Tamang Heritage & Langtang Trek

Tamang Heritage village where people are living

Tamang Heritage Trek offers a wonderful blend of Himalayan adventure and warm Himalayan culture. As one of the more cultural treks in the Langtang region of Nepal, it showcases the richness of Tamang heritage through the temples and people that make up this vibrant and colorful land. On this trek, we come into close quarters with the Tamang traditions, lighting up our hearts with many sights, scents and natural wonders. We will make our way through several sacred lakes whose waters are thought to purify the body, over high mountain passes, rugged trails, vindicating panoramas and great magical forests reputed to hold the keys to the mysteries of everlasting youth.

This circular route will begin in SyabruBesi and wheel around the western region of Langtang to end by winding down through the Langtang valley to the outskirts of Kathmandu.
