Tamang Heritage Trail trekking is a wonderful opportunity to visit Langtang region in the Himalayan belt and learn about Tamang culture and local biodiversity. Tamang is perhaps the oldest ethnic group in Nepal, who are mostly found in the Himalayan and hilly region. Originally from Tibet, Tamangs are said to have migrated to the country during the reign of King Srongtsen gampo who tied the knot with Nepali princess Bhrikuti, daughter of King Amshuverma and thus share a very close culture to Tibetans.

Tamang Heritage trekking offers a look into the tradition and culture of Tamang people who follow Buddhist religion. You will follow the traditional trail that was once used by traders to transport salt from Tibet. You will visit the beautiful villages of Gatlang, Goljung, Thuman, Briddim etc. You will come across several stupas, monasteries, waterfalls and hot springs along the way. All along the trail, enjoy the spectacular views of Langtang ranges including Langtang Lirung, Dorje Lakpa, Ganesh Himal and even Shisha Pangma in Tibet.

There are plenty of community lodges and hotels on the trail and beautifully adorned homes with rich wood engravings.
