OverviewOverview

Helambu area is one of the most beautiful regions in the foot hills of the Himalaya, which is just a few days away from the Kathmandu Valley rim situated directly north east of Kathmandu in the Central Himalayan Region. This area happens to be within and always been referred as the Langtang region as most of the trek to Langtang and adventurous traverse joins at Helambu, Langtang area was declared a National Park in 1976 and remains the second largest Park in Nepal, covering 1710 sq.km. Mountainous terrain south of Nepal-Tibet (China) border.

Within its boundaries are some 45 villages, with the main objective of the park is to preserve the regions by allowing the local to follow the traditional land use practices which are compatible with resource protection.

Helambu treks begin from Sundarijal or Melamchi Pul, the area offers a range of cultures with the main three ethnic peoples living in are the Tamangs, Bhotias andYolmus. The Yolmo people of the Helambu region are not often referred to as “Sherpas”, however, neither their languages, customs, nor does clan structure resemble the Solu-Khumbu Sherpas of Everest. They are thought to be more akin to Langtang Bhotias, and may also have originated from the Kyirong area of Tibet, just over the border.
