HELAMBU SHERPA VILLAGES TREK

This trek can be conducted at various times throughout the year. The most popular times are March to end of May and October to December. Other times even in winter January February because is still low elevation. June July August September not recommended at all as it’s time monsoon rains so heavily.

This is a another lower altitude treks. Given this, and the convenient location close to Kathmandu. You’d think it would be more “touristy” than it is. On this trek, you will see some great mountain views, walk through truly beautiful forests and see fascinating villages. We walk through villages settled by Brahmins, Tamangs and Sherpa people. Each group has their own distinctive culture, jewellery and dress. For those interested in textiles and fabrics, there’s a lot of “eye candy”! The Sherpas of the Helambu region are quite distinct from the Sherpas of the Everest region in both language and customs As well as rich cultural diversity, we get mountain views that include the Langtang, Annapurna, Manaslu and even Everest when the planets are in alignment!

This is a good short trekking for those with less time in Nepal.
