Tamang Heritage Trail Trek is a recently opened area, west of the Langtang Valley. Tamang Heritage Trail Trek let you interact with these people of Tibetan origin along with the trekking. Mountain Lodge or homes and experience first-hand the warmth and spirit of the Tamang culture; their Buddhist beliefs and their handicrafts. Your hosts, farmers supplying produce, cultural entertainers and handicraft sales all benefit; with some money going into social funds. One distinct advantage is that Tamang Heritage Trail Trek is still “off the beaten track” which is also known as a non-touristic trekking trail. Tamang Heritage Trail Trek winds over ridges trekking through farmlands, marshy grasslands, subtropical forests and highlands that offer magnificent views of snow-covered peaks. The forests are home to Langur monkeys, bears, pandas and countless birds.
Tamang Heritage Trail Trek begins 132km north of Kathmandu, about an 8 -10 hour bus ride. Exciting road trip to get to Syabrubensi. We cross the Dhotre Khola, before turning north up the Trisuli Nadi to Syabru Besi (Lower Syabru): the starting point of the trek. This is an interesting village at the confluence of the Bhote Kosi and Langtang Kola, below which it becomes the Trisuli Nadi. The first day’s trail upwards, to a ridge and a walk to the viewpoint of the day Rongba Bhanjyang and another 45 min. easy walk to Lunch. And then on up to Gatlang; the largest Tamang village in the Langtang Region. The second day offers relaxation in the community hot springs at Tatopani and the third day leads to tranquil and satisfying views of the High Himalaya from the Nagthali Ghyang ridge before descending to Thuman. Staying in a family home at Briddim, complete with dinner and a demonstration of traditional dances and local handicrafts are the features of the Tamang Heritage Trail route.
