Not far away from Kathmandu city, the Helambu region is filled with cultural, historical and natural beauty one can experience to its fullest by being there. We stroll through the beautiful Shivapuri National Park which reflects the mid-hill ecosystem of Nepal. Apart from the obvious vast natural beauty, this trek is a perfect way to locate and observe the ethnic diversity of Nepal. Throughout the trek, we will come across the settlements of Tamang, Chhetris, Brahmin and Sherpa people. The majority of people living in this area are Buddhists and Hindus who proudly respect and co-exist. As we gain altitude, beautiful snow-capped peaks of Langtang, Dorje Lakpa, Ganesh Himal, and many more are in close view.
Helambu is an easy trek that does not need any advanced technical skill or experience. In a short period, this trek takes you through the mid-hills of Nepal and helps you discover the cultural, traditional, and environmental diversity.
