Helambu Village Trek

8 Days 7 Nights

Overview

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.

Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival in Kathmandu

You’ll make your arrival at Kathmandu Airport. Our representatives from Sabbatical Explore Nepal will be at the airport for your hassle-less arrival. After your arrival, the team will lead you to your hotel in Kathmandu. You’ll take a rest at the hotel. Later, you can go on free wandering around the city, if only time allows. Overnight in the hotel.   

Day 2: Drive from Kathmandu to Sundarijal and Trek to Chisapani

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. 

Day 3: Trek from Chisapani to Kutumsang

We will wake up to another lovely view in Chisapani. Having our breakfast, we’ll start the day by joining a descending trek through the meadows and rice terraces. The hike will take us to Pathi Bhanjyang, a small village. Next, we trek ahead to Gul Bhanjyang, a famous pass of the trek. Enjoying some more views on the pass, we will make a descent to take us to Kutumsang, our day’s stop after a walk of 6 to 7 hours.

Day 4: Trek from Kutumsang to Tharepati

We will leave Kutumsang behind by moving towards northern hills and mountains. Along the track, the trek will bestow us some of the best views of the snowy peaks. Moving further, we will climb a steep hill full of rhododendron and fir trees with no settlements at all. A little later, we will reach Yurin Danda for some more of the mountain views. And from there, we will reach Magen Goth, a place of few lodges by a breathtaking mountain view. We’ll settle for the night.

Day 5: Trek from Tharepati to Tarkeghyang

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. It will be a trek in the direction of East, descending through Melamchi Village. In the village, we’ll explore some important and historical Buddhist monasteries, stupas, and shrines.  Out of Melamchi, we will start moving towards Tarkeghyang. The total trek of 6 hours will end in the village. We will get to know people of the village who belong to Hyolmo community. Overnight in the hamlet. 

Day 6: Trek from Tarkeghyang to Sermanthang

Now, we’ll head towards Sermanthang, another must-visit village of the region. Without gaining much altitude, we will trek through the deep forest, by streams and rivers. Along the day, several Sherpa villages like Parachin and Gangyul will come along. At the end of the trek of 5 hours, we’ll reach the destination popular for monasteries and spirituality. Alongside, we’ll see awe-inspiring mountain views from the village. Overnight in the village.

Day 7: Trek from Sermanthang to Melamchi Bazaar and Drive to Kathmandu

This will be the last day of Helambu Village Terk in the Helambu Region. We’ll make it worth every second by exploring the region. Firstly, we’ll have a lovely trek of 3 hours to Melamchi Bazaar through many traditional villages and their terraced fields. And from Melamchi Bazaar, we’ll join a drive of 4 hrs to Kathmandu. Overnight in Kathmandu.

I went to Upper Mustang Trek with them, which I can vividly remember even after 2 months now. I found out about this team from one of my friends. I'm glad he suggested it. Everything went well during the trek. The guide was so humble and good. He showed me things that I could never have if I was traveling solo. I feel a deep connection with the landscapes of Mustang. Thanks to the guide and the team. The trip was a great experience!

We had a great time with Shiva and his team, from being picked up from the airport to being dropped off there, everything was just perfect!  We had "culture tour and a trip to Shaman Village" Hiking.  Got to see many cultural sites around Kathmandu and was an incredible experience in monastery visiting monks. The program was great and fantastic as far as we wanted away from the tourist crowds, all accommodations were good. It’s really a great opportunity to explore Nepal as local. 
The “TeamSabbatical” were very helpful and friendly as well. When we have a questions or a problem can find someone on the spot immediately to find a answer and solve it. We highly recommend the trip Meet the Monks with Boudhanath Stupa tour, and the Kathmandu Cultural tour together.

The trip was well worth it! I was in Nepal last Autumn with the team of Shiva and Kiran, whom I knew from my colleagues. I was confused about where to go. But my expert friends, Shiva and Kiran, suggested I do their best-selling Nepal Panorama Tour. I'm glad they suggested it. I am not a hiking person, my body does not let me be. So I went on a tour of Kathmandu, Pokhara, and Chitwan. In Kathmandu, I saw a lot of historical and time-traveling sites. Pokhara was so much vivid by Fewa Lake; I enjoyed the boat riding there. And Chitwan was unimaginably full of nature. I saw rhinos, elephants, birds, crocodiles. I was expecting the Bengal Tiger, but luck did not favor me. Except for that, Chitwan treated me quite well. Overall, the trip felt so smooth and rewarding. I traveled around Nepal panoramically. Thanks!
