The Tamang Heritage Trek sits as one of the best hospitable treks in the Langtang Region, and most probably within the whole country. Not only does the trek yells Atithi Devo Vaba which means Guests are God but also travels along with the uninterrupted scenery of the Tamang settlements.
The trekking to the Tamang villages of the Langtang Region starts with a drive to the village of Syabrubesi via Dhunche. The same route is taken as the commencement point by many trekkers hiking the Langtang Valley Trek. While the valley trek continues towards the Lama Hotel, our trek sees us at Gatlang (2238 meters). This village is based typically on the traditional Tibetan culture and lifestyle, hence, a lot of things here denote Tibetan tradition. From this village, the views of the snowcapped peaks, Manaslu and Ganesh seem more than real. Out of Gatlang and our fall sees us at the hot springs of Tatopani. As the name suggests, Tatopani is a place with several warm springs in and around the village. Relax in the pools to soothe your body.
Out of Tatopani, and now, we're at Brimdang. Uphill hike sees us at Nagthali Danda and further ahead marks our entry at the Thuman village. While here, savor in the views of the Langtang Lirung peaks including the Ganesh, Gosaikunda, and Kerung peaks. Last but not the least, our trail follows a trek along the Timure village towards Rasuwagadhi and farther towards Bridim. Bridim stays as the final Tamang town before the end of this trekking package. During our trekking here, our hike allows extra time to explore the 19th Century Rasuwagadhi Fort. Back to Syabrubesi and a drive to the capital city of Nepal to end our trip. The trip ends in 9 days; however, this package can be tailor-made to suit your needs.
