Tamang Heritage Trek

Duration: 10 Days / 9 Nights
  • Destination: Nepal
  • Meals: BLD (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner)

Tamang Heritage Trek takes you into the laps of Langtang region, and is a combination of camping and home-stay trekking. You will do an interesting trek through typical Tamang villages. Discover the history of the place, the descendants and their culture. See their way of life and how it depends on agriculture and trade. Unlike treks of the popular Annapurna and Everest regions, this trail is far less crowded. In fact, you will see a very few trekkers on the trail, which makes this the perfect short trek in the Nepalese Himalaya.

The people in this region are known for preserving their native culture and language, one that has remained virtually unaltered. The Tamang and Hyalmo are said to have migrated eons ago from Tibet and in the past it was a trade route leading there. People here had more exposure to Tibet so the culture of this region resembles that of Tibet. Yet, the mix of Nepal and Tibet found here is unique to this trail.

Syabrubesi is the origin and end of this trek, taking you through landscapes of unspoiled natural beauty. Trekking through forests in hilly trails and rough landscapes, you might see bears, leopards, red panda, and musk deer that inhabit this place. You will enjoy panoramic views of Langtang and Ganesh Himal Range, including Mt. Dorje Lhakpa, Paldor Peak, Mt. Manaslu and Jugal Himal. Along the way you will see glacial lakes, hydropower plants, visit a cheese factory, and pass through alpine terrain. You will also dip, relax, and kill-off fatigue in at least one hot spring.

This is a moderate to fairly strenuous trek requiring a good habit of daily exercise or activity. A good time to visit here is in spring when rhododendron forests are in full bloom, and birds and butterflies are seen playing and dancing in the plenty. The next best season to is autumn.
