You will pass past a few Sherpa and Tamang villages as well as numerous Buddhist monasteries, shrines, and stupas built in the Tibetan style. Although there are less people on the Helambu trekking routes, nature never ceases to astound you with its magnificence.When the rhododendron blossoms are in bloom, the trail through the deep woodlands leads us to cross a number of ridgelines. The scenery is breathtaking, and the lush meadows evoke a sense of serenity.

The following day, while traveling to Kutumsang, we’ll follow a ridgeline and take in the scenery of the Langtang mountains.

Visit a lodge in Chisapani for the night.
