Tamang Heritage Trek - Cultural Heritage Trail in Langtang

Tamang Heritage Trek is a unique cultural heritage trail trekking route highlighting the 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 primarily Tamang, whose culture and crafts have remained unchanged. All these craftsmanship, dress, traditionally built stone households and 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 trek 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 relationship that has existed for many centuries. We spend some nights at Homestay with local people to explore and experience their culture, lifestyle, and tradition close hand, which is rare on most of the other trekking routes. Finally, we take a return drive to Kathmandu Sybrubesi Kathmandu to start and end this Tamang Heritage homestay cultural trek in Nepal.
