Langtang Region

Easy access from Kathmandu means that both Langtang and Helambu are favored trekking regions for travelers with less time to spare.Langtang, in particular, has the added advantage of offering wilderness style treks with the true spirit of adventure, because many of its trails are still not greatly frequented. Many trekkers take the road from Kathmandu to Trisuli and Dhunche to begin hiking in this beautiful, predominantly Alpine region.Langtang admittedly cannot boast any of the giant Himalayan peaks, but nonetheless its scenery is just as spectacular and photogenic as that on the more popular trails. The Lang tang people are from the large and diverse Tamang clan; they are Buddhist in religion and often use the surname ‘Lama.’A visit to the Langtang Valley is a great opportunity to explore the colorful Tamang culture, as well as to climb some smaller peaks and explore glaciers at a more comfortable altitude than most of the other trekking regions.

Our Langtang itineraries incorporate a rest day at Kyanjin Gompa, to allow time to explore the extensive glacier system in the higher valley.There is much scope to vary treks in this region and one popular choice is to extend the hike through to the sacred lake of Gosainkund (4300 m), which is said to have been created by Shiva, along with the two smaller adjoining lakes, when he jabbed his trisul (trident) into the ground to form the headwaters of the Trisuli river. Treks in Langtang and Helambu can be very effectively combined, by crossing the Laurebina Pass near Gosainkund.Helambu, again, is easily accessible from Kathmandu, being located in the Melemchi Khola valley north-east of the capital and south of Langtang.There are some beautiful forests here, as well as some interesting settlements, principally populated by Sherpa people. However, these Sherpas differ from the Everest region branch of the caste in language, dress and family lineage!

    We at ‘Adventure Himalayan Travels’ present 11-days long moderately arduous trekking package into the exquisite region of Helambu which positions itself to the north east of Kathmandu Valley, about 75km far from Kathmandu.

Thus our Helambu Treks will begin from Sundarijal(1350m) and convey us into the wild and thrilling excitement of exploring the wild woods where diverse wild faunas lure and plethora of rhododendrons bloom, crossing the rivulets, having 180 degree views of snow-clad mountains of Langtang Ri, Ganesh Himal, Lang Sisa, Chorkari Ri and visualizing the local culture and livelihood especially at Tamang Villages of Chisopani and Sermanthang that has been unaltered throughout all these years. Swimming in Melamchi Khola is yet another highlight. Helambu Trek concludes as we drive back to our hotel in Kathmandu from Melamchi Bazaar.
