Tamang Heritage Trek [$770 per person]
Tamang Heritage Trek is an exciting hike to the Himalayas that offers travelers a glimpse of the daily lives of Tamang people who are Nepalese mountain dwellers in the Langtang region. Throughout our journey, we will be rewarded with outstanding views of the Himalayas and get acquainted with the culture and traditions of the Tamangs who live in close locality to the mighty Langtang.
The Himalayan Heritage Trail is similar to the other Langtang Trekking Region in Nepal. Trekkers must drive through terraced farmlands, small hamlets and forests on Rasuwa Kathmandu Highway to get to the starting point of Syabrubesi. Journey is not ordinary, as trekkers will be able to see the Himalayas together with numerous Lama Village excursions.
The best time to visit Himalayan Heritage Trail is during the Spring and Autumn season. During the spring, days are longer and warmer, and rhododendrons blooms in the hills towards the end of this period. During autumn the weather is mild, neither too cold. The skies are clear and it is the ideal season for mountaineering and trekking.
