Ama Yangri Trek

Ama Yangri Trek is one of the less popular but super awesome trekking destinations in the Helambu region. It is considered to be the highest peak around Kathmandu valley which lies at an altitude of 3771 meters. Ama Yangri is considered to be a deity that has turned into the protector of the Helambu region. The Ama Yangri peak can be compared to the Poon hill of the Annapurna region in terms of views of the mountains. Ama Yangri is a peak that lies in the Helambu region of the Sindhupalchowk district of Nepal. Ama Yangri peak requires a trek from the Tarke Ghyang village of the Helambu region. Tarke Ghyang can be reached easily through a motorable road or can be trekked as well. It is highly recommended to trek up to Tarke Ghyang, from Timbu. You can get a bus to Timbu easily from Chuchhepati, Kathmandu. The trek from Timbu to Tarke Ghyang can be completed in a day. It takes about 5 hours from Timbu to Tarke Ghyang. The route is filled with diverse forests, birds, and little beautiful villages. This trek is beautiful to experience both naturally and culturally. Tarkeghyang rests at a beautiful location just below the Ama Yangri peak. There are plenty of lodges so it won’t be much of a problem. You can stay the night at Tarke Ghyang. The next day, early in the morning, you can leave for Ama Yangri peak. The trek takes about 3-4 hours from Tarke Ghyang. This trek is pretty diverse. You go from dense rhododendron forests to upper Himalayan parts with clear views of the Himalayas. After reaching the peak, you can dive into nature for some while, and then get back to Tarke Ghyang again and stay the night. The next day, you can get to Timbu and then to Kathmandu from there.

(5/5) By Tshering on 23 May, 2022

Ama yangri is the best short hiking destination nearest to kathmandu valley . Chyomuthang resort is opened at the basecamp chyomuthang to facilitate visitors to ama yangri .It is providing good food with sound accomodation .Good news is that ,you can drive directly to chyomuthang resort via tarkeghyang village or you can trek from tarkeghyang to chyomuthang resort in 2 hours .If you want long trek, you can drive to timbu in local bus ,stay a night there and trek in the early morning , it will take around 7 hours to reach chyomuthang resort from timbu .It is the best place for natural birding as well .Thank you .
