Tamang Heritage Trek is a cultural trek through Tamang villages in Langtang with beautiful panoramas of Ganesh and Langtang Range. The verdant midland villages of Nepal, beautiful mountains and the culture of the people who live here are on show in Tamang Heritage Trek.
Tamang Heritage Trek trail passes through the traditional Tamang village where their culture (here, they are from Tibetan origin which is totally different to Tamang from any where else in Nepal) have been remained unchanged since the beginning of the human settlement. Warm and welcoming hosted locals, their elaborate costumes, rich architecture of their mountain houses, the ancient monasteries and places of prayer makes you feel really different during this trek. In addition, this does not only provide the cultural experience but also offers beautiful landscapes of alpine terrain, flat meadows, and rhododendron forests.
Tamang Heritage Trek starts from Gatlang and visits Chilime, Thuman, Timure and Briddim. The trail may end back at Syabrubesi or follow Langtang trek from Briddim village via Khamjim. One can visit a Tamang monastery and the beautiful Parvati Kunda (Kunda means a holy lake) at Gatlang. Goljung has an ancient monastery, the oldest one in Tamang Heritage Trek. From the viewpoint at Bahundanda, one can see a panorama of Langtang (7227 meters), Ganesh Himal (7422 meters) and Sanjen Himal Ranges. Bathing in the hot, healing waters of the natural spring at Tatopani en route from Gatlang to Chilime is another highlight of Tamang Heritage Trek.

Tamang heritage Trail trek in Langtang
Hello Himal and Team; This short Tamang Heritage trek is engraved in our heart forever. We will never forget the sincereness of the peoples, who are so warm-hearted and so hospital. We also will remember the great and wide sceneries and the inviting guesthouses with their lovely meals. But also to be surrounded by silentness which gives you the feeling of being really far away from hectic and stressful civilisation. We are very independent travellers so it’s always a question if you get along with your guide. But we could not have been more luckier then with Rajan. We like to thank Rajan for his joyful and always positive radiation, his knowledge, his helping hand and for being attentive every moment. Suresh for his lovely smile and his silent force. And Himal for being a beautiful warm and professional person. Thank you so much and we really hope to see you all again!!! Jacqueline vissers and Lex from Netherlands 5th March, 2015
On recommendation booked with visit Himalaya Treks.
First contact was via the mail. What a service! Quick response and everything was arranged when I came to the agency. Together with guide Lok we did the tamang heritage trail and gosaikunda. This was totally super. Good combination between culture and nature. To bad that there are less tourist after the earthquake. Because the villages are still beautiful (different but still details left) and the Tamang people are lovely. The days varied from 5 to 6 hours. This was perfect because we had time in the afternoon to visit things or just to rest. Thank you Lok and visit Himalaya Treks. I would definitely make another booking in the future. Marleen Timmers from Nederland 29th Nov, 2017 Really nice people en amazing trekking.
