Tamang Heritage Trekking

Tamang Heritage Trekking is a place where you will be enjoying the Tamang, the ethnic group of Nepal, culture and their hospitality in real local way. Tamang heritage trekking is located in between two big mountains regions such as Langtang and Ganesh Himal. Yes, Tamang people are most welcoming people in Nepal. Nepalese culture is mostly closed culture but its exception that these Tamang are amazingly open people. With the relatively easy access from Kathmandu we ascend the road north towards the Tibetan border and enjoy a relatively gentle trek through picturesque villages, terraced fields, and peaceful valleys where only the most discerning trekkers step. Panoramic mountain views of the peaks around, soak in the natural hot spring in Tatopani, local fort, monasteries, local architecture make you enjoy the trek. MRA offers you one relaxed day at Bridhim which allows you to discover the local tradition of the wonderful Tamang Heritage site.

Tamang Heritage Trekking trail was supported by the UNDP, Department for International Development to develop the region where the program was run by the Tourism for Rural Poverty Alleviation Program. Because of these many reasons, this heritage site offers live cultural experience to you.

Tamang Heritage Trekking offers the trekker an awesome wilderness experience through beautiful landscapes of alpine terrain, flat meadows and rhododendron forests. Tamang Heritage trekking is a must for those wishing to experience another side of Nepal. The Tamang people are believed to be the descendants of Tibetans from Kerung who intermingled with the inhabitants of the Helambu. As such the Tamang people still have many customs with a strong Tibetan influence.  Tamang Heritage trekking offers a unique mix of mountain adventure and Himalayan culture, from ancient monasteries, Tibetan stupas, plentiful, colorful prayer flags, to majestic waterfalls and breathtaking snow capped mountain peaks including views of Langtang Lirung, Langtang Kerung, the Ganjala Pass, Dorje Lakpa, Ganesh Himal to name but a few.

Tamang heritage trekking starts from Syaprubesi, the north of Kathamndu, 5 hours drive and this trekking can be made six days to eight days. It goes via the places like Gatlang, Chilime, Tatopani, Rasuwagadhi, Thuman, Briddhim and back to Syaprubesi. It’s a circuit trek where you will be doing lots of ascend and descends so we don’t call it easy trek, let’s say, it’s a moderate difficult trek.
