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.

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.

Then we descend to Chisapani, enjoying the close-up views of mountains to our left. Tonight, spend your time at a guesthouse in Chisapani.

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.

Incredible Scenery and Service

I trekked up to Basecamp with Ram and his Heaven Himalaya team last year and had incredible Scenery and Service. The scenery is just awesome, and Ram took amazing care of everyone in our group. He kept us all entertained and motivated and most importantly, healthy. Can't recommend him highly enough!

Best Experience Ever, Thank You Ram

My wife and I spent our honeymoon in the mountains. We made the Three Passes Trek in the Everest region. I can certainly say that it was the ultimate outdoor experience we have ever had, simply astonishing. I'm also very sure that a great part of enjoying that experience the way we did was thanks to our guide (Ram). He's a highly expert in the mountains and more importantly a great person with a big heart and always a smile to offer.

Everest Base Camp Trek

I did the Everest Base Camp Trek back in Nov’18 and it was an awesome experience. My guide, Ram was fantastic, very knowledgeable, and professional. He was very good in all the preparations that he made and was very attentive to my needs. He was very thorough explaining all parts of the trek and he took good care of me, especially I was exhausted on the last day of the trek, he pushed and helped me out to ensure I made it to EBC. I highly recommend going with Ram if you ever wanted to do any treks in Nepal.
