Despite facing challenges, including a decline in followers, the resilient inhabitants of Yolmo are steadfast in preserving their unique traditions for future generations. With cultural ties echoing those of the border regions of Tibet, Yolmo people proudly uphold their distinct identity, keeping alive the spiritual essence of their ancestral homeland.


A sacred art form revered by Buddhists, Thangka paintings adorn the walls of monasteries and temples, serving as a visual representation of religious beliefs and teachings. In the Helambu region, where Buddhism permeates daily life, Thangkas hold a special place of reverence, symbolizing the spiritual journey of devotees and gracing religious ceremonies and festivals with their intricate beauty.
