We offer you typical organic Nepali cushion which are really amazing.  

Best Time to Travel

Autumn (Sept. to Nov.) and spring (March to May) are the best time for Trekking. The weather is delightful and pleasant during autumn. The mountain views are astonishing.

The hills are wrapped with beautiful flowering rhododendron during spring. Mjaority of the trekkers find Spring best time to trek to Helambu Trekking  since they love to see flowering rhododendron.

Summer will be too hot for some trekkers. Heavy rainfall occurs and disturbs the transportation and even walk in the mountain.
