Helambu Circuit Trek

10 days


The Langtang region contains many trekking routes, and the Helambu Circuit is one of the easier trails. Consequently, it is good for beginning trekkers. The Circuit presents views of spectacular surroundings with panoramas of the Annapurna and Everest mountain ranges. The trek begins in Sundarijal. Visiting native Tamang villages along the route (Chisapani, Tharepati, Tarkegyang, Kutumsang etc.) is an added bonus of this trek. The incredible peak views include Dorje Lakpa Himal (6966 m, 22,854 ft.), Sisa Pangma Himal (8013 m, 26,289 ft.) Langtang Himal (7235 m, 23,736 ft.) and Chhapa Bhamare (5990 m, 19,652 ft.). Natural waterfalls and cultural sites, such as Buddhist cloisters and the Padma Sambhav Holi Cave are found on this route. The Helambu Circuit is very short and is designed chiefly for trekkers who have limited time.
