu. Although a steep up to Kutumsang and Thadepati but worth the views overlooking Langtang and Jugal Himal range. Enjoyed exploring the lovely villages of Tarke Gyang and Sermathang enriched with impressive cultures of age old heritage of Buddhism religion. Thanks to all staff and guide including porters of Team Himalaya making the trip much enjoyable.

First of all thanks to Team Himalaya for making Helambu Cultural Trekking more exciting and worth the adventure. From the moment of arrival in Kathmandu and to our final departure, well taken of our health and safety.

What a remarkable experience throughout the walks, on least ventured areas of Helambu, we hardly encountered any trekkers. It was fun and enjoyable with less numbers of trekkers and not overcrowded, like in other popular trekking routes.

The villagers of Helambu was very friendly and allowed us to visit their nice house, decorated with beautiful wood carving. It was an amazing moment in Tarke Gyang and Sermathang visiting the old monasteries of great religious interest. The trek ended so soon without even knowing it, the best holidays after a long time. Thanks to Team Himalaya and the guide, as well the cheerful porters who was always present when we need it.
