Helambu Circuit Trek

Helambu Circuit Trek is relatively low altitude trek and one of the most convenient short treks of its kind—close to Kathmandu but obviously quite unspoiled. If you want get close to the Nepalese rural lifestyle while enjoying the panorama of Himalayas, Helambu Circuit Trek is unrivalled for sure. Helambu Trek provides you an excellent opportunity to explore the typical hyolmo culture, wonderful scenic grandeur, and pleasant climate. We encounter and explore several highland Sherpa and Tamang villages scattered on both sides of Melamchi Khola.

We begin Helambu Circuit Trek with our short drive to Sundarijal, which is also an entry point for Shivapuri National Park. From Sundarijal, we pass through the pristine forests exploring the rich wildlife. We eventually reach the Shivapuri Hilltop which serves you the wonderful views of entire Kathmandu valley. Descending further from the top, we reach at Chisapani. Chisapani is a beautiful place offering you the wonderful sunrise with the spectacular views of Ganesh Himal. As the journey progresses, you visit the homes of Brahmins, and ethnic Tamang and Sherpa people. We pass through the villages of Kutumsang, Tharepati, Tarkegyang, Sermathang and Melamchigaon enjoying the scenic grandeur and pleasant climate of Helambu region. You will find the Helambu Sherpa cultures quite distinct and different from that of Solukhumbu Sherpas. Helambu area showcases the rural country life Nepal and the diverse biological landscape. Helambu Circuit Trek is obviously an exciting journey. So take your time and disappear into the beauty of Himalayas.

Day 03: Drive to Sundarijal (1 Hour) and trek to Chisapani (2472m) – 4 Hours
Leaving the bustling metropolitan center of Kathmandu, we head north towards Shivapuri National Park passing Bauddhanath and Gokarna Forest along the way. After approx. an hour of drive, we reach at Sundarijal from where we start trekking and enter the National Park forest. We start out trek through pristine forests passing the occasional river. After walking for around three hours, we reach at the top of the ridge that makes up Shivapuri Park from where we can look back over the entire Kathmandu valley. Pressing onwards, we descend to Chisapani for the night.

Day 04: Trek from Chisapani to Kutumsang (2446m) – 7 Hours
We continue our trekking towards Kutumsang, passing through classic, delightful village with some shops and good mountain views. We walk uphill and downhill and pass through Gulbhanjyang, the Sherpa, Gurung, and Tamang settlement. Gulbhanjyang showcases the cultural aspect of local ethnic people. Crossing the jungle and terraced fields, we eventually reach Kutumsang, where we stay overnight at a local guesthouse.

Day 05: Trek from Kutumsang to Tharepati (3650m) – 6 Hours
From Kutumsang, we climb up in a steep and eroded trail passing through the rhododendron and fir forest. The beautiful sunset view awaits you as you reach Tharepati. Enjoy the nice views of Jugal Himal, Numbur Himal, and of course the awesome views of Helambu Valley right below you. Stay overnight at a local guesthouse.

Day 06: Trek from Tharepati to Tarkegyang (2560m) – 6 Hours
Descending down to Melamchi River and crossing the river to climb up to Sherpa settlements, we make our way up to Tarkegyang today. Tarkegyang, a beautiful Sherpa village itself, possesses one of the oldest and biggest Buddhist monasteries. We stay overnight at a local guesthouse.

Day 07: Trek from Tarkegyang to Sermathang (2610m) – 4 Hours
Our trail is going to be relatively easier from Takegyang as we have to pass through some flat land with lush vegetation. We'd eventually penetrate the village called Sermathang where some ancient Buddhist monasteries are waiting for you. We stay overnight at a guesthouse.

Day 08: Trek from Sermathang to Melamchi Pul Bazaar (860m) – 4 Hours
Gradually descending all the way to Melamchi Pul Bazaar, we pass through several picturesque meadows and cultivated fields. As you pass by several villages, you can even get an opportunity to intermingle with the locals we encounter. You can explore much about their lifestyle, and obviously their cultures and traditions as well. We stay overnight at a guesthouse.

Day 09: Drive from Melamchi Pul Bazaar to Kathmandu
After having your breakfast, it's time to start our drive along a bumpy gravel road from Melamchi Pul Bazaar to Lamidanda. We then follow the metaled road until we reach Kathmandu.

What Client Say

I have made a trip to Helambu circuit with Cold Feet in March 2009 and had a great time. Our Guide Suman did fantastic job. I will recommend Cold Feet to any of my friends and family who are traveling to Nepal. Tom Manzo Tucson Arizona

November 2013 - I just returned from the most amazing trek to Annapurna Base Camp with ColdFeet! Gopi and his staff were so helpful before I even arrived in Nepal and continue to be during my stay in this amazing country! Sunaina was an awesome, fun and caring guide. I would highly recommend ColdFeet to anyone looking for tours/treks in the Nepal area! jackie o. CANADA

Hey We just came back from a trip to langtang. Organization was very efficient, we planned the trip in two days and just went right away to Langtang! Beautiful place to see, good accommodation and very friendly guide, thanks Coldfeet! Nicolas Lacombe FRANCE

Great trek to Gosainkund lake arranged at short notice by Cold Feet, followed by rafting and cultural visits. We turned up at the desk in Thamel and Gopi organised all the rest for us at very short notice. Great guiding and even evening entertainment with puzzles and tricks. John Edwards turnipedwards@virginmedia.com

Today and yesterday I had an amazing two day sight seeing tour, in Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, Patan and lots of other places, organized by ColdFeet! Unfortunately I could not finish my original trek to ME base camp because I got ill and had to get back. Waiting for my friends, the lovely people from ColdFeet helped me get back on my feet and made my trip - although slightly different as planned - one I won't ever forget en enjoyed very much! So... thanks! Ilona Zwolle, The Netherlands

What I like best about the team at ColdFeet is not only are they knowledgeable guides and leaders, but they have the ability to help you get under the skin and really experience this wonderful country. Not only did we did have a great time trekking the Annapurnas and rafting the Trisuli, but we left Nepal feeling we had made lifelong friends. Tom, South London Tom email.tom.griffin@gmail.com

I am now in my final year at university in England but a few summers back I was lucky enough to be part of a trek adventure in the Everest region organised by ColdFeet. Gopi, who was in charge, lead 50 Wimbledon Explorer Scouts for roughly ten days. The trip was incredibly well organised and we all felt very safe under his and his support staffs' guidance. Not only this but because of Gopi's extensive experience in the region we were really able to make the most of everything that was around us. I would enthusiastically recommend ColdFeet to anyone looking to trek in Nepal, not least because aswell as being professional and reliable all the staff at ColdFeet are friendly and do their upmost to make sure everyone really has fun. I look forward to any opportunity to be in Nepal with ColdFeet again. Oliver Young London

A really great trek, well led and organised by friendly, fun and frankly awesome guides. The most beautiful place I have ever been to. Thanks so much Gopi! Benedict Phillips Streatham Common, London, UK
