This is an ideal trip for those who have a short time yet would like to experience diverse culture as well as spectacular scenery. The trek is relatively easy, yet often up and down. The highlight is when we arrive at Tharepati where we have dramatic panoramic views of the well known and loved mountains: Gaurisankar (7134m) Langtang (7245m), Ganesh Himal (7405m), DorjeLhakpa (6990m) Sisapama (8,013m) as well as other small mountains. The warm and friendly people of Helambu are mostly Buddhists and Sherpas of Solukhumbu – seen by their language, culture and dress. The Tamang villages are culturally rich with Buddhist Gompas and family shrines.
