The word Hyolmo derives from the word Helambu. The Helambu region begins at the Lauribina La pass and descends to the Melamchi valley. Helambu is famous for its sweet apples and artistic Buddhist monasteries and it is a Buddhist pilgrimage site. It is situated in the upper belt of Sindhupalchok district and the sacred place of Lord Padmasambhava, Milarepa, and Guru Rinpoche, awaits exploration. The mountains like Langtang, Dorje Lakpa, Ama Yangri encircle this region. Helambu offers very well-facilitated hotels and lodges at reasonable costs. But here you cannot find luxury hotels. Internet facility is also available. There are community health centers and health posts to provide health services. Hyolmo families are known for keeping the interiors of their houses very tidy, and they decorate in a unique way. They also have an equally unique style of hosting guests—most families are quick to offer their guests a mug of butter tea.
Despite its alluring natural beauty, culture, and heritage and proximity to the Kathmandu Valley, only a few hundred visitors visit this place annually.
Bitter Fact: In 2021, mega flood of Melamchi river swept away almost all part of Melamchi bazar. Many Residences lost their lives, homes, lands and livestock. People of Melamchi still are in trauma from that devastation.
