Helambu Trek – A Short Trek

Helambu Trek is a good short trek near from Kathmandu valley; this region is relatively un-spoilt. The Hyolmo culture and Hyolmoli peoples and different types of rhododendron and bamboo forest will keep your head at the right place. Amazing views of high snowcapped mountain peaks, majestic waterfall and beautiful Buddhist monasteries, Mani walls, Stupas, and Pray flags in passes are the highlights of this trek.


Because of the border of Tibet and the fact that Tibetan culture people seem like Tibetan, the ones living in the Helambu region are still Nepalese. Being the descendants of the Tibetan origin, they still look like the Tibetans. These parts make Helambu trek one of the diverse treks nearby Kathmandu.

We advise travel insurance to all travelers who are interested in trekking in Nepal. Trekking in Nepal is walking on the trail (path) of mountains. In mountain areas, health treatment facilities are not standard. There is less availability of good hospitals and doctors. So if in case the trekker suffers from severe sickness, he should be brought to Kathmandu by helicopter for better treatment. And the helicopter charter fare is expensive in Nepal. If you have already travel insurance, your money will be saved.

When selecting a travel insurance policy we require that at a minimum you are covered for medical expenses including emergency repatriation. We strongly recommend that the policy also covers personal liability, cancellation, curtailment and loss of luggage and personal effects. We, JRN Treks, shall have no liability for loss, theft of or damage to baggage or personal effects.

We also let you know that Nepalese Insurance Company does not have a travel insurance policy for foreign nationals. They have this policy only for Nepalese citizens. So we advise you to select your travel insurance with Insurance Company in your own place.
