- Helambu Trek
The Helambu Trek only takes seven
days, starts from sundarijal at the end of kathmandu
valley. It makes a loop through the sherpa populated
regin to the north east at kathmandu. We can say
this trek is mostly fallowed by many villages.
There are few point on the trail from where we
can view clear the range of ganesh himal, Langtang
7234 meters, dorje Lakpa 6966 meters, gosaikunda
8013 meters, chhaba bhamare 5970 meters.

The trail continues to climb but
less steeply, through chisopani
then drops down to pati vhanjyang
at 1770 meters. Chisopani is rather
like a grubby little truck stop
without trucks but the Mountain
View can be seen very fine.

khola by a bridge at 1890 meters
