Langtang Heritage Trail - Combination of Tamang Heritage with Kenjin Gompa

This Langtang Heritage Trek is a specially designed off the beaten trail that highlights an ancient rich Tamang cultural heritage trail combining it with picturesque scenery of secret Langtang valley. A previously restricted region near the Tibetan border, the unexplored northern Langtang valley has recently been developed into the Langtang Tamang Heritage Trail. The people in this area are mostly of Tamang, Tibetan origin, whose culture and crafts have remained unchanged. All these craftsmanship, dress, traditionally built stone households and the beautifully carved wooden porches reflect the solitude and the serenity of the Himalayan scenery.

Having explored the cultural heritage sites in Kathmandu valley we take a drive to Syabrubesi to start our Langtang heritage hike. We pass many traditional settlements and monasteries that have remained unchanged. Panoramic views of Mt. Langtang, Kerung, and Ganesh Himal are stunning. A fort at Rasuwagadi is a historical reminder of the Nepal Tibet relation that has existed for many centuries. A special arrangement of Homestay programs at some places enhances the cultural experienced. Thus allowing you to have close interaction with the local people, which is rare on a normal trekking route. We take a drive back to Kathmandu to end the memorable Langtang heritage trek.
