Tamang Heritage Trail Trek for families is a short yet unique trek in Langtang region opened to visitors only since 2004. The trek is perfect for families who are limited on time and want to experience the true beauty of Nepal without long and hard walks. Tamang Heritage Trail for Families 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 11-days journey begins upon your arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu followed by the 6-7 hours long drive to Sybrubensi 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 family gets an opportunity to experience the Buddhist way of living and the unique architecture of their houses. The family 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 the historical fort of Rasuwagadhi.
