Helambu Gosaikunda Trek (Good for family)

  • Duration: 12 Days (8 days tea house trek)
  • Grade: Moderate/ Adventurous
  • Best seasons: Spring and Autumn
  • Cost: USD 800
Helambu trek is easily access from Kathmandu. Helambu offer many Monastery visit, Rhododendron forest (flower; March/April), superb mountain views, picturesque Sherpa settlements, friendly people and after all unspoiled culture of the area. This trek is more like cultural trek than mountain and glacier expeditions. People here call themselves Sherpas but their relationship with the Sherpa of Solu Khumbu is distant. The dialects spoken are also different. People here follow the Buddhist religion so you will find many old Buddhist monasteries in the villages. Tarkeghyang is another Sherpa town along the way, which bears its own story. Our itinerary also combines with the holy lake of Gosainkund, a pilgrimage place of Hindu religion. As per a legend, Shiva, Hindu god once swallowed all the poison to save the world and to quench his thirst he happened to be here.
