The Tamang Heritage Trail is an exciting trekking journey between the Ganesh Himal and Langtang. The region covered by this trail is considered to boast of a beautiful culture which is steeped in Tibetan tradition. The locals are among some of the friendliest people you will ever see and this gentle trek is perhaps the best way to explore terraced fields, majestic valleys and stunning natural beauty. You also have the option to soak in hot springs or visit local forts and monasteries while in the area. This trekking tour is sure to renew your sense of adventure with its unique combination of historical and cultural heritage, spectacular Himalayan views and the experience of Tamang and Tibetan cultures.

The newly developed trekking trail starts from Syabrubesi, which is a daylong (about 132 kilometres) bus journey from Kathmandu to the north. The trek lasts eight days. Beginning from Syabrubesi, the route passes through Goljung, Gatlang, Chilime, Tatopani, Rasuwagadhi and Briddim and ends at Syabrubesi.

The Tamang heritage trekking trail has been developed by the Tourism for Rural Poverty Alleviation Programme (TRPAP), a pilot programme run by the Government of Nepal with the technical and financial support from United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Department for International Development and SNV/Nepal.

The local inhabitants are Tamangs. Their culture is largely marked by Tibetan influences. Briddim is a living museum reflecting traditional Tamang culture and lifestyle.

Great first trekking experience

“We (a group of five students) really enjoyed our 5 day trekking tour through Langtang Valley - but also the two days of sightseeing that were included in the package. We were driven around in a private jeep and had the opportunity to see various temples. Moreover, we were already accompanied by our trekking guide during the first day of sightseeing before the actual trek so that we had the opportunity to get to know each other beforehand. Our guide was highly experienced and had climbed Mount Everest already multiple times. He was very friendly and caring. For example, he organized additional blankets for us when it was very cold at night. Furthermore, during the walks, he adapted to our pace and let us take breaks when we needed them.
All in all, we can recommend this trek to anyone who is interested in trekking.”
