    I just love traveling in Nepal. I have been to this country every summer breaks. This time, I needed something simple, short and close to the capital city, Kathmandu. Helambu trekking of 6 days was just the best choice. With trail filled with waterfalls, mountain valleys, rich culture experience, and sights of developing communities, I just loved the overall journey.

    Great Trip with Friends along Helambu Langtang


    I and my friends were in Kathmandu. Here, we looked around some places for trekking and every place was either crowded with travelers or not catchy ones. So I contacted NTA for some suggestions. They suggested the 6 Days Trek to Helambu. It was a short trek filled with forest trails, mountain views, Buddhist culture, and the best one, a quite trekking experience.

  • Exploration of Buddhist Culture with Helambu Hike

    Exploration of Buddhist Culture with Helambu Hike


    I follow Buddhism and it hasn’t been long since I changed to this religion. Nepal, the birthplace of Lord Buddha made me come to this small country in Asia with all its cultural essence. As I was around the capital visiting the UNESCO sites and later visited Lumbini, I still had 8 days left in Nepal. So, I decided to explore a little. Choosing Helambu was a great choice. It was just 6 days' trek and with many monasteries and terraced land fields, I loved the trails. For me, quietness is really important when traveling, and that is the main thing that I got on this trek. It was a peaceful and fun sightseeing experience which wasn’t crowded with travelers. The trail has maintained its ancient beauty. You would experience the local lifestyle too that is an overall new experience. I definitely recommend this trip to everyone.
