Tamang Heritage Trek Overview

Situated in the north of Kathmandu valley in Rasuwa district, the Tamang Heritage trek is one of the most off-beat trails in the region. Despite being off-beat, it is perhaps the most accessible trekking region from Kathmandu city. Dominated by the Langtang Himal range, the Tamang Heritage trekking trail is a bordering area to the famous Langtang valley and Gosaikunda trails which also lie inside Langtang National Park. As the name suggests, The Tamang Heritage Trek is a trek that takes you through some ancient Tamang villages close to the Tibetan border. The Tamang people have historically been one of the most marginalized ethnic groups in Nepal, and the Tamang heritage trail originally was opened to bring a source of revenue to the Tamang people in this area as it is one of the remote regions and closest to Tibet border “Kerong”. You get to experience some of the most beautiful scenery of hills and mountains as you pass through terraced green farmland, lush forests, and ancient traditional villages during the trek. A perfect combination of serene nature with culture, the Tamang heritage trekking trail has not been able to gain the popularity it deserves compared to other trails of the region. Which somehow makes the trail even more attractive and tranquil as you get to witness the majestic view of giant mountains all to yourself and experience the authentic culture and lifestyle of the locals. 

The 9-days trek starts with a drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi, which is the starting and ending point of the trek. From Syabrubesi, you'll begin to trek on foot passing through several villages like; Gatlang, Tatopani, Thuman, Briddim, and coming back to Syabrubesi. The trek is of medium length and moderate grade in terms of difficulty, suitable for beginner trekkers as well. If you're seeking a trekking trail full of history, culture, and natural heritages, the Tamang heritage trek culminates it all.
