Tamang Heritage Trail Trek is a short yet unique trek in Langtang region opened to visitors only since 2004. The trek is perfect for those who are limited on time and want to experience the true beauty of Nepal without long and hard walks. Tamang Heritage Trail Trek is one of the treks that offer the never-ending beautiful scenery of the Nepalese hills along with an insight of the traditional Tamang culture and their way of life. 

The 9-days journey begins upon your arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu followed by the 6-7 hours long drive to Syabrubensi in next day, the starting point of the trek. The Tamang Heritage Trail Trek features exploring the rich traditional culture and age-old way of life of the Tamang community. The trekker gets an opportunity to experience the Buddhist way of living and the unique architecture of their houses. The trekker also comes across different ancient monasteries, Chortens, stupas, and Mani walls along the way. Besides culture, the trekking trail is equally rich scenically, offering beautiful landscapes of sub-alpine terrain, lush forests full of rhododendrons and pines, and breathtaking mountain views. Majestic views of the peaks of Langtang Himal and Ganesh Himal ranges accompany you during the trek. The trekking trail also passes through Tatopani (a natural hot spring), the secret lake of Parvati Kund, the picturesque village of Gatlang and Briddhim. The trek is ideal for all travelers from all over the world as it provides you ample time to interact with the local Tamang people and befriends their children.
