Helambu region is a relatively low altitude trek and
one of the most convenient of the short trek close
to Kathmandu but crowd less. 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 Tamang
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
where carefully exploited to a lower cast because
of a Nepali king who was afraid they could give rebellion
as they live all around the city regions. To this
result, they still live in backward civilization.
The ranges of mountains that rise above us match the
diversity of the people we meet. From low altitudes
we 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 become immersed in the beauty
of the Himalayas.
