Hello atul_lucknow,

Welcome to TripAdvisor forum for Nepal!

I am not sure but if you are talking about the Melamchi village in Helambu Trek then it's little far from Kathmandu to access. There are guest houses, I stayed at Yangri Lodge [If I remember properly]. It will Take about 3 days if you reach Melamchi Pul Bazaar and starting walking from there. I do not know if there are other options available. Nepal is pretty safe to travel. However personally rather than walking totally alone I recommend you to find a companion or use at least a Nepali staff.

Good Luck!

Hi

There are two Melamchis (at least) in Sindhupalchok:

Melamch Pul Bazaar which is about 4 hours by bus from KTM (Ratna bus park, I think).

Melamchi Gaon which involves some walking but not necessarily 3 days; some of the buses continue up the valley to Timbu of not beyond which would reduce walking time.

Both can be seen on this map:

Hi again.

If you want to travel by bus the probably you are talking about Melamchi Pul Bazaar which is about 4 hours as mentioned on previous post. I think Melamchi Gaon do not have road access yet.

Good Luck!

Hello again,

Melamchi Pul Bazaar is about 3/4 hours drive [if I can remember correctly] from Kathmandu. I stayed at a small lodge when I was returning from trekking in Helambu area long time ago. I do not know the name of the hotels there.

In Kathmandu there are several hotels. I have stayed in different hotels; both deluxe and standard ones. I would say Hotel Shankar if you are looking for deluxe hotel, Samsara Resort, Hotel Thamel etc.

Here are the hotels listed: tripadvisor.com/Hotels-g293890-Kathmandu_Kat…

Good Luck!

The best way to get ideas about villages of nepal these days can be the facebook group or pages. Admin or user are a good source of knowledges about the local areas.

The facebook pages

" Radio Melamchi,"

"Melamchi Guest House,"

"Indrawati Campus Melamchi,"

"Hamro Melamchi Bazar,"

"Melamchi, Sindhupalchok District, Nepal,"

"Hamro Helambu,"

"Helambu, Nepal"

Above pages users and admin are good sources of knowledge if you really want to be there.

Thank you.

Melamchi Pul is a bazaar. There are at least 5 or 6 hotels, basic and upmarket. Most of them are close to the bus stop, so you can choose when you arrive. It is a perfectly safe place.

There are shops and restaurants as well.
