The Tamang Heritage Trek in the Langtang region is a newly opened trek that offers a beautiful journey, allowing you to enjoy magnificent mountain views and gain insight into the unique Tamang culture. Along the way, you’ll traverse through green meadows and rhododendron forests.

After several days of trekking, a rejuvenating experience awaits as you can bathe in the hot healing waters of the natural spring at Tatopani, which lies on the route from Gatlang to Chilime.

Nagthali was once a popular meditation center for local monks and priests, and you’ll have the opportunity to explore this historic site.

Continuing on, you’ll reach Timure, located on the old trade route to Tibet. Here, a fort at Rasuwagadi serves as a historical reminder of the enduring Nepal-Tibet relations that have existed for centuries.

Briddim, a picturesque Tamang village nestled in the lap of Langtang Himal, offers warm cultural hospitality through home-stays run by community members. The panoramic views of Langtang Lirung (7245m), Langtang Kerung, Chumse Danda ridge (5122m), Jugal Himal, Dorje Lakpa (6789m), Ganesh Himal, Paldor Peak, Shringi Himal, Manaslu, and other mountain ranges complete this remarkable trekking experience.

Highlights of the Tamang Heritage Trek:

  1. Enjoy the rejuvenating hot spring waters at Tatopani.
  2. Witness the resilience of the Tamang community as they rebuild after the 2015 earthquake.
  3. Embark on a cultural trek that is highly suitable for families and children.
  4. Be enchanted by the spectacular views of Ganesh Himal, Langtang, and the Gosainkund range.
