About Trip:

With the main focus on the cultures and traditions of the ethnic Tamang people of the Langtang valley, the Tamang Heritage Trail is a beguiling journey of amazing mountain peaks, glaciated acreages, and untouched settlements that whose people still practice the ancient Himalayan way of life. One of the best trekking regions of Nepal is the gorgeous Langtang region, and the Tamang Heritage Trail is one of the best off-the-beaten-path treks of said region.

The 16-days journey begins as you are introduced to the rich culture in the Kathmandu valley and make way to Sybrubensi, the starting point of the Tamang Heritage Trail. With the trail that diverts away from the Langtang National Park and instead meanders towards the Tibetan border, the Tamang Heritage Trail presents many dainty settlements and Tamang villages like Gatlang, Goljung, Chilime, Thuman, Timure and Briddhim. Trekkers can experience unique customs of the people and gain insight into the lives of the ethnic groups. With the perseverance of ancient cultures and traditions intact, the trekking journey presents experiences of unique rituals and practices of the local Tamangs. Moreover, the path is also adorned with many monasteries, Gumbas, Chaityas, and Bihars that line the trail quite beautifully. One of the unique features of the Tamang Heritage Trail is the settlements where the houses are decorated opulently with intricate carvings. The people of the villages weave baskets and hand-make a wide array of handicrafts which the trekkers can enjoy as they pass through. The people also dance and sing old folk songs in unique dialects and dress up in traditional Tamang attires. The journey is quite suited for trekkers who are looking to explore the cultural aspect of Nepal. In addition, trekkers can also enjoy the cerulean lakes along the journey, like the Parvati Kunda, along with majestic views of mountains like Jugal and Ganesh Himal peaks. 

It is an easy cultural trekking journey that can be done during the time of the spring and autumn months. Be our guests at Destination Unlimited as we accompany you through the trail into the outer reaches of the Langtang Valley. We put your safety and comfort on the top of our priority so that your travel can meet the expectations of a fantasy trek you made.
