Helambu Trek is an exceptional opportunity to immerse in the unspoiled beauty of high mountainous terrain in Nepal’s Langtang region. It is an ideal short trek for anyone seeking a power pack travel package from nearby Kathmandu valley. The trek introduces you to the cosmic melange of natural wonder and cultural essence. The untouched hills, rugged valleys, verdant forests, shimmering rivers, natural springs, wild mountains, and authentic Buddhism region. There is an unending list of what this trek offers.

We can accomplish the Helambu trek just in seven days. Starting with a short drive from Kathmandu to Sundarijal, the trek extends to the lower slope of Jugal Himal. Amidst the trail traverses through several traditional villages like Chisopani, Kutumsang, Thadepati, Sermathang, etc. inhabited by people of the Tamang and Sherpa community. So, are you ready for this fascinating trip into the unknown?

With the dense jungles of Shivapuri National Park, the regular life of wildlife within those woods, biodiversity, pine forests, rugged trail with the beguiling views of mountains in the backdrop, Helambu Trek is a dream come true for every nature lover.

During the trek, one can not only savor the beauty of mountains but unravel the traditional culture of local people living in the region. Did you know? The descendants of Tibetan people mostly inhabit the villages on the trail. They look similar to that of the Tibetan people. Their physical appearance and culture, custom, and tradition are like that of the Tibetans. The people living there are mostly Buddhists. One can notice the culture’s dominance as you walk past the colorful prayer flags, mani walls, stupas, monasteries, and gompas on the way. Their traditional music, songs, dances, and costumes are something that will appeal to you. Not to forget the delicious traditional food, it’s something that should not be missed.

Best Days of My Life

I and my colleagues visited Nepal back in the year 2017. I was not an experienced hiker but anyway chose Annapurna Base Camp Trek with a trekking agency in Nepal. It was like a challenge for me to trek to the 4000 m altitude, but Mr. Ram helped us in every way possible. He was there from the start of our trekking journey in Pokhara to our end days in Kathmandu. Ram kept pushing me forward and even waited for me to catch the other team. He guided me from choosing plain food to meditating. Although I was a victim of altitude sickness and couldn't enjoy the trek to the fullest, I am very grateful to have chosen him.

Annapurna Base Camp is a beautiful place in the Himalayas. The Gurung Village, Poonhill, Pokhara every place was just outstanding.
I have now developed a hiking attitude, and I have been training for the EBC trek now. I can't wait to visit the Himalayas again.

Perfectly Organized Upper Mustang Trek

All thanks to Mr. Ram for organizing the Upper Mustang, trekking perfectly from beginning to end. I, along with my bunch of friends, had a delightful experience with the Heaven Himalaya team. For us, it is the best trekking agency in Nepal. The guides and porters were very flexible and took care of everything around us.

I recommend everyone to try these young guys to go hiking in Nepal.

Wonderful Trekking Experience

My wife and I visited Upper Mustang and were lucky to have chosen Heaven Himalaya. We had a wonderful experience trekking in Upper Mustang. As soon as we landed in TIA, we were welcomed by Ram. He was very easy and responsive to work with. He explained all the queries we had and gave a brief description of the tour. As we were watching videos and reading blogs about Upper Mustang, we had a lot of expectations about the place and the trekking agency we were working with. We had a private 18-day tour with a porter. And to be honest, we found everything beyond our expectations. The hills, mountains, monasteries were all amazing, especially Lo Manthang is a great place to visit. Our guide was also equally supportive and friendly. The team made our trek more enjoyable. While writing this, it reminded me of the days we had on the trails. Thank You again for the wonderful experience. Best wishes to Jason and Esha. We will definitely love to return and probably do the Everest base camp Trek this time.

Trip of a lifetime- Annapurna Circuit Trek

Heaven Himalaya Team offers a magnificently arranged trekking involvement in Nepal. Ramhari answered instantly to all my messages. They make a solid effort to make your vacation in Nepal an extraordinary one and genuinely went well beyond my desires.

I couldn't remember the name of the guide but my boy, you were more than amazing. I wish you good luck in the days to come.

Everything from pickup to trekking in the mountains was very professional with excellent service.

So, I strongly suggest everyone and will trek with Heaven Himalaya again in the future.

Glorious Experience in EBC Trek

We did an EBC trek with Ram and his team back in April 2019, and it was a glorious experience. Ram is a very knowledgeable, resourceful, and very helpful guide. 2 of us got unwell during the trek, and he was very prompt and took care of us in any way that was available.

We enjoyed our chat and his sense of humor along the trail and at the teahouses. He even got us a special breakfast and pickle salad at Namche Bazaar and always fulfilled the strange request with our dietary needs. EBC trek is amazing. With Ram, it is even more spectacular. Thanks for the amazing trip. Looking forward to island peak climb in the future.
