The Helambu trek is a perfect short trek nearby Kathmandu Valley. Despite being so close to Kathmandu, the Helambu region remains relatively un-spoilt. Besides the hyolmo culture of high mountain people, the company of green rhododendron and bamboo forests, majestic waterfalls, and snow-capped Himalayas make the trek one of most diverse treks near Kathmandu. The great Himalayan scenery at the border with Tibet and monasteries make a trek to the region an enthralling experience. The people living the highlands of the Langtang region are certainly the Nepalis, being the descendant of the Tibetan origin, they still look like Tibetans.

I live in Nepal with my family and have been trekking many times here. This was our first trek with Wilderness Excursions. I found them very efficient and their prices reasonable. The quality of guide and porters was excellent - experienced, good with our children and very attentive. A few details of the trek changed during the course of our planning and it was never a problem for Wilderness Excursion to adapt things. I would definitely recommend others to use this company
