The Tamang Heritage trek is about trekking through the trail in Langtang that was previously not allowed to trek for the public. The word “Tamang” is named after an indigenous group of Mongolian tribe that mostly populates the region. The trek takes us through many villages in the region where you get to observe traditional cultural lifestyle and way of living of Tamang people. You get close to them and try to understand the traditional culture and lifestyle. The rich culture makes them special and unique. Also, there are farmlands where the people work on. People are found to be rearing different domestic animals as well.
There are very few settlement areas and sparse vegetation when we reach the higher altitudes. People rear yaks for dairy products and there are also cheese factories in the region. We can see people transporting goods through donkeys and mules as there is no transportation available and no proper roads built. People are mostly involved in hotel business sector. There are stone built teahouses, lodges and restaurants at different resting places. We take rest, have our lunch and stay for the night at tea houses along our way. The teahouses are built around the region to cater to the visitors. We can also visit many temples and monasteries along the way. Another interesting part of this trek is enjoying hot springs at Tatopani.
The trek takes you closer to the exquisite natural beauty of hilly landscapes and through beautiful valleys and dense rhododendron forests. Also, some wild animals can be spotted around the forest area. You can also have some glimpses mountain peaks peeking through the green hills.
