Dudhkunda Municipality 1 (formerly Taksindu VDC 6)
Development and history of a Sherpa village
by Nepal Research and
Shree Hewa Socio-Cultural Community (HSCC) (Shree Hewa Samajik-Sanskritik Sanstha)
Time in Taksindu:
This website offers an introduction into the small village of Hewa, formerly Yawa, that was part of Taksindu VDC, Solukhumbu district in Eastern Nepal. As part of the local level restructuring in 2017, the village became part of Dudhkunda Municipality. The administrative centre of Taksindu is at Manidingma or Nunthala as it has been called by the Nepali administration.
The website tries to provide some understanding for this area as well as to explain the history and culture of its inhabitants, who are predominantly Sherpas. We want to show you the rapid development of the village in recent years but also the remaining problems with which Hewa is confronted as a consequence of this modernisation.
HSCC plays a leading role in this development process, though there are some other organisations and initiatives. Finally, we should not forget the great support that the village has got and is still getting from a number of friends and foreign NGOs.
| The following trekking agencies are run by leading members of HSCC who invest a lot of
time and money in the development of the village. Besides,
they bring tourists and, thus, contribute to improve the income of the villagers and to sustain the projects:
