Tamang Heritage Trail Trek

Tamang Heritage Trail Trek is a short but captivating trekking route in the lower area of the Langtang region. TheTamang Heritage Heritage Trail is fascinating due to the authentic lifestyle and traditions showcased by the locals residing in beautiful villages. The cultural exploration is without a doubt one of the main highlights of this trek, complemented by the beautiful views of the mountains you get along the journey. The route takes you through beautiful rhododendron and other alpine forests, as birds chirping sounds like music to your ears. Thuman, Timure, Tatopani, Gatlang, Briddim are a few of the many villages this trail takes you through.

Tamang people present their culture as preserved by their ancestors. For anyone traveling from a different part of the world, their lifestyle may even seem so foreign. This trek is a beautiful way to explore the rich culture of these people living in the Langtang region. You can see terraced hillsides surrounding quaint villages. It is particularly important to go with a guide on this journey to enrich your perspective on the local culture. Also, the language barrier can be quite difficult to navigate and the trail is not well marked. Living amongst the Tamang people, visiting the monasteries, and being surrounded by natural beauty make for an unforgettable trip. In several villages, you get to see cultural shows performed by locals. Besides cultural exploration, other activities include visiting Parvati Kunda Lake in Gatlang, diving into the hot water of Tatopani and visiting the historical site of Rasuwagadi. 

The trail lies in the region of Langtang National Park, so there is always a chance for you to see exotic animals living in the region. Like any other treks in the Langtang region, you are welcomed in every step by the views of mountains like Langtang Lirung, Langtang Kerung, Dorje Lakpa, Ganesh, etc.

It depends upon the pace of your walking and the trail. Normally, you have to walk for 6/7 hours a day. In some days you can complete the trek within 3/4 hours.

Yes, tea houses/homestays provide you with the charging facility. However, most teahouses charge extra for this.

The trek is considered to be moderately difficult. You do not have to walk in a high altitude region but you need some level of physical fitness. It might get difficult to walk for hours with small kids. However, if all of your family members can walk for 5/6 hours a day in somewhat steep slopes, you can go for it.
