Helambu Circuit Trek for families (Going to Yolmoland), 9 Days

Tage: 9 / Schwierigkeit: 2 of 5 (Moderat)

Helambu Circuit Trek with Children is an ideal short trek near the Kathmandu valley which can be enjoyed by the entire family for being a low altitude trek with moderate difficulty. Despite being so close to Kathmandu, the natural beauty and traditional culture of the Helambu region remains unspoiled. Trekking along the classic Himalayan foothills, you get to explore the Buddhist monasteries and traditional villages of the Hyolmo communities on this trek to Hyolmo land.

Helambu Circuit Trek with Children starts with your arrival in Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu, after which you drive to Sundarijal and start the trek. The trek takes you through Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park, a flora and fauna paradise, to reach Chisapani village for a surreal view of the Langtang and Ganesh Himal ranges. The trail takes through rhododendron and pine forests, waterfalls, and farming lands. En route, you cross many streams and pass through the traditional villages of the Hyolmo people, including Kutumsang, Melamchi Gaon, Tarkeghyang, and Sermathang. There are many Buddhist monasteries on this route, including the centuries-old Gekye Gompa of Tarkeghyang, which provide you an insight of the Tibetan Buddhist culture practiced by the indigenous people. Moreover, you get to be a witness to the simple lifestyle and fascinating culture of the Hyolmo people.  Throughout the trek, your children can mingle with the local children and make new friends in the quaint villages of the Helambu valley.

  • Yolmoland Family Lodge Trek and Chitwan Tour, 14 Day 9 August to 22 August 2014

Hallo Stephan,
es hat ein wenig gedauert, da wir im Moment viel um die Ohren haben, aber nun endlich unser Bericht und ein paar Bilder zur Veröffentlichung:
"Im August 2014 waren wir gemeinsam mit unserer 9-jährigen Tochter in Nepal. Wir hatten uns im Vorfeld entschieden, zunächst an einer mehrtägigen Trekkingtour teilzunehmen, um anschließend noch einige erholsame Tage in Chitwan zu verbringen. Aufgrund der Sommerferien mussten wir den Urlaub in den August verlegen, obwohl uns dies wegen des Monsuns nicht unbedingt als geeigneteste Reisezeit erschien. Aber es gibt bekanntlich kein schlechtes Wetter, sondern nur schlechte Kleidung...
Nach einem stundenlangen Flug über Nacht mit Aufenthalt in Dubai kamen wir schließlich in Kathmandu an und wurden herzlich von Stephan, seinen Töchtern und unserem Guide empfangen. Zunächst standen wir natürlich ganz unter den vielen Eindrücken, die in Kathmandu auf uns einströmten. Die vielen Menschen, die so andersartigen Farben, Gerüche, das ganze Durcheinander, was man aus Europa gar nicht kennt. Unsere Tochter staunte nicht schlecht. Sie hatte im Vorfeld kaum eine Vorstellung, was sie hier erwarten würde. Es gibt nicht viele europäische Kinder in Nepal, sodass sie zudem stets im Mittelpunkt stand. Viele Einheimische wollten sich mit ihr fotografieren lassen, um eine Erinnerung zu haben. Das war nun wirklich gewöhnungsbedürftig, sorgte aber für einige amüsante Szenen.
Am zweiten Tag ging es auch schon los. Wir hatten uns für den Langtang-Treck entschieden, da wir im Grunde gleich losmarschieren und nicht noch innerhalb des Landes weiterreisen wollten. Der Einstieg in den Treck ist am Stadtrand von Kathmandu. Es ging zunächst nur bergauf und es war heiß. Wir kamen gut ins schwitzen, es ging aber gut voran. Unsere Tochter musste zwar einige Pausen mehr einlegen und hat auch zuerst ein bißchen gejammert. Später packte sie dann der Ehrgeiz und wir waren über ihre Kondition erstaunt. Schließlich waren wir 5 Tage stets zwischen 7 und 10 Stunden unterwegs. Es ging so einige Male bis zu 1000 Höhenmeter rauf und wieder runter. Leider hat es dann ab dem zweiten Tag zunehmend geregnet, wodurch einhergehend mit dem aufziehenden Nebel nicht viel zu sehen war. Es gab jedoch immer wieder lichte Augenblicke mit sehr schönen Aussichten auf Berge und in Täler. 
Wir hatten einen sehr guten Guide, der sogar schon einmal auf dem Mont Everest war, und zwei nette Träger. Es gabe viele interessante Begegnungen mit den Einwohnern vor Ort, die stets freundlich und zugewandt wirkten. Insgesamt trotz des Regens für uns alle ein tolles Erlebnis.
Anschließend verbrachten wir erneut zwei Tage in Kathmandu, um dort zu relaxen und Sehenswürdigkeiten anzusehen. Anschließend ging es per Flug in den Nationalpark nach Chitwan. Dort konnten wir dann Krokodile, Elefanten und Nashörner in freier Wildbahn sehen. Ein Höhepunkt war das Elefantenreiten.
Am letzten Tag folgten wir dann noch einer Einladung Stephans zu sich nach Hause. So konnten die Kinder dann noch einmal gemeinsam spielen und es gab köstliches Essen und gute Gespräche.
In Erinnerung werden wir eine spannende, abwechlungsreiche Reise behalten, die sehr gut organisiert war."
Viele Grüße aus Deutschland
