Helambu Circuit Trek is a new, attractive, and also easily accessible trekking destination in Nepal. We found a very less number of trekkers during the trek than on the Annapurna trek and some parts of the Everest treks, however, there is a wide range of cultures and spectacular scenery.

Helambu Circuit Trek provides a fascinating combination of natural beauty and cultural riches. This is also the less touristic area and allows you to commune with nature and experience the local culture. Himalayan Sanctuary Adventure organizes Helambu Valley circuit trekking throughout the year according to client’s preferences.
