Nepal, a gem country in Asia, is a land of breathtaking peaks, raw natural beauty, and iconic traditional villages. If you have been searching for an easy and short trek that can serve all of those highlights, Helambu Village Trek by Sabbatical Explore Nepal is one to opt for.
Located in the Langtang Region of Nepal, Helambu Village Trek is one of the awe-inspiring short treks to do. The trek goes about the Helambu Village, home to the Indigenous Hyolmo people and many Buddhist monasteries. Anyone who does this trek gets to experience traditional village life and pure natural beauty. It is just a fantastic experience to have in your memories and mind for the rest of your life.
Helambu Village Trek begins just outside Kathmandu, from Sundarijal, one of the entrances to the bold Langtang Region. Traversing through the woods of Shivapuri National Park, pinpointing the Chisapani Peak, the trek takes you into the beautiful Helambu Region. Moreover, one on the trek’s trail can view peaks like Ganesh Himal, Gaurishankar, Langtang Lirung, etc.
As said earlier, the iconic villages of Tamang, Sherpa, and Hyolmo people will also come along. And that is how and where a trekker will get to know the region’s lifestyle and culture. The trek is one of the easiest treks to do in Nepal; the pinpoint of the trek is just around 3,500m(Tharepati). Anyone who is not a high-altitude trekker can choose this trek to gain some experience on that ground.
In a nutshell, Helambu Village Trek is perfect for those who do not have much time to trek in Nepal and much experience for a high-elevation trek. In 6 days of the trek, you’ll know what it feels like to walk in the Himalayas around the traditional villages of Nepal.

The adventure to Helambu Village will kick off with a drive out of the city’s chaos. We’ll reach Sundarijal after a short drive which is at the foothills of Shivapuri National Park. Taking a walk through the greenery of the park, we will climb to the top of Chisapani.
It will be a walk of 4 to 5 hours to cross a Tamang settlement of Mulkhara. We will have a short pause at the village before continuing the trek to reach Chisapani. Upon reaching Chisapani, we’ll enjoy a lovely evening view of mountains and hills. Overnight in Chisapani.
From Tharepati, we’ll take a walk to Tarkeghyang, a lovely Sherpa Village in the Helambu Region. This day will bring us closer to the communities of the region to know their culture and lifestyle.
