Helambu’s people call themselves Sherpa, although they’re only distant cousins of the Solu-Khumbu stock. Tamangs are also numerous, while the valley bottoms are farmed mainly by caste Hindus and with so many trails to choose from, those that do tend to spread themselves out. So, we get the golden opportunity to explore the culture of Sherpa and tamang residents.
