I went for the Helambu trip, a destination close to the Kathmandu valley. Don’t underestimate this trip just because it is close. The trail is filled with beautiful forests, hydropower stations, Langtang Himalayan range, beautiful green hills and terraced fields, rich cultural experience, and the traditional lifestyle of people. The trail is very less crowded and one can say that it is an unexplored land in Nepal. So, if you want the best local experience, definitely go for the Helambu Trekking. I went for it and it was the best moment of my life.
