The Tamang Heritage trail trek in Nepal is the insight of incredible culture and tradition of Tamang community. This trek is a marvelous cultural trekking experience in the northern Himalayas of Nepal. The Tamang Heritage Trek by the Himalaya Land Treks is community-based trekking that lays between the Ganesh Himal and Langtang ranges. Witnessing the incredible mountain view of Langtang Lirung, Ganesh Himal and the Tibetan vista from the Nagthali viewpoints appears to be mind-blowing. The 10 days Tamang Heritage trek starts on your arrival to Kathmandu. The trip is a less explored and culturally rich trekking destination of Nepal in the Rasuwa district. You get to explore the following major highlights during the trek:
The trek takes you to the most beautiful valley of Nepal, Langtang Valley. The valley is blessed with many natural resources. It is also known as the valley of a glacier. With ethnic Tamang people, this region is very famous for its natural beauty and cultural heritage. Through the Tamang Heritage trail, you also get to visit ancient Buddhist Monastries that have great religious importance.
We drive to Sybrubensi from where we begin our trek. We get to explore many ethnic villages, explore their way of living and their tradition. We explore the Tamang villages of Gatlang, Tatopani, Nagthali Ghyang, Thuman, Timure, and Buddhism. We walk to Gatlang village from Sybrubensi.
The Tamang community has its cultural importance. The Tamang villages let us explore the enormous culture and traditions, arts and lifestyle, and history and architecture. They own their language, Costume, and social structure. They have unique food during festivals. They follow their unique rituals from birth to death. There are long lists of rituals they follow from birth to death. Trek to Tamang Heritage is a golden opportunity to explore and learn Tamang culture and tradition from the native.
The valley is also blessed with rare flora and fauna. You can spot endangered species during the trek so close to yourself. Endangered species like Red Panda, Musk Deer, and the Himalayan Thar can be spotted on the way. Along with this many important herbal and medicinal plants can be spotted throughout the way of National Park.
The best time to do Tamang Heritage Trek is during autumn and spring. It is also approachable in other seasons depending on the conditions. The occasion of Tamang New Year “Loshar” in February will also be the best time to learn their culture and explore more about this unique tradition.
