  • What is the trip about?

Tamang Heritage Trekking is located in the Central Himalayan region of Nepal, the beautiful Langtang Valley is just 30 kilometers northwest of Nepalese Capital. Despite sharing close proximity, Kathmandu Valley and Langtang Valley are a world apart. While the former is the center of the country’s administration and also the epitome of cultural and historic beauty, the latter is often hailed as the best-hidden gem of Nepal. In the medieval times, Nepal had had wars with Tibet several times for salt. Some of the prominent areas where the war took place to fall in the Langtang region of Nepal, which today is the third most popular trekking region after Everest and Annapurna.

The region used to be an ancient trade route to Tibet for bartering salt and mountain goats with the food grains from South. Today, it is a well-recognized and much-loved trekking region that witnesses hundreds of trekkers every year. Tamang Heritage Trekking is a one-of-a-kind, beautiful trek experience that combines the breathtaking natural scenery with unique, rich indigenous culture of the Tamang people, who have lived in the region for millenniums. A brainchild of Tourism for Rural Poverty Alleviation Program, the “Tamang Heritage Trekking” is a newly opened off the beaten track, which showcases the ancient lifestyle of the Tamang, Bhote, and Sherpa (Yolmo) culture.

The Tamangs, predominant inhabitants of the Langtang valley, are thought to be the descendants of Tibetans from Kerung who intermingled with the natives of Helambu. The region was a restricted region in the past due to its very close proximity with Tibet. Owing to this fact, the region’s beauty has not been scathed at all, still boasting of its natural, pure and wild state. Due to the remoteness, the region’s ancient way-of-life hasn’t changed despite closeness to Kathmandu. During the trek, we will be able to stay in intricately built stone houses with beautiful, ornately made carvings and porches. The true Himalayan craftmanship is reflected not only in the traditional houses, but in the beautiful ornaments, warm boots, and clothing adorned by these people.
Moreover, if you schedule your Tamang Heritage Trekking during festivals like Buddha Purnima or Sonam Lhosar, it will further enrich your experience by many folds.  In this way, we will be able to see and be part of a truly iconic civilization that has fostered despite the harshest terrains. During the trek, we will also visit several monasteries of high religious and historical significance. Another highlight of the trek is a visit to the historical fort in Rasuwagadi which stands as a testimonial to the historical ties between Nepal and Tibet. Similarly, if our trek falls during annual caravan journey, we will witness gigantic herds of yaks heading north or southwards for trading purposes.

In addition to being a cultural marvel, the region is also one of the most naturally endowed regions in Nepal. It is home to towering silver peaks like Langtang Lirung, Ganesh Himal Massif, Jugal Mountain, Gang Chhenpo, Lenpo Gang, and DorjeLakpa among others. It is also fondly known as the lake district as there are several serene and pristine lakes at high altitude such as Gosainkunda, Dudhkunda, and Parvati Kunda along with over 70 glaciers sourcing from the regal central mountains.

There are all kinds of hospitality amenities available in Dhunche and Syabrubesi. The Tamang heritage trekking trial is also speckled with inns, home stays, and lodges. The trek will commence and end from the town of Syabrubesi.

I never ever thought it would be a great trip on Tamang Heritage Trail Trekking.
Truly a wonderful short adventure to enjoy, much exciting exploring the rural traditional Tamang villages steeped with age-old heritage.

The scenery was so beautiful on daily walks, overlooking grand views of near snow-capped peaks of Ganesh and Langtang Himal. We enjoyed the pleasant treks and was surprised, the villagers received us with warm welcome and traditional hospitality. A great adventure of a week gaining much knowledge of the local impressive cultures and custom. It was great educational and scenic Tamang Heritage Trail trek, thanks to guide, porters and staff of Team Himalayas.

  • What is the trip about?

