Overview

The Tamang Heritage Trekking Trails (10 Days)…cherry trip through rhododendron forests as we hike through scenic mountainous rural villages…

The Tamang Heritage Trekking is a newly discovered trail in Nepal. It is a cultural trek through vibrant Tamang villages in Langtang with beautiful panoramic views of Mt. Ganesh and Langtang range which lies in the northern part of Kathmandu near Langtang National Park.

In Nepal, this trekking is the perfect way of enjoying your life with awesome memories. The lush mid-hill villages of Nepal and the culture of the people who live here are shown in Tamang Heritage trekking with towering peaks, generous forests, hanging bridges and random snow leopard sightings in the epic background. Our 10 days route is a great introduction to the beautiful Langtang region and the unique culture of the Tamang community.

During this journey, you will also discover a gripping Tibetan history and the control of Tibetan culture in this region. You can also see the trading routes of Tibet and Nepal from where the two countries import and export goods. People living in this region are mostly Buddhist and grow some hardy grains and vegetables. Their daily activities are agriculture including raising livestock and trade. In this region, people wear attractive colorful costumes and their houses are decorated with fabulous woodcarvings.

This trek offers dazzling views of snowcapped mountains to make this journey memorable and also trekkers get chances to observe Syabru, Mane and other thrilling local dances at Goljung, Brimdang and Gatlang villages which are located near the Tibetan border. Also, you can experience the famous Tamang Hospitality at Birddim where homestay facilities are provided.

After this, we head towards the narrow valley of Kyanjin down to the Langtang River relishing magnificent views. Our trekking then ends where it started at the same point in Syabrubesi.

Traveller’s Review


I booked this trek because I wanted an original and rather unspoilt natural and cultural experience, and, as I was constrained with my time (I had only 7 days, two of which were for going back and forth), I did not want to be concerned about finding out about organisational things such as getting to the Langtang region finding a place to stay etc, so I decided for this fully planned and organised package.

Well, saying that everything turned out exactly as I had hoped for is not enough. There was not a single day, when I had to worry about any (organisational or other) matters. Starting with being picked up at the airport, followed by a transfer to the Langtang region the next day, the actual trek, being brought back to my hotel in Kathmandu and finally being accompanied to the airport on the day of my departure, everything was very smoothly and comfortably organised and I always felt assured by the caring attention of the whole team. Thus I could completely focus on the marvels of nature of this great country.

During the trek I was accompanied by two guides, Ram and Aasha, who tried to explain the surroundings and answer my questions, whenever possible and also did everything to make this whole trip an astonishing and memorable experience. Without any doubts I would always recommend GHT (Glorious Himalaya Trekking Team) and this trip to anyone interested in exploring the nature and culture of quite untouched places in the border region between Nepal and Tibet. I am convinced that this will not have been the last time that I visited Nepal and for the next time I already know which agency to choose.

Thanks for this amazing trip and for sharing a part of your country with me.
