Trekking to the valley of Helambu between Sundarijal and Langtang National Park is short and easy. There are numerous monasteries, rhododendron forests, spectacular views of the mountains and unspoiled culture of the Sherpas in this trekking route.

The trek, as the name suggests, is rather a cultural excursion than just an expedition among the mountains and glaciers. Tarkeghyang, the biggest monastery, is the major attraction of this trek. Helambu Buddhist Religious trek is one of the best trekking destinations of the Langtang region that is suitable for a family. The valley of Helambu is famous for its natural beauties, culture of the habitants and its pleasant climate.

And according to Buddhist legends, Helambu is one of the seven hidden valleys where Buddhist monks practice meditation. The placement of numerous Buddhist monasteries among the enchanting landscape and dense rhododendron forest makes the trek worthwhile. Helambu trek is one of the most convenient treks which is easily accessible and closer to Kathmandu and doesn’t take the trekkers to a high altitude. Along with getting a closer look of the natural beauties, one can get to know the Tibetan Buddhist culture, tradition, customs and festivals in depth which is why the trek itself has been named as the Helambu Buddhist Religious trek. This trekking trail is never crowded and is ideal for trekkers with limited time and for someone who wants to combine a cultural experience in a trekking expedition.
