This is one of the ideal choices for a week-long getaway deep into nature. It starts in the capital, Kathmandu and takes not more than 6 days to get back.
For new adventurists, this is considered to be an ideal route because it’s short and runs through a not-so-busy trail. The dense green forests with frequently occurring small and beautiful Tamang and Sherpa villages will get you everything you need to take a break during the trek.
Throughout the trial, you’ll get to see the massif Langtang range surrounding the entire Helambu region. The typical local meals and ethnic customs will be very interesting what adds to the enriching experience of the Hyolmo culture.
