The trekking Langtang valley is aptly called “the valley of glaciers". Here the mountain-scape is spectacular. On either side of Helambu valley trekking, mountains rise, soaring into the sky. Helambu treks offers pine forest, slow moving rivers and swift mountain streams, rugged rock and snow-capped peaks, grassy downs and meadows strewn with daisies and wild primulas. In the upper part of the valley there are snow bridges spanning angry torrents, high passes enveloped in mist, tiny lakes with icebergs floating on them and waters of crystalline brightness.
Helambu hiking is comparatively easier one due to the fact that the elevations are lower, ranging between 800m and 3600m, offering less climbing as well as warmer temperatures. The most important benefit of helambu treks is that the area is less crowded & free from noise in comparison to the Annapurna trek and some parts of the Everest treks. Besides easy and best trekking, the helambu trek offers a wide range of cultures and spectacular scenery.