Tamang Heritage Trekking is located in the Central Himalayan region of Nepal, the beautiful Langtang Valley is just 30 kilometers northwest of Nepalese Capital. Despite sharing close proximity, Kathmandu Valley and Langtang Valley are a world apart. While the former is the center of the country’s administration and also the epitome of cultural and historic beauty, the latter is often hailed as the best-hidden gem of Nepal. In the medieval times, Nepal had had wars with Tibet several times for salt. Some of the prominent areas where the war took place to fall in the Langtang region of Nepal, which today is the third most popular trekking region after Everest and Annapurna.

The region used to be an ancient trade route to Tibet for bartering salt and mountain goats with the food grains from South. Today, it is a well-recognized and much-loved trekking region that witnesses hundreds of trekkers every year. Tamang Heritage Trekking is a one-of-a-kind, beautiful trek experience that combines the breathtaking natural scenery with unique, rich indigenous culture of the Tamang people, who have lived in the region for millenniums. A brainchild of Tourism for Rural Poverty Alleviation Program, the “Tamang Heritage Trekking” is a newly opened off the beaten track, which showcases the ancient lifestyle of the Tamang, Bhote, and Sherpa (Yolmo) culture.

The Tamangs, predominant inhabitants of the Langtang valley, are thought to be the descendants of Tibetans from Kerung who intermingled with the natives of Helambu. The region was a restricted region in the past due to its very close proximity with Tibet. Owing to this fact, the region’s beauty has not been scathed at all, still boasting of its natural, pure and wild state. Due to the remoteness, the region’s ancient way-of-life hasn’t changed despite closeness to Kathmandu. During the trek, we will be able to stay in intricately built stone houses with beautiful, ornately made carvings and porches. The true Himalayan craftmanship is reflected not only in the traditional houses, but in the beautiful ornaments, warm boots, and clothing adorned by these people.
Moreover, if you schedule your Tamang Heritage Trekking during festivals like Buddha Purnima or Sonam Lhosar, it will further enrich your experience by many folds.  In this way, we will be able to see and be part of a truly iconic civilization that has fostered despite the harshest terrains. During the trek, we will also visit several monasteries of high religious and historical significance. Another highlight of the trek is a visit to the historical fort in Rasuwagadi which stands as a testimonial to the historical ties between Nepal and Tibet. Similarly, if our trek falls during annual caravan journey, we will witness gigantic herds of yaks heading north or southwards for trading purposes.

In addition to being a cultural marvel, the region is also one of the most naturally endowed regions in Nepal. It is home to towering silver peaks like Langtang Lirung, Ganesh Himal Massif, Jugal Mountain, Gang Chhenpo, Lenpo Gang, and DorjeLakpa among others. It is also fondly known as the lake district as there are several serene and pristine lakes at high altitude such as Gosainkunda, Dudhkunda, and Parvati Kunda along with over 70 glaciers sourcing from the regal central mountains.

There are all kinds of hospitality amenities available in Dhunche and Syabrubesi. The Tamang heritage trekking trial is also speckled with inns, home stays, and lodges. The trek will commence and end from the town of Syabrubesi.

Nothing but the best, that was all about enjoyed the trek from beginning to the end, what a lovely experience. I searched all website and found Team Himalaya had this interesting Tamang Heritage Trail Trekking. It was a perfect trek and holiday for the whole family of 6 with young children. Team Himalaya provided the best services than we expected, the whole team of staff, guide and porters were equally supportive and helpful. What a surprise entering Gatlang received by Tamang village community with traditional welcome and having local food in Home Stay Huts and cottage. The whole trip was culturally fantastic, thanks to Team Himalaya for arranging this lovely scenic and cultural trek.

I never ever thought it would be a great trip on Tamang Heritage Trail Trekking.
Truly a wonderful short adventure to enjoy, much exciting exploring the rural traditional Tamang villages steeped with age-old heritage.

The scenery was so beautiful on daily walks, overlooking grand views of near snow-capped peaks of Ganesh and Langtang Himal. We enjoyed the pleasant treks and was surprised, the villagers received us with warm welcome and traditional hospitality. A great adventure of a week gaining much knowledge of the local impressive cultures and custom. It was great educational and scenic Tamang Heritage Trail trek, thanks to guide, porters and staff of Team Himalayas.
