Helambu trek offers pine forest, slow moving rivers and swift mountain streams, rugged rock and snow-capped peaks, grassy downs and meadows strewn with daisies and wild beings. In the upper part of the valley there are snow bridges spanning angry torrents, high passes enveloped in mist, tiny lakes with icebergs floating on them and waters of crystalline brightness. This is  comparatively easier one due to the fact that the elevations are lower, ranging between 800m and 3600m, offering less climbing as well as warmer temperatures. Also this trail is less crowded & free from noise in comparison to the Annapurna trek and some parts of the Everest treks. Besides easy and best trekking, it does offer a wide range of Buddhist Sherpa cultures and spectacular scenery.
