Trip Overview

Tamang Heritage Trail is one of the lastly explored tourism destinations in Langtang region of Nepal Himalaya. Tamang Heritage trail or Tamang Heritage Trekking starts from Kathmandu after we make about 8-9 hours drive from Kathmandu. Being a laterly explored area, we will have no option for tourist bus services. However, we could arrange a private 4WD drive from Kathmandu with additional amount, which is highly recommended.

Once you reach at Syabru-besi- a small local town, we start our journey to Gatlang. Gatlang is a beautiful village with the major proposition of Tamang people. In a way, we would even term the whole Langtang region as Tamang Region as more than 90 percentage people of this region are Tamang people. So this trekking is also called Tamang Heritage Trail. The ever smiling and very honest Tamangs are mailny Buddhists and Hindus by religion. The following day we start our trek to Tatopani and we will stay at a local house tonight. After Tatopani, we pass other interesting villages like Thuman, Briddim, Lama Hotel, and finally we reach to Langtang village after few days walk.

On the following day we spend in Langtang Village, we will make an interesting walk to Kyanjin Gompa- a very popular buddhist monastry in Nepal. Here we will stay a night and than trek down to Lama Hotel again. On the following day, we will walk down from Lama Hotel to Syabru- Besi and sta overnight here. The following day we drive back to Kathmandu and stay in a hotel in Kathmandu.

Overall, Tamang Heritage Trail is one of the best cultural tours in Nepal which has not been explored b many people yet. You are some of the luckiest people to explore such culturally and naturally rich heritages of Nepal.

Day 4: Trek from Syabru Besi to Gatlang
We begin our trek from Syabru Besi, heading off towards Gatlang village. We get to enjoy amazing glimpses of the Ganesh Himal, Shishapangma, Langtang Lirung and a range of others. We reach our destination village of Gatlang which has houses traditionally made of stones.

Enjoying awesome views of Ganesh and Langtang ranges, we descend to Thangbuchet and pass Chilime Hydropower dam en route. We continue on the trail until we reach Tatopani, which means hot water – by not surprise, you get to enjoy hot springs here. Take a hot dip and be in complete peace and relaxation.

The Tamang village of Thuman is our destination for the day, which we reach after a 6-hour trek from Tatopani. We pass through dense alpine forest on the way, and through Brimdang and slightly uphill, Nagthali settlements. Throughout much of the day, we get to enjoy the views of Ganesh and Langtang ranges. We reach Thuman, where we stay at a local guesthouse.

Day 7: Trek from Thuman to Briddim

Day 9: Trek from Lama Hotel to Langtang Village
A hearty breakfast followed by a trek through the trails that continue through dense forests, some ascents and some descents, passing water chortens and water mills, we reach the Langtang Village.

Day 10: Trek from Langtang Village to Kyanjin Gompa
As we leave Langtang Village, we trek by yak pastures as well as humongous wall inscriptions of prayer, festooned with prayer flags. On the way to Kyanjin Gompa, we cross several wooden bridges to reach Kyanjin Gompa, which is surrounded by mountains on all sides. The trek is relatively shorter on this day so you have a plenty of time to explore the region, enjoying the views of the mountains, observing the glaciers and icefalls and watching the rare birds and yaks.

Day 11: Trek from Kyanjin Gompa to Lama Hotel
The trek from Kyanjin Gompa to Lama Hotel is mostly a descent. The 5-hour walk takes us through forests following the river beneath.
