The Lantang and Helambu are the section which is closest to Kathmandu. Despite of its closeness to the capital, it is amazing to see how the traditional life in these villages is. Both men and women are often dressed traditionally. The main occupation farming can be seen by plugging the land with oxen. The villages offer an interesting mix of Buddhist and Hindu cultures with Chettri, Newari, Tamang and Sherpa.
