Helambu trek makes a circle through the Sherpa Helambu that is northeast of Kathmandu. Helambu area is populated by the friendly and helpful sherpa people. It does not have good views, as the Annapurna or Everest treks, but it is a good cultural experience. There are many teahouses along the route, so you do not need to bring a tent or food, but it is suggested to have a sleeping bag.
