  Helambu is situated north of Kathmandu, the area is inhabited by Sherpa’s, however they differ in custom, language and dress from the Sherpa's of the Solu Khumbu. Many people combine the Langtang trek with the Helambu trek.
This particular trek itinerary commences at Sundarijal (1350m) in the Kathmandu Valley, around an hours drive from Kathmandu town. Helambu trekking offers a scenic loop through villages of varied ethnic groups and there are some great mountain views along the way.The trek takes you through a surprising amount of old growth forest where a lot of ancient rhododendron trees line the trail.
