The Tamang Heritage and Langtang Trek is one of our favorite treks and we’d be delighted to help you explore this impressive region in Nepal.

Tamang Heritage Trail is an excellent Trek along an easy going route combined with authentic villages that offer a homestay program in traditional homes, and great views of mountains in Tibet, Langtang and Ganesh Himalas, set against, rhododendrons, forests.

It is a rewarding trekking experience with a strong focus on local culture. The trail lies in one of the bordering regions between Nepal and Tibet. There is a long history of trade and cultural exchange which enriched the local culture and the ritual practices on both sides of the border.

Developed by the Tourism for Rural Poverty Alleviation Program, the "Tamang Heritage Trail" is one of the newly developed trails that are less crowded and put a stronger emphasis on culture than some of the more classic trails. The Tamang Heritage Trail gives you an idea of ancient lifestyles but also offers stunning sceneries and (as a reward) relaxing. The Tamang Heritage trail is a very pleasant trek without technical difficulty. A remarkable cultural experience set in an impressive environment.

Another attraction of this trip is stunning views of glaciers, amazingly photogenic. Rich in cultural heritage, a pleasant altitude profile and stunning nature - the Langtang valley trek has plenty of things to offer. Incredible Himalayan Sherpa Adventure will help you make the most of this unique experience.

The Langtang valley to the north of Kathmandu lies just south of the Tibetan border, sandwiched between the main Himalayan range to the north and a slightly lower range of snowy peaks to the south. This made it an important region for trade over several centuries and a focal point for cultural exchange.

It offers a wide range of landscapes and sceneries. The route follows the river up the valley through various types of forests (in particular the impressive rhododendron forests) and takes you from a warm, almost tropical climate to the harsher environment at higher altitude. Along the way, there is a good chance of observing wild boar, deer, several types of monkeys and even some of the larger predators as bears and leopards, not to mention the many kinds of wildflowers. As soon as we get out of the forest, we will have the impressive Langtang Lirung mountain (7246m) right in front of you. The route then continues along the Langtang mountain range with all the famous glaciers and beautiful snow-covered peaks.

Paying tribute to the rich cultural aspects of the regions, we’ll lead us through the Tibetan communities within the Langtang Valley. During the trek, we will have many opportunities to get a better understanding of their culture and way of life at high altitude. And we ’ll certainly enjoy their hospitality.

We start with 5-6 hours’ jeep journey from Kathmandu to Syabrubensi. On the way, we gather many impressions of rural Nepal. We then start trekking in earnest making our way through the small villages along the trail. we will observe local customs and traditions, chat with locals and, of course, drive a good bargain when shopping for locally produced handicrafts.
