If you have limited time and want to enjoy that hard-earned break, the Helambu trek can be the perfect place for a short introduction to trekking in Nepal. Besides offering stunning mountain views of the Jugal Himal and Rolwaling ranges, Helambu also allows you to observe Tibetan Buddhism and Sherpa culture in a very short period.

The trek across Helambu never crosses the 3,000-meter mark, which is why you won’t be needing those extra days of acclimatization and previous hiking experience to complete this trip. Your trek starts in Sundarijal, which is only 45 minutes away from Kathmandu. From Sundarijal you’ll follow a trail that passes through forests, suspension bridges, and several peaceful villages as you walk right across Helambu. Among these villages, Tarke Gyang and Sermathang have some very interesting Gompas (monasteries). You can also see the sunrise over the Himalayas from Sermathang and the sunset, when seen from there, is quite extraordinary too. After six days of trekking, this short but adventurous trip comes to an end in Melamchi Bazaar.

Even at the height of the season in October, Helambu will have considerably fewer trekkers than other commercial trekking destinations. If you’re looking for a quiet and crowd-free environment, well, look no further than the Helambu trek.
