More Facts Less Facts

Our Tamang Heritage Trek is an awesome full-package Himalayan adventure. Taking on this wonderful journey, you’ll be exposed to jaw-dropping peaks and fascinating mountain village life, and all of the culture and natural wonders that come with it. The Tamang Heritage Trek, which lies in the Langtang region of Nepal, boasts accommodations that are not exactly luxurious, but that, in certain ways, go above and beyond many peoples’ standards.  You will mostly be staying in homestay style accommodation, living day by day with different Tamang families. The Nepalese people are extremely hospitable, but the Tamang take the saying “guest is god” to heart. Also, as mentioned before, the Langtang region has mountain views that are nothing short of amazing.

What is the trial like?

Along the trail, you’ll see Langtang Lirung (7227m), Ganesh Himal (7422m), and many other peaks.  Between each village, we pass cascading waterfalls, flowing rivers, terraced hillsides, and tip-tops of mountains peeping in the background. If you’re looking for a solid off-the-beaten-path trek with an authentic cultural experience and jaw-dropping Himalayan views, our Tamang Heritage Trek is the right choice!  The Tamang Heritage Trek is newly developed, so it’s best to come to see it before the crowds get there.

The People

The Tamang people are ethnically Tibetan and are followers of Tibetan Buddhism. If you can plan the timing right, you’ll be able to participate in one of the many rituals and/or festivals that take place in the villages.  This depends on the time of the year that you visit. Regardless, you will be able to participate in the daily activities and observe the lifestyle of Tamang families. It will be a valuable experience that you will never forget.

Best Time to Trek

The best time to do the Tamang Heritage Trek is between the months of October and December, as they provide the clearest skies.  The next best is from March to May.  It is possible to do the trek in other months, but ask us and we’ll give you advice and information regarding those times.
