About Tamang Heritage Trail Trek
The Tamang Heritage Trail Trek is a newly developed destination through a beautiful area with traditional culture and spectacular scenery. The area gets away from the beaten path and has fewer tourist visits than the more popular areas. Getting away from the main routes allows visitors to get closer to the people and natural surroundings.
The Tamang Heritage Trail Trekking visits many picturesque villages surrounded by fertile farmland. The people in this area are mainly of the Tamang ethnicity. Tamang follows a customary way of life that follows both Hindu and Buddhist practices. The area adjoins the renowned Langtang Region the third most popular trekking area of Nepal. Despite being just to the west of a major trekking region, the off-path trail maintains a more traditional lifestyle and the welcoming people will receive you warmly. Along the way, enjoy thrilling mountain views and relaxing hot springs where we take a pleasant bath and soak in the natural hot waters.
The journey to the Tamang Heritage Trail Trek starting point begins with a scenic drive from Kathmandu with views of the majestic natural scenery including terraced fields and glimpses of snowy peaks. We register our documents at the national park check post in Dhunche, a lofty town above the Trishuli River. We then continue by vehicle to Syabrubesi, a busy settlement at the meeting point of the Bhote Kosi riverand Langtang River.
From here, we travel west to the idyllic Gatlang village populated by people of the Tamang ethnicity. Tamang has a unique language of the Tibeto-Burman familyand them also customary clothing and a distinct lifestyle. They make up over five percent of the total population of Nepal. From Gatling, the route passes through more villages to a spectacular viewpoint and then more Tamang villages surrounded by terraced fields.
We then follow a route back toSyabrubesi and make a scenic drive back to Kathmandu or we continue to the Langtang Trek.
