short trek Helambu
"The man who moves mountains begins by carrying small stones."
about this route
This route in the Helambu region is a short trek nearby Kathmandu Valley. Despite being so close to Kathmandu, the Helambu region remains relatively un-spoilt. Besides the hyolmo culture of high mountain people, the company of green rhododendron and bamboo forests, majestic waterfalls, and snow-capped Himalayas make the trek among the most diverse treks near Kathmandu. The great Himalayan scenery at the border with Tibet and monasteries make a trek to this region an interesting experience.
On the first day of this trek we enter Shivapuri National Park. From there we trek to Chisopani, Kutumsang, Thadepati, Sermathang and Melamchi Pul Bazar. The route passes through thick mountain forests with great views over the Himalayas. We will also trek along rice terraces and a number of beautiful Buddhist monasteries.
