About Trip

The Tamang Heritage Trail is a pretty new route that’s grown in popularity in the Langtang zone. The route exposes a unique ethnic culture that’s found within the Tamang community in this area who traces their roots to Tibet & follows mystical customs & traditions of yore; this community has lived most of their lives based on ancient superstitions that are as old as these mountains. The trail, relatively new, was said to have been discovered by an inquisitive trekker who lost his way & stumbled on this route, & discovered these Tamang settlements, who till this time, had hardly seen any tourists & live within a culture literally untouched or influenced by westernization.

This venture is a charming outing that presents some fantastic mountain views, snowy alpine territory, green meadows & lush rhododendron forest which gives us the experience of a vacation in the wilderness within the shortest possible time, & ever so close to the ancient capital of Kathmandu. As we clamber into Tamang villages, we get upfront opportunities to watch close-up the lifestyles, culture and crafts such as bamboo baskets and mats for which this place is well known.

The Tamang Heritage trek also gives us grandstand vistas of Langtang Lirung (7245m), Langtang Kerung, Chumse Danda ridge (5122m), Dorje Lakpa (6989m), Jugal Himal, Ganesh Himal, Paldor peak, Shringi Himal, Manaslu and Sanjen Himal ranges. Glaciers of different shapes and high altitude lakes namely: Gosiankunda, Parvatikunda, Bhairavkunda and Dudhkunda are a part of this astonishing Heritage trek that is related to a very interesting community that awakens our own traditions to a world familiar to us, but yet unknown to some of our own fellow beings... this trek will make up a wonderful holiday that will linger in the memory for a long time to come…
