5-Day Hiking Tour to Helambu from Kathmandu

Helambu is the closest ‘getaway’ to alpine weather from Kathmandu. The tranquil and unspoiled nature, cool weather and beautiful views of the eastern Himalayan range makes it a perfect hill station destination. Quick access on foot and road add easy accessibility to the region known for its apple orchards and culture of Hyolmo (Sherpa) and Tamang ethnic communities. Their villages at higher elevation offer a very different experience from other short treks. In the lower parts of Helambu there are Brahmins, chettri and Newar villages. All these mixed qualities attribute to Helambu a cool destination.
