Tamang Heritage trek

Tamang Heritage Trek is a community-based trek between Ganesh Himal and Langtang range. It is a trek to find the natural beauty of the Himalayas and the ethnic culture of Tamang villages in Langtang. It is the newly discovered trail in Nepalese Trekking. The trek in the lap of Himalaya's view with the local culture will provide you with life the memories. Trekking with the towering peaks, forest with red rhododendrons, suspicious bridge and snow leopard sighting is what you get in this trek. 

Tamang Heritage trail lies in a restricted area previously and was opened up to visitors lately.  Tamang people in this trail are culturally closer to Tibetan culture,  that’s because it touches the border of Tibet in the north. Tamang is an ethnic group of Nepal, hugely settled on the lap of Langtang range, migrated from Burma via Tibet during the 7th/8th centuries. 

You can experience the off beaten track in a recently developed route with the majestic mountain views. On the second day of trekking, you can release the tiredness in the natural hot spring at Tatopani. It is believed that taking a dip in these natural hot springs can cure your pain and aches.

The heartwarming hospitality of people in Tamang villages with their colorful dresses, sceneries of ancient monasteries and prosperous wood engravings in the house makes the trip precious.

The region offers the beautiful landscape of alpine terrain, flat meadows and rhododendron forest (chief vegetation). The region also provides the opportunity to see different flora and fauna. Endangered animals such as red pandas, black bears, musk deer, and leopards. It also exhibits various species of vegetation, birds, and butterflies.

The trek takes you through Tatopani, Rasuwa, Thulo Syabru, and many other Tamang villages.
