The great attractions of this trek are the people in the villages through which we pass and the opportunity to take in a number of CAN’s projects. This is an immensely rewarding trek for walkers of good fitness and average ability.


Detailed Itinerary

The Helambu region is easily reached from the Kathmandu valley. There is a short bus ride to the road head at Sundarijal for the start of the trek. The trail follows the ridge tops leading through areas increasingly influenced by Buddhism. We pass through the villages of Chisopani, Chipling, Kutumsang and Melamchigaun, finally completing the circuit at Semarthang before descending to the roadhead at Kieul. There are distant views of the Himalaya from the higher points of the trek and a particularly panoramic view from Chisopani. On a clear day it is possible to see from Annapurna in the west to Everest in the east.
