Helambu trek in Nepal offers great scenery, small Sherpa villages, forests and terraced rice fields.
Besides this the climate in this area is very nice and the elevation is not as high as in other treks.
This area ,because of its low elevation and the Sherpa villages, make sit an interesting 6 days loop.
Starting with a short drive from Kathmandu to Sundarijal the trail to Helambu climbs on to the Shivapuri ridge from where there are sweeping views of the great central Himalayas.
Following a ridge-line the trek heads north to Thare Pati before turning east to Melemchi Gaon and Tarke Gyang the principle villages of this area.
From here we visit Shermathang before descending to the Melamchi River to end our trek with a drive Melamchi Bazaar back to Kathmandu.
