Tamang Heritage Trek

Description

Explore the untouched natural splendor and cultural beauty of the Langtang region with the Tamang Heritage Trail. The trail is named after ‘Tamang’, one of the ethnic groups in Nepal of Tibetan origin. As guests walk along the wild terrain of the Tamang Heritage trail they will have an opportunity to get deep insights into Tibetan culture.  Although the trail is located in the popular Langtang region, it has a relatively smaller crowd than other trails and offers travelers the chance to pass through alpine terrain, meadows and rhododendron forests before entering Tamang settlements where they can share experiences with the locals and learn about their unique culture. Tamangs are famous for their unique colorful outifits, and their houses are decorated with beautiful woodcarvings. 
After sightseeing several UNESCO world heritage sites in Kathmandu Valley, guests will drive to Syabrubesi where the actual trek begins and ends. Travelers can admire panoramic views of the  Himalayan peaks including Ganesh Himal, Langtang Lirung and several others. They will also get to visit Tatopani where they can relax and enjoy a bathe in the local hot springs before reaching Nagthali.
The Tamang Heritage trek is moderately difficult and most individuals with reasonable levels of fitness who can walk at least 5-7 hrs a day can enjoy the experience. Autumn (September to November) and Spring (March to May) are the best seasons for this trek considering weather and temperature, however Winter is also an option.
