Overview on trekking Langtang Helambu:
Helambu trekking is one of the most accessible treks around Kathmandu, located in a region rich in low altitude ranging from Lauribina La Pass to the Melamchi valley. The trekking areas are inhabited by Hyolmos ethnicities, Tamang and Sherpas. You will observe the terraced rice fields and oak forests, Mount Langtang, Annapurna, Manaslu, and Everest.

Langtang trekking is close enough to the Kathmandu area (a densely populated city or capital of Nepal); however Langtang Helambu area is apart from the world. There is a wide variety of landscapes (forests, pastures of yaks, mountain lakes, high mountains …). The cultural aspect is not left at the crossing and its villages of Helambu Sherpas.
