Introduction & Overview of Tamang Heritage Trail Trek

Tamang Heritage Trail is a newly opened and exciting trekking route situated between Langtang and Ganesh Himal. The trekking region is situated about 30km north of Kathmandu. As the name suggest, the trek covers astonishing natural beauty along with rich cultural heritage preserved by Tamang ethnic community.

Langtang valley, also known as the “Valley of Glaciers” offers a plenty of wildlife, rich cultural practice and unique lifestyle. We will be trekking through Tamang villages with its life, culture and crafts which have remained untouched from few centuries. The trail grants wilderness at its extreme through beautiful alpine landscape, flat pastureland and dense rhododendron forest. The main residents of the area are believed to be descendants of Tibetans from Kerung who mingled with Tamang of the Helambu area.  

The trek starts with short drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi. We will be trekking through picturesque villages, terraced slopes and pristine valleys. In route we will be blessed with panoramic mountain vista of nearby peaks and drench in the natural hot springs in Tatopani. Continuing the walk toward north we will be visiting local fort, monastery and exquisite local architecture of Tamang people. As we come to the end of the trek we will be enjoying home-stay experience in Briddim.

Stopping over local Tamang monasteries and holy Parvatikunda Lake at Gatlang brings adrenaline pumping experience to the trekking.

Additional Information

Stay Safe

  • Altitude Sickness: The main and common risk while trekking above about 2500m is Altitude sickness. Altitude sickness is caused by acute exposure to low partial pressure of oxygen at high altitude. The available amount of oxygen to sustain mental and physical alertness decreases with altitude. Available oxygen drops as the air density itself, the number of molecules (of both oxygen and nitrogen) per given volume, drops as altitude increases. So don’t ignore, if you have any symptoms then descending to a lower altitude is the only option.
  • Water: Have some means to purify water, iodine or a fine ceramic filter are the best options. The streams should be considered polluted and whilst bottled water is often available, the disposal of plastic bottles is a problem.

Electricity in Nepal

Nepal is a developing country, Outside of major cities area electricity on trekking can be scares. You should have to pay 100-800 NRs per hour to charge goods on many lodges and also many tea-house treks, including in Annapurna base camp trek, Everest Base camp trek and many others treks also. Chargers often won't work on low power solar systems you find right up in the mountains so u can buy alternative bayonet light to electricity power plug converter, which will only works in low voltage is highlow. The standard Nepalese electrical outlet is a three-pronged triangle so bring three-pronged triangle chargers.

Tamang HreitageTrial 2017!    I just returned from Nepal after doing Tamang Heritage trial. This trek was offered by Actual Adventure and I’m glad that I did it and somehow helped in the improvement of local’s life which was beyond my imagination. The region was near to Kathmandu valley yet not touched by the modernization in any aspect. The people, their tradition and culture had remained intact over centuries. The views were mind blowing and people were very f... See more riendly and hospitable. My guide Lakpa helped me interact with the locals and became my translator. Overall it was a trek of lifetime.  Finland See less...
