Around Helambu trekking starts from the outskirts of Kathmandu valley either from the Sundarijal or Melamchi Pul. Helambu trekking offers wide range of culture and natural beauties. The main ethnic peoples living in Helambu region are Tamangs, Bhotias and Yolmus. Around Helambu trekking is comparatively shortest and easiest trek available nearby Kathmandu.

Despite being so close with Capital city of Nepal, Helambu region is still categorized as unspoiled trekking destination of Nepal.  The most notable thing of Helambu region is its culture i.e. Hyolmo culture.

Helambu trekking lies around the Langtang region and the climatic condition is much favorable for any range of trekkers. This is due to fact that the elevation for trekking lies between 800m to 3600m and temperature remains warmer. Moreover, the trekking offers the visit of the Langtang valley which is aptly called ” the valley of glaciers”. The Langtang valley offers pine forest, slow moving rivers and swift mountain streams, rugged rock and snow-capped peaks, grassy downs and meadows strewn with daisies and wild primulas.

The most important benefit of around Helambu trekking is that the trekking region is less crowded & free from noise in comparison to the Annapurna trek and some parts of the Everest treks.

What does grading (Easy, Moderate, Adventurous, Challenging) means?

“Grading” is a term used for rating treks based on difficulty. We have four grade of trekking in Nepal i.e. Easy, Moderate, Adventurous and Challenging- the challenge in terms of both technicality and geography increases as we move higher in that order.

Easy Treks

No previous trek experience and any physical preparation are required to attempt this trek. An interest in walking will be enough to take up such treks. Such treks usually vary from 2 days hike to 5 days trekking and can reach up to an altitude of 3000 m.

Moderate Treks

Moderate Treks need at least 6-7 hours of daily walking every day which crosses 4000 m above high altitude passes, and long and exhausting walks through often rough trails, rocks and boulders.

Adventurous Treks

Adventurous treks required previous trekking experience and technical knowledge. Besides this 6-7 hours walking through rough trails and crossing high passes as high as 5000 m.

Challenging Treks

These are long days trekking with long hours challenging walks passing through high altitude above 5000 m, difficult terrains and glacier and snow walking. No doubt you need to be mentally and physically fit and in excellent health condition.

What is altitude sickness?

Altitude sickness is also known as Acute Mountain Sickness which generally occurs when people ascend too quickly in altitudes of over 3000 m. Altitude sickness is the major problem when you are trekking in Nepal. And it is really necessary for you to study the causes, symptoms and treatment of the attitude sickness before trekking and climbing in Nepal. Average of three peoples per year dies due to the Altitude sickness.

While trekking and climbing in Nepal it is necessary adjust your schedule for trekking in above 3.000 meters. It is better if you climb no more than 400 meters per day when you are climbing above 3000 meters. If you fail to allow time for adaptation, you may develop the symptoms of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). You can easily care it with a day’s rest or if ignored can lead to death. So before trekking in Nepal especially in higher altitude, basic awareness of AMS is necessary for safe trek.

What happens if there’s an emergency?

Generally, you are not likely to face any emergency but if the situation goes serious, then you can send word to the nearby village with radio service for a helicopter evacuation. It can cost you up to $1500-$2500 (even more depending upon the situation) for a helicopter evacuation and it requires a guarantee of payment before the helicopter takes off. If you register with your embassy, then this process can be done in great speed. However, if the case is not so serious, then you can find some health posts or air field for check-up. So, we recommend you to have necessary travel insurance which can cover all those expenses.

Is there an emergency contact number?

Yes. You can dial on 9751000991 anytime from anywhere. If you are using international number you need to put our country code 00977 or if you are dialing from local number in Kathmandu, doesn’t need to put any code.

Do I need to tip my guide and porters? How much would that be?

This is very difficult thing to determine. We have seen everything from 10USD to 500 USD per person for guides and porters. Tipping is not required, but a small way to show your guides and local porters thanks for their help. The level of the tip should reflect the level of personal involvement with your guide.

How can I book my trip in advance?

If you are traveling in high tourist season i.e. between October to November and March to April, you have to book the tour six to ten months before. Because of the limitation of the infrastructure in tourism industry in Nepal , you are asked to book the trip in advance.

What is the mode of payment?

We accept major credit cards such as VISA, Master and American Express. You can use any of above credit card to pay us. You can also pay us either by Western Union Money Transfer or PayPal or Direct Bank Transfer.

I want to extend my trip any recommendation?

Yes! Just let us know your interest; we can customize package according to your need. You can have other activities such as raftingexpeditionbird watching tours, jungle safari and many other adventurous activities in Nepal.
