Trip Overview:

Helambu trek is ideal for people with less time who do not wish to travel too far from the Kathmandu Valley. Helambu is a lush region to the North of Kathmandu inhabited by Sherpas and Tamang people although the Sherpas of this region differ in their practices from their cousins in the Everest region. The trek passes through some beautiful forests and very interesting villages on route.

The Helambu region is a relatively low altitude trek and one of the most convenient of the short trek close to Kathmandu but crowd less.

Introduction

For a spectrum of Nepali people and the Himalayas, the Helambu trek is unrivalled. The trek passes through some beautiful forests and very interesting villages on route. As the journey progresses you visit the homes of Brahmins, Tamangs and Sherpa people of Nepal. This place has scenic grandeur and pleasant climate as well as a long history of Buddhism, culture and ancient tradition of Tamangs and Sherpas.

In Helambu region the Sherpa are quite distinct from the Sherpas of Solu khumbu(Everest region) both in language and customs. The people in Helambu were carefully exploited to a lower cast because of a Nepali king who was afraid they could form a rebellion as they live all around the city regions.

The ranges of mountains that rise above us match the diversity of the people we meet. From a low altitudes, we will have excellent views of mountains that include Langtang, the Annapurnas, Manaslu and even Everest on a clear day. This is a pleasant and exciting journey, a time to relax and get immersed in the beauty of the Himalayas.
