Tamang Heritage Trail Trek

Duration: 15 Days   |  

Tamang heritage trail trekking is the unique and culturally rich trekking destination in Langtang trekking region where you can explore unexplored Tamang and Tibetan culture amidst spectacular Himalayan scenery.
A prologue like a trek giving you a hint of the exquisite natural beauty of Nepal, the Tamang Heritage trail trek takes you across some of the most beautiful sceneries in the whole country, with a beautiful blend of the rich Tamang culture. Centuries ago Nepal gallantly fought with Tibet for salt. The place where this war took place is in the Langtang Region of Nepal, the third most popular trekking trail in Nepal. Back in the days, traders from Tibet bartered salts and mountain goats for meat (change) with foodstuffs along this route which is why the Tamang heritage trail is intricately connected to Tibet. Developed by the Tourism for Rural Poverty Alleviation Program (RPAP), the "Tamang Heritage Trail" is a rather new introduction to those keen to explore and traverse. This off the beaten track highlights a peculiarly ancient lifestyle with a unique blend of picture-perfect scenery and healing baths in natural hot water springs. Inhabiting this are mostly Tibetans who came from Kerung in Tibet and have settled in Nepal. In earlier days, the citizenship of Nepal would not be offered to real Tibetans, which is why they gave up their ethnicity and started writing Tamang, which is what they have still been writing till date. However, their Tibetan cultural norms and traditions have still been kept intact.

The Tamang heritage trail trek is just a day-long bus journey from the ancient capital city of Kathmandu. With astounding Tamang rituals, intricate Tibetan cultures, fun-filled festivals, traditional architecture, ethnic costumes, local Syabru dances, this trekking tour gives you an experience of a lifetime. The viewpoint at Goljung Pass, from where the aerial views of Langtang and Kerung (Tibet) can be awe-inspiring. Observe and learn a few steps of the Syabru, and Mane at Goljung and Gatlang VDCs. Purchase some exclusive handicraft items and carry back a few physical memories. After tiring hours of trekking, relax and rejuvenate yourself at hot bath in the healing hot-water spring at Tatopani before reaching Nagthali. The ancient monasteries and houses adorned with rich wood engravings at Thuman are truly a treat to the eyes. At Briddim, one gets to experience the famous Tamang hospitality with homestay facilities in 24 houses. After the Tamang heritage trail, we will make our way towards Langtang.

A narrow valley situated 75 km north of Kathmandu and close to the Tibetan border, Langtang takes you amongst beautiful and stunning snow peaks of the Ganesh and Langtang ranges. As you walk along the Langtang Khola (river), you will land at the settlement of Kyanjin Gompa at 3900m which happens to be the furthest place to find lodges up in the valley.
