Helambu, situated about 72 kilometers north- east of Kathmandu, is famous for its scenic grandeur and pleasant climate. There are many Buddhist monasteries amidst a rich and enchanting landscape. Helambu is great for short treks. Helambu was once considered a hidden, sacred domain and its misty ridges and fertile valleys are still comparatively isolated. The peaks of Langtang Himal are clearly visible from the area.
Sundarijal is the starting point for three days trekking to Helambu. Sundarijal is just 11 kilometers away from Kathmandu linked by a metalled road.
Many lodges and tea-houses are available along the trekking route and in Helambu.
