About
Tamang Heritage trek is a newly opened popular trekking destination situated north of Kathmandu valley. It is an interesting trek through Tamang villages and settlements. Their culture is virtually untouched. This is off-the-beaten trail which is ideal for those people who wants to explore the untouched culture and traditional life style of indigenous Tamang and Tibetan people as the trekking route covers culture, religion and daily lifestyle of Tamang community of Langtang region. During this trekking, you can enjoy the dramatic views of Langtang Lirung (7245m.), Langtang Kerung, Chimse Danda ridge crossed by Ganjala Pass (5122m.), Dorje Lakpa (6989m.), Jugal Himal, Paldor peak, Ganesh Himal, , Manaslu, Shringi Himal, and Sanjen Himal ranges. The views of the Himalayan snow-capped mountains will be unforgettable. Tamang ritual, Tibetan traditional culture, festival and local Syabru dance makes this heritage trek very popular and unique.

What to expect
  • Langtang trekking is the most easily accessible highland sanctuary from the capital. It is sandwiched between the main Himalayan range to the north and a slightly lower range of snowy peaks to the south. It is one of the lesser spoiled national parks located on the northern part of Nepal. In many ways this is real pity because Langtang offers pristine forests, rich bird life, monastic culture and above all some spectacular mountain views of the Langtang Himal topped by the shapely Langtang Lirung. During this trek, you can discover rough history of Tibetan ancestors. In the earlier days they came from Tibet and changed their ethnicity in Tamang in order to get Nepali citizenship. They are descendants from Tibet and have hardly seen any tourists. Their descendants are now Buddhists and living on agriculture and trade. This trek is very famous itself by its tropical culture of local Tamang people, beautiful architecture of the mountain houses and ancient monasteries. The 12-day trip begins with a drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi and takes you to the remote region and untouched area that is still away from modern civilization. Next, day you start your trek into the mountainous region passing through Goljung, Gatlang, Tatopani, Thuman, Timure, Briddim, and Lama Hotel, Lang tang Valley and Kyanjin Gompa respectively. Goljung, Gatlang and Langtang are traditional Tamang villages culminating cultural features. The visit to beautiful local Tamang monastery and the holy Parvati Kunda Lake at Gatlang adds delight to your trekking. Throughout your journey you will be rewarded with outstanding views of the Himalayas and get acquainted with the culture and traditions of the Tamangs who live in close vicinity to the mighty Langtang. There is a beautiful view point at Nagthali pass from where you can see the Langtang Himalayan range and Kerung (Tibet). The Tamang heritage valley bids swift mountain streams, pine forest, grassy downs and meadows strewn rugged rock and snow-capped peaks, with daisies and wild primrose.  Outlined Itinerary Day 01: Drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi (1,550m/5,100ft) – 8/9 hours drive Day 02: Trek Syabrubesi to Goljung (1960m) Day 03: Trek Goljung to Gatlang (2240m) Day 04: Trek Gatlang to Tatopani (2607m/8550 ft) – 6/7 hours walk Day 05: Trek Tatopani to Thuman (2,400m/7,874 ft) via Brimdang and Nagthali - 6 hours walk Day 06: Thuman to Briddim (2,345m/7,693 ft) - 6 hours walk Day 07: Briddim to Lama Hotel (2470m) - 6 hours walk Day 08: Lama Hotel to Langtang village (3,430m/11,253ft) – 6/7 hours walk Day 09: Langtang village to Kyanjin Gompa (3,870m/12,697ft) - 4 hours walk Day 10: Trek back to Lama Hotel (2,380m/7,830ft) – 4/5 hours walk Day 11: Trek ends: Lama Hotel to Syabrubesi - 5 hours walk Day 12: Drive to Kathmandu

Unforgettable weaks in Nepal thanks to Nature Trail!
Oct 2018 • Solo
In October 2018 I booked two treks by Nature Trail: the Tamang Heritage Trek and the Poonhill Trek.
Already in preparation of my trips I received excellent support from Bishnu who planned and organized the treks for me , responding to all my requests, when I was there. All was really good organized , from the airport pick up untill the airport transfer at the end of my stay.Thanks to my both guides Toby and Sherpa, who carried my backpack and looked for my safety and made the treks for me to a memorable experience.Toby could also explain the plants and animals along the way. He told me a lot about the history, culture and way of life in Nepal and made contact with the Tamang people. I enjoyed this trek much more, because there were only few tourists( I met just five!), the Tamang are such amazing people with a traditonal way of life and there is a spectacular landscape.
For me this stay was an unforgettable experience and I can really recommend Nature Trail. I am sure I will come again! Thank you, Bishnu,for all! Verena K.
