We can also see different species of birds and animals such as Himalayan Thar, Ghoral, Musk Deer, Bengal Tiger, Rhino, Pigeon and more. The best season for this trek is from March to July and September to first December. But it can be arranged according to your requirement during the whole year.
Helambu (“the hidden valley,” or Ba Yul) was blessed by Guru Rinpoche, and many other great rinpoches (Buddhist teachers) have visited this secret holy land. According to Buddhist legends, Helambu is one of the seven hidden valleys where Buddhist monks practice meditation. This valley contains many important pilgrimage sites for Buddhists. There are centuries-old monasteries, traditional Buddhist wall paintings, beautiful clay statues, colorful prayer flags, and hundreds of old and new stupas and mani walls.
This trekking trail is never crowded and is ideal for trekkers with limited time and for someone who wants to combine a cultural experience in a trekking expedition.
