Overview

Tamang Heritage Trail Trek is a journey of delight. It is an easy and lively experience for any enthusiastic travelers who would love to spend some quality time amidst nature experiencing the local folks’ rich culture and routine life. Accessible from Nepal’s capital town, Kathmandu, the trail is still untouched by any modernization. The trail treasures the authenticity of nature, wildlife, biodiversity, and the traditional lifestyle of people.

As the name depicts, Tamang Heritage Trail Trek is an exciting trip that introduces you to the heritages of the Tamang community people living in Nepal’s Langtang region. Tamang people are one of the many ethnic groups found in Nepal. They have their own unique culture, customs, values, languages, traditions, songs, dances, festivals, and ways of living. The Tamang villages’ charm in the backdrop of the beautiful Himalayas gives a classic touch to this trek. No wonder Tamang Heritage Trek is one favorite amongst those who have opted for the trek.

Tamang Heritage Trail Trek–An authentic Off the Beaten trekking

Travelers do not get so frequently around the trail. Lying next to Langtang valley, the trail is one of the seldom-visited trails of the region. Though less traveled, it is nothing less than other treks in the region. The major reason for fewer visitors is its off-beaten nature trail.

The infrastructures like guesthouses, teahouses, etc. are not so abundantly available in the route. But the fact is an advantage for an adventurous traveler who would love to unleash the raw appeal of nature. We consider the trail as a gem enhanced by local culture and Buddhism religion. As you walk past the trail, you will relish the intensifying views of mountain peaks in the Langtang and Ganesh Himal ranges.

It’s all about Tamang villages and Tamang culture.

It connects the Tamang Heritage Trail to Tibet. In the ancient era, the trail used to be a trade route between Nepal and Tibet. Many Tibetans came to Nepal and settled here as Tamang people. No wonder they have so much resemblance to their culture, tradition, and lifestyle. They depend on agriculture and animal husbandry for livelihood. They live a simple and productive life.

Did you know? They are creative and perfect with woodworks? One can see their crafts in pillars of houses, windows, bamboo baskets, and many more. Above all, their cheerful and welcoming behavior is heart captivator.

The classic route of Tamang Heritage Trail Trek

First, the trek starts with a short drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubensi. The trail traverses slowly and gradually through the traditional Tamang villages. Then, to an off-beaten trail full of fields, cultivated lands, and forests enriched with wildlife and biodiversity. If lucky, you may get a glimpse of few wild lives inhabited within the jungles in the trail.

As the people in the route follow the Buddhism religion, one can see the colorful prayer flags and stupas on the way. We walk past village-like Galtang to Tatopani. Tatopani is popular for natural hot water springs. From Tatopani, the trail leads us to traditional Tamang villages like Thuman and Briddim.  Last, we explore the people and lifestyle in the villages and return to Syabrubensi to end the trip.

Heaven Himalaya offers some guaranteed trips to Tamang Heritage Trail. If interested, you can join the group or contact us for a private trip. For the best trekking experience, plan your trip from March to May or from September to November. On top of all, we offer the best travel services where you can enjoy Nepal’s natural fantasies and cultural richness with no worries.

On the way to Briddim, we can encounter various trekkers heading towards the Langtang trek. A walk to Briddim is mostly about Tamang culture, Tamang people, and their way of living.

Best Days of My Life

I and my colleagues visited Nepal back in the year 2017. I was not an experienced hiker but anyway chose Annapurna Base Camp Trek with a trekking agency in Nepal. It was like a challenge for me to trek to the 4000 m altitude, but Mr. Ram helped us in every way possible. He was there from the start of our trekking journey in Pokhara to our end days in Kathmandu. Ram kept pushing me forward and even waited for me to catch the other team. He guided me from choosing plain food to meditating. Although I was a victim of altitude sickness and couldn't enjoy the trek to the fullest, I am very grateful to have chosen him.

Annapurna Base Camp is a beautiful place in the Himalayas. The Gurung Village, Poonhill, Pokhara every place was just outstanding.
I have now developed a hiking attitude, and I have been training for the EBC trek now. I can't wait to visit the Himalayas again.

Perfectly Organized Upper Mustang Trek

All thanks to Mr. Ram for organizing the Upper Mustang, trekking perfectly from beginning to end. I, along with my bunch of friends, had a delightful experience with the Heaven Himalaya team. For us, it is the best trekking agency in Nepal. The guides and porters were very flexible and took care of everything around us.

I recommend everyone to try these young guys to go hiking in Nepal.

Wonderful Trekking Experience

My wife and I visited Upper Mustang and were lucky to have chosen Heaven Himalaya. We had a wonderful experience trekking in Upper Mustang. As soon as we landed in TIA, we were welcomed by Ram. He was very easy and responsive to work with. He explained all the queries we had and gave a brief description of the tour. As we were watching videos and reading blogs about Upper Mustang, we had a lot of expectations about the place and the trekking agency we were working with. We had a private 18-day tour with a porter. And to be honest, we found everything beyond our expectations. The hills, mountains, monasteries were all amazing, especially Lo Manthang is a great place to visit. Our guide was also equally supportive and friendly. The team made our trek more enjoyable. While writing this, it reminded me of the days we had on the trails. Thank You again for the wonderful experience. Best wishes to Jason and Esha. We will definitely love to return and probably do the Everest base camp Trek this time.

Trip of a lifetime- Annapurna Circuit Trek

Heaven Himalaya Team offers a magnificently arranged trekking involvement in Nepal. Ramhari answered instantly to all my messages. They make a solid effort to make your vacation in Nepal an extraordinary one and genuinely went well beyond my desires.

I couldn't remember the name of the guide but my boy, you were more than amazing. I wish you good luck in the days to come.

Everything from pickup to trekking in the mountains was very professional with excellent service.

So, I strongly suggest everyone and will trek with Heaven Himalaya again in the future.

Glorious Experience in EBC Trek

We did an EBC trek with Ram and his team back in April 2019, and it was a glorious experience. Ram is a very knowledgeable, resourceful, and very helpful guide. 2 of us got unwell during the trek, and he was very prompt and took care of us in any way that was available.

We enjoyed our chat and his sense of humor along the trail and at the teahouses. He even got us a special breakfast and pickle salad at Namche Bazaar and always fulfilled the strange request with our dietary needs. EBC trek is amazing. With Ram, it is even more spectacular. Thanks for the amazing trip. Looking forward to island peak climb in the future.
