Tamang Heritage Trail - Cultural Heritage Trek in Langtang

Tamang Heritage Trek is a special culture heritage trail trekking route that highlights an ancient rich cultural heritage of the Tamang people in Langtang valley - a Tibetan origin ethnic group. Previously a restricted region near the Tibetan border, the unexplored northern Langtang valley has recently been developed into the Tamang Heritage Trail. The people in this area are mostly of Tamang 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 profile at its best.

We pass many traditional local villages and monasteries that have remained unchanged on this Tamang heritage trekking route in the Langtang region. The panoramic view of mount Langtang, Kerung and Ganesh Himal is simply stunning. A fort at Rasuwagadi is a historical reminder of the Nepal Tibet relation that has existed for many centuries. We spend some nights at Homestay with local people to explore and experience their culture, lifestyle, and tradition at close hand which is rare on most of the other trekking routes. We take a return drive to Kathmandu Sybrubesi Kathmandu to start and end this Tamang Heritage Homestay trekking in Nepal.
