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.

    Lifetime Experience with Nepal Ascent Treks

    Katy Walsh
    May 29, 2018
    I and my best friend traveled to India back in 2017. We did the full triangle of India and near the end of our trip we crossed the border to Kathmandu. We wanted to finish up our great adventure with a trek through the Himalayas. We met with Sittal from Nepal Ascent Treks who was very helpful in helping us pick the best trek that suited what we wanted to do. We were thinking about trying the Everest base camp trek but due to bad weather and being limited with our time we ended up choosing to do the Tamang Heritage Trek instead. We were booked to go with a group but a couple of people in the group fell ill and couldn't go. We thought the trip would be cancelled but we ended up going on the 10-day trek just the two of us and our tour guide Ram. It's probably the best trek/trip I have ever been on and I am so glad that we ended up doing the Tamang heritage trip. Every day felt different. The vegetation seemed to change all the time making you feel like you're in a different country on a different trek. The first day was super warm with burnt grass up steep mountains with great views. The next it was like a jungle with waterfalls, then snow, then fields...etc...just so beautiful and such an unbelievable experience. Ram is a great tour guide. He knows those mountains and the locals so well. Ram is professional and organized but also has a great sense of humor which just made the trip for us. Definitely one of my most memorable moments in my life.
