Tamang Heritage Trek Overview
Tamang Heritage Trek is unique and outstanding trekking near the Langtang trekking route in the north-central part of Nepal. It is different than other trekking as it leads you through the heart of Buddhist-influenced communities that have faith in traditional culture, festivals, and hospitality. During the trek, you will experience the untouched lifestyle of the rural countryside and stay in a local homestay, which further elaborates on the typical aspects of the indigenous lifestyle of Tamang and Bon Po religious followers.
Overview of the Tamang Heritage Trekking
The Tamang Heritage trek kicks off from Syaphrubesi, a commercial town in the Rasuwa district. It is accessible after about 7 hours road drive exploring the hilly gorges and Himalayan views. The Tamang Heritage Trail splits from the Langtang valley trekking route, which you can be connected after completing the Tamang heritage route.
Relatively less crowded and more fascinating, trekking on the Tamang Heritage Trail passes through the typical ancient communities. They include Goljung, Gatlang, Tatopani, Brimding, and Thuman. Nagthali on the way is an excellent viewpoint of the Himalayas and the hilly gorges, which used to be a famous meditation center for the local monks and priests. The fresh countryside, greeneries, typical activities of the local people, and undisturbed lifestyles are the major highlights of this trek. Homestay experience allows you to dig into the traditional Tamang culture, food, drinks, profession, and lifestyles. In Gatlang and Brimdang you will get an opportunity to experience homestay service. The Kerong border is another attraction for the trekkers, which is the main trade route with Tibet.
Can you manage a few days more along the trip? We recommend Langtang valley trekking that can be adjoined with this trek. It is connected to the Lama Hotel and leads you through the rhododendron, bamboo, and orchard forest. The entire region is prosperous in Tibetan Buddhist culture and lifestyles. The dazzling Himalayan peaks of Langtang Lirung and its surrounding snow-capped mountains can be explored from a closer distance.
