The Tamang Heritage Trail is located between Langtang and the Ganesh Himal in the District of Rasuwa in Nepal. This trek takes you through a culturally rich region steeped in Tibetan tradition. The local Tamang people have their own unique language, dress and customs and they are some of the warmest and most welcoming people in Nepal.
Langtang is often considered to be the third major trekking area of Nepal (after Everest and Annapurna regions) and it shares many of the attractions of those famous areas – beautiful mountain views, a rich culture and good facilities for trekkers.
This Tamang Heritage Trail tour provides a variety of experiences with Tamang rituals, Tibetan culture, festivals, traditional architecture and costumes ensuring you gain an intimate insight into the local culture.
You can enjoy a hot bath in the healing hot-water spring at Tatopani before reaching Nagthali and the ancient monasteries and houses adorned with rich wood engravings at Thuman provide an unforgettable experience.
There are spectacular views of the Langtang Himalaya on offer, opportunities for intercultural exchange with the local Tamang people and also a chance to see Umbrella’s work in the communities first hand. The Tamang Heritage Trail is not to be missed!
