Tamang Heritage Trail Trek

Tamang Heritage Trail Trek

This is a wonderful introduction to trekking in Nepal among some of the most beautiful scenery in the whole kingdom, with rich tamang culture. Many years ago Nepal, fought with Tibet for salt and some of the largest areas where this war took place is in the Langtang Region of Nepal, wherein lies the third most popular trekking trail in Nepal. This area is associated to Tibet and the trails in this region were used by traders from Tibet bartering in Salt and mountain goats for meat with produce from the south.

Developed by the Tourism for Rural Poverty Alleviation Program, the "Tamang Heritage Trail" is the newly developed tourism product, off the beaten track, which highlights an ancient lifestyle combining it with picturesque scenery and healing baths in natural hot springs.

The people of this region are mostly Tibetans who came from Kerung in Tibet across the border and settled in Nepal. In earlier days, the citizenship of Nepal would not be offered to real Tibetans, so they changed their ethnicity to Tamang, which is what they still write till date. The cultural and traditions of these people are similar to the Tibetan across the border.

This trekking destination is just a day long bus journey from the capital, City of Kathmandu. This trekking tour provides varieties of experience. Tamang rituals, Tibetan culture, festivals, traditional architecture, costumes, local Syabru dances make the exposure to this culture very unique. There is a view point at Goljung Pass, from where views of Langtang and Kerung (Tibet) can be awe inspiring. Visitors will get an opportunity to observe Syabru, Mane and other local dances at Goljung and Gatlang VDCs. The villages also sell exclusive handicraft items like traditional caps, mufflers and other items.

Tourists can enjoy hot bath in the healing hot-water spring at Tatopani before reaching Nagthali, where the stay is a sole experience. The ancient monasteries and houses decorated with rich wood engravings at Thuman is an memorable experience.

At Briddim one gets to experience the famous Tamang hospitality, where there is home stay facility in 24 houses. After the Tamang heritage trail we will head towards the Langtang. Langtang is a narrow valley situated 75 kms north of Kathmandu close to the Tibetan border.
