This region is relatively isolated and predominantly inhabited by the Tamangs and Helambu Sherpas who originated in Tibet just to the north. A trek in this region offers the opportunity to view traditional village life amid a picturesque alpine wilderness and affords brilliant views of the mighty peaks of Langtang (7234m) and Ganesh (7446m) as well as a sprawl of endless 6000m+ summits. For those who are interested in flora and fauna, it is ideal to visit during March and April.

This is a unique journey with numerous highlights such as stunning views of high mountains with culture of Tamang and Helmule people who are physically and culturally resemble to the Tibetan and their unique lifestyle is still thriving under their traditional attitude.
