Tamang Heritage Trail - 09 Days

The Tamang Heritage Trail is a newly opened trekking route in the Langtang region of Nepal. It offers a great opportunity to discover this beautiful part of the country and the unique culture of the Tamang people, the descendants of settlers from Tibet. About a day’s bus ride from Kathmandu, it follows a circular route from the green foothills and rhododendron forests of the Ganesh Himal at Syabrubesi and though the high grasslands around Nagthali Danda via the Goljung valley, to reach the villages of Thuman and Briddim on the old trade route into Tibet.

 

The trail takes you through picturesque village surrounded by terraced hillsides, peaceful isolated valleys, and along riverside paths and mountain ridges, giving magnificent views along the way of the snow covered peaks of the Himalayas. The views from the Goljung Pass across the Langtang region and into Tibet never fail to be awe inspiring. Combine this with the colorful Tamang festivals and traditional costumes, the distinctive architecture and the hospitality of the villagers, and you have a recipe for a stimulating and unforgettable experience of this little known part of the world.
 

In the small town of Tatopani, set in a steep wooded gorge, you can bathe in the natural hot springs, ideal for relaxing after a day the trail. There are lodges along the way for overnight stops, although most accommodation is in local homes, where you will enjoy joining in the activities of your host family and share their evening meal, setting off in the morning with a good Nepali breakfast.
