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.

“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.”

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • How much should my backpack weigh?

    A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.  

  • Do I need a porter?

    The decision to hire a porter is up to you and usually based on your fitness level and/or budget. One porter can be shared between two people and can carry up to 25 kg. Many trekkers hire a porter to have a more comfortable trek.

  • Do I require a porter for carrying water?

    On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.

  • When should I arrive in Kathmandu before the tour?

    We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the start day of the trek because the tour operators usually require one working day to arrange trekking permits. Arrive earlier if you want to explore Kathmandu on your own or acclimate to any time differences.
