Helambu Trek, Helambu Trek, Guide for Helambu Trek, Trekking in Helambu

Helambu Trek:   Duration: 7 Days
Max Altitude: 3,800m
Trek Grade: Moderate to Strenuous
Per Day Walking: 4 - 6 Hours
Accommodation: Teahouse
    Helambu trek about  72 kilometers northeast of Kathmandu, is noted for its scenic grandeur and  pleasant climate. The Helambu region, extending from north of Taramarang to the  tree limit of the Gosainkunda Lake and lower slopes of Jugal Himal, has several  highland Tamang and Sherpa villages, scattered on both sides of the Malemchi  Khola.This trek is rated as an easier trek because the elevations are  lower, ranging between 800m. and 3600m., which indicates less climbing and  warmer temperatures. One advantage to this trek is there are fewer trekkers here  than on the Annapurna trek and some parts of the Everest treks, but there is  still a wide range of cultures and spectacular  scenery.
